No time for patients. TERRIBLE beside manner.

I would not recommend Dr. Akhavon as a medical doctor for the lack of modesty and mindfulness for her patients.
in Visalia |
Dr. Akhavon is something else.... On one occasion, called me fat in such a rude way. Didn't even say anything else after that... She just completely left the room after calling me fat . Said you honestly can't lose 20 pounds?!!! The next time I went, When i asked to get high blood pressure medication, Dr. Akhavon replied, I'm the Doctor, here. Such a rude woman, so arrogant with no class or manners. Makes me (as a patient) feel terrible about my health and makes me feel insecure.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
