He may say he accepts your insurance, but when you show up they ask for money up front. We went in for the appt. and Dr. Fakheri did not just want our copay. The office staff said they wanted $150 up front (my copay was $30) and said if the insurance company covers it the balance will be refunded. When I asked why this was the case, Dr. Fakheri came out of the office to tell me to find another doctor. Incredibly rude. I'm glad I didn't have to see this doctor. AVOID THIS DR. AT ALL COSTS.

Extremely rude and condescending. Also waiting time is ridiculous.

I would not even give him 1 star because I consider him a criminal. He diagnosed me with narrow angle glaucoma on both eyes and insisted to have surgery on my next day off for both eyes at the same time. Likely I went for second opinion with glaucoma specialist and discovered that my eyes are absolutely healthy. I encourage everybody to stay away from him as far as possible. HE WILL DESTROY YOU in the blink of an eye. Always inform insurance company .

Dr. Fakherri ordered over 10K worth of tests on my wife, then refused to see her or believe the test results from a renowned nuerologists. What a waste iof time and money. Never returns calls, nor does he advise patients properly. Do not wate your time, money, or trust in this Dr. ,

He is thorough with his physical exams, but his bedside manner is lacking. Very short wait for the appointment.
