Orange County, ca |
My fist impression was very good but later it changed. Dr. Massoudi almost killed me by not providing a necessary steroid required after my surgery. Because of his malpractice, I spent a whole week in ICU battling for my life. He never even responded to the doctors from ICU who tried to reach him.

Great surgeon & technician but terrible doctor. Takes forever to get an appt and will reschedules them, sometimes 2-3 times in 90 days. Gives the impression he's only interested in doing surgeries - just tolerates everything else. Didn't bother to see me in the hospital after my surgery. I called due to post-surgery pain and, based on the 1 minute phone conversation with his office manager, he made a diagnosis & offered an rx without even seeing me. The diagnosis turned out to be wrong.

Waited 1 1/2 months for an appointment and then showed up 15 minutes late. Office staff was very rude and said we had to come back in 3 weeks when they had another opening. I have 6 MRIs in the last year that say I am in major pain but they really didn't even care to look. When my little asian wife asked them to have compassion they did not and we left. I said I would call back to reschedule. When my insurance case manager tried to call them back to get an appointment sooner than 3 weeks they s

Had it not been for Dr. Massoudi, there is a good chance I would be paralyzed on my right side. He is a kind, and very considerate takes the time to explain the procedure to be done, in terms you can understand. He cares for all those who are fortunate to have him as their Dr. and if it was possible to add more than 5 stars I would.

Would leave 0 for this team if I could. Absolutely awful staff for Dr Massoudi. Extremely disorganized, lack of patient/dr communication and relationship, RUDE STAFF (Jessica gave us nothing but major attitude... she even hung up on me...TWICE) just totally unprofessional from A to Z. Wouldn't recc this group to anyone!

Horrible dr., bad surgery! Very unresponsive!
Newport Beach, CA |
If there was 0 stars I'd leave it. Horrible service. They run this business just for the money. Nobody cares about their patients. And by the way Massoudi owns Urgent Care in Eastbluff - same story. Same careless people. Shame on you.
in Irvine, CA |
Very professional office and doctor. I hope my surgery coming up goes as smoothly as the pre-op.
in Fullerton, CA |
He is the most proffesional Dr. And not afraid of the establishment when it comes to patient care. I appreciated his confidence and care and knowledge. I had a seven hour surgery and it went as planned. I am very grateful for his precision.
