I have been seeing Dr. Zahabi for eighteen years and I have nothing but a great experience with her. She is dedicated to helping her patients. I have a very complicated lupus and requires constant change in medications and she always has a plan of action. She is kind with a great bed side manner and always explains thing and answers all questions. I would recommend her to my friends and family . I have had nothing but a great experience with her and her staff.

After 15 years of seeing the same Dr, I saw Dr. Zahabi. She wanted me to taper off 40mg of prednisone over less than a week. Everybody knows that's not only crazy but dangerous. But I trusted her. I ended up in the ER in adrenal shock and in crisis. When I went home, I called her office and her front office told me that they had never heard of that. No one called me back. I went ahead with her bloodwork, told the nurse. I got zero response, no concern, not one comment. I won't be back!
