UNPROFESSIONAL AND UNCARING. This is suppose to be a place to help people with mental illness and all they care about is making money. The staff is rude and incompetent and charges you for services you never had. The staff tells you that you are covered by insurance when you are not. I called a few times and got a different answer each time I called including from Ginger. The PA Thomas Bale does not care about you and does not understand medications for depression and anxiety. The website is much better than the people who actually work here.

Avoid this place at all costs. They are completely incompetent. They screwed up my medications, billing, and appointments. I would arrive for a counseling appointment early and by the time the therapist was done the patient scheduled right after me had already shown up. One time I got 'bumped' and went home without seeing anyone. Recently, they sent me a bill out of nowhere claiming I owed a deductible, which wasn't true. Apparently I'm not the only one. If you aren't suicidal before coming here, you will be after the way you will be treated here. The place should be shut down.

I don't know where to even begin... Dr. Zarrabi, somehow, would forget what we had said at our previous appointments every single time. She suggested I go on Viibryd, despite the fact that she should've known fully well that I had already tried it and it was the worst 2 weeks of my life. She also suggested I go on a different medication, again "forgetting" the fact that we tried that already and it didn't work. I don't even have enough characters left to talk about how awful my experience was...

I love my psychiatrist Dr. Zarrabi and therapist Dr. Shenasi! I would recommend this place highly. I like the staff, the wait time is short, I get my refills on time and they take my insurance. It is very busy and they have a lot of patients so sometimes it can get a bit hectic in the waiting room. As far as medication management they know what they're doing. I feel like I got on the right medication right away. Highly recommended.

Yeah, I just had to find another establishment to do my business with. I don't have any personal experience with Dr. Zarrabi but if her front office is any reflection of the care I would have received then I would stay away from her medical practice (Harbor Psychiatry & Mental Health). In my opinion, a lot of the medical staff is on a revolving door process (they come into work and eventually move on to other endeavors). The place just felt like a purgatory for psychiatrists.

My problem is not so much with Dr. Zarrabi but more with her staff. I see one of her nurse practitioners. Today my appointment was canceled an hour before. I’ve been counting down until my appointment bc I’ve had worsening panic attacks. I am out of Xanax (which is not supposed to be stopped cold turkey) as of this morning which was fine bc I was supposed to get a refill today. The office ***** suggested I go the the ER. A few weeks ago I showed up for my appointment and my NP wasn’t there!!!!!

HORRIBLY administered. I desperately needed help for my depression and the moment I called I was greeted with a cold staff. "Currently not accepting new patients." This is not college admissions. Do your job. You're not exclusive.

Dr. Zarrabi's incompetent office staff along with her neglect during a time I needed for her to just call in an order for my medication directly caused me to not only go to the ER because she never got back to me; but also caused me to be physically ill for more than 6 months. After going to several ER's and specialists, finally i learned I was suffering from Cymbalta Syndrome. All of this could have been avoided if she cared enough to call in a prescription

The doctors are great, but the front office is incompetent. Children playing business. If you think your health insurance provider is a nightmare to deal with, avoid these people like the plague.

I took my daughter here in hope we can get some help. But they have a unprofessional front staff. Also there was not much guidance received. So we're just lost in the process. I am not happy at all and seeking another office.

She never greets and is ruthless,and thinks that I don't have any genuine feelings Inspite of me saying that abilify works good on me ,She did not listen,she kept telling me lamictal is for most patients ,which is a over generalization!!Lamictal worked so bad on me..I am seeing her for 2years I somehow had no good feeling on from the beginning and I waited this long because I did not want to judge her!therapists outside her clinic are not valued by her.Most of all she does not keep up her words!

My son Jon never could leave his room for 3 years never trusted any doctors, until I heard aboutDr. ZARRABI, when I told my son that I found one of the best psychiatrist that he needs to see here. Of course he refused but I didn't give up. Even though I never thought he could help. It's been almost 6 months now my son is playing music involved in church leaving his room with NO FEAR......... I would highly recommend anyone that needs psychiatric help PLEASE go see dr ZARRABI.

Dr. Zarrabi is very kind and easy to talk to. She listens and really understands me. She helped me get through a really rough time in my life. I got divorced last year and seeing a psychiatrist really helped. She referred me to a therapist and guided me with medication.
