What People Say About Dr. Haleh Haerian-Ardakani, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
My first and only visit with this doctor. She did not listen to health concerns and became defensive when I asked a question, accusing me of not trusting her. She spent more time telling me about other health issues I had and not the one I went to her for. She wrote unnecessary prescriptions and referrals (one to her doctor husband) that my primary care doctor was already addressing. And after six months I received a bill for the full amount because they got my insurance information wrong.
