We have known Dr. Hamid Salehi for years and during this time what has stood out, is his honesty, incisive diagnostic ability and of course his intelligence. As our daughter’s Neurologist he has always treated her with compassion and exemplary care that we take for granted from a specialist in Neurology. I recall receiving a call from our daughter of the disturbing symptoms she was experiencing. I immediately called Dr. Salehi’s office and scheduled a same day appointment. He scheduled an MRI for the very next morning and called us of our daughters diagnosis. The time-sensitive medication/ treatment was immediately started that evening. This was an extraordinary set of events set forth by Dr. Salehi that allowed for our daughter to be treated within 24 hours. His attentiveness led to our daughter making a full recovery. We feel we owe so much to Dr. Salehi and feel truly blessed to have him as our daughter’s Neurologist and more importantly a trusted family friend. He is the BEST!

After suffering with severe migraines and vertigo and seeing several doctors with no real improvement of symptoms, I was blessed to find Dr. Salehi. He is a brilliant and compassionate doctor, working until the root cause was found. Finally there is light at the end of the tunnel. Dr. Salehi has found the perfect treatment for me of medication and physical therapy to ease my symptoms, and was always available for questions and support during this during time. I highly recommend Dr. Salehi to anyone in need of the best neurologist in South OC.

Dr. Salehi spent five minutes with me. Told me I have parkinsons then he went out the door. I didn't get to ask him any questions. Going down the hall he said he was sending a prescription to my pharmacy. He didn't tell me what it was for or what it would do for me. He was cold and very uncaring

I wasted an entire year of my life with Dr Salehi. While the office staff are friendly, they are not helpful in the slightest. They say they’ll call you back with info needed - they never do. I never once had a voicemail returned. You call the next day to ask if they have the info needed “Oh we’re still working on it”. And the cycle continues: for weeks and months. I’ve been dealing with migraine headaches for a decade and he thinks your own words means nothing. My treatment w/ my last neurologist was working- when I tried to continue it through him it was like pulling teeth! All he wanted to do was suggest other medications and PUSH it even when I tell him that didn’t work for me. After months I finally sked him point blank “Why won’t you just do the treatment that was worked and help me?” His response was that it was so much paperwork and work for him, he didn’t want to have to do so much work. So my pain and suffering isn’t as important and the job he’s literally being paid to do

Because of insurance I switched neurologists to this doctor. He “told” me questions, never mentioned the chronic condition for which I am being treated, disregarded previous testing, took a video of my hands without explaining why, tried to pidgeonhole me into having symptoms I do NOT have, treated me like a drug seeker and held up my prescription until after an unnecessary MRI, and left me with the suggestion of genetic testing for Huntington’s Disease which is not in my family at all! Not cool

I have suffered from severe migraines and headaches my entire life. To make things even worse, I was recently in a terrible auto collision where I really messed my neck and shoulder among other things up. I have been diagnosed with CRPS (chronic regional pain syndrome). My life has improved drastically since meeting Dr. Salehi. He's the absolute best - hears you out, explains everything, and is absolutely brilliant. Could not be happier with this doctor.

My appointment began with the Dr. greeting me in the waiting room and personally walking me to his office. The appointment was non rushed and very thorough. The entire staff mirrored the doctors demeanor. This was a staff that pre-dated HMOs and big insurance. They care about the patients issue, well being and solving the problem. Thank you.
