What People Say About Dr. Houshang Aminian, MD

He never remembers my son, even after years. He’s rude and disorganized, consistently messing up prescriptions and appointments. He requires more appointments than necessary for no reason. He doesn’t listen, barely looks at us, and is basically a pill dispenser. We are requesting a new doctor at our appointment tomorrow.

He should not be practicing medicine anymore. Rude and hostile at all times. Do yourself a favor choose another provider

Dosen't know what meds my kid is on. Wastes time verifying wrong information on his computer that we changed last time and the time before. Scary. Foster kids deserved better as do AZ taxpayers.

I've been a patient of Dr Aminian for several years, and am completely satisfied. He is respectful, polite, and entirely professional each and every time I see him. He has always answered all my questions, explained my condition and medications, and has also explained my other options. He is not a warm teddy bear, your grandpa or your therapist. But he cares for his patients appropriately -- as a psychiatrist.
