This doctor is the worst! He is always about money and what works to his benefit. A patient of his was very sick and instead of finding a doctor to work on her, he suggests going to another doctor that wouldn't even look at her because she didn't have the right insurance. Dr. A. did not assist in finding another doctor for her. Going forward he never followed up on his patient. Poor excuse of a doctor that should retire because he is doing it for the wrong reasons!

Update: after going to planned parenthood they confirmed that the excesses Dr Akhavan and his office gave not to refill my birth control were completely bogus. No need for bloodwork to give BC prescription. An OBGYN does not need to be involved. The only reason to demand reoccurring visits shorter than a year is to claim insurance. The way this office treated me and how they prevented me from refilling my prescription was shameful. Thank god for planned parenthood.
