I had just moved to the area and was looking for a new doc. to fill my rxs, which I've been taking for years. He outright refused to fill any of my ADHD meds (which I've taken for years) and would only prescribe 2 weeks worth anti-opioid cravings drugs. Basically I had to choose between being able to focus at work and not going through PAWS. I had no such problem with my doc back home. I'm astounded he has such high reviews on google.

I had a great experience at my first visit with Dr. Ziyar. I was seen by his PA David. David was very thorough and pleasant. He answered all my questions and felt comfortable during the intake. Dr. Ziyar, followed up with me via email to make sure I was taken care of to my expectations. I have never been asked personally by a physician by email how my visit was. Great experience

Did not have a good experience, there is a psychiatrist for everyone I guess. Dictating thoughts about my answers mid session. Expensive and not worth going again.

Dr. Ziyar is an outstanding psychiatrist who takes the time to get to know his patients. He cares a lot about his patients and does whatever he can to help them in any way possible. I am a 4th year medical student who has worked alongside many physicians in the past, and I can say with the utmost confidence that Dr. Ziyar is one of the best. He has all the characteristics of an outstanding physician, and he puts his patients as his first priority and spends as much time as necessary to help them. I absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a psychiatrist in Fresno. He is knowledgeable, empathetic, caring, helpful, and respectful. Outstanding psychiatrist who I recommend to everyone.

Dr. Ziyar is the most wonderful, warm and empathetic Psychiatrist I’ve ever seen and since I’ve had depression issues all my life I’ve seen several different Psychiatrists. He by far is the best. He really listens to you in order to prescribe and adjust you medications to get the best overall effect. There have been many times I didn’t even want to get out of bed but since seeing him for the last 4 years my life has changed and I’m able to function and overcome this depression that at one time was horrible. I’m blessed to have found Dr. Ziyar and would recommend him to my family and loved ones!
