Dr. Ziyar's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ziyar "Dr. Ziyar completed his Psychiatry residency at University of California San Francisco from 1994-1998."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ziyar "Professionalism is the highest ethical standard and moral development in personal and professional life. Ethics by definition is the philosophical study of moral values and rules and a pattern of behavior that might be either right or wrong. A physician must remain loyal to the highest moral principles and should respect the rights of patients.The underlying values result in behavior that is being displayed to the outside world. Our actions are being shaped by what we believe and that affects the way we interact with others. A physician must show consideration to the needs of patients and their families in regards to their concern about the treatment efficacy and improvement of the patient's condition. It is crucial to inform the patients about their illness, and to use standard therapeutic procedures and fully discuss the risks and benefits associated with treatment modality, other available alternatives, and to explain the expected outcome of a suggested plan of care."

Fresno, CA |
Dr. Ziyar is extremely empathic. He listens well. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking psychiatric care.
in Clovis, CA |
This guy should not be practicing medicine. All the other reviews are spot on, he is totally incompetent, unprofessional and very shady. I question how he ever got a license to be called a doctor let alone a psychiatrist. He does not understand the english language well enough to have an intelligent conversation which means he is unable to adequately diagnose and treat any condition. On top of that he is totally dis-interested and shows zero care for his patients. He often passes patients on to

Good doctor. I followed our treatment plan to a tee and everything is great so far. I went to another doctor before and they kept making me come back for visits before starting treatment which felt like a way for them to milk my time and money.

I did not have a good experience as a patient in my visits with this MD. Main issue is that he doesn't really listen to what you are saying, hr just nods his head & waiting for you to finish talking so he can prescribe you meds and off you go. This is only one main issue there where few more that I'm not gonna get into.

Dr. Ziyar and Greg NP helped me during a real hard time. I have seen 2 other Doctors but Dr. Ziyar was the best. They where able find the right medications that worked for me. Both providers are excellent and would highly recommend .
in Selma, CA |
Dr. Ziyar is a good doctor and very skilled. He doesn't waste time with menial issues and tries to get to the root cause of any issues Im facing so we can deal with them, not just passing time to bill me, which I appreciate.

STOP, and investigate your insurance (overly charged)! Dr. Ziyar, is all about the money. I had an appointment with him,"myself only"!He wanted to charge my insurance three times. (For my appointment)!! I was very upset, I felt like he was taking advantage of my insurance, which they pay him very good! He didn't care if that bothered me, I felt like he didnt care for why I was there! Hes having MONEY ISSUES!!
Do you know several different services can be provided in the same visit. for example providing psychotherapy, medication management and so on and the time spend during session, may seems to some one like you if the insurance was charged several time, in fact it is itemization of services provided during the same day. If a surgeon perform Cholecystectomy, and meanwhile perform appendectomy, it will appear like insurance was charged twice on the same surgical operation. STOP did you undersand.

I have very long lasting mental condition, Dr. ziyar helped me a lot to overcome that, his staff is very kind and acomodating schedule base on my needs.
Fresno, CA |
Dr. Ziyar is very kind and patient. The staff, while kind, is incompetent and difficult to work with. If I could do it over again I would go elsewhere.
in Madera, CA |
Hes been very patient dealing with my son over the years....and anyone who has a loved one getting treatment for addiction knows that is no easy task and almost NEVER goes according to plan. He could have turned him away on several occasions, but when my son needed him most he was always there. He's not trying to squeeze every penny out of him and his family either which is also very common with that type of treatment. Im pleased to say my son is doing very well right now thanks to his help.
in Fresno, CA |
Great doctor that got to the point in treatment of my condition.
in Fresno CA |
Very poor on keeping on time of appointments. Always has a turn over in his front office. I have made to pay cash twice as the doctor kept saying he did not take my insurance but he is on the list for Anthem a Blue Cross as a contracted provider. His receptionist has no knowledge of insurance or billing- not her fault, but whichever billing service he is using is misinforming him.
