I have seen Dr. Banooni for 1 Televisit and 1 In-Person physical. I do not have any pressing health circumstances, just general annual visits. I had long-term prescriptions from before my care with her, and they were refilled. My bloodwork and general health is normal. I do not know how she responds when there is urgent need, but I have found her thus far to be warm, professional, and prompt in the online replies via the patient portal.

Dr Banooni has been my primary care physician for years and she’s fabulous. She’s now my husband’s physician and I’ve recommended her to friends who’ve been happy with her too. She’s very knowledgable and concerned with our health. I’ve emailed her about various issues or referrals or medication refills through the UCLA portal and she or her staff have always responded quickly, often with a return phone call to find out more details about what is going on with me. She’s extremely caring and responsive. Even though we’ve moved further away recently and now have a drive to get to her for our physicals, we are keeping her as our primary care physician. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

I can confirm the prior reviews that she is rude and dismissive. She also told me "it was not her problem" in response to a prescription issue I had. Since this seems to be a standard response she uses I would suggest using any of the other doctors at Motion Picture/UCLA clinics. Save the aggravation and do not deal with Dr. Banooni.

Dr Banooni is the absolute best. I've seen so many doctors since I moved here eight years ago and she is, by far, my favorite. Though we'd never met, she was immediately familiar and we talked like we'd known each other for years. The level of comfort she provides is rarely seen in a doctor's office. Very thankful I found her.

I only had a phone call with Dr. Banooni but her frantic, dismissive and combative attitude was so bad I felt compelled to write a review. I called in during the covid outbreak and understand that the medical industry is getting slammed but I don't think it's an excuse for how unprofessional she was. She relayed no pertinent advice, raised her voice towards me, and was generally demeaning. The anxiety emanating from her was overwhelming and the last thing you want from a doctor. I've seen 2 other doctors at the UCLA clinics and they have been exemplary in their professional services. From reading the other reviews, it seems like she is fine during routine situations, but I, like many others, want a doctor to be reliable during both good and bad times.

At first Dr. Banooni was super sweet and very caring. As long as you don't ask her for anything she's great. But as soon as I needed something from her things became a nightmare. I needed a prescription for a life sustaining medication that I take on a daily basis. I couldn't get an appointment for my specialist. I tried for 3 weeks to get ahold of Dr. Banooni's office. No one got back to me to tell me that the prescription was denied. Then finally after 4 phone calls I talked to her personally. She was extremely rude, and unprofessional and said it wasn't her responsibility to prescribe it.

I LOVE Dr. Banooni. When I see her, I feel like I'm seeing my friend who happens to be my doctor. I've only been seeing her less than two years but it feels like she's known me since college. My husband also sees her as his primary and he loves her as well. She is smart, thorough, honest and real - I completely trust her and appreciate her no BS approach. Any time I've needed a referral or an appointment, it's handled right away and I never have to wait longer than ten minutes max to see her.

Have seen her when my regular doc at Bob Hope is unavailable. Never had a problem, she has been sympathetic, kind and caring. In fact, when I presented in the office with a problem that eventually required hospitalization she followed up with me on the phone and urged me to go to the E.R.

Dr. Bannoni was my primary care doctor, but after today I will switch doctors. She had a medical emergency and saw me after waiting over an hour. She was resentful and angry because she had to see me during her lunch hour. I commented that her behavior was inappropriate and she blew up and yelled at me that "she was seeing me - what more did I want?" She stormed out of the room. Her nurse and office manager witnessed this and they were appalled. I have formally complained to UCLA. Shocking!!

Couldn't get into my regular doctor at the Bob Hope Health Center. Saw Banooni. She was dismissive. When I explained myself and said I know my own body and she should listen to her patient, she said I should trust her because she's a doctor. I got what I needed. And I feel better. But won't see her again.
