What People Say About Dr. Maxim Moradian, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

YOU CAN THROW A DART AND DO BETTER THAN THIS GUY. HE WAS UNFORTHCOMING WHEN IASKED FOR DETAILS ABOUT INJECTION THERAPY. THEN HE REFUSED TO TREAT ME BECAUSE, AS HE SAID, "YOU'VE EXPRESSED DOUBTS." ALSO, IT TOOK ME 10 DAYS AND FIVE CALLS TO THE OFFICE TO GET A RX REFILL. THEY FORCE YOU TO USE THE SUPPLIER THEY HAVE SOME KIND OF RELATIONSHIP FOR RX WITH (SO I CAN'T GET MEDICATION FROM MY PHARMACY OF CHOICE, WALGREENS). I DON'T THINK THIS IS LEGAL. HE'S JUST A JERK. GO ELSEWHERE.

I was a patient for several months. In my experience I have found him to be impatent and short tempered. He gets rattled very easily over small things. I don't know if this is attributable to his age (he seems young and inexperienced) or to a busy schedule. But he really does need to learn how to keep his temper in check and to listen to people better. Particularly people who have waited 45 minutes beyond their appointment time to see him. He does have a nice staff and a large office.

I flew across America to see Dr. Moradian. He is an excellent injecting physician and I had immediate relief after the injection. I would highly highly recommend him if you need interventional treatment. Hands-down has one of the top 1% doctors out there. Regarding previous comments of abdominal muscles he was more than likely explaining that having a strong core and strong abs are extremely important and having a strong back. If your core goes out your back might go out also.

I am quite aghast at some of the comments here. Perhaps these patients did not follow up with treatment by him. I went to see him initially as a translator for a friend of mine who only spoke Chinese. I found this doctor to be very straightforward and wonder how he can be so forthcoming with respect to treatment and yet be the way some say. I had been in the operating room (gowned up) six times. He will take a lot of time with each patient. If dissatisfied, he will start all over.

This "doctor" is a pompous idiot. I didn't feel comfortable with the way he kept bragging about himself, rather than listening to my concerns or questions. Not impressed.

Did not listen to my concerns. Seemed interested in showing himself off. Inappropriately showed me his exercise regime, including asking my husband ( I asked him to be at my appt.) to hit him in his abs to show his tight muscles. Seemed young, and not knowledgeable, about people or my physical issues. I was negative @ him,b/c I was operated on by a Risser surgeon, & treated by his Risser predecessor,both impressed me with their expertise. Predecessor, was excellent so I had a comparison

I found Dr Moradian to be arrogant, glib and condescending. He would do well to take a refresher course in how to listen to his patients, and another in how to explain his conclusions and prescriptions. I gave only two stars for "ease of scheduling" because of the long wait for an appointment -- the office staff and X-ray technician were all very helpful and pleasant.

As a physical therapist and patient of Dr Moradian's, I highly recommend him. My only regret is that I didn't know about him when I first injured myself two years ago. Dr Moradian has been a godsend. He is very thorough, attentive, never rushed and very patient with my many questions/concerns. I'm so grateful to have found a doctor who cares about my recovery and is helping me get back on my feet again.
