    I have been a patient of Dr. Akhavan's for 2 yrs now and I have had a great experience. It took me over 2 years to find a new pain specialist when my pain doctor retired. years. Dr. Akhavan listens to my complaints of continuing pain, I have had an injection that temporarily helped my foot, and the Dr. and Silva have battled Blue Shield Ca. He is board certified, takes my calls, Silva takes my calls, appts have been easy. Follow the rules and no problem. No one wanted me as a patient, he did

    So disappointed with this office. They made me wait 7 weeks for an appointment (after being informed I'd just moved to the area and was in extreme pain & had been referred by my primary care doctor). They said to call back twice a week "in case there was a cancellation." Then, after waiting six weeks for my appointment, they told me that the procedure wouldn't be scheduled for another five weeks. Horrible customer service and no concern for their patients or the pain they're in. Shame on you!

    While the doctor is a kind, caring, and professional person the front desk staff are the most unprofessional, incompetent, uncaring people you can find in town. Every time I made an appointment the girls NEVER recorded the appointment and when it was time to be seen by the doctor, guess what? I did not have an appointment. I am amazed by their competency of these girls or perhaps how much they enjoy making patient's live more difficult and more painful. Such a shame!!!!!!
