Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

When people ask me if I have a neurologist, I tell them I do not have a neurologist, because I have THE neurologist. For movement disorders, this is the only neurologist to have in the Los Angeles area. She is wonderful, not just as a doctor, but as a person. She has helped me to have a quality of life that was unimaginable to me before I met her.

Dr. Petrossian agreed to treat my palatal myoclonus with injections. They do not state this on the website as the disorder is so rare but she can perform this injection at her Santa Monica office. For those who deal with this extremely rare disorder, this lady might save you from it and validate your suffering. She was kind, thorough and very emboldening. For the last year I’ve batted this disorder which nobody knows about. It has been horribly unbearable. But, the end of the line is near.

Dr Petrosian was quite professional, knowledgeable and personable. She made me feel comfortable and took time to answer all of my questions and concerns. She was very thorough and I never felt rushed like is the case with so many doctors these days. Her admin staff was quite friendly and helpful as well.

Dr. Petrossian is caring, kind, thorough and makes certain that I understand what is going on regarding my medical condition. I had brain surgery and was/is experiencing issues after the surgery. I did see another neurologist prior to seeing Dr. Petrossian but felt that I was not getting the thorough care that I needed. I am so grateful to Dr. Petrossian for trying to find out what is causing my issues. The office staff is courteous, very willing to help. She is a treasure.
