      I had an appt scheduled today at 8:15am in the Irvine office, but staff in Irvine didn't know where Dr. Mahdad was or which office he was in today. They told me I was wasting their time and they shoved a photocopy of his biz card at me and told me to call. I called and recording said they are closed. No biz hours are listed on the ans machine. Called and finally found him in HB. Woman on phone told me Irvine isn't really their office staff. What? Insurance Co thinks it is. Something fishy?

      Office staff extremely inefficient regarding insurance claims. Also questionable practices by Dr Mahdad as my experience with him getting Botox for migraine relief was vastly different from another neurologist that made me question whether he even gave me Botox. The standard protocol for migraine use was NOT followed by Dr. Mahdad after reviewing the standard process not only with the next neurologist but also my primary care. If I could provide it, I would sue.

      I was referred by my primary Dr., and read these reviews before going in. I had an early morning appt at the Huntington Beach office. There were two women in the receptionist area, both very nice and friendly, I spoke to them both about info packets for first visits. I got right in and did not have to wait for a room or the Dr. Dr. Mahdad was excellent at listening and explaining. I brought in a list of symptoms and questions, he went through the whole page with me.

      Connie Dominguez is by far the rudest and laziest receptionist I have ever encountered. The office staff is equally useless and lazy. Too much rudeness to even attempt to make an appointment.
