Dr Hijazin is a good Dr I have seen him for a long time because he's the only one who has control my seizures I wouldn't change it for another doctor and I also have that VNS therapy and that work for me to control my seizures also. I also live in Lancaster and I go all the way to Downey to see him I wouldn't change the doctors out here in Lancaster

I had to drive there to get a appointment only for them to tell me that I couldn't get one until the diagnosis was fixed I am a biller and I told them give me the appointment and I'll get it fixed with my doctor and they said no. Now I have it fixed and no answer to both numbers I heard the doctor is good all they need is a new staff that cares about his patients I'll be calling the health plan along with my IPA

These people never answer their phones. Customer Service is terrible.

I GAVE HIM PAPERWORK ON MY CASE. I TOLD HIM I HAD AN MRI . WHEN I WENT BACK TO SEE HIM AGAIN AFTER HE TESTED ME HE SUGGESTED TO HAVE AN MRI WHICH I HAD HAD PREVIOUSLY A COUPLE OF MONTHS BEFORE. I ASSUMED HE DID NOT BOTHER TO REVIEW MY FILE TO SEE THAT I HAD HAD AN MRI PREVIOUSLY. HE SAID YOUR PROBLEM IS WITH YOUR BACK, WHICH I ALREADY KNEW. HE OFFERED NO HELP FOR ME EXCEPT TO REFER ME TO PAIN MANAGEMENT. VERY SHORT APPT.
