Escondido, CA |
My first and only visit so far with Dr Arbabi was excellent. She was very pleasant. She had great bedside manner.
San Diego, CA |
Dr Arbabi was very friendly and helpful. She diagnosed my problem after asking several questions and looking at my physical symptoms. She printed out some patient information for me to take home and showed me her diagnosis in a text book since it was something I was unfamiliar with. She answered all of my questions about my diagnosis, treatment and possible outcomes. I'm glad to have found a nice, friendly doctor so close to home.
Highland, CA |
Went in to get a refill on bc. She said that I was borderline overweight due to the Bmi scale. I workout 5 days a week and see a personal trainer. My body fat percentage is 19%. She asked if I needed to see a nutritionist when all I wanted was bc. I eat fairly healthy but she then decided to tell me what she eats on a regular basis. I don't care. I now have a bill of almost 80 to just prescribe me a similar bc I was in previously.
San Diego, CA |
She treated me as an annoyance. Didn't listen to me and was argumentative and accusatory. No compassion and no concern. Waited 45 mins for nothing. She said she had a more serious patient she had to get back to implying she needed to hurry with me. Highly Do NOT recommend.
San Diego, CA |
I would never recommend Dr Arbabi. She has a horrible bedside manner and spends more time thinking up unrelated illnesses rather than anything you've just spoken to her about. For example, I came in for migraines and she spent the entire time acting incredulous that I only use my inhalor once every so often.
Very impersonal doctor, did not show any compassion or sympathy for my condition. Kept staring at her computer during the entire visit. She was not helpful at all and I need to see another doctor to figure out my medical problem. The worst experience I've ever had with a family doctor!

Never had such a terrible expierence with a Dr before!Dr Arbabi has beyond terrible bedside manners!The entire appoinment she kept her head down in her laptop and barely acknowleged me, I felt tossed aside after only 5 min in the room she told me that she had to go see her next patient after I waited 20min to see her and she never addressed my issue for the visit! She sat with her legs open and too low cut of a dress to be a MD and the language barrier was evident with her Never recommending her
