What People Say About Dr. Nasrin Arbabi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
If I could rate her a zero I would. Dr. Arababi is incompetent. I came in for a UTI which I’ve had before and she scolded me for taking Azo as this could interfere with results. As if that wasn’t enough she was an hour late to see me and ran multiple unnecessary tests that she didn’t inform me of. I was billed for testing I didn’t consent to nor informed of. She’s has zero people skills and if I had seen the previous 1 start reviews I wouldn’t have gone to her.

Dr. Arbabi was friendly and thorough in her discussion with me about my health concerns. She took extra time to address issues that I needed more information on. I would recommend this doctor.

I am 21 years old and have a 7 month old. I had to go in for a check up so I could get a breastpump from my insurance. She was really rude and was saying I am a kid having kids and was trying to force birth control on me even though I had told her several times I have been on multiple birth controls and they have all made me depressed and have made me gain a lot of weight she wouldn't listen to a thing I said.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I found some of her questions to be unnecessary and completely irrelevant to the patient's concerns. She also did not show care to the patient's purpose of the visit and went off topic. She prescribed unnecessary medications and tried to find problems with my health during a regular well check physical addressing issues that were not a concern at the visit. I later got billed for her discussion of these issues as a seperate fee from my physical.

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.

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.

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.

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
