What People Say About Dr. Nassim Karimi, MD

Previously gave Dr Karimi a great review. I thought she was thorough but she covertly misdiagnosed me with narcotic bowel syndrome when my vast medical history should have completely precluded this diagnosis. She told me there was nothing she cold do for me. I ended up in the ER with critically low blood levels from internal bleeding and food fermenting in my gut because of bowel obstruction. I asked her to take the misdiagnosis off my chart. She said she would but didn't. Left me in horrid pain

Finding the right GI can be tough. I was finally able to get an appointment. She was very helpful. The only thing I dislike is that being able to communicate it the worst. First the receptionist is not helpful. And I don’t know how old their system is. They sent my medicine to the wrong pharmacy when I told them the right one. Also hearing back for my results took days. And was not helpful. I have been dealing with months of pain and no one seems to help. She says it one thing when it’s another.
