Dr. Aijian has provided amazing personal care, going above and beyond my expectations of helping in early diagnosis and suggestions for ongoing care for a very serious health problem, referring excellent specialists to us. He goes the extra mile to make sure you're okay after your consultation and seems to genuinely care. Office staff is professional and quick to respond. Very satisfied with this doctor.

I AM NEW IN TOWN AND BECAME ILL WITH A COLD AND TERRIBLE COUGH. NO DOCTOR IN TOWN WOULD SEE ME, EVERYONE TOLD ME TO GO TO THE URGENT CARE. I NEEDED A NEW DOCTOR AND WHEN I CALLED DR. AIJIAN'S OFFICE THE NURSE GAVE ME AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE SAME DAY AFTER EXPLAINING MY SYMPTOMS. VERY NICE, CALM AND COMFORTABLE OFFICE WITH WONDERFUL STAFF AND VERY NICE ATTENTIVE DOCTOR. HE TOOK A LOT OF TIME WITH ME AND EXPLAINED EVERYTHING VERY WELL. THE NURSE EVEN CALLED ME THE NEXT DAY TO SEE HOW I WAS FEELING

Dr Aijian was referred to me from a longtime family friend. After calling and it took four weeks to schedule an appointment and once I got in to speak with the doctor he was very dismissive of the concerns I was having with my health so he suggested i get bloodwork. The office forgot two separate times to send the referral for blood work so I had to call the office for the third time and then they finally sent the referral. The office personal were very forgetful. They never sent my Rx!

I've never met a doctor who was so condescending and rude before. If I could give a negative star I would. I left his office in tears and will be taking this higher up to the board. Never seen such disrespect in my life. Will never come back.

Very aloof attitude. I had some lab work with really concerning results to which the doctor failed to contact me to discuss a plan. Office is terrible at sending referrals to the lab; I had to go 3 times to the lab (and call the office twice) until they finally sent the request. For the second time yesterday I stayed in line at the pharmacy to learn that they hadn't sent the prescription. Absolutely appalling follow-up from that part of a doctor.
