Des Moines, Iowa |
Run! He is ego centered Seems to think so highly of himself there is hardly any room for patients questions. Ive met a lot of doctors but none with more of a God complex. It was emotionally disturbing visit.

Was not interested in my symptoms at all. Made me a three month followup and his office refuses to se me earlier when my symptoms are not getting better. His nurse resonds after 4-5 days and simply states I will make a note of that. Worst care I have ever seen.

I have epilepsy and during the 4 years that I saw Dr. Babikian I was far from happy with my treatments. He refused to change my medications despite me having no control over my seizures while taking them. I always felt rushed through my appointments and that I wasn't being heard. As soon as I switched doctors and medication my seizures are completely in conttrol.

I wouldn't let you insurance change with him. Getting in touch with him is impossible if your prescription of topamax is about to run out.
