in Des Moines, IA
No empathy for my daughter who is mentally disabled. Gave us 5 minutes to get her into his exam room. Then after 2 minutes, decided he would not see her. Very disappointed in his lack of compassion and understanding.

I have been in the care of Dr. Babikian for over 20 years for epilepsy. He has listened, explained and diagnosed to my highest levels of expectation!

I have gone to Dr. Babikian for several years, and have been very pleased. He never seems rushed, and always listens to me. I would highly recommend him.

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.
