I had a very bad experience with Dr. Famini. I am Diabetic type 2 and I saw him twice. His bed side manners are zero. My blood sugar goes really high and can change within half an hour and go really low and that makes me nervous. I am watching my diet and eat very healthy. He gave me a medication that I hadn’t tried before and I started taking it in the morning . I started to get dizzy specially at night when I tried to sleep and pounding heartbeat and my blood sugar was still going high and low. So after 10 days one night, I was nauseous and dizzy and shaken with low blood sugar so I called the answering service and Dr. famini called me at 8:45 and he was shouting so loud I could not hear what he says. He said I should never call him after 5:00 which is the office hours. And Said I have anxiety issue ! Yes when my blood sugar go high to 267 and within 20 min goes to 88 yes I do get anxiety. I will never ever go back to him and I do not recommend him! You can not calling him after 5:00

Wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise and cut me off at any opportunity during my appointment. Had disparaging things to say about trans persons upon discovering my trans status, brushed off my corrections to his misinformation by saying "I'm not an expert." Then perhaps don't say anything?

I can not express how much I appreciate Dr Famini's help with my son's complex thyroid cancer condition. He is not only extremely thorough and knowledgeable; but also has the patience and kindness of a saint, dealing with an over worrying mom (me). His staff is also amazing. I've dealt with many doctors and doctor's offices in my 60+ years, and this doctor and office (both Encino and Westwood), are among the best.... not only topnotch professionally, but very accessible and caring.

I recommend Dr. Famini in a heart bit. Amazing person first of all. He really cares, gets to the bottom of the whatever health issues you might have. Took his time in asking details about my health, my family's health, etc. Great Doctor!!!

Dr. Famini was very good! I was late to my first appt and he saw me anyhow even with his busy schedule. He was very professional, good bed side manners, was very thorough and explained everything to me. He made me feel at ease about my condition and followed up with me after my appointment. I would highly recommend him to someone who needs an endocrinologist.
