Long Beach, CA |
This is a review about scheduling an appointment. I called the office in the morning on a Friday and was transferred to the VM of the new patient coordinator. I left a message - no response. A couple hours went by, same deal. I called at the end of the day and someone tracked down the new patient coordinator for me. She hadn't listened to my message, said she would need some paperwork from my doctor, and promised to call back ASAP or no later than Monday morning. Neither happened.

Great oncologist. If you need an oncologist, Dr. Farjami should be you first choice. Caring, extremely well qualified and involved with cutting edge research. I am alive today as a result of his skills.

I have been a patient of Dr. Farjami for over three years. I would give him 10 stars if possible! He is warm, caring, kind, a good listener and is always well-informed of my current health status after tests and scans. All of the employees in his office speak very highly of him and I rarely see anyone new, because they apparently like their workplace and co-workers. I have Stage IV breast cancer and Dr. Farjami always speaks with optimism and hope for my future treatment.
He has been my oncologist for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma since 2013. He has an excellent bedside manner and encouraged me to seek out 2nd and 3rd opinions. The staff is professional, highly skilled and very caring. The only concern I have is that they seem to be understaffed the last year or so. Maybe because his practice and medical group, Pacific Shores Medical Group, is so well-respected they've had an increase in new patients.
