        Warm caring physician who really listens to you. I highly recommend her.
        in Seaside, CA |
        Dr. Behnam has been a wonderful doctor for husband and myself for the last 6 years, and as my children leave their pediatricians, she will be their doctor as well. She has a very kind nature and listens very well. Never rushes you, and always takes your opinions and worries with care. I recommend her to all of our friends and family.

        Best primary care physician I've had in 20 years. She remembers everything I tell her, and brings it up in subsequent visits, no matter how much time has elapsed! I've never had a doctor with that kind of ability to really know her patients. I've had doctors from one visit to the next act like they have no idea who I am, so to have one that remembers everything, even the small, trivial stuff is amazing. I highly recommend her.

        She was kind, compassionate, and took her time to listen to my concerns. he was knowledgeable and explained everything clearly. She answered all my questions. I highly recommend her.

        I have been seeing Dr. Behnam for a few years now I have always felt uncomfortable in hospital/doctors offices. But Dr. Behnam is very patient with me always give me multiple recommendations whenever a health concern in an issue.
        in Monterey, CA |
        A co-worker recommended Dr. Behnam. I contacted her office & was told that she would review my info to see if she wanted to take me on as a patient. Huh? I?m a person-a person who needed a physician. She is a physician who is taking new patients. I was left a short, curt message saying the Dr. said no. Really? I felt horrible. So insulting! I've never been rejected like that by someone who swore to do no harm. My feelings were hurt! Harm! Since when do Dr.?s evaluate a person for treatability?
        Unfortunately the front office staff is disorganized, and I had a negative experience my first visit. Please be aware, this office does not see children, even though it's a family practice and they will let you make an appt for your child. Also know that their policy is to do an intake visit first, and will not do an physical exam without making a second appointment ($$$). My experience with Dr. Behnam herself was pleasant, though she wasn't very knowledgeable re: my specific conditions.
