Patient Comments (4)
Very condenscending. I went in to urgently obtain birth control and was made insecure at being sexually active at 21. I wasn't able to go to another doctor because she told me last minute that I had to come in to renew it. She made me do an annual exam with her in order to renew my birth control without giving me proper reasoning as she prescribes the pill before even seeing the test results. Will not be coming back to her in the future.

Dr. Amersi is awesome! She makes you feel comfortable and explains everything thats going on. Office is super clean and the staff were great too.

Her office is the best, the staff is the friendliest, and Dr. Amersi is one of the smartest, most genuine doctors you could ever ask for.
in Los Angeles, CA |
The bottom line is you have to trust with your doctor and feel they are looking out for your best interests. I didn't find this with Dr. Amersi and discovered her bedside manner to be very dissatisfactory. My appointments were rushed and any questions and concerns I had were never fully explained. Her lack of communication involved zero follow ups on any previous medical issues I was having to my discovery (by me asking many questions) of her dropping the hospital I had registered to deliver at.
