in Lewisville, TX |
Dr. Lakhian was a fine doctor and her office has some great diabetes educators. My experience with the office staff at Endocrine Associates has been terrible. I was not told that they no longer carry my insurance until two office visits later and was given a $500+ bill. Every person I talked to in the office was rude and was quick to pass me to another employee or answering machine (Even before I owed them money). I would NOT recommend this office to anyone. Worst office staff I have ever met.

I had a very bad experience with this dr. She has horrible bedside manners . I've been through several hardships ( losing both my parents and my only daughter to cancer ) making the move down here from South Texas was not easy either . She made my visit even more miserable . There are plenty of Drs out there that take pride in what they do and don't make you feel as i if they are the one and only available in their expertise . I sure appreciate all my Drs past and present , sadly not this one

She guided me through hyper and hypo thyroidism, during 2 separate pregnancies, including twins. She's always willing to listen, and treats you as if she has all the time in the world.
Ft Worth, TX |
After radioactive iodine treatment Dr. Lakhian did not catch my thyroid when it was back within normal range I have now spent 2 years unsuccessfully trying to bring it back up to normal range and was discharged from her office without any notice at all. I was a cash patient forced to buy a $350 medication I couldn't even take because they overlooked my liver problems that they diagnosed in the first place. They destroyed my health then refused to see me as a patient. Worst experience of my life.
Plano, TX |
Dr. Lakhian and her stuff are very friendly and helpful, they had always made me feel being taking care of. I trust them very much. The only negative thing I had sometimes experienced was the wait could be a bit long.
Dallas, TX |
Dr Lakhian is the most caring and thorough endocrinologist in Dallas. I could not be happier with her.
Plano, TX |
Personable, knowledgeable and takes the time to listen.
Allen, TX |
Dr. Lakhian is very knowledgeable and the office environment is nice. Wait time is unacceptable. My wait was always 30 minutes for the first one in the morning. My husband usually waited over an hour for an afternoon appointment, and had to leave once without being seen because he had to get back to work. They still charged us for our co-pay & I had to call them to request it be refunded. When i mentioned my husband's wait time to Dr Lakhian, she said that's good, wait is usually 2 hours!

Leander, TX |
I really like and trust Dr. Lakhian. I have found it a challenge to get a person to talk with by phone.
in Plano, TX |
Dr. Lakhian is highly knowledgeable in her field. I have been a patient of hers since she came to our area. I trust her completely. She has a very personable demeanor.
in Plano, TX |
Have been seeing Dr Lakhian for several years. Would certainly highly recommend her to any one I know. Only have a once a year appointment and always enjoy visiting with her. She recommended an excellent surgeon when I needed thyroid surgery. Have never needed an urgent appointment. Have recommended her to friends.
Dallas, TX |
I saw Dr. Lakhian for several years, during which I had to wait 30 minutes to an hour each time. Additionally, the doctor finally dismissed me because I complained about being rescheduled days before an appointment I had scheduled months in advance. Finally, the office refused to renew a prescription, but continues to call me to schedule appointments despite my having asked them not to! Getting through to anyone at the office is a chore due to their answering system.
