Bad billing practices. Said she was in network blue cross select ppo but in fact is not. Forced me to pay full price even though she would not have gotten that much money from the insurance if in fact she was in network which she is not. Watch out. Triple check your insurance if you dare to go to her. Really weird location and tough to get to her office which is strange since you think it is just here in Pasadena.

I saw Dr Sharon Yegiaian for y back pain. My experience was very pleasant at her new location at 139 South Lobles Ave in Pasadena. She as very caring and knowledgeable and took the time to isten to my concern. I am feeling a lot better. The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. They go out of their way to accommodate you. I would recommend her highly if ou or dome one ou know needs a neurologist. Thanks

Stay away from this doctor!!! Arrogant, cold, unprofessional; but scariest of all-total disregard of the safety of her patients. Saw her for what turned out to be Lyme disease (diagnosed 6 months later). Handed me PRESCRIPTION pill in her office. Wrote 2 more - all were very potent neurological meds or meds to be given when treating for cancer or having surgery. NOTHING she did made sense. When questioned, she became angry. Med records were incorrect (copies), staff lost blood work. RUNNN!!
For patients who read this feedback please be aware that there are a lot of claims about "lyme disease" and unless otherwise proven by submitting proper positive tests for lyme disease or reviewing this patients medical history I urge readers caution about believing all the statements about this feedback. Lyme disease is very rare in this part of the country. Even if the diagnosis was incorrect the one thing that I have rarely been accused of is being cold or arrogant.

Dr. Yegianian is an excellent dr. who takes a great deal of time, and care with her patients. Most importantly she is extremely thorough and will make sure to rule out anything serious, if it all possible. I have been seeing her for 3 years, and I am thrilled she is my neurologist.
