Avoid if looking for LGBTQ+ specific support. Doctor is very forgetful and can come off being rude and obnoxious. However, I believe this is a sign of his upbringing environment. If you are looking for someone to be accepting/comforting this is not the place to go. He likes to be in control and is willing to let patients go if they disagree or push back in any way (even if it is years of working together). His team, however, are wonderful and caring. Especially Jenece who is a Therapist that works out of his office. This practice is fairly affordable and there are options to have health insurance cover some of the costs. It's up to you to weigh out the pros and cons. I hope others experiences are better than mine.

Dr. Zahedi is the reason I am finally feeling "normal". He is very good at figuring out what you need. He is not too good with needy type people

Dr. Z truly cares about his patients. I have been seeing him for 5 or so years. I will never see another psychiatrist again. He is honest, caring and has the BEST staff. What I like about seeing Dr. Z is that he will tell me his honest unbiased opinion. Other psychiatrists I’ve seen just tell you what you want to hear. Take his advice he knows what he’s talking about. I couldn’t thank him enough. On another note Jenece is also wonderful. She is a saving grace.

Been a patient of Dr. Z for about a year and he has been great. He’s very helpful and honest, and has made a world of difference for me. I fully trust his advice on medication and other things. He truly has his patients health and well-being at the forefront of his mind.

I can't say enough about Dr. Zahedi. I feel like I'm talking to one of my buddies when I talk to him. You know, the buddy that tells you exactly how it is and doesn't pull any punches. It's refreshing to see a Doc that doesn't blame all your problems on something other than where the blame belongs. As far as I'm concerned, he's spot on!!!

Love Dr. Z and his staff. He’s very competent, great at finding a good balance of listening and engaging during sessions. He also seems genuinely invested in his patients’ overall health and happiness. He’s flexible with appointment times/settings and payment options. Definitely recommend.

The first visit to Dr. Zahedi I left mad angry and cancelled my next appointment. Why you ask I give him 4 stars. Well as I looked for help elsewhere I realized that what I needed was exactly what he had given me..... the honest truth. He is a great doctor and if you cannot handle the truth bluntly then well go find someone else. If you WANT help and the honest opinion and help then I highly recommend him. He's down to earth and literally turned my life around for the first time I have hope

Dr. Zahedi has always shown a very caring attitude. His main concern is always the wellbeing of his patients. Over the years I have made met several psychiatrists, who have treated family members. As far as I'am concern Dr. Zahedi is in the upper ranks of his profession. I can't say enough about him, except that I'am so thankful our family has found him and is now receiving excellent care!

Dr. Z has helped my loved one come off of a variety of meds that had been prescribed by her previous physician. They had totally changed her personality and she was clearly over medicated yet still extremely anxious all of the time. Dr. Z was very patient and careful to slowly wean her down while finding the proper medication. She is no longer anxious and her personality has returned. Dr. Z stays in touch with our family between appointments & is reachable by email or phone after hours

I found Dr. Zahedi to be non-judgmental and kind. He was quite knowledgeable about medications, and allowed me to be a partner in the decision making process. He educated me about diagnosis and my prognosis; I wasn't surprised, since he is a professor at two Universities.

I am not saying any of this to be vengeful or rude, but to make sure no one has the bad experience i had. Dr. Zahedi works as a prison psychologist, and it should stay that way. Theres a way to be blunt and truthful without being hurtful. Going into that office, I was hopeful and excited. Leaving, i was in tears from rage and hopelessness. Telling a mentally ill individual that they're not going to get better, even if its true, is flat out insensitive. Theres just nicer ways to say things.
