Brooklyn, NY |
The staff at Dr. Zahedi's office are very unprofessional! They overbook appointments and wait for you to get there, wait for hours then tell you, the Doctor cannot see you. No apologies, no sincerity, just attitude! Changing Doctors immediately because of his disgusting staff!
in Brooklyn, NY |
I had male pattern baldness for almost 1 year and had seen 5 other MD's including another endocrinologist. Dr. Zahedi looked at my blood work and in 10 seconds diagnosed my problem, ordered a medication and within 2 weeks my hair loss stopped. He was also kind, compassionate and professional. The only issue is the wait......it's long.
