Patient Comments (3)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Deplorable, insensitive, worst doctor I have ever come across. Beware and stay away. No bedside manner and completely rude. She loves her personal problems into her work.no knowledge or expertise.
in Pasadena, CA |
She typed whole time of our appointment uninterestecd in me as a person. Staff treats patients as if they are bothering them. Many neurologists in Pasadena are incompetent, Minazad is the best of the rather poor options.
in Duarte, CA |
My 1st appt. with Dr. Minazad went well. The 2nd visit, I had to wait over 1 hour to see her. When she came into the room she was very short, and focused on an area that is not the major one I am being seen for. She asked no questions about the physical therapy treatment she had sent me to. She spent less than 3 minutes with me and told me to follow up with her new nurse practitioner in 6 months for who knows what? She is now a MMM which is maybe why she is less focused on what she should be.
