What People Say About Dr. Zaree Babakhanian, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Have been seeing Dr Babakhanian for about 1 1/2 years. Was skeptical at first as my insurance told me I had to see him and I didn't know anything about him. I was hesitant since I am a medical provider. I could not be more happy that I was sent to see him. He has left no stone unturned, has called me to check on me, has referred me to other specialists (including USC) to get the right answers and treatments. The takeaway for me is that he really knows what he's doing and he cares even more.

Great doctor! Very thoughtful and listens to your concerns without interrupting. He took proper care to address my needs as a patient with a rare disease, such as doing my endoscopy in hospital and listened to my concerns about gi issues associated with my illness. Feels like a true doctor-patient partnership. He offers great care and is also just a delightful guy!

Dr. Z is one of my favorite doctors, if not the favorite. He is absolutely professional at what he is trained to do but he is also a lovely person, just terrific to have a conversation with. I always recommend him when I find myself inside one of those "ailments" discussions and the "ailments" drift into intestinal issues.

Dr. B is very kind and patient. Seems to really care about his patients issues. Makes you feel comfortable. Easy to talk too. The only reason I rated a 2 star in the urgent appt. scheduling is because he is so busy, you still have to wait a while before you can see him.

I have been suffering with my condition for over 10 years . Other doctors have tried or were indifferent to me. Dr Babakhanian has been understanding and has helped me so much. I am about 95% better and he is still there for me which has been great. I am almost living a normal life now so THANK YOU Dr Babakhanian

Dr. Babakhanian is extremely understanding and provides exceptional patient care. Had my 1st colonoscopy procedure with no pain/bloating, just alittle dazed by the sedation. I was back to normal within an hour. Got my results 4 days later and prescrptions were emailed to my requested pharmacy. Prep care supplies and the pictionary instructions were so easy to follow. One can tell he spent alot of careful and thoughtful planning in putting these together. He is highly skilled! Pick him! Jane K.
