Avoid at all costs!!! Terrible doctor who imposes conservative beliefs on patients!..., May 21, 2013
I had slim pickings with my new HMO so I chose Dr. Galiano because he was downtown near my office. I was always in/out in 30 minutes which was great BUT he would always make snide comments to me. He asked "Why would you need a blood test for STDs? Are you promiscuous?" All I wanted was to get a checkup and figured I could test for STDs since they were already taking my blood. I didn't need a judgement. Recently I went in to get a blood test to see if I was pregnant. This was an unplanned pregnancy so it was really scary. He proceeded to lecture me by saying "The body is made for reproducing and you should not be having sex if you do not want to reproduce." I have never been more offended in my life! He also refused a blood test because he said it would be a waste of money and I needed to wait longer than 2.5 weeks. 2.5 weeks or not I was scared and needed medical guidance in which I received judgement and lectures. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
Dr. Jodi Berg Is An Amazing Integrative Naturopath..., May 18, 2013
Dr Jodi Berg is a doctor who really listens. In the 8 years that I have been her patient, my health has improved dramatically. Dr. Berg's integrative approach that includes acupuncture, naturopathy, Chinese herbs, homeopathics, massage and spiritual counseling treats the whole person. I heartily recommend Dr. Berg's Integrative Family Health center.
Won't go back, would not recommend, don't go to her..., Apr 25, 2013
Office was dirty. Entrance to office difficult to find. Poor review of medical history and poor physical exam. Difficulty in getting prescription refill. Doctor took 3 phone calls and left the exam room twice during visit.
Would not recommend.
Dishonest billing and a bad bed-side manner. Not recommended...., Apr 22, 2013
I suggest staying away from Reseda Family Medical Clinic run by Dr. Syrus Feridouni. I've never had such a horrifying experience with a doctor or clinic.
1. They bill $390 for just the doctor's visit not including any treatment. In comparison, West Oaks Urgent Care in Winnetka charges about $65.
2. They overbill for service even if you they say they take your insurance. My insurance refused to pay portions of the bill as they exceeded their contractual agreement.
3. Dr. Feridouni has a cruel bed side manner. When cleaning a wound on my daughter's palm which was extremely painful, he asked her if it hurt and when she said it did, he told her "no it doesn't".
4. I was incorrectly and over-billed for services received and when I attempted to resolve the matter by explaining to Dr. Feridouni (in a calm and polite manner) why the billing was incorrect, he started yelling at me, said if I didn't pay he would send me to collections and hung up the phone
Money hungry. Only in it for the Pharmecuetical kick-backs..., Feb 15, 2013
Poor monitoring of patients. Doctor Hemang Shah is simply a pill peddler with no concern of a patients well being. When patient has trouble due to medication the Doctor simply won't see them anymore. No concern of dangerous and debilitating after effects of drugs. Office staff will lie to protect him. AVOID THIS DOCTOR and his staff AT ALL COST !
