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
Dr Wilson Cook is Outstanding and I would recommend him to anyone..., Feb 26, 2013
Dr Wilson Cook is probably the best doctor I have ever had. He is intelligent, soft-spoken, considers your input seriously, no matter how amateur and 'hot off the internet' it may be. My health has improved much under his care.
His staff is very professional, but the phone messaging system is annoying, and the facilities are old, with visible mold in some places along the ceiling, which is typical for old buildings.
But his staff is still great, and Dr Cook himself is the best general physician I have ever had.
Peddles quack medicine and couldn't care less about a patient's time..., Jan 29, 2013
Doctor Masri leaves one wondering what planet he’s from regarding some of the questionable voodoo science he advocates and the dismissive attitude he takes to other specialists. He’s very big on advocating the use of a highly expensive allergy test that insurance companies won’t cover (that should clue you up) and which is largely discredited by allergy specialists and a medical community that sees it as outdated science that renders far too many false positives and verges on the kind of quackery one would normally associate with the more outrageous claims of some in the alternative medicine community.
Dr. Masri also took it upon himself to render ‘expert’ opinion on a bowel condition I’ve had for some years and which he claimed was all down to allergies and diet, thus segueing into his advocacy for the testing process mentioned above. The views expressed ran contrary to every opinion I’ve been given by a number of gastroenterologists through the years regarding my condition and how I should treat it, but what was even more disturbing was the manner in which he tried convincing me to cancel my planned appointment for the periodic colonoscopy my condition requires to check for inflammation and any signs of cancer. All of this of course from a medical practitioner I’d made an appointment to see regarding a mole on my forehead that had given me cause for concern!
To rub salt into the wound, a follow-up appointment to garner the results of a series of blood tests that were taken on my first visit showed that the clinic has as little respect for the time of its patients as it has for their intelligence when peddling garbage science. My appointment was for a little past 9 in the morning so I theoretically must have been one of the first patients for the day, yet 70 minutes later I had yet to see Dr. Masri, with no apology or explanation from the disinterested staff. What is it about doctors that they have so little respect for your own time, but wil
Dr. Parma is knowledgable, attentive, and kind. You can feel confident to put your eyes in this ext..., Jan 19, 2013
You can feel confident to put your trust in this extraordinary doctor's capable hands. He is a fantastic communicator, and he will take the time to help you understand your condition. He is not only a wonderful doctor, but also a wonderful human being. He surrounds himself with very conscientious, patient, and professional staff members. I give this doctor and his office the highest of accolades.
Dr Conlin practices billing fraud for services not rendered..., Dec 21, 2012
Went to Dr Conlin for a physical only and I was billed for physical and a separate office visit. All he did was ask me about pre-existing conditions (from form I had to fill out when I arrived) and then he starts billing me as if he is treating me for those conditions, even though I told him I am seeing another specialist for those pre-existing conditions. This is billing fraud. Dr Conlin also tried to prescribe cholesterol medication even though my cholesterol levels were very good, and he became extremely rude when I questioned the need for that.
