Dr Khorsandi is super thorough and caring. He asks questions most tries to get to the bottom of your problem. He follows up with you even in the evening when he's off work, and doesn't just leave you a cryptic voicemailand ask for you to call back, say btw 4:30 and 5pm or something. His staff is friendly and welcoming. I'm deadly afraid of needles, and when I last needed blood work, his male nurse (so sorry I forgot your name) made sure to distract me while drawing blood and was super gentle: no veins popped (and yes, that happens to me a lot). Thanks for your great care, guys!

Visisted doctor Khorsandi for a yearly physical. After checking in I had asked to use the restroom. Since it was my physical, I needed to give a sample. This is where we hit a snag. The front desk assistant asked meto go down the hall to one bathroom, get a cup, and walk back across the office to the other bathroom as the first one did not work. This was uncomfortable as there was not a place to put the cup when I was finished in the second bathroom leaving me in a very awkward situation. The bathroom also did not have any paper towels to dry my hands. The appointment with Dr. Khorsandi was great, but its these little details and that extra step that was lacking from the staff to make my visit great.

Wow this was awful. They say they take insurance, but want to bill way more than a typical specialist office visit just for a typhoid vaccination and prescription for antimalarials. I showed them my benefits showing that my insurance does covertyphoid, and they still insisted it was not covered and just outright refused to send it. They charge way more than what the pharmacy charges for typhoid, and won't even bill my insurance?! Utter waste of time and completely rude secretary. Save your time and money and go to CVS.

Their front office staff is terrible and the doctor is just as bad. I recently had moved here to LA and needed a GP - this place was close to my office, so I gave it a shot. I have asthmaand the Dr. suggested I start using steroids. I didn't want to use steroids and so I kept using my inhaler as I have been doing my entire life. The office filled out a prescription for 4 months (4 inhalers). The initial visit to the office was expensive and each refill is expensive. Once my 4 inhalers ran out, I tried to have my pharmacy contact the doctor for another refill but they refused to refill my asthma prescription and said I needed to come in and see the doctor again and drop some more money on a co-pay. I told them that I had been laid off a month ago and that I couldn't afford a visit, nor did I think it was needed as no doctor I've ever been to has had an issue refilling my asthma medication. But this place refused to do it. Go on Yelp and read his other reviews. As many 1-2 star ratings as he has 4-5 star.

The level of unprofessionalism at this doctors office is beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. I plan on writing to the medical board in hopes of having this office closed and saving other people from being treated like customers instead ofpatients. I called 5+ times for results to my blood test and they forgot to request the panels and my specimen expired. AVOID THIS DOCTOR AT ALL COSTS.

I can say without a doubt that this is one of the most knowleadgable doctors I've seen and I can't be more happy with my visit. Someone who actually is experienced and takes the time to really listen and comprehend yourmedical history and then order the right tests. I went to three other doctors looking for a primary care physician and they all had side practices or were pushing some other procedure or seemed rushed. I live in Newport Beach and will definitely continue to make the drive up North to see him. They even had electronic forms. Great experience!

Not confidential, heard other patients and my own information shouted across the office. Rushed visit. For any problems I wanted to address he referred me to a specialist, then tried to sell me on other treatments - felt like he wasin it for a kickback. His specialist seems to be last minute checkups for greencards/travel abroad. Would not recommend for anything else.

Dr.Khorsandi is honestly a complete sweetheart. I am so glad that I started seeing him and I feel confident in his expertise. His bedside manner is excellent. All of the staff are very sweet as well and their bedside manner isalso great. This is a lot from me because im chronically ill with a heart problem & have been in and out of doctors for over 7 years: it is rare that you find a doctor that really listens to you, doesn't judge you, and cares about your health. I'm really glad I found Dr.Khorsandi!

I won't be returning to Dr. Amin's office. I went into the office, where I described full congestion and coughing and generally not feeling well, which had been on going for 5 days at that point. Therefore, showing I had alreadycontracted the sickness days before. They suggested I come back after feeling this way for 10 days for further diagnosis. Because I wasn't satisfied with this answer, they gave me a "3-Day Treatment", similar to that of a Z-Pack. Guess what? It is now almost a week later and I'm still congested and coughing. I won't be returning to pay another co-pay fee for the visit or antibiotics and paying for my time off of work. They didn't even take the time to test me for bronchitis or a bacterial infection. After some research, I later found it was because they don't get their money back when your insurance covers such things. Unacceptable. Don't waste your time and health.

The Doctor was quite helpful in answering all of my questions, conducting a physical, and offering me vaccination options. However, his front office staff was not knowledgeable and charged me for both physical and vaccinations (when it wasclear that insurance covered both). After 2 months I contacted my insurance and the front office staff via conference call to attempt to resolve the issue. The front office staff at Dr. Khorsandi's office did not want to listen to my issue, wrote me off as being incorrect, told the healthcare representative this is on them and that my insurance doesn't cover any of this, and then hung up on us saying we need to figure it out on our own. The front office staff was not willing to resubmit the claims as per insurance's suggestion. I will definitely not be returning back to this office, entirely because the front office staff was incompetent, rude, and not refunding me.

I personally didn't feel very comfortable around this doctor. After reading some of the other reviews on here, I cant help but agree. The fees for a simple consultation are overpriced. I don't feel like I've gotten much help or assurance.

Highly unprofessional team. The staff is rude and inattentive. The office routinely overcharges and under-delivers - I saw Dr. Khorsandi for less than two minutes but ended up being charged an exorbitant amount for the visit. The doctor simplydoes not care about educating patients, listening to their needs and looking out for their best interests. Instead, the whole office is just focused on maximizing what they can bill you and your insurance company. I would recommend avoiding this practice.
