As always, Dr Ajamian took time to listen to me and my concerns. He gave me clear and easy instructions on how to care for my sore throat. And as promised, his office nurse Kerri called me half an hour laterwith results of the strep test and further instructions. I love this doctor and his staff, they are always caring, compassionate and friendly.

Great first time visit. Caring staff, friendly, and professional. Doctor was very genuine and wasn't quick to finish and get to the next patient. Took the time to analyze the situation and make suggestions rather than push prescriptions blindly.

Aphrodite was the person at the window when I arrived for my appointment. She was unwelcoming and quite argumentative, because I made my appointment through Zocdoc. She said that I should’ve called the office instead, but it’s closed on Sundayevenings. Apparently she didn’t get my information from Zocdoc, became annoyed, and had me reiterate it to her. She also got irritated when I didn’t immediately recall the name of the last doctor I saw at Valley Medical Group. After taking my medical information she told me to sign in and provided no help on how to use the sign-in board. At that point I wanted to leave, but I was not feeling well and needed to see a doctor. The young girl who brought me into the examining room was quite nice and very kind. She even helped me with the sign-in board; she knew that I was not feeling well. The nurse and doctor were great. I was very pleased with the medical care from Dr. Ajemian. He was patient, thorough, and clear with explanations. He also answered all of my questions. I would recommend Valley Medical Group in spite of Aphrodite’s rude treatment.

Dr. Ajemian is great! He is very easy to talk to and listens to you about your concerns. I had to wait a long time to see him this visit but there was a medical emergency and an ambulance was neededso I understand the circumstances. He also does not rush thru the exam - like other doctors often do.

Dr. Ajemian is someone, I find, that I can speak to easily with openess and no judgements from him. He is patient and takes his time with you, I never feel rushed. He has this calmness about him that seems towash away any anxiety you may be feeling and deals with the problems at hand. He is open to conversations about medications and is will to work with you. He recommend Dr. Ajemian.

The office is run like a factory now. These larger medical practices are the byproduct of our broken medical system. I was greeted by a receptionist that was obviously not happy to be there. Then I was brought into the backrelatively quickly but I sat in the office for over an hour, waiting for the doc. I was there for a simple physical. He was the only doc working on a Saturday in January! Hello, how does that make any sense? I'll be looking for a new practice.

I arrived 10 minutes before my appointment and informed the front desk that I was in hurry and needed to get back to the office. They said they could not control timings. I waited for about 25 minutes before I wascalled into the examination room. I told the nurse again that I was in a hurry but again she said there is nothing she can do. The doctor came pretty much right away but I still have to schedule follow up appointment because we couldn't get through everything. I think doctors offices should be more accommodating, especially with lunch time appointments and people that need to get back to work.
