Qualifications and Experience
WE LISTEN, WE UNDERSTAND, WE ASSIST PSYCHIATRY AND ADDICTION MEDICINE Irvine Behavioral Medical Group was founded in 1989 in the city of Irvine. Since that time several highly skilled and well-known psychiatrist, psychologist, therapists and counselors have been associated with it. Arde Anoshivani, M.D. has been practicing in Southern California since 1989. His office has been in the same location in Irvine for the past 22 years. He is board certified in psychiatry (since 1977) and in addiction medicine (since 2009). Dr. Anoshivani was one of the first few psychiatrists in Orange County who was authorized by the DEA to prescribe the new partial opiate agonist (Suboxone, Subutex) for treatment of opioid addiction (heroin, methadone, Vicodin, Oxycontin, etc.) Since that time, he has gained a great deal of experience in the successful use of these medications for detoxification and maintenance treatment of appropriate patients. Additionally, he also routinely evalueates and treats patients who suffer from other chemical dependencies; such as alcohol, methamphetamine, cocaine, cannabis and other "uppers" and "downers".
Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional and great listener.
Ellie, The receptionist is not helpful in anyway and not nice at all.
He is amazing
Dr. Anoshivani is the consummate professional. He will help you understand your problem and offer solutions . I cannot recommend him highly enough.
I scheduled for my son Dr Arde and He attended all our expectations.He is very good and I highly recommended him. He is very consistent and very trustful. I'm so happy and my son too.
Most kind hearted Doctor I know who truly cares about his patients.
He made inappropriate comments regarding my personal history: "After hearing everything you have been through I expected you to be a complete mess"
I am so glad to get to know him. He is very kind and professional. Would definitely recommend him.
Great doctor. A Psychiatrist that works with you and actually tries to find ways to AVOID meds is such a breath of fresh air :)
Caring and Compasionate and helps as much as you are willing to be helped.
Amazing doctor actually works therapy into his medication strategy and is awesome
This DR is amazing and very caring. He treated me with tenderness and care. I am so blessed to have met with him. Would recommend him to anyone in need looking for clarification.
For the first time I felt someone was actively listening to me. Thank you so much!
He is arrogant, inconsiderate, impatient, and treats patients as if they are invalid.
I really wanted to like this doctor - he was the only one in my area who takes my insurance - but it just wasn't going to happen. The whole office is, frankly, unprofessional. The receptionist rescheduled appointments at the last minute on more than one occasion, and seemed as though she expected me to do her job for her. She actually sent me home with an assignment at one point, requesting that I call my insurance company to ask why they didn't recognize my member ID. It turned out that she'd typed my member ID number wrong, and I guess she just hadn't bothered to double check whether or not it was correct before making it my problem. Bad move. With regards to the doctor, he didn't really seem to want to be treating me, which I found exceptionally alienating considering that he wanted me to come back every month and a half, and I don't live all that close. Even worse, when I tried to have a prescription filled by my primary care physician over my summer break, he didn't make himself available to take her call. In fact, from what she described to me about the conversation they had, it sounded as though he was rude to her when she eventually got a hold of him. Finally, he refused to work with my primary care doctor to get my prescription filled (after telling me during my last appointment that it wouldn't be a problem), and so I decided I wouldn't be returning to his office. Overall, I felt like I was more of an inconvenience than a patient at this office, but luckily I've been able to make other arrangements. I'm sorry that it didn't work out, I hope that my experience was anomalous, and I wish Dr. Anoshivani and his office well.
He is as real as they come. Genuinely listens. Asks relevant questions that lead him to where he needs to be. Kind eyes. A great experience.
Inattentive and uncaring.
I thought he was great!!! He listens and really takes his time, which is hard to find with doctors. Great doctor
The Dr has a subtle yet direct and effective manner about him. Easy to chat with and obviously well versed in addictionology.

Very knowledgeable. Very patient. Gave me superlative advice. Thanks!
Dr. Anoshivani is a GREAT DOCTOR! From the minute you walk in, his office assistant is warm and inviting. The wait time is always less than 5 minutes, and most important, your confidentiality and privacy is respected by the staff and doctor. His manner and approach to treatment & therapy is superb, specific to you, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Anoshivani, 5 STARS!
Appointments with him started off fine, however over time the quality and service of the doctor and his staff steeply declined. Appointments seemed rushed, and I left with the overall feeling that I was just another number and co-pay to be collected.
A very professional and well run office.
Dr. Anoshivani is very professional and passionate about his job. He is definitely a professional doctor that I would refer to all of my family and friends.

Ecellent doctor! Really cares about his patient's well-being and not just a medicine prescriber! Have seen him for almost 2 yrs and each monthly visit lasts between 40-60 minutes! Great and caring staff too! Thank you!
