Professional statement

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".

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 lastminute 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.

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.
