I was a bit leery about seeing a new psychiatrist after a bad experience with my previous one, but Dr. Hamzavi has been amazing. Right away she did her best to try to figure out the problem and get as much information possible. She really put in the time and effort to make sure the previous diagnosis was correct (it wasn't) and took my personal opinion and situation into consideration. When she informed me of what she believed to be the problem she made sure I knew what it was and also suggested I do some research on my own to make sure it was the correct diagnosis. She explained all of the possible side effects of the medication I received and also made sure I was using other methods to maintain my health by being in therapy, eating healthy and exercising. In addition, she had me come back pretty often to check up on how well my meds worked. If you want someone who really cares, is willing to put effort into finding the best method of treatment and isn't just going to toss random scripts at you, then Hamzavi is great choice! **only issue i've had is sometimes scheduling is a bit difficult, but they'll always try to find a spot to fit you in you may however be in the waiting room a bit long.
I thought Dr. Hamzavi was truly excellent. She is compassionate and really made me feel at ease. She was very thorough and asked the appropriate amount of questions before rushing to make a diagnosis or prescribe medication. Highly recommend her.
Dr. Hamzavi is an excellent physician from my first impression. She's alert as well as responsive. When speaking, she listens carefully and in general seems like she wants the best for her patients. I'm really looking forward to my follow up, and to continue seeing her.
Asra was very professional and knowledgeable. She is long-term focused and helping the patient become successful.
The office is beautiful and clean, and the office staff were very friendly! I didn't have to wait long at all to be seen. Dr. Hamzavi is very professional and caring. She took the time to really explain her thought process to me, which I appreciated. She also made sure that I fully understood the risks of certain medications, and talked through my discomfort of some of the side effects that I had heard about. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hamzavi to anyone!
She was very nice, thorough,didn't miss a beat very, very good.
She was wonderful and I really connected with her right away. She is a bit more expensive than most but I read her biography so it wasn't a surprise.
