Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice, friendly, kept on point, gave me a few options and had some suggestions for treatment now and in the future.
I thought he was very thorough and just the right doctor for my injury.
Amazing. Dr. Samimi has been fantastic and the results I've gotten from working with him have been amazing!
Fantastic all around. Thoughtful, attentive and very responsive with feedback, patient education and treatment.
Explained things well and listened to my problem
My first experience with Dr. Samimi was great. For my follow-up consultation, I felt that he couldn't care less. His attitude was awful and he didn't even care to look at my exams properly. I will not be returning to see this doctor, and I truly regret that I went to see him in the first place.
Dr. Samimi was great. He asked me a lot of questions and was very patient while I explained everything to him. Very polite, knowledgeable and straight forward. Would recommend him.
Dr Samimi ALWAYS takes the time to listen to your concerns and he explains procedures very clearly
Dr Samimi is the best !! So nice and very caring and actually listens to you ?? I highly recommend Dr Samimi , been seeing him for 6 months due to a shoulder fracture and couldn't have received better care anywhere and the office staff is great and so is the lady in the parking lot ! 1 hour free parking with validation ??
Very much enjoyed his beside manner, his knowledge, his willingness to answer all questions and explore conservative alternatives before more radical ones. Would recommend him very highly, though the wait time (45 minutes) was a little frustrating. On the hand, the place is also an urgent care facility so that probably accounts for some of it.
VERY professional! He tells you how it is and to the point. Plan on waiting a few extra minutes because he takes the extra time to answer all your questions. Felt more comfortable and less stressed after the consultation with Dr. Samimi. Will definately recommend to everyone!
He offered me no diagnosis and nothing proactive to do to help my injury. He simply stated that it will be better in four weeks. Four weeks later and there is no improvement. I got the impression that the general attitude was "if don't require surgery at this time, I'm not concerned with you". From personal experience I know that if injuries aren't handled properly from the onset, the effects can be long lasting. Very disappointed in the level of care offered.
This was only my first visit with Dr. Samimi, but he was very nice and seemed very reasonable in his approach to treatment options.
I completed all new patient documents on zoc doc upon making the appointment (4 weeks ago). However, they did not look for them and down load as part of the file. On arrival I had to complete them again. Dr. Samimi is very thorough. Excellent bed side manner. Listened, and in no hurry, no rush. He knows what he is doing. I recommend him. However, perhaps the office staff can be assisted with a reminder of the paper work I completed via zoc doc, about 4 weeks ago, to be part of the file. Thanks, Rich
He was alsom he explains every detail and ready help full
Very friendly and professional
Dr Samimi was very friendly and understanding. He listened to my issues and recommended several options in my treatment.
Great experience - Dr Samimi was very professional and knoweldgable. We had a very thorough and professional discussion about my history, my issue and he provided sound advice.
Great experience. Well organized. Everybody knows what they are doing.
Great bedside manner, very empathetic and informative and rather unique.
Very pleasant, explains everything very patiently
Dr. Samimi was to the point, clear, knowledgeable. He listened well and analyzed quickly – after I was able to get an appointment for an urgent knee problem the very same day. Happy so far.
It was good. But they do not accept the online ZocDoc paperwork. Just wait until you get there to provide your patient information.
Very nice and friendly, and took the time to explaine everything !
He was a very receptive doctor.
I would recommend Dr Samimi. My whole visit was met with great service.
Attentive, thoughtful, thorough. Also a very nice guy.
Was very pleased with the experience and will be returning to his office! My husband felt confident in Dr's assessment and recommendation as to treatment!
I enjoyed the visit. Everything professional. Thanks
went to the w covina clinic. lotsa energy and smiles in the atmosphere! looked like everyone helped each other to get the job done.
This was my first visit. Went there 30 minutes before my appointment to make sure i was done with the paperwork. My actual appointment time has arrived, waited 35 more minutes, then i have been called. Of course, there was a 10-15 minutes wait in the exam room. Then, the doctor came. He had excellent manners, he was so welcoming and informative, however, he wasn't Dr. Babak. I told him that i have no problem being seen by him,but i made the appointment with Dr. Babak...He was still nice, although I was afraid that i had offended him which was not my purpose. I was only confused because i have found Dr. Babak through internet search and their website was showing only two physician names--father and son Babak's and i made the appointment with the son, so one can imagine the confusuion. Anyway, Dr. Babak came to the room and he continue witht the exam. Both physicians were great, friendly, and very informative...ready to answer questions and help. If there wasn't a long waiting time and being seen by another doctor at first -still it wasnt a big deal IF i was being told before, i would give more stars. First impression is important and it would be better if i didnt have to wait that long on my first visit...doctors , on the other hand, is highly recommended.
He was awesome! I had seen 2 other orthopaedic professi9onals and he gave me a ton more information than they ever did. I'm so happy I went for a 2nd opinion.
Very nice office staff and physician. I would recommend him to my friends.
Doctor is super nice and stuff are all excerent !!
he was professional, smart, knowledgeable
long wait but overall he was great to deal with. Ive dealt with a lot of doctors and when he finally saw me he was very helpful and made me feel comfortable that he knew what he was doing
Highly recommended. I had a great experience.
A very good Doctor and a "mensch".....
He is very professional.
Probably the best office visit experience I've ever had. I was seen quickly (even though it was late in the afternoon) and he was really on the ball. He gave freely of his time and encouraged any questions - which was quite refreshing. I would highly recommend him!
