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.

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.

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

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.
