BEST physician I've seen yet! Great bed side manner, really cares and takes the time to answer anything you may have trouble understanding. Will definitely be back. I went from the worst gyno Doctor up in central California to the bestgyno Doctor down in San Diego. Two polar extremes. I can't recommend this doctor enough

This Dr. Office was extremely unorganized and unprofessional. They ran a urine pregnancy test without my asking (my appointment had nothing to do with a pregnancy test) I waited in the exam room in a paper gown for over 30 minutes,and they don't even do their own blood work, I had to spend another hour of the day driving and waiting at a different facility to take my blood.

I went back about two weeks later just for test results.. Waited 2 hours. The waiting room smells like raw sewage which is almost torture to have to endure whilst waiting for SO long. I don't think I'll be returning.

Ok, here is the deal. The doctor and all the stuff is AMAZING!! Very quick, professional and lovely! However, the facility's parking at Genessee Ave is a disaster! It took me about 15 minutes to find a parking spot in asuper tight parking garage and then ~20 or so minutes to find my car! The parking is free for only 30 minutes but machines to pay for extra time are not working, of course. So I just had to hand cash to a guy standing next to the gate when I finally managed to find my car and drive out. So if you're going to visit this amazing doctor at this facility, pad a little bit time before and after the app to account for parking disaster. And keep in mind that 9850 building is "Ximed/Surgery". Sounds like it has nothing to do with OB/GYN but don't let it confuse you!

Office was very out dated with wires poking out all over the place. Staff was friendly enough. Waited about an hour, only to be told Dr was still delivering a baby, and would be on her way shortly... Would have beennice to know that when I arrived... Walls were super thin, I could hear every conversation going on around me, above me, and in the bathroom next door... Floor appeared to be dirty, felt uncomfortable with my shoes off. There were nails in the walls where pictures used to hang...

I waited at least an hour once I had been put in a patient room to be seen. The exam was the most painful exam I've ever had. It should have been just a routine annual exam. Something happened during theexam the exam that caused me to bleed. She asked if I experienced bleeding after sex. I do not. The bleeding persisted for FOUR days. The first two days there was a lot of blood. The first day after was very painful. On top of that, she forgot to write the dosage on my bc prescription so I had to go to multiple pharmacies before I found one that would fill it. The only reason I was able to get it filled is because I went to a pharmacy that had filled last years prescription & the name hadn't changed. I specifically didn't want to go to this pharmacy because I recently moved & it's far from my house. I ended up going to urgent care for the pain & bleeding on day 2 after the exam & was told there was visible bruising on my cervix.

I was in town for a short visit so this was my first and only appointment. However my appointment was cancelled without notice when I arrived at the clinic as the receptionist had made a mistake and put me under adifferent doctor's name at another location. That was very frustrating but they booked me for the very next day. The visit when smoothly and I enjoyed getting my check-up by Dr. Tajran who was very courteous and easy to talk to.

I went to her thinking her location was perfect but when I went on my first appointment I couldn't find the office turns out they have moved I called multiple times and no answer which lefted me frustrated then finally asI was driving home I got a call form the office this time they gave me correct directions, I finally get there and turns out it was this tiny little waiting room my husband and I felt like sardines And it. Look a little grudgingly I only saw her five minutes and she sent me on my way as I went to make another appointment her receptionist told me of another office location and of course I moved thinking it was going to be better but I was completely wrong at her other office I never saw her the waiting room there was also small but cleaner it still never makes up for how rude her associate Dr. Was but the one thing that made me stop going through her was used medical equipment thrown in the sink that was my last straw I will never reefer her out!

I've had some atrocious visits with a gynocologist before so I was absolutely terrified to come in but the doctor was super friendly. Very respectful and took the time to get to know a little bit about me which I find quite uncommon. Made my uncomfortable visit quite comfortable.

She rocks seriously I feel so confident with her and any decisions that she makes , She takes her job seriously and so I think that when ever I hear anyone talking down about her its because they are just tosensitive and might wanna talk to someone about seeking professional help. Cause sure you can have a doctor that acts all fake tells ya what ya wanna hear or you can have a doctor that keeps it real with you 100%. And thats Doctor Deena Tejaran. She was recommended to me due to a mass in my uterus and she was very busy the first time I seen her and my step father had taken me on his motorcycle because my car wouldnt start It was raining off and on all that day and it was suppost to get worst. The Doctor was so nice and made it a point to see me as soon as she could so that I wouldnt have to ride on the back of motorcycle in the rain She does have a heart and she truely cares about each one of her patience health . And thats what is her first priority is make sure any woman gets the best medical treatment and any child she delivers makes it into this crazy world safe and sound. I give her 5 STARS ALL THE WAY AROUND

This was by far the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. Rude and condescending staff was unapologetic when I was asked to wait an HOUR AND A HALF after my appointment was scheduled before I was seen. Accordingto other yelp reviews, this is not an uncommon occurrence. Go see someone who values their patients and their time.

1. This Dr. has 3 locations that she practices out of. On her answering machine and on her business card there is no mention of which office she will be working on which days so when you call, you have tocall all three to figure out where they are on that day. 2. I have to say that at no point has anyone been rude to me. Everyone is always polite and nice but how unorganized that office is, the girls in the office must be over worked because it's almost irresponsible how this place is run. I just moved to the area and this Dr. was recommended to me because of my insurance. My first impression was that she is nice, she pokes around inside you and it's cute when she asks, "Are we still friends?" I thought that was funny but then I had to have a test done at Sharp for a procedure they couldn't do in office. New to the area I didn't realize they were sending me to a hospital, no one told me this. I had to call to schedule the appointment and when I called the order for the test hadn't been sent. I called all three offices until I got someone and was told that maybe someone would call me tomorrow. I waited a week and called back, the order for the tests still had not been sent. I called again and they finally sent the order. I was told that they would call me back for the appointment at Sharp, finally two days later I get a call back but I didn't reach it in to, no message left. I called the office and the girl who answered had no idea why I was getting the call. I told her that I needed a test and she said oh, yeah that's probably why they called you then. I'll have her call you back. A day later I finally have the test scheduled. I show up for the test. No one explained to me that this was kind of a serious test. I went alone thinking no big deal. The nurse asks me if I took my advil... what advil? Well didn't they tell you to take advil an hour before the test? It helps with the cramping that the test can cause... at this point I'm upset. She asks did anyone tell you what would happen? No. No one told me. Is this a big deal? At this point the nurse herself looks worried, which doesn't help me any. I get though the test, now worried and as they perform the test, they find something. They aren't allowed to tell me what they think, my Dr. has to tell me. They assure me that the test results will be sent the next day. Now I"m worried when I wasn't before. I give Dr. Tajran 3 days to call me. She never does. I finally call the office and ask if the Dr. wanted to talk to me about my test results. They tell me, well you have an appointment scheduled in a month. I know that, but they found something in my test, doesn't she want to talk to me about it? If it's not a big deal, I'll wait a month. Then the girl says, "No, no no no, you should come in! I'll make the appointment for next week." That scares me to. So I go in and when I show up the office doesn't even have the test results. The Dr. hasn't seen them and I have to wait 30 min for the other office to fax them over. Do they not prepare for my visit? Can she really know what's going on by just glancing at my results? So she comes in finally and tells me I have to have surgery. They tell me they want to schedule it asap. OK. I've called in twice and still the surgery has not been scheduled. They keep telling me they will get back to me. I am not comfortable with this. Would you be?

She is very nice, but she has no experience or understanding of transexuality or pronouns and bedside manner that should come with it. She prescribed me a medication amount that is not fill-able (a partial), and has not responded to mypharmacy or I for over a week with multiple calls and faxes.
