This doctor should be titled as a salesperson not a doctor. She thinks of ways of charging patients and their insurance companies before taking care of your health! Run away from this doctor! Run!

She didn't seem to care about what I had to say about my symptoms. Especially when I had dealt with certain ailments before and knew what I needed. I went there just to have some prescriptions refilled because I recently moved to the area and she just told me to lose weight. If other doctors have treated me without commenting on my weight she can too, she was very unprofessional. She implied I should stop taking my birth control even when I said it helped with my depression. She made me feel irrational and like my symptoms were fake.

My initial arrival the office is small and not up to date. I wasn't worried about that. The young ladies at he front desk were very young and one looked like she had just regular clothes on. T shirt and some pants. The other young lady had on scrubs. The young lady that took me to the room asked me some questions and then asked me to take my clothes off from waist down and put on "that" as she pointed to the white sheet. I'm assuming she might be in school or training as medical assistant because her professional isn't up to point yet. The walls were a little thin. I could hear the doctor saying to the young girl to tell me that she will be in soon because she was online doing something. Waited few minutes and Doctor arrived. She was nice she apologized for making me wait because of something that had to do with another patient that wasn't doing well. Overall I didn't have the worst experience compared to some Yelp reviewers but the drive from my new place may be a little far.

After several nondescript general care and obgyn visits in 2016, I last went in to visit Heideh on September 7th complaining of abdominal pain, fever, swelling, nausea and vomiting. In a less than five minute appointment she brushed me off with a dismissal of food poisoning. The next day I ended up in the emergency room with a severe colon infection, severe abdominal pain, and bleeding and had to be hospitalized for four days. She doesn't take the time to properly diagnose and she doesn't listen to her patients. Look on yelp! The reviews for her there are accurate. Additionally, they won't be accepting card so be sure to collect receipts if you go there so that they can't argue that they never received later. Garbage money mill.

I had a really bad experience here. I asked the Dr.Heideh a few questions after my exam and she could not answer them. She said she would get my tests done and that it was her job to get them done but could not answer any questions about why she wanted to get them done. She also said I would get the results in 10-12 days which is much longer than what other doctors take. When I called her on Friday evening, she picked up the phone and I asked her if she could answer one of my questions and she said that the office was closed and wanted me to wait till Monday to get my questions answered and she was extremely rude about it too! Only when I pleaded about my condition and the urgency, did she agree to answer rudely to it. She also never called me back to tell me that my tests results were normal. When I called after 20 days and asked about the results, she was extremely rude in answering that they don't call if the results are normal. All in all I had a terrible experience with the doctor in every which way .

I would definitely recommend her any time to anybody. I like Zocdoc website particularly when I was able to check in on-line to reduce wait at the office.

I have been very well treated, after discussions what should be done and why. Good explanations about the vaccinations I may want to think about but as well an offer and help provided to go find a lab to do a blood test instead . Both , her receptionist and Dr.Khalilnejad were super friendly. Dr.Khalilnejad was very professional and took her time to explain whatever I asked, for to better understand the details.

Dr. Khalilnejad seemed as though she wanted to rush me away from the very beginning. She didn't ask about my current medical condition and began the referral process within two minutes- stating that I would need to see a specialist to receive my current prescription (inaccurate). If she had taken the time to ask, she would have realized that I too have attended medical school and am not unsure about who to see for what meds. In my opinion she just didn't want to make the effort and instead attempted to pass me off to another practitioner. Very 'smiley' and phony in her hello and goodbye but I wasn't buying it.

Lab analysis was completed in 5 minutes. Unsure if that's possible. Was told it would take 15 minutes.
