I've never been to a gynecologist before, so I was pretty nervous; safe to say I was welcomed immediately as I walked in, as if they were expecting me instead of just another patient. The receptionist was very polite and personable. I was taken care of immediately-- no wait time at all and even in the patient room. Dr. Heideh was very polite and professional, she helped me feel comfortable and at ease. She listened to my concerns and my issues genuinely and I appreciate her willingness to inform me of expectations/recommendations of visiting a gynecologist. Thank you very much for a pleasant experience! Not sure how she has any ratings below 4 stars after this visit!

My experience with Dr. Khalinejad was the most unprofessional Medical appointment of my life. Her assistant, who took my initial information, uses an IUD, and I had come in because my IUD strings were no longer available and the possibility that I may be pregnant. She went on a tangent about how that's the contraception she uses worriedly, to the point where I had to stop her by saying "well the good news is that it's not happening to you, it's happening to me". The doctor herself literally told me to not bother with an ultrasound, that the IUD wouldn't cause problems even if it did go higher, as if I should just let thisIUD stay in a part of my body where it was ineffective. The doctor, who identifies herself as an OBGYN, doesn't even have an ultrasound machine - she has to refer you elsewhere. Furthermore, the doctor didn't even know where her equipment was. So there I was, sitting spread eagle with the jaws of life shoved up me, and she had to leave the room, go get her assistant who also came into the room without the doc asking if I was comfortable, and began frantically searching for this missing object that they wanted to shove up my hoo ha. Just when I thought this experience could not be worse, she refers me to a lab for an ultrasound. She is speaking with them so loudly over the phone that I can hear her from the lobby. Another patient walked in. The doctor comes out to the lob and proceeds to sit next to me, read all of my information to the lab person over the phone, including why I was in, and the other patient can fully hear this. I didn't even show up to that ultrasound, I just made an appointment at another docs office.

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.

When I explained my problems, the doctor talked like I was making them up, rather than trying to help. At one point I believed her. Later I visited someone else and they took me seriously. Pls read the reviews on Yelp about her. Each office visit is strictly for 15 min. If you went a second over it, she would not listen and force you to come back. Extremely commercial ! Rude at times. Taking time out of your schedule and making trips to her office for just 15 min seems ridiculous.

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 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.
