Verified Patient Reviews
Perfect visit, staff were excellent, some of the best I have ever experienced!
Doctor Karimi was very professional. He made me feel at ease and not rushed. He answered all my questions. I didn't leave his office feeling like I was rushed out. He diagnosed my problem and prescribed the proper treatment. I would definitely recommend him.
Very friendly and professional!
What s wonderful experience. Everyone is friendly n very helpful. So happy to find a doctor and staff Members. Who care. Thank you
Dr Karimi is by far the best physician ive ever met. Incredibly caring, knowledgable, supportive and overall a great person and doctor. Highly recommend to anyone/everyone!
Dr. Karimi was very professional, and as a new patient, he spent quite a while with me. He answered all of my questions and recommended the different options he thought would give me the best results. The end goal being to see an improved me, but natural. I liked that fact that I never felt pushed at any time to have a procedure done unless I felt ready.
Dr Karimi saw me on super short notice! He was very knowledgeable and personable. I'm really thankful I had my ear problem that landed me there on a referral from urgent care. Not only that he examined my 3 year old for me upon request who had recently fallen as we were wondering if his nose was broken. Now we have a great ENT and facial surgeon if ever needed. Thank you Dr. Karimi!
Very pleasant and professional
As always, Dr. Karimi is a wonderful doctor. His surgery on my badly infected sinuses was a complete success and I am very grateful for his expertise and professional, compassionate manner.
Absolutely great and professional. Dr Karimi is the best. I recommend him to all my friends and family.
Dr. Karimi is amazing! He truly is. I needed a 3rd skin cancer removed from my face and I was genuinely concerned and afraid because of 2 prior experiences with another doctor (who isn't a bad doc). However, with Dr. Karimi's knowledge, skill and expertise I was quickly put at ease and rightly so. The surgery was almost painless and results are astonishingly different. One week post op I have a very faint scar that flows with my 'natural tension lines' - "nice way to say wrinkles" :) I'm a nurse and didn't know that having skin cancer removed could be anything but awful. I'll never let another doc touch my face again. I am eternally grateful!!!
My visit with Dr. Karimi went well. Dr. Karimi is very patient and thorough. I highly recommend him.
Love him to death! I come in looking really tired and get out of there rejuvenated with no more headaches. Maryann
He is very knowledgable about his field and makes you feel very comfortable with any questions you may have. The staff are all very nice as well.
Dr. Karimi was great, a real miracle worker.
out of six doctors, first one to actually find the problem with my son. Surgery today. Went very well. He checked in constantly with me and the recovering kid. We love Dr. Karimi.
Loved Dr. Karimi! He really knows what he's doing. Great bedside manner and I will continue to see him for as long as possible. So glad I found him.
Dr. Karimi is truly a caring Doctor as is Dr. Griffiths. In fact, their whole staff is awesome and very thoughtful and professional. They take the time to "remember" you... and your reasons for seeing these fabulous doctors,. I highly recommend them. Period. Vincent Di Paolo
He is fantastic !! The only problem is that this office is out of my PPo network !!! I have USC network blue cross top PPo
Dr. karimi is very knowledgable and really connects with his patients ...makes them feel so at ease :-). I was there for a consult but I saw him in a demonstration a couple of years ago....this was the reason I decided to go conslt with him today because I felt I could trust him and knew he really cares about what the patient cares about...you are not just "a number" :-)
Dr. Karimi was vibrating...and put me at ease. He was able to name the 10 Commandments and recite the 12 Disciples of Christ in alphabetical order. He has a very efficient and kind assistant too. All in all it was a very enlightening visit. Kumbaya!
Excellent & always consistent.
He is friendly honest and on time!!
Dr Karimi was great! I only went to him once but it was a wonderful, easy, and thorough appointment. He's very nice and knowledgable. I would definitely recommend him and I'll be back next time I need anything for my ears!
Dr. Karmi is amazing!! He is so nice and warming like I had known him for a long time. You can tell he really takes pride in what he does and enjoys it. This was my first time seeing him, but I will definitely be going back! He did restylane under my eyes, lips and mouth area. The technique he uses is like nothing that I have seen before. He truly is an artist! I highly recommend Dr. Karmi and I am so glad I found him. I will continue going to him for any and all my treatments.
He's a caring and excellent doctor!
So professional and knowledgeable...so happy I found him
Dr. Karimi was very professional in his manner. Also, he showed concern regarding the problem with my ears and suggested that I have a test to see that I do not have a growth in my ears.
Dr. Karimi is very nice and he takes his time , no rush in my appointment and I appreciate that so much I highly recommend him .
Dr K took a lot of time dealing with an issue that was not his expertise but that I trusted his judgement about. He is smart and kind and always available for us. He is fantastic. And a big plus is he's always on time!!
Love the office staff. I got a next day appointment. His office is fully equipment to diagnose and treat pretty much any condition. Dr. Karimi is always professional and thorough. Despite not having been in is office in over a year, Dr. Karimi remembered my unique medical situation and was happy to see my health was on track.
Excellent Doctor. Caring kind professional and thorough.
Dr. Karimi is GREAT doctor. A treasure in every way. Patient, caring, great sense of humor. I recommend him and his entire staff without reservation.
Excellence! Dr. Karimi took the time and answered all my questions.Dr. Karimi was very clear and nothing left unanswered. I don't feel rush, he was very personable.
Dr. Karimi and his staff are always very professional and helpful, even when I have to make a last minute appointment.
He's as good as it gets! Knowledgeable, professional, kind, cheerful, great 'bedside manner'. (and i didn't mind the short wait as it was a last minute request by my primary care doctor for a second opinion, not only that he came into the room prepped w. my p. care doctor's information. ) I feel very lucky having him on my team.
Dr. Karimi is so kind and knowledgeable. He always makes you feel comfortable and is always patient and answers all of my questions!
Dr. Karimi is very pleasant and has a wonderful bedside manner. He answers all of my questions and gives me his honest opinions. I highly recommend him!
I never write reviews but Dr. Karimi and his entire team are beyond fantastic. Professional, friendly, accommodating and clearly passionate about what he does, I highly recommend Dr. Karimi.
The most important characteristic about Dr. Karimi is his genuine care and concern when your sitting in his chair. My consultation was extremely pleasant, un-rushed and most importantly he really listened. Most Dr.'s dont care to listen to their patients because they feel as though they dont need to, because they are the ones with the answers. But Dr. Karimi felt like a friend, he was kind and really respectful of my concerns. His staff- Chris the patient counselor and the medical biller (cute asian woman) were very sweet and answered all of my questions.
Very rare to find a doctor that takes so much time to talk and explain what is going on. He's also a Doctor that does try to accommodate the patient and does not take advantage of the patient. I guess I've had some bad experiences in the past, that I feel that this is so amazing :)
Love Dr. Karimi! He is very knowledgable, friendly, patient, and kind. He goes the extra mile.
Very efficient and friendly. No wasted time, but did not feel at all rushed. Focused immediately on purpose of visit and addressed issue effectively and directly.
He was very pleasant and knowledgeable! He had a wonderful bedside manner. I will make him my "go to" doctor.
I had a great experience with Doctor Karimi. He quickly diagnosed me and explained my symptoms. The appointment was very relaxed and I would definitely see him again.
Dr Karimi is awesome!
He was great, I just wish I knew when I booked the appointment because he was out of network for my PPO which means the procedure I need done will cost me almost twice as much. If I knew this ahead of time, honestly I would have searched for another doctor in network.
Trust,care and love:) I am so happy my family found this great Doctor. He comes with a wonderful group of staff.
So knowledgeable and kind!
Very efficiently handled.
He is the most sincere, professional, knowledgable, and skilled specialist of his kind. I am an RN in the ENT field. Not only is Dr. Karimi highly rated amongst his patients, but his peers as well.
Love, Love, Love Dr. Karimi. Our 2.5 year old daughter stuck a pea in her nose and Dr. Karimi was so good with her. He explained everything to her and made her feel comfortable. He also gave us his email address and said we could contact him anytime and her would get right back to us. Highly recommend him!
I am extremely pleased with the care I received from Dr. Karimi. I left feeling confident that I understood everything that was happening with my hearing. Dr. Karimi took the time to address all of the possibilities and all of my concerns. His manner was relaxed and attentive, making sure I understood all of the diagrams and results. His explanations were understandable and comprehensive. As further care is needed, he arranged for the appointments and explained what to expect next. Thank you, Dr. Karimi.
Love that Dr. Karimi is so personable - he allays all fears, answers questions and explains everything!!
Very good Dr., office. I saw another Dr. who is a lady who is a Georgetown graduate and she knows and taught me more than any Dr. before her in my entire life. I am going to recommend them to several of my friends.
Doctor Karimi is a great MD!! The office is handled in a professional and friendly manner. Very understanding and always aims to meet patient expectations. Highly recommend Dr Karimi
Pleasant, courteous and a wonderful doctor
I'm an extremely paranoid person and the doctor was patient with me and explained everything thoroughly several times for me to make me feel comfortable. Very satisfied.
Great doctor - very honest and upfront, very thorough and very knowledgeable. Was very apologetic about the wait (which was not his fault) and spent a lot of time with me.
We had been to several doctors as My daughter's situation is complex with Lyme and mold exposure. Dr. Karimi is light years ahead of the others. He explained in detail her CT scan and discussed solutions we never heard about. He is incredible, so very knowledgable and so compassionate! We are thrilled to have found him. He could be one of the top doctors of America. I will return and share more re her progress.
I cannot speak more highly of Dr. Karimi. He performed a laser peel on me. I also had my eyes done. Dr. Karimi was very attentive to my healing, making sure that I healed properly. And the results are AMAZING.
I definitely recommend Dr.Karimi. He is the most friendly, genuine, sincere doctor I have ever been to see. He is honestly interested in your welfare and well informed. He never is rushed and listens caefully to any questions you may have. Really nice man.
Dr Karimi is excellent in every way. Great expertise and personality. I would recommend him 100%.
Both the doctor and his staff were very professional, warm and assured. I would recommend his office to others.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr Karimi. He put me at ease by explaining everything in detail while injecting the fillers. My end result is incredible and I feel & look 5 years younger!
He and his entire team are amazing. I wouldn't trust anyone else.
I was extremely pleased with my appointment. Dr. Karimi knows his field, is very pleasant to deal with, and knew pretty quickly what my problem was and what to do about it. He and his staff are first rate and I unhesitatingly recommend Dr. Karimi & Pacific Eye & Ear, a very good medical practice from the patient's point of view!
HE IS THE BEST DOCTOR IN LA
This was my first appointment with Dr. Karimi, and I found him to exceed my all my highest expectations. He is extremely knowledgeable about all the possible options provided to his patients in a given scenario, and at the same time very personable and patient. One by one he answered my questions with detailed explanations, and most importantly assisted me in arriving at a decision about what I wanted to do. He is very present, and a very focused listener. Could not ask for better.
Dr Karimi is amazing! He cares for my hubby who has a very serious illness. He is a rare breed and we are blessed to have him in our corner!
Dr. Karimi is a talented and caring doctor who knows how to perfectly make adjustments to my face. He knows the exact amount of Botox or filler to do the trick without looking over the top. He is an effective and thoughtful doctor. I'm super glad I go to Dr. Karimi. Very talented doctor who listens to your particular needs and expertly carries out a result that is impeccable.
I had an ear ache for about 4 days. I didn't want it to get worse over the weekend. I called the office at 12:00 pm and got a 1:30 appointment the same day! Dr. Karimi was fantastic! He found a small hair in my ear and removed it immediately. I highly recommend him and his entire staff.
I like him very much. I have confidence in him and I consider him an important asset in my quest to achieve the best personal health possible. I'm very happy that I found him.
He is my friend along with being a wonderful doc!
I read rave reviews about this doctor on yelp.com. I agree he is very knowledgeable, and treated me with a very caring attitude.i have had sinus /allergy problems that started around 3 years ago. he looked into my sinuses and noticed some infection on my Adenoid. I had been reading about how he removed the adenoid on one of his patients, and the sinus problem was no longer there. I have seen probably 25 ENT doctors in the past 3 years and Not one of them has thought to check the adenoid? Thank goodness for Dr Karimi.
Dr. Karimi has a wonderful, caring demeanor. He is highly competent and helpful. I'm very appreciative for his outstanding care and enjoyed his office staff, nurses, calm, intelligent and caring manner as well.
Dr. Kian was very understanding of my situation. I came to him to get a second opinion and that's what he gave me. A thorough exam and ct scan in office. He walks you through it. I only wish I had found him before my basically botched surgery. I believe I would be better by now if he were in charge of my care.
This is my second visit to Dr. Karimi for my four year old. I would highly recommend him to anyone - adults or children. He is incredibly honest and has a wonderful bedside manner. He is thorough and has given recommendations that are mindful, even when his suggestions take money out of his own pockets. Dr. Karimi has genuine integrity.
Dr Karimi replaced another ENT I was seeing at the same facility. I was disappointed in losing her as a doctor, but Dr. Karimi has been an excellent doctor. I have recommended him to other family members and their experience has also been excellent. Dr Karimi and his staff are friendly, very thorough, and attentive. He shares valuable information pertinent to your visit and is very thorough when answering questions. I never feel rushed. He is also very easy to get a hold of and responds to your phone calls soon. I highly recommend Dr Karimi.
He is the best-great attitude, cheerful, smart and caring!
I always come out smiling. My sinuses and I thank him every day that we can smell and taste again! Thank you Dr. K!!!!
Extremely personable, informative, and professional. I was seen quickly, and Dr. Karimi and his staff were attentive. Fantastic results, and I feel and look much better.
Dr Karimi is an absolute professional. He's not just "good", he's a true artist. I have been going to him for three years for cosmetic procedures and it's my little secret from everyone, including my husband! No one can ever tell that I've had anything done, I just got compliments all the time for how young I look or how great my skin is. I don't know what I would do without him!
Dr. Karimi and his surgical staff at Pacific Eye and Ear were amongst the most compassionate, thorough and professional caregivers I have experienced outside my Primary Care Physician, Dr. Joel Feinstein. Their readiness and ability to answer all of my questions and their calming and decisive approach to the best course of treatment made my decision for surgery very easy. While we all need to do our own research to find caregivers that are the best fit for us and our own needs, I would highly recommend Dr. Karimi and the professionals on his staff.
Dr. Karimi- in my humble yet experienced opinion, is unrivaled in his work and a joy to be around while in his office ..... Alongside my OBGYN who saved my life a few years ago (a preeminent NY based doctor), Dr. Karimi is quite simply brilliant, in the truest sense of the word. Knowing I am 100% safe in his care, for years now, he has made me wish that more doctors were as capable of being as smart and kind, intuitive and exacting, an EXPERT in their fields.... It's been years that I've been going to Dr. Karimi, and each time, I'm bewildered at what he creates and cures ..... I'll be forever grateful that I found him after years of searching and seeing other doctors in both New York and California. It's an honor.
Dr Karimi has been treating me for 3 years now. I have had 2 surgeries and get regular botox and fillers. Dr Karimi is an excellent physician. He is knowledgable, very good at what he does, and does not perform procedures that are not in the best interests of the patient. He is very accessible, responsive, conscientious, and really cares about the wellbeing of his patients. If you are considering ENT surgery or facial cosmetic procedures, he is an excellent choice.
Kian Karimi is without a doubt the most knowledgable, efficient Dr. with an awesome bedside manner. His team have fulfilled all of our expectations. Personally I suffer with stage 4 Leukemia and Dr. Karimi has treated me and has done several surgeries for me. How at ease I feel knowing that Dr. Karimi is behind my care he works seamlessly with all my other Dr.s and this is so important to someone suffering from multiple health issues. He is the best!!!!!
Dr. Karimi as well as the staff are great!
Dr. Karemi is awesome, explaned to me the procedure, did it, out the door!
He's amazing & the best ever
He's very professional and knowledgable in his field. The best Doctor I have ever had!
Dr Karimi and his team are always so personable and prompt. They greet each patience as though they are "part of the family" whether it's your first time or you have been to the office for a number of visits. Everyone is professional but very friendly, there is always a thorough check to make sure everything is updated in my file and most importantly I NEVER feel rushed, I feel like Dr. Karimi and his staff always take as much as is needed to answer questions, perform procedures, etc. Not to mention that the Dr changed my life with the sinus surgery he performed on my nearly two years ago, I have been healthier now and on MUCH less medication than i was for the past 5 years. Love this office and the dr and his team, have recommended a number of friends! Thank you!
i would heartily recommend Dr. Karimi. He was professional,yet friendly, and knew speciality.

He is incredible. I trust him with my life.
Very professional, an excellent doctor and the office staff is great! I loved my visit.
Dr. Karimi and his associates at Pacific Eye & Ear are the "go-to" folks int he country for anything ENT related. They are up on the latest research, have the most advanced technology (like a CAT scan that takes literally 45 sec. and emits 1/5th the radiation of conventional scans.
Always a pleasure to see him, even when I'm sick. Dr. Karimi is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, friendly....
Dr. Karimi is an expert in his field and a friendly practitioner. He will give you honest advice, he listens well and is highly skilled. I trust him completely!
He is an excellent doctor. He takes the time and helps you understand what the issues are. He is very cordial, helpful and knows his field.
He communicates well and knows his stuff. He covers all the bases and studied my history to prepare for our appointment. He is professional yet personable and personalizes care to the individual patient.
He's by far the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Intelligent, caring, passionate, and experienced.
Friendly, professional and very knowledgeable.
Excellent. All questions answered simply and completely.
I am impressed with his professional manner and knowledge. He gained 100% of my trust in just one visit.
I am currently undergoing treatment for hyper pigmentation using the ProFractional laser. I am elated by the results achieved after only two treatments! There was no discomfort during or after treatment and I was shocked at how quickly my skin healed after each treatment. I have the utmost confidence in Dr Karimi the treatment recommded by him!
Very pleasant. Staff was very courteous. Doctor was very thorough and informative. Recommend highly.
Great. He and his staff were all very kind and supportive.
Dr Karimi is easy to talk to and he explains things in good detail. He is well rounded and makes connections with different things that can be going on with the body. He makes great recommendations for treatment.
He is very,very pleasant and very helpful.. even asked about my wife..(also his patient)
Professional and easy to communicate symtoms
This office is friendly and welcoming. During my several visits, I have regularly see patients leave with a smile on their face. The staff does a marvelous job of greeting and encouraging all the patients. The doctors are top notch, of course, but the staff makes this a remarkably fine environment.
I appreciated that he fit me in without me having an appointment.
Took my 6 year old in for tonsils and he was fantastic. Empathetic, informative, patient. We really felt we were in good hands.
I found Dr. Karimi very courteous, friendly, forthright and very easy to talk with. I felt confident with him and with his professional manner.
He listens, is thorough and explains everything clearly.
He was very professional and very helpful. He took the time to explain the medications to me and how to use them.
Amazing :) painless !!
Dr. Karimi and his staff were highly professional and caring. They approached my concerns compassionately and thoroughly. I left the office visit with clear expectations for the next step and a plan to identify my sleep and snoring disorder.
Dr. Kian diagnosed my condition and performed nasal surgery to restore my breathing through my nose. That in itself deserves a recommendation. But this human being has a genuine caring soul. He was highly regarded by my general practitioner, and now I know why.
I am beyond satisified with Dr. Karimi and his staff. He does excellent work and always is willing to take time to discuss any questions or concerns I have.
It went smoothly. Dr. Karimi made my worries subside, and was patient and attentive. Thank you!
Dr. Karimi is both professional and patient, attentive to details. highly recommended!
He is the best doctor I have ever seen!
Un doctor muy profesional nos pudimos comunicar excelentemente muy atentó y sobre todo busco una solución a mi problema gracias doctor Kian Karimi
I will be going back gladly!
hes the best
Long wait, but I was quite late, so it's only fair. He used the word "natural" twice during my visit, and I'm always suspicious of people with training in science who equate "natural" with "good for you." But beyond that, highly recommended!
Perfect in every way. :)
He's a very kind thorough and excellent doctor. This is my second time with him and years with the practice. He's my doc there now!
HE is amazing-personable, responsive, the best! Go see him!
Great experience. Knowledgable and taught me about what was was wrong and how to fix it!
Dr. Karimi was terrific and spent a lot of time in consulting me about my allergy issues. I would go to him for ear-nose-throat issues.
The office did not have my appointment made on Zoc Doc.Thank you for being able to take me in at the same time.
very pleased with my appointment!
Dr. was terrific. He was professional, thorough, and courteous.
