After a few good visits, it became apparent this practice is laughably backwards. Don't expect your messages or voicemails to be listened to, let alone your issues. As an adult, being berated by a clueless disorganized and despondent doctoris offensive. As a child, damaging. I wouldn't trust my children to see her, don't trust yours.

Excellent doctor. I've never really been inspired to write reviews before, but I'm grateful and pleased to have the chance to do so for Dr. Hamdheydari. When the only psychiatrist I had seen retired a while back, I was okay withjust seeing my primary when necessary...until anxiety resurfaced in my life. I was reluctant to have to go about finding a new psychiatrist, but I'm so thankful to have found Dr. Hamd. I've seen her twice now, and I couldn't be happier. She has many great qualities: very knowledgeable, friendly and pleasant, professional, caring, and very helpful...also nice office, very easy parking, and easy to find. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hamd to anyone.

She examined me. Listened well in our initial interview and prescribed me meds. I'm doing better a week later and can't wait to talk with her again. Please don't think twice about using her to help you. Take it from abroken depressed, anxious, recoding addict who thinks no one can help me. I believe me meeting with her is helping me in my recovery and my help to fix my mental issues. Take it from a self described lost cause. See her.

She knows what she is doing and is great in that sense, but she does not seem really interested in what you have to say. She just wants to give you meds and send you on your way.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hamd for over a year now. She is always very professional and accommodating. I arrived an hour early for a scheduled appointment today and instead of making me wait she was able to squeezeme in between other appointments which allowed me to get to work on time. The staff is friendly and the office is easy to access on the first floor of the building. There is always plenty of parking within steps of the main entrance.
