Qualifications and Experience
I am a board certified family physician graduated from University of Southern California (USC) Family Practice Residency Program in 1999 and have been practicing medicine since I got my MD license on the second year of my residency in 1997. I did my medical school at University of Isfahan, Iran. My practice is a full spectrum family practice. We see patients of all ages from kids to elderly. Our female patient services includes pap smear, endometrial biopsy, and other female health treatment issues. Our nurse practitioner's special interest is in women's health. We are able to accommodate patients within one or two days if it is an urgent issue. I am also a civil surgeon for the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Service and authorized to perform immigration physical examinations for intending legal immigrants. I consider maintaining proper weight for my patients an essential component of a family health clinic. For the past few years I have also included a separate, complete, and successful medically supervised wight loss program. We offer a free workshop for the weight loss program every two weeks.
Verified Patient Reviews
It was a quick experience. However, I was slightly confused at the end. She didn't take tests, but asked me to go to a lab the next day and she would call with my results. I was under the impression that all of this could be done in the office. Nevertheless, it wasn't a terrible experience.
I came in for an appointment, and they took my vital signs and told me to go see a psychiatrist for ADHD, so I thought it was a complete waste of time. When she could’ve told me over the phone. Luckily I have insurance, so I’m not to mad about the visit. All I came for was just a test to see if I had ADHD, I even said that over the phone but instead she kinda just went on with the appointment and told me to go see psychiatrist then come back to her. So in other words, she took my vital signs and told me to go find someone else, and come back if I do have ADHD. I will most definitely not come back.
I'm so thankful I found her! She was very easy going without being aloof and was very good about making me feel as comfortable as possible. Also, shout out to Nurse Robin for being great with me when it came to needing bloodwork - the whole staff is super friendly and informative!
Friendly professional staff. I felt like they all care
There are a few things I was not pleased about, but I'm not going to vent. Its not a "family friendly clinic." This will be my last time going to that place.
Dr. Hamidi has always spent time with me discussing my questions and issues. I have every faith in her ability and knowledge and realize that she is a general practitioner and not a specialized diagnostician but readily recommends specialized doctors when needed.
My visit with M. Michelle Hamidi, MD was great, she answered all of my questions and made me feel very at ease. I Definitely found my new primary care doctor.
Dr. Hamidi is great. I highly recommend her. She is very nice and easy to discuss issues with.
My visit was with her nurse practitioner, Marcy and she was wonderful. Took plenty of time talking to me and I never felt rucpshed or like she wasn't listening.
She was knowledgeable and respectful
Timely openings for appointments, easy location and parking, very helpful and friendly staff, no wait time, perfect!
I am very disappointed with Dr. Hamidi 1- She was in very rush to let me go out without spending time to go through all parts of my lab results. She did not even reviewed part of my lab results, and she told you are fine and you can go. But when I asked about that portion, she checked and noticed it is very higher than normal. If I did not ask about it, she was not even care to spend time to check the results, she just wanted to let me go and see other patient. 2- Also regarding a visit I received two bill for one office visit. Meaning for one visit I need to pay two bills! I will change my physician
As always, Dr.. Hamidi was helpful and efficient as well as sympathetic to my ailments, ordering the appropriate tests to properly evaluate my symptoms.
She was great! Attentive and very nice!
Very thorough, honest, and helpful.
Amazing help with all my problems concerning insurance. Glad to finally have a doctor I'm not afraid to see
Today was my first visit and I only met with the doctor for about five or ten minutes. She seemed to be nice and informative. The staff was nice and the office was neatly kept. This was more of a say hello visit.
Friendly staff and the doctor took the time to really listen to my concerns. I never felt rushed. So happy to have found her via Zocdoc!
Great first appointment. She seemed very caring and thorough.
Always very professional and willing to spend plenty of time to ensure I have the answers I need.
She did not rush, covered all concerns, and recapped last visit. Adjustments were made and we collaborated on best treatments so I was involved with my treatment. Glad I found her.
I was very grateful that though my appointment didn't show up in their system they were still able to see me on time. They were very knowledgeable about my insurance and didn't bother asking needless questions. The office personnel are very professional and kind. I am so happy to have found my doctor!
Friendly and attentive to needs. Looking forward to following up with her.
Dr. Hamidi is gracious, perceptive, and patient with the people she sees. My blood pressure went down after talking with her, and sharing much needed fears about my health. Her practical wisdom trumps the hotshot attitude that many Dr's assume with Dr/ patient relationships ... Dr. Ha midi is personable, wise, and gracious, a very winning combination of personality. I would highly recommend her to someone seeking a genuine and compassionate physician.
I recently moved into this area and was searching for a Primary Doctor. The first consultation visit was impressive and this office is now my new found Family Doctor. Fritz S
The whole staff was kind and friendly. The office was clean and well put together. I explained to Dr. Hamidi the reasons for my visit and she went above and beyond to understand and get me exactly what I needed. Highly recommended after my first visit!
Good listener. Asked pertinent questions. Pleasant and helpful. Appreciated her diagnosis and follow up tests.
my visit at the doctors office was very satisfactory
I'm so glad I chose Ms Hamidi, She was very caring and made me feel relaxed. I have struggled to find a doctor since I moved out here and am relieved I have finally found the right one.
I'm very happy to have found this doctors office. The receptionist and nurses were all very kind and professional. I was a first time patient in Dr. Hamidi's care but felt very comfortable as if I've been seen by her a few times before. I'd definitely recommend her to other patients and I will continue to see her.
What kind of doctor can't spell, has to google your symptoms on her phone, and has to google if the medication she wants to administer to you is ok to take ( I'm pregnant by the way ) ??!!?? Nope would not refer or will go back
Good doctor, unprofessional staff.
Went to my appt. I was seen, I was there about 45min. Then the MD came back and said they didn't take my insurance.. The lady at the front was very nice, never the less when they realized they didn't accept my ins. I was completely ignored by the MD.
Great! THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!
Very thoughtful and patient
Dr. Hamidi is very knowledgeable and the staff at the office were friendly. Dr. Hamidi was very helpful when answering my health concerns, although I had hoped we went through all of my list of concerns. This probably was overlooked because of the amount of time we spent on one topic. But overall, I would recommend her to anyone.
Everyone in the office was very friendly! It was a first time appointment so I didn't need much more than a referral and perscription renewal but Dr. Hamidi was very professional and helpful. I'm happy to have found a primary care doctor here in San Diego.
Very professional and knowledgeable. I was happy that her first response to my illness was not to put me on medication.
I was most impressed by her "bedside" manner. It was more like talking with a knowledgeable friend rather than a "Doctor." Also--my being a doctor myself--I was impressed when I told her that I was diagnosed with an atypical disease (that required no further diagnostic tests or treatment) Dr. Hamidi openly admitted that she was unfamiliar with the disease and said not only would she look it up but asked reasonable questions that a patient with the disorder would know.
She took a lot of time with me and her staff was great.
Very nice doctor, took the time to explain things to me and answered all my questions. My previous doctor retired and so need someone new.
1st time at the office I gotta say it was great. I got in fast and didn't feel rushed during the appt. She answered all my questions. Am glad I came, she'll now be my primary doctor.
What a wonderful experience just like before the entire staff is very friendly. And every person made me feel comfortable. Thank you Dr. Hamidi.
The staff was super friendly, the visit was prompt. I would definitely head back to this office because of such a pleasant first experience.
I haven't been to a physical in years, but both Dr. Hamidi and the nurse were extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. She seemed genuinely concerned with my issues and listened to what I had to say. Overall I am extremely pleased with my visit and will be back in a month for my followup.
My wife and I have gone to Dr. Hamidi since she took over the practice from the previous doctor. She is a great doctor and a very nice person!
She has her own addenda and doesn't listen to patient. I will never go back to her again.
Very pleasant. It had been a long time since I had a good experience with a doctor.
Serious women with a great sense of humor. I feel very comfortable having her look after my health
I came in to get a prescription refill and ask a few health questions, and I found the doctor to be abrasive and skeptical for no reason. She was pushy and not helpful at all, especially after waiting for over 30 minutes in the waiting room. It was the weirdest experience and I will never be back.
The doctor was very kind to me,my mom and I liked her alot,and the nurse too.I will defenetly go back,I recomend Dr. Michelle Hamidi to other pacients we liked their positive attitud.
Very efficient & caring staff. Dr Hamidi listened well, came across as knowledgeable, professional & caring
Good- She told me I needed to go to the ER- So I did and turned out I needed to as I had a nasty infection in the elbow.
My experience with Dr. Hamidi was really great. Her and her staff were seriously awesome.
Just moved to SD and I plan on making her my regular doctor!
My primary care doctor stopped practicing for medical reasons after 20 years of care. I found Dr. Hamidi recently and had my first appointment. I did not feel rushed, gave her my history and am set up for a annual physical after blood work is completed. She seemed very thorough and helpful at this appointment but I will reserve further feedback until after a true medical appointment.
Stopped by Dr. Hamidi's office for my first visit after moving to San Diego, for an annual physical. Everything went off on time, I was in and out in under an hour, the staff was friendly and helpful, and Dr. Hamidi was professional and efficient. No complaints...thanks!
Omg she's the sweetest n easiest doctor to speak with. Took her time , I felt that I wasn't rushed through would recommend this doc to everyone I know
The staff was very friendly...However it took almost 1 hour for me to get seen. She undermined the pain that I felt, told me I had no broken bones and did not prescribe a pain medication. She then left the room abruptly. I felt as though she was in a rush left me hanging.
She was very nice and helpful. An altogether good experience!
Great staff, friendly and professional.
Very welcoming, we talked about what was wrong and she made recommendations and I was in and out in a timely manner
not accomidating didnt understand my issues and could not help me!
