Professional Statement

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.

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.

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

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.

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'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

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.

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.

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.
