Verified Patient Reviews
Incredibly helpful, valuable information all provided in a knowledgeable and compassionate manner. Excellent doctor and highly recommend. Great wealth of information all presented in an understandable and kind way.
She only believes in the most traditional method. Anything is involve with newer study, information, and technology she will reject and refuse them. She does not even measure patient's body fat. The information she gave you can just google and learn. Very outdated style and information. Quite disappointed.
Welcoming & knowledgeable!
I went to Dr. Dadkhah because I am diabetic and having a hard time losing weight. I felt really relaxed talking to her and didn't feel judged when I admitted I really like fried food. :) We made small goals which I think were pretty reasonable. My biggest issue other than being a lover of fried foods is exercise. Dr. Dadkhah gave me some suggestions of on what exercises I can do without hurting my injured back. I am definitely will continue to see her.
The visit with Dr. Dadkhah went very well. As soon as I walked in, she asked me to come back. She is very friendly and knowledgeable. She actively listened to my concerns, and asked questions to get a better sense of my current diet and exercise plan. We developed an action plan for me to work on over the next two weeks was very reasonable. I'll be returning to her in 2 weeks for a follow up.
The doctor was nice, but not flexible to the customer's needs. She had me watch a video on the impact of sugar on the body that I could have Googled. She had no plans or meal plans available. I didn't understand the purpose of our visit if she had no plan to offer. She stated that the point was that she was my cheerleader. Really??? I REFUSE to pay a professional to be a freaking cheerleader and receive no real plans or weight loss medications. Her practice is a joke.
Dr. Dadkhah is a great listener and will provide you with the facts. She answers every question and is thoughtful in both her approach and in executing the right plan for you.
Dr. Dadkhah took time to ask questions and answer my questions as we developed a nutrition plan that is right for me. Highly recommended.
