He sent me to a cardiologist for an echo & cardiology wouldn't accept me w/o proof of prior authorization. I guess my issue is with the referral...

Great listener. Very thorough. I have a tough problem a regular internist has not been able to solve and he was clear that he was determined to solve it. Comforting. Informative. Created a good plan to move forward. The wait waslong - over an hour - I was told it was because of something that came up at the hospital that AM. Guess that happens. Proof will be in the pudding of an actual solution, but right now, I feel like I am working with someone who is on the same page as me and committed to helping. That's exactly what I needed at this juncture.

I needed to get in right away and Dr. Hakimian, as well as his staff, were absolutely wonderful. He took his time during the appointment and answered all my questions, even repeating some information when I asked. He showed genuine concernand was very personable, in addition to being very knowledgeable. He and his staff went above and beyond to make sure I received the testing I needed that same day. This is someone who cares about patients and excels in his field.
