The office was very accommodating. We had a time constraint and Dr. Khorsandi pushed us through so we wouldn't have to reschedule. Dr. Khorsandi is extremely friendly and put my son at ease. It's nice to finally have a fantastic doctor close to home.

My husband and I and my kids are the patients of this office, and I have been consistently happy with the service. Appointments are fast! The front office and the nurse are both very professional, sometimes they teach nurse students butthat doesn't bother me because I get a very thorough exam by them, Doctor Parisa spends so much time with us, so much that I feel we are her only family!The practice has a more personal feel. They are also good at returning calls. Highly highly recommend, you are in good hands.

They told me they took my insurance after I asked MANY times if they do. Turns out they don't and now I may be paying out of pocket when it was the mistake of the secretary for assuring me it wascovered. If you don't take all "Groups" under my plan, then TELL ME that and tell me I should verify with my insurance. Very disgusted with this place. Also, wasn't very clean or a "nice" looking place. Was surprised for the Santa Monica area. Will never be going back.

This was the most inefficient and not helpful doctor I've visited. I got there 15 minutes early prior to my 1pm appointment. I've already filled out their new patient forms online to save time but the receptionist insisted that I doit again. So I did it. Waited outside until 1:10PM and then they told me to go into the room where the nurse checked my blood pressure, height and weight. Then he escorted me to wait again in the room next door for the doctor to come. I sat in the room for another 10 minutes waiting for the doctor but the practice doctor came instead. She asked me the exact same questions I've already answered on the patient forms like any past medical histories, do you drink alcohol or how much caffeine do you drink a day etc. I told her about my cough , cold and how my eyes were itchy and then she just told me it'll pass. She said she would get the actual Dr. Khorsandi to come in to take a look. I wait for another 10mins and I was beginning to become impatient. So I opened the room door and asked if the doctor was coming. After another 5 mins, she came in and basically told me NOTHING. By the time I left the office, it was 2PM. I waited for so long just to have the actual doctor talk to me for 2 minutes. This was the worst experience ever and I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

Great pediatrician. She will work with you on an alternative vaccination schedule and she will spend time getting to know your child. She is always available to answer your questions via email (usually within a few hours) or by phone inurgent cases. We had nothing but great experience with her over the past 2 years.

I went to Dr. Khorsandi to have my birth control and anxiety medication prescriptions refilled. I have had them refilled by my doctor in Sacramento previously and recently by my campus doctor, but since I just graduated from school I hadto find a new doctor. Dr. Khorsandi told me that I should "get off anxiety meds because I am too young" and hesitated to refill the prescription even after I showed her my empty Rx bottle and told her repeatedly that I only take them as needed for panic attacks. No one should be told that they are "too young" to have a serious mental illness, or be told anything that invalidates their condition. Doctors with attitudes like this are the reason so many people with mental illnesses live their lives ashamed and thinking that they don't have a legitimate medical condition. I will not be returning to any doctor who treats me, a 22-year-old woman, like a child who is "too young" for a serious medical condition that I was diagnosed with over 5 years ago. And it is my hope that Dr. Khorsandi would not treat anyone else who comes to her with a mental illness in the manner that I was treated.

I went in for an annual check up and she didnt even have the materials to do a Pap smear. I really don't understand how she could be considered an internal medicine doctor if she doesn't have the materials to doan annual test. Her appearance was disheveled and it seemed like she forgot she was coming into work today.

My daughter has been coming here for a year. Dr. Khorsandi has a great bedside manner and is very good with children. She gives you undivided attention and ample time during each visit. Since my daughter is very healthy, each visithas been easy with the exception of the shots that she has to get sometimes. Her office staff can be a bit disorganized with insurance issues but other than that, everything has been great.

We had a wonderful experience with Dr Khorsandi! I made the appointment a few hours beforehand and was pleasantly surprised with the easy parking, warm welcome as I walked in, and fantastic encounter with the Doctor. She was engaging with allmy kids, patient with us, clear with her explanations and easy to talk too. I highly recommend Dr. Khorsandi and I am grateful she was able to see our sick infant in such short notice.

Dr. Khorsandi was kind and pleasant. She shares the practice with her husband, the other Dr. Khorshandi, who was present when she wanted to ask a second opinion. At one point both doctors spoke to me together about the pros andcons of a medication. Second opinion for no cost, time or hassle? Unprecedented and so great! I will be visiting again and had a very nice experience, i mean, for a physical.

I would not go again. I booked this appointment because I am new to the area and have GHI insurance, according to Zoc Doc and their website they accept. I was contacted one hour before my appointment and told that theydo not accept this insurance. Apart from that the reception is rude. Also thir office was not able to download my personal information. I was not seen by the doctor I booked intially, the doctor (not nurse) who saw me was very kind, sweet and informative. But she then brought in the doctor who proceeded to try to convince me use Chantix to quit smoking. Even after I explained I was not longer smoking. When I asked her if she is an allergist. Which Zoc Doc states that she is also a allerigist.

Dr. Khorsandi is extremely attentive to our needs and concerns. She was very good about giving us options to treat our daughter's condition and recommended specialists when it was outside her area. She always followed up with a phone call tosee how our little one was doing when she was sick and even the time we went through a hospitalization for pneumonia. She's great!

I love love love Dr. Khorsandi, It took me a while to write this review but now after 3 years I feel obligated to spread the word out about Dr. Khorsandi, She is a GEM in Santa Monica. I rather privateoffices more than a large group practice. This was my Initial draw but when I got to the office and met her and her staff, and I found out that she is a mother of young children herself I was reassured even more that she is up to date. She is courteous and knowledgeable, My daughter was very sick and she took care of her beyond belief. Afterwards she called us every day to make sure my daughter is doing better. She answers right back even at 2 am with a very calm and reassuring tone. I love her staff as well, front office are organized and professional, they work with you patiently. Highly recommend.Thank you Dr. Khorsandi for being a shinning example of what other doctors should be!!

Super disorganized, waited 40 minutes in the waiting room and they don't validate for parking. Once you finally meet the doctors, they are friendly and nice but I would never go back. Extremely rude, lazy and disorganized receptionists.
