Very pleasant indeed. I was seen right away. The staff was pleasant and welcoming. I am a new patient shopping for a primary care physician. Both Dr. Banafshe and his staff and his staff were familiar with one of my specialists,a big relief. Office is close to home (I could walk) and is also an urgent care facility. After spending the last eighteen months in HMO/PPO hell, it doesn't get better than this!

Unfortunately I was late due to another appointment at an imaging center causing me to run behind schedule. Dr. Banafshe and his staff squeezed me in and I didn't feel rushed at all during my time with the doctor. It's goodto know that his patients receive the same amount of time and attention despite the circumstances!

Really nice guy, with a great bedside manner. I have some unique medical needs and preferences, and he's knowledgeable enough to understand those and work with them. The office team is great. I really appreciate their ability to do basic lab work on-premises. Finally, their facilities are new and nice.

Dr. Banafshe is fine. He gave a quick exam when I was sick with a URTI. The medical staff, however, is incompetent. They never called me after my appointment to review my blood test results. I called 4 times to havemy results emailed to me and they still haven't sent it. They kept getting my email incorrect. I wouldn't hold your breath for results from this place.

It proof to me that bigger isn't always better. In transition from a well known LA health care institution to another one I had to see a doctor prior switching and came across Dr. Paymon Banafshe and.........what u know, I wasimpressed with the facility, promptness, professionalism and particularly with this doctor's approach to understand my needs, study my medical records, ask the right questions and go about getting my health update status. Even if I choose to switch to another health care institution I'll be seeing Dr. Paymon.....Just in case! LAC/Hawthorne,CA

I met Dr Banafshe for the first time today. He is very approachable, a good listener and had a good understanding of what my health concerns were and I came away with a clear plan of action. It is a busyoffice, but the staff, nurses and doctors didn't make me feel rushed. I looking forward to having Dr Banafshe take care of my primary health care needs.

His staff has a chip on their shoulder as all of them have a bad attitude. When I went in to see him, I spent more time waiting than actually seeing him. He came in, asked a couple questions, reminded methat I was fat, then that was it. It was about 5 minutes start-to-finish. I wasn't happy at all about the visit.
