Dr. Shafipour's staff was both quick and friendly. I filled in my information online prior to my visit, which was extra convenient. I waited less than 5 minutes to be taken to a room. They were also able to adjust my appointment from a specific medical need to a complete physical on the fly. I also also able to get the appointment with about 14 hours notice, which was huge. Dr. Shafipour has a calm bedside manner and an approachable sense of humor. He is also technologically with/ahead of the curve (was taking notes digitally), and also clearly aware of gut flora developments, as he asked about probiotics/kombucha, something my previous doctor (who is quite a few years older) never brought up.

I was so happy to find Dr Shafipour. Even after several visits, he has never made me wait. His bedside manner is excellent and he is very knowledgeable and attentive. I called him once at the end of a prescription and he knew without hesitation (as if reciting from memory!) that I was supposed to take my last pill that day; I was super-impressed.

I thought he was great. I was a little nervous going in, but he was able to answer any and every question I had for him. It could have been because there were no patients waiting, but it was still nice. The staff were all very nice, and very accommodating. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Shafipour is knowledgeable enthusiastic about the latest research and practices for low carbohydrate, high fat diets. I could not find many doctors in the LA area who promoted a high fat, paleo, or ketogenic lifestyle, but Dr. Shafipour is one. If you are interested in learning more about how to improve your health via a low carbohydrate approach, I highly recommend setting up an appointment with him.

Dr. Shafipour is absolutely the doctor I've been looking for for years! After years of being seen by incompetent doctors, doctors that seemed to know nothing of medicine & had very poor bedside manners, it is so refreshing & a huge relief to find such a caring, competent, knowledgeable doctor! I will let everyone I know, who's looking for a doctor, to go to Dr. Shafipour. Nothing but rave reviews from me! And, of course, I must add in a great review to the women at the front desk. They were kind and very professional! Thank you!

Office is calm, organized, friendly, clean, efficient and competent. Dr. Shafipour is well-rounded in expertise, keeps very up to date with the latest studies, and is very well-informed about how diet, gut health and exercise all contribute to other health issues, without being trendy or rejecting the positive aspects of "western" medicine. They also have a comprehensive network for specialist referrals although I have not tested those out yet. Excellent all around, and they take a lot of insurance policies.

He's a super friendly physician, but he didn't beat around the bush when I came in complaining of lower back pain. Within a day I was working with a physical therapist covered by my insurance. The office was well-run. I am usually bad about going to see my general practitioner, but I won't hesitate next time now that I feel comfortable with my doctor.
