I thought the office was in a nice building. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Dr Pouya Shafipour took his time in explaining condition and treatment and catered to my list of bullet points of things I wanted to cover about my health. Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Shafipour to friends and family.

Both times I have gone to see him have been very great experiences. Having just moved here and being afraid of meeting a new doctor I can trust, Dr. Shafipour has made the transition very easy for me.

Went in for my annual physical, which was quick and easy. Wait was short. Doctor and staff were nice and answered all my questions. For free parking, you have to park on the street and most of the streets adjacent to the clinic were 1-hour only. Was a bit worried, but I didn't wait at all so got in and out in about 45 minutes, even with a ton of questions about my upcoming travel.

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.

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.
