Dr. Moallemi and staff were always very courteous and nice. I would have him as my PCP but he moved offices so I can't see him anymore. He always listened and took time to address my concerns and medical issues. AsI look back now after having two not so great PCP, he's a great doctor.

I came to Dr. Moallemi specifically seeking a dermatology referral. My skin has progressively worsened over the past year, and I've tried every over the counter cream and face wash under the sun. I explained this to Dr. Moallemi and hewrote me what I thought was a prescription. He said to apply it morning and night for 4 weeks and then see how my skin was doing before going to the dermatologist. I got to the pharmacy and discovered my "prescription" was for 5% benzoyl peroxide. Literally clean and clear. I paid a copay and left class early to go get a prescription for clean and clear. The pharmacist directed me to the face wash isle like I was crazy when I handed him my slip. The office is pretty sketchy, but at least the receptionist was nice. All in all thoroughly confused/disappointed by this experience.

It was my first visit with Doctor Moallemi after dealing with the same physician for 10 years with whom I had great relationship. I went to the appointment not quite sure what to expect. It was a great experienced other thanI had to wait 30 minutes. Doctor Moallemi is a great listener, experienced and caring. Pascale mastered the art of blood extraction. I highly recommend Dr Moallemi.

Very quick in and out. Dr. Moallemi takes the time to actually listen to your problems, instead of rushing through everything. Feeling like someone actually cares is a necessity for myself and my care in a physician. He far exceeds my expectations:)

The staff and nurses have horrible customer service and demeanor. They don't know what they are doing half the time. For three weeks I am waiting on paperwork that they were supposed to submit and review and they still haven't donethat. I call all the time and there is the same problem of not doing their job. The doctor came 45 mins late and then continued to waste my time by repeating the same thing over and over and keeping me in the patient room while he was filling something out that didn't require any filling out because all that was said to me was that I need to fax out paperwork from the office….. which his now happening for 3 weeks!!!!!!!

It pains me to say this, because I like Dr. Moallemi personally, but I cannot recommend him in good conscience: his bookkeeping practices are totally unprofessional. He retains a billing agent for only a few hours, one day a week. Ispent four months attempting to get the person on the phone to iron out a claims issue I had, and the person never called me or my insurance company back, despite more than a dozen messages that we left. There also may still be outstanding claims that the office has not filed, and my insurance company is still attempting - to my knowledge, in vain - to compel them to file them. If the office gets its billing practices into compliance, I'd absolutely recommend Dr. Moallemi. But it's currently a shambles, and I wouldn't pass on the gigantic pain it's been dealing with them to anyone else.

I used this service thinking I would be helped by a professional. This doctors office took samples from me and told me they have the results but will not give them to me. I've called and they said they have myresults but no one will get back to me. I went to the doctor because I was in pain, seeking help, and now they have my results and won't give them to me for multiple days? Not to mention I did wait in the office for 2 hours when first arriving. Not to mention this doctors staff does not use safety needles, meaning the needles they use here will be a ton more uncomfortable.

Not impressed. Just because I have medi-cal insurance doesn't mean I should have to choose between this guy and one other guy in East L.A.. And no, there is nothing wrong with East L.A. but when you live on the westside driving all that way sucks. In any case, I waited over half an hour for the Doctor to see me. He could only hypothesize what the problem might have been, wanted to put me on antibiotics (of course) and was annoyed that I brought up my meeting with my ayurvedic Doctor and his findings. Sure the Ayurvedic Doctor is not a western medical Doctor but he is able to give me sound diagnosis and results without massive drugs. Furthermore, the Doctor (a health practitioner) coughed into his hand many times and did not wash them. Why is a health practitioner spreading his own germs throughout his clinic? Went to get an x-ray down the street and the clinic never called me back. I had to call 3 times before anyone got back to me with any results. In the end, they knew nothing, found nothing and were unable to help. I'll go back to my Ayurvedic Doctor.

Staff who takes blood/checks vitals do not wash hands/change gloves upon touching you. I had to ask for them to change their gloves after they had been handling various objects such as the phone and their hair. When asked to changegloves, they replied "I'm not going to be touching you"....she was going to take my blood and obviously would be touching me... Hygiene is sub-standard. I have been requesting to speak to the doctor for the past two weeks and have not received any phone call back. I found it hard to interact with the Dr. He gave me a prescription without running new tests. Upon a follow up appnt. he did not read the chart and asked me how something was when I had never had that problem. I do not recommend going here....even if purely based on hygiene/ cleanliness of the place and the people. I've been a couple times and have not once seen anyone wash their hands.
