All she wants to do is send you out for tests. Never heard of a Gyno who in the 2 days I was there ever took a urine sample from me. Her communication is terrible. How can this doc care abouther patients I emailed her about some concerns she wrote me back yesterday and says she’s calling me today. Today as far as I’m concerned is over! Terrible very hard to understand

I liked her & all but being I was patient there for the first time seemed like a very RUSHED appt, which I do not like. Half of what she said I’m still confused. I also told her I had backpain and she never addressed the issue when I called back the receptionist lady like didn’t understand either, just annoying

I’m ver happy with my visit! I am a new patient and I went in for an annual PAP and was pleasantly surprised and how attentive Dr. Dadgar was. She listened to me and immediately pieced together my list of symptomsand recommended that we investigate for hormonal issues. I’ve brought these symptoms up to a male OBGYN Dr before which dismissed me. I’m relieved to hear that I’m not just overreacting or crazy thinking something was actually wrong and that someone actually wants to help me figure out my problem and help me get better! I will be returning in the future! :)

I was very hesitant about visiting Dr. Shabnam Dadgar's office after reading previous reviews but I needed a last minute OB-GYN appointment and she was available. The office staff is quite unorganized and was not very clear about my medicalcoverage so they needed to call my insurance to verify. Dr. Shabnam Dadgar was very warm & sweet! It was my first prenatal appointment & I've consulted with several doctors but she truly put me at ease. I look forward to our next visits and she even talked to my husband about what he should expect & can do for me. I wish that I could keep her through the duration of my pregnancy but she stops seeing patients at 20 weeks then I will go to another doctor within her group.

Before coming to this Dr I was already prescribed birth control that I’d been taking for a year. I then went to her and told her and she gave me an annual exam and pap and prescribed it to to meagain. After the initial prescription filling I went to get my next Months supply and she hadn’t filled it. I contacted her office and she said I would have to come back and be checked out to make sure everything was fine. I told her I could fax over my prior records of being on it for a year and that I had Could also fax over a recent primary care visit o had after hers where they confirmed my weight and everything else was healthy, but she refused to accept that and said it was the law that I would have to come in. I then emailed the board because I knew that couldn’t be true and sure enough, it was a bold faced lie. This dr should be ashamed of lying to her patients just to get them In for more money. I’m not even sure if that is insurance fraud, but it is just unacceptable to lie to your patients like that. I then looked her up on yelp and saw she is known for this type of behavior.

The first time I went to see this doctor she was nice and came off rude but that's just personality. Everything you do in that office is verbal agreement, They tell you what you want to hear. I called back aftermy IUD Procedure to get few more information after my procedure and they said I should have asked all of this information. They are only able to tell me the side effects but they do not have a brochure to explain what my body will be going thought after the IUD. She basically was yelling and getting frustrated with me because I kept asking question after my Third call. even thought I was able to reach her after a week or 4 calls later, she was more focused on scheduling a teller conference just so she can charge my insurance and me with more bills. This is a very unorganized and unprofessional office. You are better off going to t a different office than this office. Thank you.

Dr.Dadgar was very professional. She has a busy practice, and it's obvious that everyone there works as a team. I felt that my privacy was maintained throughout the visit. I feel the office was very efficient in the way it runs.The doctor took her time and made sure all my questions were answered and that I understood everything. I did not feel the visit was hurried or rushed at all. The ladies at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this doctor.

This was the absolute worst experience I've ever had with a doctor, let alone an OBGYN. The receptionists and front office are completely disorganized and lack the basic attention to detail needed to do their jobs. They also refused to giveme my results, even after I jumped through every hurdle they put in front of me. After seeing me for all of 10 minutes, Dr. Dadgar proclaimed something was wrong - possibly fibroids (which is terrifying and can leave someone infertile) - and that she needed more time to study things. I had to make another follow-up appointment just to get my results and STD testing for that same week. When I showed up, I was told I needed a sonogram also and would have to be charged for the visit and the exam. The person doing my sonogram asked me if I was pregnant - as he was doing my sonogram - I couldn't help but say "you tell me" (I have an IUD, I know for a fact I was/am not pregnant; also this person was literally looking inside of my uterus when he asked me this - it was not a pre-exam question, which is normal). I had to remind them to do my STD/HIV testing before they rushed me out. And then, after taking several samples of blood, the nurse all of a sudden realized she had the "wrong order" and needed more blood. I could barely stand after. In follow-up, every time I asked for my results on the PAP or bloodwork, I was told I had to come in for another appointment (a third one). It wasn't until I went to another OBGYN that I was assured the pain I was feeling was just a symptom of my IUD and OVULATION - which left me in shock because, how could a proclaimed OBGYN not know ovulation cramps are more painful than regular ones? From the first time I visited this office to when I finally was able to get them to send my results to the new doctor AND refund me the additional amount they charged me (which I only noticed because I check my EOBs) - it took 6 painstaking weeks. I'm relatively sure this practice takes advantage of Medicaid recipients and I hope something more concrete is done for accountability purposes.

Dr. Dadgar is fantastic! After avoiding my sexual/reproductive health care needs after a hysterectomy in 2012, Dr. Dadgar is exactly the gynecologist I needed. She is a great listener; a physician with an amazing skill set and mastery of proceduresthat she is equipped and capable to have take place in her offices; and she so nice! Just as with any physician (with hospital rights), emergencies take precedence and you may have to wait. But once she's in with you, she is present - and that is always appreciated.

My appointment was for 11:30, I got there at 11:10 to fill out paperwork when I walked in the front staff where on the phone, after they got off the phone they did not seem to care that I was there,it was not until the back staff informed them I was there for them to give me the paper work to fill out by this time it was already 11:30! Once in the back the Dr. was very polite towards me but I did not like that by force she would want me to go on a birth control method I do not like! Also some things she said are to be said in front of your staff not of your patients, there was a patient who was new asking as to why they needed to collect deductible even before she is seen, they doctor said in front of me “well if she doesn’t like it she can leave” that is not something you say in front of another patient who is seeing you for the first time! Another thing I did not like is the fact she makes you go into her office to discuss instead of explaining everything in the actual exam room!

I really enjoyed the doctor and felt assured that she was very knowledgeable. Her office staff is terrible. It took me 16 days to get my birth control refilled. After I had been calling about it for 5 days, I wastold I had to come into the office for a visit or else she would not write me the prescription. The office staff also never communicates with the doctor why I am there. She clearly has a lot of patients so I cannot fully blame her for not remembering my whole history etc. so she has definitely asked me the same questions over and over and asked me why I am there when she asked me to come in the first place. They also will not give results over the phone. They charge for "televisits" which includes a fee for the wifi. It fully feels like a scam.

Terrible. Appointment was at 1:30 PM but I sat in the waiting room until 2:30 until I finally saw her at 2:50 PM. (At that point I was late for another appointment that I had scheduled) she did not introduce herselfor apologize for the lateness but instead was extremely aggressive and rude. After 5 minutes of answering her questions about my health history/reasons for visit I felt so uncomfortable that I told her I was not comfortable and needed to leave and I did not want to be seen/ examined by her. She yelled That I need to explain why I did not feel comfortable and made me feel like I could not leave her office. She told me I would be charged a "cancellation" fee BEFORE I was allowed to leave her office (for feeling uncomfortable?!?) and that my insurance would not cover. And at that point I had so much anxiety (I suffer from anxiety and severe ptsd)that I told them to charge whatever they needed to just so I could get out of her office. She’s unethical and inappropriate- both as a doctor and a woman.

I stopped going to Dr. Dadgar because she wanted me to start a treatment for PCOS that I found sketchy. Reason being, she wanted me to take her concoction of diabetic pills, which I didn't quite understand how this sort ofthing was never brought up by my primary doctor or any other OBGYN I've been to. I also, felt that this office was emptying my wallet. They had me come in for appointments due to a mix-up and they had in a lab and even for another pap smear because it wasn't done right. The pap smear was so quick and short, she didn't take the time to get to know me and I got the impression her "friendliness" was not genuine. Overall, I would not recommend this place at all!

I was scheduled online for An annual Pap test. I arrived and was asked to show ID and insurance card which is fine. What was not fine is they asked for copay payment upfront. I paid with my credit card andrealized I shouldn't pay for annual check up with my plan. Then the front desk was saying I might request some other procedure during the check up. I said to her" I won't. I am here just for annual check up ". Then she was on the phone for quite long talking to someone and mentioned me like some random person walked in for check up. I felt offended and this office were trying to overcharge patient as soon as you walked in. Then the doctor asked me to sign the consent for disclosure of my information which I didn't want to. Then she refused to see me anymore. Awful place. Don't go!

I went for my yearly check up (I have recently moved to the area and need a new obgyn). Dr. Dadgar was not thorough, and spent under 5 minutes on the annual exam. Also, I went in with concerns of ayeast infection. The Dr. said she did not think I had one. About a week later I received a call that I needed to come in to discuss "test results." I frantically made an appointment, had to pay another co-pay for my conversation with the Dr. to tell me that I did in fact have that infection. It was not a pleasant experience, and I'm lucky that there are many other OBgyn options in this area.

I'm so glad I found! She's addressing some critical issues I've been suffering with for a while that other gynocologists either haven't been able to or didn't have time to resolve for me. I've been needlessly having to be admitted tothe emergency room in the past for my issue. Doctor Dadger is very knowledgeable, caring, professional...I can't find enough positive adjectives to discribe her. Her office has many of the comprehensive tools/devices to examine me, so I haven't had to make appointments to go to other specialists to be tested. She's wonderful and I'd highly recommend her!!!

Dr Dadgar was clearly knowledgeable in her field, but had poor bedside manner. The wait time was quite long, but I was impressed with her intellect during the pre-exam discussion in her office. However, when the exam began, the Doctor askedme whether I had ever considered a labia reduction surgery, as I would be the perfect candidate. Additionally, the nurse asked me if I wanted to join the weight loss program. The exam was no more than 5 minutes and the Doctor promptly left. It should be noted that Dr Dadgar is interested in aesthetic medicine, and this may be why she thought it appropriate to mention my weight and the appearance of my labia, however I will not be going back.

I have been to this office numerous times over the last few months in order to get help with an issue. I was left feeling over charged with appointments being made that didn't need to be, rushed through each appointment Iwas at, waited for at least 40-50 minutes each time I was there, and still have more questions than answers about what the issue is... Bottom line, with all of the other great doctors in the area I wouldn't suggest going here unless you want to waste your time. (P.S. do a google search on the Dr.... you will find your answers there).

Worst GYN experience I have ever had and I absolutely will not be coming back. I was the first appointment of the day and got to the office 15 minutes early. I ended up waiting for 45 minutes and watched asthe doctor took 2 patients that came in after me. In the exam room the blinds were left open out into the parking lot. She was not gentle during the exam either. The most disconcerting part is that once the exam was over she told me she saw something and scheduled me for surgery. She did not explain anything to me at all and I ended up going to another GYN at a large hospital. This doctor said there was nothing there and I did not need surgery. I have no idea what she saw but I do not trust her judgement. I believe she will do surgery even when it is not necessary.
