I asked for the iced pack they used on me after my biopsy, I was told it will be recycled for the next patient in presence of the doctor . They could have asked for few dollars to even to sell it to me . I showed up at my kids school and some kind Secretary saw my neck swelled up she went and got one iced pack from the school fridge for me. Doing little things make a huge difference for the patients you treat.

Doctor Ahmadian was the third specialist (after neurologist and cardiologist) that I saw for the problem of trembling fingers when I tried to pick something up. Very quickly she identified this as a symptom of thyroid imbalance, and prescribed appropriate medication. She explained the condition and the expected effect of the medication and answered all my questions. She also scheduled an ultrasound to identify the number and size of nodules in my thyroid, and then a biopsy of the largest nodule to check for the possibility of cancer. After the biopsy (which indicated no cancer), she explained that a single biopsy might not show cancer if the needle if another nodule that had the problem, but that the probability of a false negative was low. With a hyperthyroid condition, the amount of the medication required must be verified quarterly. Medication is not the best long term solution for hyperthyroid. She outlined my options, explaining each one. When I procrastinated, she encouraged me to make a decision. Since only one lobe of my thyroid had "hot" nodules, I took the option of having only that one lobe removed. (The other two options would have meant that the thyroid no longer functioned, and I'd have to take daily pills, though this situation means that the level of meds does not have to be adjusted, since the thyroid production is always zero.) I had the surgery done by a surgeon I already knew and trusted, and at my first post op meeting with Dr. Ahmadian, the test showed optimal results: my remaining lobe was producing a good level of the necessary hormone. I would recommend Dr. Ahmadian for anyone with hyper or hypo thyroidism, or for anyone looking for an endocrinologist.
October 31st, 2013Totally shocked
I have been a patient here for many years. This Dr. was fine for my simple issue. However, after a long history here, I questioned the receptionist over the phone regarding the switch of my medication. She needed to consult with the Dr. After several days and no call call back, I had to reach out to her. The receptionist said no problem stay on your current dose. 5 days later I received a nasty letter in the mail, stating I should promptly leave this office and find a new Dr. that I had no respect for the Dr.'s advice. Not once did I speak to the Dr. Apparently questioning your health at this clinic is frowned upon. I called to ask about this letter and of course no call back. I wish I could say the conversation included yelling, swearing and degrading the Dr and her intelligence, but it was void of that behavior. Good luck here, just leave your brain at the door. She is a private practice so the hospital is not an alternative to questioning what she is thinking. Although the hospital did advise a PCP is capable of handling simple thyroid issues.

October 11th, 2012Best Doctor I ever had
October 2nd, 2012dont go to her unless you knoe its your throid
waited over a month for this appointment. I had 2 of the ladys from the front call me and verify my insurance, one accused me of lying and said you have to use your primamry first.(obviously i already had the other checked with the booker). After being seen she did a once over, sent me out to get my throid checked(which i told her was just checked and was normal)and sent me on my way. When i called to make another appointment they said follow up with your primary care. Ps my primamry care refered me to her for help! I still feel so horrible to this day. She does not want to work to hard to help you feel better.
