Doesn't know who he's treating

Dr. Tabatabai does not know who his patients are nor what their level of care is or should be. Besides Dr. Tabatabai's medical practice he makes other money at nursing facilities in the County. In his main practice and at the other facilities he rarely knows who his patients are and what is in their medical file. He blindly approves and signs off on progress notes; when he's questioned about a specific patient he has, on numerous occasions, stated he/she 'is not a patient of mine.' Dr. Tabatabai is only in the business to make money and does not provide a level of care that is expected of medical professionals such as him. Dr. Tabatabai should not be practicing medicine, he's a disaster waiting to happen.

Emergency Responder

Dr. Tabatabai is an extremely professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and detail-oriented physician. Further, he explains issues so they are easily understandable. Moreover, he is an exceptional communicator with a comfortable bedside manner. Additionally, his office people are just wonderful, thoughtful, and pleasant. They always call to remind of an appointment, and they call back to follow up on tests and results. I am new to the area, and consider myself fortunate to have found him.
