I met Dr. Minasian during pre-admission testing for an upcoming surgery I was having. He was kind and very thorough with his exam and any questions I had. I had my surgery and 2 weeks later I developed pulmonary embolisms and almost died. That man saved my life!!! He visited me EVERY day while I was in ICU and was amazing with helping me threw every bump in the road. I decided after my experience with him at the hospital to continue my everyday care with him and I am not disappointed. He answers all of my questions and does not give medications with reason or explanation. I will be switching my entire family to his practice. BEST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER HAD!
The wait time every time I visit this office is over a hour. I only return because he's a good doctor but at this rate I will be finding someone else. I also had to tell the nurse the bathroom needed some attention. Not sure when the last time it was cleaned from the ring around the toilet. She seemed a little upset because I told her it needed some attention.
Was upset about an specialist recommendation not to put me on antidepressants, which he wasn't treating me for depression . Slam the files down. I heard him talking to his assistances outside the rooms about my situation. They were laughing because he was so upset. So if I could hear, all could hear. Made me feel so uneasy. He has a habit of talking down to one of his assistance. I have so many medications that I have bought for nothing. I have sat in the waiting room and examination for up to 3 hours. Follow ups never happen. I never get a call about any of my test or that I should get my blood work done.
I went to Minasian for 5 years and initally was satisfied but as time went on and he moved into his own office my care deteriorated. I frequently had to wait 2 plus hours for my appt, and having diabetes I have to go frequently he often changed medications on me without letting me know, he had me on so many drugs and some of them were not good together and some were known for kidney damage and not recommended for diabetic. The last straw was when went for a flu shot at a local clinic and they informed me that my blood pressure was high and should be checked by my dr. I had been having a headache for a day or so so i called and they said to come right in. My blood pressure was fine but he wanted to prescribe a medication for migraines well it is actually for people with epiliepsy but is sometimes prescribed for chornic migrains ( i do not have chronic migraines) After reading the side effects i decided that my misgivngs were founded, and found a wonderful Dr who spent 3 months weaning me off all the drugs He was astounded at what I was on. I now have better control over my bood sugars take half the medications and am usually in and out within an hour or so. Also i do not know what the problem was in his office buthis office staff was frequently fighting amongst themselves and his PA was in tears several times when I went.
