Geneticists are doctors with expertise in genetic or hereditary disorders. Many of the diseases we get are inherited, or passed on through the genes of our biological parents. These specialists study the biology behind a genetic disorder's origin, the traits that it presents in a patient and its pathway. This allows them to diagnose and treat each illness effectively.

During my last pregnancy they still order some unnecessary medicines for me after my baby born 6 month , this dr made me think Iam high risk , so I have to see him twice a week, did a lot of unnecessary tests . They just want you or your insurance pay more and plus you have to wait 1---4 hours for your appointment
I have experienced Dr Karimi as being disrespectful towards me and my time. When I first went to his office and saw the long wait (1-4 hours) and I thought they pointed to bad office management. But my last appointment showed its much worse. At my last appointment, I had to wait an hour because Karimi was late. After the ultra sound, I was left alone waiting about 20 min on my back with ultrasound gel still on my belly which was painful since I was 37 weeks pregnant. When the Dr. came in the room, Dr Karimi was talking to the ultrasound technician about a journal article instead of the ultrasound results or my care. When Dr. Karimi was done looking at the ultrasound, he continued to talk to some more to the ultrasound technician about how to cite a journal article ignoring my presence on the table. When I asked if I was done, Dr. Karimi asked for an NST (Fetal Non-Stress Test). In a previous appt, we had agreed that I didn't need an NST. I refused an NST because it would have involved waiting another hour and my OB had already agreed it's unnecessary. I can't help but wonder if Dr. Karimi just wants to see as many patients and do as many procedures as possible just to make as much money as possible instead of caring for patients. From my experience, Dr. Karimi is more in to quantity of patient number rather than quality care for the patients. If you don't mind being treated like a number, and being taken for granted... Dr. Karimi is your doctor.
Dr. Karimi was assigned to me by my insurance as my at risk dr. I regret ever going to him. The minute I walked into the office I saw many red flags: Long Wait times (at least an hour), uncomfprtable chairs, and a rude staff. Dr. Karimi gave me unecessary medicine. I was prescribed antibiotics as a precaution, just in case I had an infection (what kind of dr. does that?) My primary OBGYN told me that I would experience more streching pains than usual since i was carrying twins, but Dr. Karimi said I was contracting and gave me magnesium oxide, procardia, toradol. My gut told me to run, but I didn't. He insisted that I get the cerclage after i went to the hospital for a bad pain I was expereincing. However, after doing research and seeing that it should only be done for a shortened or opened cervix, I said no. He did not discharge me and instead I felt pressured by the hospital staff to go ahead with the procedure. After getting the cerclage I went into full on labor at 20 weeks! I had to take morphin to stop the labor! Every time I went to my appointments I felt uneasy. My babies ended up coming early 31 weekers. They are fine now, but I always wonder: "What if I had seen a more competent AT RISK dr?" I doubt I would have had to expose my self or my babies to all those unnecessary drugs and the cerclage surgery. I hate to say it, but Dr. Karimi does give cerclages to anyone he can. I often heard him telling other worried moms they would have to have one and scheduling them with nurses in the hall way. Choose a different Dr. Please!
I agree with everyone on here. AVOID THIS DOCTOR!! seriously he has made my whole pregnancy a nightmare. I first came for my 1st trimester screening and bc I'm high risk but since day one he made me feel like there was something wrong with my baby. At 20 weeks he had me run blood test & turns out i had some bacteria that could affect my baby and that alot if things can go wrong withy baby so I was pretty much pressured into taking an amnio and he told me he would try to get the results fast b4 the 24 wks and he said & I quote "after the results you can decide if you want up keep him or not" this was the longest conversation I ever had with him, he NEVER talks to you ... I was dumb to keep coming to his office I'm a first timer so if you get referred here RUN DO NOT LET ThiS DOCTOR SEE YOU! He prescribes alot of medicine, he doesn't ever make you feel good about your baby, he doesn't talk to you and the nurses are the same! The waiting time is horrible also.
