Insensitive Doctor and Staff

Horrible, I repeat HORRIBLE experience. I had an emergency situation that required contacting Dr. Kashefi for an appointment as soon as possible. I called the office and she was on lunch so I left a message stating that it was an urgent situation. Three hours later there was no call back. I ended up calling them again and the staff was extremely rude and told me that Dr. Kashefi was busy and couldn't see me for a couple of days. They did not even want to hear about my situation and were giving me attitude when I asked if there was anyway I could speak to her. They passed me along to a different receptionist who was awful. She was giving me attitude about how loud my phone was and kept repeating herself rudely after I had answered her questions. I started complaining to her about the horrible service I was receiving during this pressing and stressful situation and she gave me attitude and then HUNG UP ON ME. This was seriously the WORST, ABSOLUTELY WORST experience I have had. I ended up calling a different urologist at Pomerado who was friendly and got me in for an appointment right away. Stay away from this doctor and her staff at all costs.

One Star

I would not recommend this urologist. She had a sarcastic, arrogant demeanor, especially when I attempted to have a real discussion with her about the source of my symptoms and have input about what diagnostic testing I could tolerate. She actually mocked me to my face in front of my husband when I inquired about sedation for a cystoscopy. Thankfully, I followed an extremely stricter IC diet than she proposed and delayed having the cystoscopy until I felt less inflamed and ready. And I insisted on sedation, which was definitely necessary in my case. If I ever have a flareup, I will be looking to an empathic doctor who respects her/his patients' input.

Fantastic Urologist

Dr Kashefi is an amazing urologist. Went to her for my kidney stones and she has the best bedside manner and attitude. Been to other urologists and they were no where close to her.

A Bad Apple

This doctor definitely has issues. She is snotty, she is rude, she is late, she has herself up an a pedestle and all of this applies to her staff too. If she is nice/ service oriented etc. it no doubt is very difficult for her. I don't say this lightly but, she should probably get some therapy. As far as the glowing reviews goes, they had to have been posted by her or her friends.
