Oblivious and uncaring
Self-verified patient of Dr. Shahab Attarchi - Posted on February 16th, 2011
"Dr" Attarchi was the attending physician for my dad for over a month, while he was recovering from complications from hip replacement surgery at West Hills hospital. He was rarely to be found and, when he was around, showed next to no knowledge of my father's condition. He even put incorrect information on the death certificate. While he was in no way responsible for my dad's death, he certainly didn't go out of his way to do much for his care either. Thankfully the hospital's other doctors and nursing staff are much better people.
Worst Doctor I Ever Met
Self-verified patient of Dr. Shahab Attarchi - Posted on November 12th, 2010
Dr. Attarchi was the doctor assigned to my mother at West Hills Hospital. For 2 1/2 weeks he told us he would be in contact with her primary care physician who did not have privileges at the hospital. He never did. He was terrible about returning our calls. The only time he called me at home in 2 1/2 weeks, he called at 10 pm. He did not check my mother's medical history. He did not do the diagnostic procedures that were necessary. He superficially treated my mother's symptoms without trying to find out the cause. He released her even though the nephrologist at West Hills Hosp felt she should not be discharged. He is a dangerous doctor. Stay away from him if you can.
