Dr. Akhavan did a great job on our son's circumcision!

We loved our experience with Dr. Akhavan. He was patient, knowledgable, reassuring, and highly competent. We really appreciated how accessible he was after the visit as well. We highly recommend him.

Dr. Akhavan did our son's circumcision in the office. We were really nervous, as the hospital had told us we couldn't get a circumcision until he was older and had to go to the operating room. The experience was very quick and circumcision looks really good.

I will take care of your child" was Dr Akhavans promise from the first day we met him. He performed robotic surgery on our daughter and fixed her urinary reflux. His bedside manner is excellent and when he talks to you, he looks you in the eye and more importantly he is engaging to his little patients. He is always accessible and more than willing to answer any concerns or questions over email. He is the best.

We were very impressed with our experience. Dr. Akhavan went above and beyond to help explain our son’s condition and treatment. We were very nervous about our son undergoing anesthesia, but Dr. Akhavan allayed our concerns and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Highly recommended.

Experience with the doctor was okay, but his reception and billing staff are comically bad. Long waits, poor interpersonal skills, and got stuck with a $300 bill that we should not have had to pay, but gave up after pursuing it for over a year. Would find a different doctor for these reasons.

30+ minutes late. Definitely broke HIPAA discussing procedures IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WAITING ROOM (I literally overheard the nurse talking about a procedure with another patient). At the end of the procedure, they dropped off my baby in the waiting room and just left - I was the only one in the entire department for 15+ minutes while he was just screaming in pain - no receptionists, no nurses, no doctors, all the other patients had finished their visits and left. Couldn't find a nurse or anyone to help the entire time. Just me with a screaming baby who was clearly in pain after his procedure, but literally no support beyond that. They just wanted to go home and didn't care about their last patient of the day. We're probably switching to a different pediatrician simply because our last one referred us to Akhavan. His office was that bad.
