I have been a patient at this office for almost 2 years. It is very convenient for me location-wise and since I have 3 kids there is always some reason to see a pediatrician. At my last visit I came with my 1,5 year-old daughter, who has been showing a lot of discomfort and crying in a lot of pain. When Dr. Behmanesh saw her he looked at her ears and said that she had a double ear-infection. Two weeks prior to this latest visit she had an antibiotic prescribed for an ear-infection, which I thought we cured. I also mentioned to Dr. Behmanesh that I could smell some infection in her mouth and wanted him to take a look. He just said that the antibiotic should take care of everything. I took the prescription and left. The same morning I had to see my doctor for a check-up, who happens to be a family doctor plus a pediatrician. Since my daughter was in so much pain I wanted to confirm that the medication prescribed was strong enough so I asked my doctor for a second opinion. He looked in her ears and said that she had no ear infection in either of her ears. I was stunned and was not sure whose opinion to trust. So the following day I asked to see a third pediatrician, who also confirmed that both of her ears were crystal clear! It turned out that she was suffering from the "foot, mouth and hand infection" which is why she was in so much discomfort. If Dr. Behmanesh would spend sufficient time with his patient perhaps he would find the real cause. He chose to ignore my request to look in her mouth, he barely spent 2 minutes of his time after I was in the waiting room for almost 1 hour and he gave me a completely wrong diagnosis. Unfortunately I cannot trust him at this point and I feel that it is important to let other parents know to be cautious with this doctor since he does not make accurate decisions. I am very disappointed and hope that he will treat his patients with more attention from now on. Of course after my experience I changed the doctor immediately. Now it takes me 20 minutes to get to my new pediatrician's office but from this experience I learned that it does not matter. We trust our doctors with our lives and our children's lives so they should be extra careful.

Well, I've been taking my son off and on to Dr. Behmanesh since he was born, I really like both Dr. Behzad and Dr. Behmanesh, but those front desk receptionists are horrible at making you feel welcome, I've never seen one of them smile. That is why I would go to another Dr.'s office.
Maybe some customer service training, or an attitude change would help these girls out.

Pros: Both Doctors are friendly and don't try to rush you out...

Cons: Girls up in the front

I like Dr. Behmanesh. He received my sons when they were born. He is always helpful and offers up information. His receptionist are moody and sometimes unprofessional. The answering message is never changed to reflect Jewish holidays or hours or vacation, etc. Plenty of times I've found out the hard way. I show up and the door is locked with no note. One time, there was a note, but it was written with yellow hi lighter. This is unacceptable. Hours should be posted and announced on the answering message, especially since kids get sick without notice. The Doctor is GREAT. The receptionist is NOT.

Dr. Behmanesh received my two children in the hospital and he continues to be their pediatrician. Very amicable, takes his time, always asks if you have any questions. Nurses are ok, receptionist is sometimes moody but I guess that's normal if you hear children cry 9-5. You have to pay to park in the building's garage.

PROS: Great doctor
CONS: Parking
