Dr. Hafezi, pain management and rehabilitation physician, chose to go into his area of medicine so he could make a meaningful difference in the lives of patients. Dr. Hafezi says the natural complement between physician medicine and pain management lets him establish treatment plans “not just to address patient symptoms, but to help them be more active, independent and productive. I like it when I can help my patients have a better quality of life,” he explains.

This was an amazing appointment.Dr.Hafezi asked such important questions and tested, which provided a very different diagnosis.
July 24, 2018
I just met Dr. Hafezi, maybe on my next appointment I may be able to answer this question.
July 23, 2018
Dr Hafezi is a nice guy, but the wait times are painful.
July 02, 2018
Find a different doctor if u work and can’t meet there last appt. at 3:15pm. They will try and push u to the PA (physician assistant). When ur copay is 50 dollars I don’t think u would want to see the physician assistant.

I appreciated that he gave me a complete understanding of my condition and options. Although the wait was long, the service was excellent.
June 12, 2018
This was an excellent experience. A Resident was shadowing Dr. Hafezi the day of my appointment. It is terrific to see instruction, explanation, and mentoring shared with the new Doctors coming in. Dr. Hafezi insured he completed all testing which had been requested on the referral. He was professional, appropriately welcoming and friendly to me. I could not have asked for a better experience or treatment.

January 16, 2018
How well things went
January 09, 2018
Read the medical history and focus on the patient, you see several patients in one day, that is the field you chose to work on. It was a one time experience with you, and not sure you really cared or focused on MY health issues.
January 08, 2018
Visit was brief and fairly quick. Had to wait weeks for this, my only concern.
December 20, 2017
This is a doctor who is pleasant to talk to and will answer all your questions.
December 14, 2017
He was great easy to understand friendly and listened
December 11, 2017
Dr is honest and sincere thinks of the patients needs and not his paycheck. If your insurance company will pay for PIH Services it's to your advantage to switch over to PIH WHITTIER Not Downey facility....

I feel the doctor has a good handle on my problem. I can only hope that his strategy works for me.

The overall experience with this provider was positive. I like being able to check-in on-line. Also no waiting or additional paperwork was needed once I arrived. The provider was able to explain clearly the issue discovered.

It took 3 weeks to get a nerve conduction study
September 22, 2017
Yes of course
September 22, 2017
Provider is excellent. I had a sense Dr. Hafezi was also very good but quick and only gave me basic info. My issue is with the nurses with family members in the waiting area. I was kept longer than usual because my BP was too high. My cousin was waiting and waiting and no one was giving her any info on me and they did not attempt to check my status for her. It was very traumatic for her. She was very upset not knowing anything. Nor would they let her go back and check. Other patients had family members there afterwards.
September 14, 2017
He is an understanding and knowledgeable professional.
September 13, 2017
Have seen him on and off for 10 years to help keep my pain management under control. Recently went to two other doctors closer to my home but ended up going back to him and PIH Whittier where I know my life is in good hands
