Askari Hojat called me for a "job" interview. He would not answer any questions about it, and just said that was at conference room at a hotel. He said he was a "doctor, " so in order to do some due diligence, I did an internet search on him. I found nothing of relevance.

I called him back and asked which state he was licensed in (since a medical license search came up empty.) His response was that it was "personal" and abruptly told me not to show up at the interview.

Now, that type of question is personal, and so is my time, my hopes, my dreams, my fears, and my faith. Askari Hojat's response was not typical of someone who has any respect, whatsoever.

It would seem that a reasonable opinion of Askari Hojat is that he is rude and unprofessional, and if you get asked for an interview from Askari Hojat -- you might want to think twice about wasting your time.

Face to face with Askari Hojat: (These times are tough for many. Maybe not for you.) Get a heart, or at least show you have one.

Dr. Hojat Askari is a Internal Medicine MD who started his practice a few years in Prescott and finishing his internship at Good Sam in Phoenix. He is one of the most ethical and caring doctors we've ever known and we find the review above to be inappropriate and inaccurate. We would highly recommend anyone to Dr. Askari!

this man changes his mind faster then you can do what he wants you to do...He is rude to all employees in front of all patients and be Little he's staff in front of patients he is very unprofessional as a person with his education...i completely agree with everything that was said in the comment above he picks and chooses the patients he gives his time too and the rest of his patients he has no time for or wants to leave early he tells them to come back in a couple days. I have witnessed his rudeness to his staff first hand makes them apologizes to patients to look like it was there fault but in actuality it was the his fault but makes him look good. He thinks women a beneath him and should jump when he whistles. calls his staff stupid, weak and they don't know there job (why are you here go home) he doesn't pay his staff for holidays and pays them horrible to put up with rudeness and disrespect from a PROFESSIONAL!!!

Ok, all of the above isn't making sense. Alot of rambling without much concrete detail. Just sounds like a disgruntled employee who vented on a review site and enlisted a couple of pals to do the same. There are other review sites that provide positive reviews of Dr Askara, far outnumbering the negativity offered above. If he truly is so rude to his employees, there's an appropriate PROFESSIONAL recourse to take. Calling Dr Askari unprofessional and then slandering him all over an internet review site is basically the pot calling the kettle black, don't you think? I remain neutral in my opinion of Dr Askari, had hoped to glean more insight from these reviews. But reviews like this are worthless. No meat. Just people shoot

Most of the previous complaints do not make sense. Sounds like a disgruntled employee venting on a review sit and got a couple of pals to do the same. Other review sites provide positive reviews of Dr Askara that seem counterbalance this kind of negativity. If he truly is so rude to his employees, there is an appropriate PROFESSIONAL recourse to take. Calling him unprofessional and then slandering him on an internet review site is like the pot calling the kettle black.

This Doctor is the WORST doctor I have EVER Seen!!! He did not listen and constantly interuppeted me when I was answering HIS questions! He charged me $80.00 for an office visit and did nothing for me. He took a urine sample and proceeded to tell me after the fact that I had to pay $50.00 for it upon exiting the building. I explained to him I did not have the money at the time and he LITERALLY yanked the perscription he did write for me out of my hand and told me that until I paid him $50.00 that he wouldnt let me have the perscription. I asked him why and that I just paid him $80.00 for nothing and he told me to go to a free clinic. I am a white clean mid aged woman and have worked hard ALL of my life!! I am flabbergasted at the way I was treated by him and I have been in tears all evening. I want to tell EVERYONE I can that this man IS RUDE and UNPROFESSIONAL!! I have NEVER been treated this way by any doctor!! He also treats his staff extremely bad in front of his own patients. He rushed through my appt. and ignored anything I had to say after paying him $80.00 in cash!!! DO NOT Give this man your time of day nor your money. He should not be practicing in the medical field!!! He has no heart and treated me like I was a piece of dirt. Karma will come back on you Hojat Askari!!! You're a cold hearted evil man!! I hope all the $$ is worth it because I am positive God is watching down on you and I am sure there is a special place in hell just for you!!!

Dr. Hojat Askari, MD, 3191 Stillwater Dr Suite B
Prescott, AZ 86305
I wanted to share with the local community of Prescott what kind of Dr and a man he is. This doctor is an alcoholic and a heavy Drug user. But worse is he is Rapist. He got me drunk and then raped me even when I told him I don’t want this and asked him to leave. Still he rapped me and left. Ladies be careful of being alone with him or his sick parties. I hope this rapist doctor is punished. He is rude to women and his office staff as I have been a witness of it myself.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Askari today and it was the most horrifying experience I’ve ever had with a doctor. Dr. Askari was an hour late, and showed up with bloodshot eyes. The room was very small and didn’t even have an exam table, just two chairs and the counter with a computer on it.

Dr. Askari sat next to me very casually and began asking me why I was there, and I had three separate issues to discuss with him. The first was just to get a prescription for a new inhaler, easy. The second issue was a pain in my ear that I’d had for the last month. He looked in my ear, then felt my jaw as I opened and closed my mouth, then told me I had TMJ and he could give me a shot of steroids and the pain would go away. No X-rays, no actual exam, just touched my jaw for about 10 seconds. I told him I was breastfeeding and asked if it was safe, to which he replied “Pretty much.” I laughed, and said “Pretty much? What does that mean?” And he said “Pretty much safe. It’s safe. And steroids don’t get into your breastmilk anyway. And if it did, it would be such a small amount it wouldn’t hurt the baby.”

I asked if there were side effects, he said no. I said “there are no side effects at all?” He said no, then said “well there are always some side effects”. Then I saw the nurse, who had her back to me the whole time, had a giant needle out ready to give me this shot already! I asked if we could slow down b/c I had some more questions, and she yes and backed off immediately. I turned back to Dr. Askari and asked again, “so what are the potential side effects?” This is where it really took a turn. He sat back in his chair w/ his legs crossed looking at his hands and said extremely rudely, ‘Six times. Six times. You’ve asked me this question six times already. I’ve already told you there were no side effects. Do not ask the same question over and over again. I don’t have time for this. I’m very busy.”

I was shocked. I reached for my purse and said “I’m sorry to have wasted your time then.” I stood up as he said “You did, you did waste my time.” I said “Are you serious? This is unbelievable. This is the rudest I’ve ever been treated by a doctor in my life”. He sat there with a smirk on his face saying “Goodbye.” The nurse kept her back to me just facing the computer. She never said a word, and I could see the side of her face as I walked out, staring down w/ her eyes closed. Like she’d definitely seen him act like this toward other patients before. I left the room slamming the door behind me, then walked right out the door yelling that he was the most atrocious doctor.

I was so upset I was shaking. I called my husband in the parking lot and yelled to two people walking into the doctor’s office that Dr. Askari should have his license taken away. I’m contacting the State Medical Board, the Better Business Bureau and the AMA to file formal complaints against him. I will do everything in my power to make sure this “doctor” doesn’t treat anyone else like this.

I have been Dr. Askari's patient for around 6 years since right after he opened Thumb Butte Medical Center. He has always been neat and Professional.I am a middle aged white woman who is on Medicare and have never had any problems with hm. In fact he saved my hand after going to an incompetent er doctor. I had an abscess on my left wrist that he lanced that had enough infection to fill a one cup measuring cup plus. He lanced it, put a compression bandage on it . I went back in the next day and he lanced it again but it was full of not only infection but blood. He told me to go to JC Lincoln er and ask for a vascular surgeon because he was afraid the veins and arteries had been compromised. He then proceeded to give my husband his personal cell phone number and said if we had any problems to have them call him. My husband then told him we would wait a day before going down there and Dr. Askari had no problems with our decision. He has never berated us for any of our decisions.
If I need a specialist He has no problem referring me to them If I need a medication they will fight for me to get it. Several of his employees have been with him for a very long time. He has always been caring and compassionate.

He is the worst doctor ever. I always wait an hour to see him and he won't spend more than two minutes in the room with me and doesn't listen to any of my concerns. All he wants is for me to go in every week or two so he can get more money.
