"Troubling Incorrect Diagnosis. During a visit at Riverside Hospital Dr. Gharanai Abdul Payind reviewed my patient history and put in my medical notes that my condition was "Possibly all psychosomatic (most likely)." Fast forward from September 2019 to October 2022 when I received the correct diagnosis by a qualified, caring doctor using bloodwork and clinical analysis confirming the exact disease I requested evaluation and testing during my hospitalization. That generic use of a label "psychosomatic" for any patient is very troubling to read especially in retrospect when there are physical symptoms finally proven to be caused by infection. My efforts to get help in that moment were trivialized and judged wrongly, and Dr. Payind put on record that my condition was likely in my head. I cannot recommend this doctor for missing my diagnosis and two more years of searching and difficulties."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
