Very friendly doctor. Easy to talk to. Accurate with my diagnosis. Their office is small, so wait can be longer than actual appointment time, but otherwise a pleasant experience.

I am new to the area and found this Doctor on ZocDoc. When I got to the office there was no one at the front desk. I waited 10 mins before I started saying hello? Finally someone came out. The womenat the front desk was very sweet but I was a little annoyed I waited 10 mins before signing in as I had to get to work. When the Doctor saw me he was frantic about some paperwork he had to get done. He was taking calls on his cell phone during my consultation on top of leaving the room to go eat and then coming back and chewing in my face. I had blood taken so I had to go back to get my results where I waited an hour. When I was seen the doctor didn't remember me and was asking who I was and why I was there even though I saw him last week. He didn't even look at the results before I came in but start to look over them while I was in the room. He rushed through the paper work and sent me on my way. I found out I needed B12 shots from the blood test and he said he sent in the prescription. When I went to pick it up the pharmacy didn't have anything. What pushed me over the line and made me want to write an review was today when I got a call from their office saying the Doctor has my blood results and wants to go over them with me, when I went a week ago!!! Super unorganized, messy, frantic office. I do not recommend.

Dr. Heshmat clearly loves his job, and is very friendly. He truly cares about getting to the root cause of the problem and makes sure you get all questions answered. The only problem with my appointment is that he has NPstudents working for him that significantly extended the time of my appointment. My appointment took nearly 2 hours (this did include lab work, but the lab work only took about 15 minutes).
