Dr. Modiri was sweet and accommodating. I originally had my appointment set for 3, but called to see If I could be seen earlier. The office staff was so nice and said I could come in whenever I was ready. Thatwas a pleasant surprise. Dr. Modiri listened to all of my concerns and history and steps to start feeling better. I recommend her as it is already nerve wracking enough talking about gastrointestinal issues lol! She puts you at ease. Glad I found her through zocdoc.

She was very easy to talk with about my issue. She listened and was very attentive. It seemed like she really wanted to know what was going on with me. Not rushing to conclusions. Explained the many options available to mefor treatment, but then gave a through reason to why she was not going to some of the options. Very professional. Would recommend her!

She was great. However, I cannot get my labs drawn. I have called the office at least 20 times and I have not been able to get them to fax my labs over to the hospital. Very frustrating.

I do not like risking new physicians due to poor bedside manner, yet this young lady set a bar that I wish other physicians would strive for. I sensed genuine sincerity which all to often is rare.
