Dr. Borhan deserves his ranking as one of the Top Doctors in Phoenix! He is not only personable and professional, but also very knowledgeable and a great communicator. He frequently asked me if I had any questions about what he had said, and patiently listened before answering, in a simple, straightforward manner, explaining his reasons for his treatment recommendations and making sure that I was comfortable before he left the room. He never appeared rushed, even though I know that he had a full waiting room for the afternoon.

I was expecting a long wait but was seen within 15 minutes of my scheduled appointment time. Dr. Borhan took the time to talk with me on my situation and answered all questions without minimizing any of my concerns. He also explained his treatment approach, displayed in-depth knowledge of the topic in question, and discussed possible alternatives beyond just standard drugs.

Dr. Ali is the best doctor I have ever had. It was my first visit with him, so I had to give him a rundown of my history. Usually, Doctors make me feel like I cant talk fast enough, and that they are simply just going through the motions. He was totally present in the moment, asked questions, he even related to me. He took his time in asking me about what my short and long term hopes were, in regards to my situation. He came up with a plan, that I felt like was in my best interest, and not just delivering a "canned response" at me. Or pushing a drug on me, because he is getting a kickback. I felt like for the first time, I found a doctor, that really was there to help me, and cared about me. It was beyond refreshing. I will recommend him to all of my friends. He is the kindest, most honest, and genuine Doctor I have ever met. If I lived out of town, maybe even a few hours out of state, I would continue to keep him as my Doctor. He is that good. Men look no further... This is the man you want to visit.

I was not at all pleased with my experience in the office of Dr. Borhan. I was in the waiting room 30 min past my appointment, and did not see the doctor until 50 min past. I did see the PA right away. When the doctor arrived, he quickly realized he was in the wrong room, adding another 20 min to my wait. When he finally arrived, I received no explanation and no apology. He brought in a second PA (I think), but did not introduce her. During our interaction, he appeared to be bored and was rushed and flippant, offering impish grins and remarks that I felt were intended for the benefit of the two PAs. He then launched into what he called ‘my little speech, which I have done a few thousand times’. The message to me was, roughly, ‘relax, everybody gets a PSA spike now and then’. I offered my 20-year record of personal PSA scores, which he shrugged off, saying that a little Cipro should fix it. I declined the Cipro, hoping the probable infection would subside on its own, but we did not discuss that. The two PAs stayed in the room for the digital exam, which is fine, but I would have appreciated him asking whether I minded. I asked at what point surgery would be advised, and I explained that I am extremely reluctant to do that, due to risk of incontinence and/or impotence. He was dismissive of that, saying something like ‘these days, with laser methods, the risk is minimal’. I pressed for clarification, and he said something like ‘complications are 2%, in general, but only 1% with him, because he’s the best’. He might be very good with surgery, but given my poor experience, I expect to cancel the follow-up appointment, and book with somebody else.

Dr Borhan himself is great. Office Staff is nice. I don't mind the wait. My only issue is with the billing department. If you have a credit, good look in getting it in a timely manner. I have been requesting my credit since May 2015 at which time they said 30 days, it is 7/28/2015. Outside of billing issues , the Dr himself is great.
