Dr. Namazie is personable, intelligent, skilled, gives you his undivided attention, and has just the right amount humor. He adeptly problem solves. I saw him 3 years ago for another matter and when I had this situation, I knew just whereI felt comfortable going. His staff is efficient as well.

The Dr and the visit was great but they do not validate parking so beware because the the parking cashier does NOT take cash and you will have to go into the pharmacy ATM and be charged the fee.

Truly a pleasant experience. Dr. Namazie is friendly, kind and quite knowledgeable. He listens, provides options and allows time for you to process the info he has told you, so you can make the best decision. He also was very kindto inform me about costs of procedures prior to conducting them. Truly appreciated that. Even though I need surgery, I am at peace knowing Dr. Namazie will be my surgeon.

Dr. Namazie was great. Good professionalism and bedside manner. Seems to really care about the patient. His assistant who came in to ask questions seemed to be really nice as well. The only issue is the front desk seemed to beunengaged. They were borderline rude, one person in particular. Another person was on the phone on a personal call at the front desk while patients were waiting. The front and back office are like night and day.

Dr. Namazie was wonderful. Helpful, kind, informative, professional and very honest. His staff was exactly the same way. I was seen quickly, he had confident, clear responses to my questions and a clear treatment plan. His office made arrangementsfor follow up tests that were scheduled immediately, I am very glad I was referred to his office.

I thought the Dr. listened to my concerns and was very nice, but also caring. Because, let's face it, when you don't feel well, you want some care and he was that. He listened to my history, concerns and was reallyhelpful in discussing the approaches to getting better. I do wish the lab work I had could have a quicker turn around in this office. It is more than a 3 day wait to get results, so that was a bit strange to me. But I would definitely recommend him. Also, I arrived early and they brought me in quite quickly, which was a plus.

He is amazing . I never had a doctor to tell me things straight up , always makes jokes so you feel more comfortable with him . No one brothers you when you are talking to him all of his attentionis on you . He does everything that he can to figure out what is bothering you.

This was my first visit - short and sweet. Dr. Namazie had a great demeanor; friendly, courteous, and concerned that I had my questions fully answered. There was a structural abnormality, but he was fine with a 'wait and see' approach(no cancer danger, but we discussed it) - which was reassuring.
