Verified Patient Reviews
Its always a pleasure, she is extremely professional, and very through. She makes me feel very comfortable, and addresses all my concerns
Dr Forouzesh is extremely professional and helpful.
Everything was great except the co-pay had to be paid with cash or a check, besides that this place was great!
Very thorough, deliberate and detail oriented. Spent a lot of time with me to develop a solid short and long-tern strategy for my healthcare.
She’s ok .. not impressed...
Dr. Forouzesh was very helpful and professional. Please not that she does not accept credit cards - be sure to have check or cash on hand.
Today I had my 1st visit with her for my Annual Checkup. Everything went very well and I will be coming back next week to go through the results. She listens, gives you enough time for you to explain and gives you her opinions in a very kind way. It is rare to find a doctor that is kind, makes jokes and is not rushing you out the door the second you arrive.
It's a pleasure to have a doctor that listens to you and is willing to discuss the case plan
Dr. Forouzesh is very nice. She is willing to listen patiently to your problems and provide some useful suggestions.
Very thorough and considerate about my concerns and made me feel completely at ease with her expertise
It was excellent. I would highly recommend.
She is very through, always answers any questions in full detail
Great doctor, caring and professional but the "cash only" form of payment is not convenient for everyone.
I met with Dr. Avisheh Forouzesh early last year and she was very patient, meticulous, and thorough in the check up. Hence I scheduled an appointment this year. This time the office called to tell me that the original time slot I had booked, although confirmed, was taken so I would have to reschedule. They gave ample notice so I had no issues and gladly rescheduled on Zoc Doc. When it was the day of the rescheduled appointment, I received a call from the office 10 minutes before the appointment that the doctor had a family emergency and would not be able to see me. This was understandable as well so I went ahead and rescheduled for the following week. When it came to this second rescheduled appointment, I arrived on time. I waited about 10 minutes in the waiting room and then the assistant told me that the doctor was on the way and would arrive in about 10 minutes. I then proceeded to wait another 25 minutes (at this point I had waited 35 minutes) but she had not arrived yet. I had no idea how much longer I had to wait and I had to get to work so I stepped out without being seen. When I called back to let the office know I had to leave the doctor did apologize but at this point it was the 3rd appointment I had tried with her and could not trust the inconsistency anymore.
She was very nice, very through and listened to me. She made me feel very comfortable and relax.
Dr. Forouzesh is amazing. She was really quick with meeting me and was very helpful and sent me to referred doctors quickly. She also has a great sense of humor and makes you feel very comfortable while in the office. Definitely recommend her!
Great doctor! Knowledgeable and understanding!
Very good doctor
I was VERY pleased at my Initial visit with Dr. F. She was GREAT ??. I thought she was extremely thorough and a well informed physician who left me feeling assured I made the right choice on ZOCDOC ??. Her office location is conveniently located next to labs and the hospital should you ever need anything done which is AMAZING. Dr. Forouzesh follows up and keeps you in the loop about your HEALTH which is just a PRIME EXAMPLE of why I am happy I found her on ZOCDOC. That alone is rare!!!
Yes, sure! Thinking of making her our family GP
Excellent visit. Just need a credit card machine so I can use my FSA instead of cash.
Very thorough and caring. I love how if you have an issue - she will call you right back and take time on phone to thoroughly understand your situation.
Great doctor to work with!!!
Pleasant doctor, but a bit dismissive. I explained my uncomfortable condition, but received nothing looks wrong response for cold-like symptoms. Maybe miscommunication on the doctor's part, but it made me feel awkward walking out.
My interaction with the doctor was ok. However, the waiting area was very run-down: paint falling off the walls, water spots on the carpet. It wasn't a welcoming and clean doctor's office experience. Also, payment has to be in cash or personal check. No credit cards accepted!
Couldn't believe the office I stepped into, rusty medical cabinet, she couldn't download my ZocDoc file because she was using a 10lb laptop and the office was generally unclean. After I sit down with her she gives me advice on calming down because I was sick and edgy and then after the visit she starts to lecture me about her holistic approaches to medicine. I thought I was in the third world.
I thought Dr. Forouzesh was kind and very professional. She genuinely listens to and cares for her patients.
She's always wonderful! She's very friendly and addresses your concerns. I recommend her to anyone who needs to see a doctor!
I thought she was a great doctor. Her medical assistant was on leave so she was doing all the work. The office was clean. The only issue I had was that I was recommended to her for a simple physical however I didn't realize that she was a specialist therefore I had to pay my specialist copay instead of a regular visit copay. But overall great experience. Note - they do not draw blood at this office and will send you to an outside lab.
EXCELLENT in every aspect of the word.....very professional, caring, and a good listener. She takes the time to talk to you and explains everything thoroughly. I would definitely recommend her in a heartbeat :)
Very attentive and thorough
Dr. Forouzesh was very friendly and knowledgable, and I would definitely go back to see her again if need be.
Skillful, professional, compassionate. I found Dr. Forouzesh of enormous talent and I will be going back to her!
Dr Avisheh was very accommodating and considerate of my needs. I would recommend her to anyone.
She's very attentive and really seems to care. Takes her time and is genuinely concerned about your well being.
Dr Forouzesh was wonderful- very thorough, knew exactly what she was talking about, and was very easy to talk to- which in my opinion is a necessity with a doctor. Plan to keep her as my primary doctor and would recommend her to anyone!
I appreciate that Dr. Forouzesh did not see dollars signs when I came to her office and run needless tests. And she was very reassuring.
