I first met Dr. Soufer at the St. Joseph Medical Center in September 2018. He showed a true compassion, deepest knowledgeand wisdom in his professional care for me. Upon discharge from the hospital after an 8 day stay, I decided to change my former PCP to Dr. Soufer. I was excited to learn that he will accept me into his practice, because not every family physician would, due to a long and complicated med history in the past. He is always available to answer questions, very concerned and sincerely involved with his patients. I highly recommend this professional to others !!!

This visit couldn't have been easier or more pleasant. I arrived for my appointment, reviewed my personal info, and was call in within just a few minutes. Dr. Soufer was super friendly and helpful. Can't say I'm looking forward to mynext appointment, but will definitely go back to him.

They did not even fill my prescription, and they are closed from Fri-Sun so I must go 5 days without my medication. I had to rush to urgent care to obtain my prescription. Will not be returning - absolutely terrible. Life threatening even. Absent minded office - avoid.

He really listened to everything I mentioned. I thought that each thing was unrelated, but because he was attentive to everything, he was able to explain how it was all connected. He was quick, thorough and very caring for my overallhealth and well being. Looking forward to conquering some health issues I’ve been ignoring.

My visit with behzad Soufe was good but he gave me a list of labs. And said I don’t have to make an appointment, just walk in. I went there early so I can get to my work. And After Iwent to one of the locations that was on the list, wasted 45 mins of my time, and there was no lab, I asked and they said it was closed a year ago. So basically the doctor has unupdated list and a lab was closed a year ago and he didn’t know about it and referring his clients to it .. very disappointed

The office is not a show place, and you have to pay to park, but Dr. Soufer is terrific! He always listens and has very good professional advice and considers you as a person--not just a headache or heart issue--to throwa pill toward. He is also great at explaining WHY he is recommending treatment. He has also made referrals to specialists who are top-notch and treat patients as they would want to be treated.

The wait wasn't too bad, maybe a half an hour off schedule. As a "new patient" I wasn't able to get a full physical which was what I made the appt. for. Dr. Soufer and his intern were very nice, heeven recommended a specialty doctor for something else I needed. So word to the wise new patients, do not expect a physical examination on your first visit.

Doctor was great. He was very helpful and explained everything so I would understand. I was a bit disappointed about the wait and wish that the staff would have better explained what was going on to me or called me priorto my appointment. However Dr. Soufer (as well as the staff) profusely apologized and explained it was because of an emergency. His professionalism during the appointment made up for this so I will definitely stay with this office.

I was my first time experience in Dr Soufer's office. The front desk lady had called and asked to come 30 min earlier, and eventually it was the time I waited in the office. It is the only little complain, nobig deal. All people I met in the office were very pleasant and attentive, as well as the doctor. Doctor Soufer seems knowledgable and curious about the way he can help the patient. I'm looking forward keeping him as my primary physician for years.
