She was very kind, patient and knowledgeable. Explained everything thoroughly in ways that were easy to understand. I look forward to continue being treated by her. Despite the painful reason that brought me to the office, the experience wasas good as it could be. The rest of the staff that I interacted with were a pleasure as well and helped me to feel at ease.

I visited Dr. Bezhani because I was experiencing pain in the sole of the foot, plantar fasciitis. I rated my pain after a long day of walking a 6/10. Her recommendation for me was daily exercises at home as well asa steroid injection which seemed to me as a very aggressive treatment for my condition and level of discomfort. When I asked for other alternatives she named a few, seemingly quite annoyed that I would not take her initial recommendation. She lastly recommended physical therapy but did not seem enthusiastic about the less invasive, but perhaps more time consuming (on her part) recommendation. I did not return for my follow-up as I found her bedside manner also to be cold. I told her I would not move forward with a steroid injection.

I thought her staff was robotic and unprofessional. You don’t want the same service you get from a fast food restaurant at a doctors office. So while overall the visit with the Doctor was okay/average...I would not return or recommend a friend here.
