The entire appointment process from beginning to end was seamless, smooth, and efficient. I was able to book an appointmentas a new patient for a visit with the doctor the following day. I received a reminder text via ZocDoc the morning of the visit, and once arriving at the doctor's office I was called into an exam room within 10 minutes by Dr. Danesh himself. I met with him a few minutes before seeing his fellow, who examined me for my knee pain. They worked together to determine the best plan for my care, thoroughly explaining and answering my questions. After the appointment, I was able to easily schedule a follow up. I would certainly recommend this physician and practice to anyone looking for pain management care.

Everyone was professional and positive. Dr. Danesh is approachable and thorough. I went for an X-ray immediately for a chronic problem and expect to start physical therapy next week. I am grateful.

Dr. Danesh is extremely compassionate and thorough. He tailored a comprehensive treatment plan for me and made me feel confident in my recovery when other doctors could not. He followed up promptly with my physician and with me. Couldn't recommend a doctor more highly.

I am very happy to meet Dr. Danesh. He has excellent bedside manner and he took his time to listen to my numerous complaints and frustration on a chronic condition I've been suffering since the beginning of this year. I left the office feeling very hopeful with his treatment plan.

I left with a clear understanding of my spinal issues and future direction. Honest, direct answers after thorough exam. Ten out of ten (not on the pain scale).

It was very good. We finally have a diagnosis for my knee problem, and a good, conservative approach to correct the issue.

It was a quick visit in which he determined I had a detatched ligament or two in my knee, and then sent me to radiology. We meet again tomorrow.
