Dr. Moghimi was recommended by my daughter-in-law who is a physical therapist. She said several of her patients really liked him. I concur; he was very personable and professional. I will be seeing him often as we explore next steps for a life with less pain and more mobility.

I arrived for my appointment around 40 minutes early, and was pleasantly surprised when I was taken in to the exam room around 15 minutes prior to my scheduled appointment. That said, I was waiting in the exam room for around25 minutes before Dr. M came in to speak with me. The appointment felt very rushed and I don't feel as though I was able to describe my pain/injuries in full detail. All I was asked was to bend forward and point to where my pain was. I understand that Dr. M is very knowledgable and good at what he does but I don't think a more in depth diagnosis process would've hurt. The only reason my mind was put at ease was because the x-ray showed no sign of structural damage. I was prescribed meds and PT even though I've been doing PT for over a month with no results, though I'm hoping that whichever physical therapist I go to can help ease my pain. On the PT order sheet, the PT ordered was for my lumbar spine while the pain I'm experiencing is in my thoracic spine. The office was quite busy while I was there so I understand that clerical errors happen, but it felt as though they were trying to get people in and out as quickly as possible. Overall, the experience wasn't terrible but I do wish the appointment was a bit more in depth.

Great service, the staff was friendly and the Doctor explained what the issue was and all the treatment options. I appreciated being recommended the least invasive treatment first and the physical therapy suggestions as well.
