Just had my follow up appointment with Dr Lotfi after having an MRI done. Good news I seem to be healing so no further visits need unless symptoms get worse. However wait time for both visits was more than 45 minutes.

I was very pleased with my visit to this office and Dr. Lofti. There was not a very long wait, I went right into x-ray, then into a room and saw Dr. Lofti. He was very professional, to the point and personable at the same time. I was pleased with his initial diagnosis and the way were going to proceed with my back pain. I would recommend him to anyone having back issues.

Not the most informative doctor. the physician's assistant spent way more time with me than the doctor, and answered a lot of the questions i couldn't get much from the doc about. the PA was really nice though.

My wife visited Dr. Lotfi after she had an MRI of her back. He looked at the MRI and said surgery probably wouldn't be the best option for her. He said she should probably get injections in her back to stop the pain. He referred her to a pain specialist.

DR Lotfi took the time to listen to the background of my situation. He asked questions when I was not clear enough. He made sure I understood the cause of the pain I was having and very clearly explained all the options available to me and the sequence of events. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is experiencing problems with their neck or spine.

I had read that Dr. Lotfi will recommend surgery as a last resort. Just based on my wife's symptoms and her age (62), he already said she would need major back surgery. He's probably right, but I thought he would say that only after looking at MRI pics. We have a follow up appt next week after her MRI. We'll see what happens then.

He was in a rush, he didnt read my whole file. I had brought all my prior paper work and seemed overwhelmed. He made some copies but i found myself recommending he copy certain items for information. With how severe my diagnosis was he did offer any relief and I had to ask for pain medication which made me feel awkward. Then he prescribed me a drug that I am allergic too. Welcome to the weekend. The office staff was checked out and I felt my situation was urgent and not taken seriously.

My first visit with Dr. Lotfi was just an evaluation but it took a really long time to check in. However, the front desk staff was really nice and courteous. I think they were just extremely busy. Dr. Lotfi was great, very calm with a common sense approach to my problem. He had me get an MRI and on follow up recommended surgery. He took the time to explain why he was recommending this and provided me with a couple of websites where I could learn more. He also provided a recommendation for a 2nd opinion. I ended up going with the 2nd opinion as my surgeon for two reasons: 1. the 2nd Dr. is a lot closer to where I live. 2. I called Dr. Lotfi's assistance with a couple of follow up questions and she did not call me back. I felt a little more secure with the 2nd Dr's staff. But I think Dr. Lotfi is an excellent Dr. and I would definitely recommend him.

I met Dr. Lotfi 14 years ago with an onset of degenerative disc disease. I'm relatively fit, so his suggestion of physical therapy to strengthen my core muscles was went a long way in recovery. I appreciate that surgery was not his first inclination. His treatment in my case was conservative which I appreciate. After a recent injury I had reason to visit again for evaluation. Still as friendly and professional as ever. The wait time was not long at all.

Fast to be seen in office but waited a long time in the room. Not very empathetic. He does a good job though so if you don't need kindness and can tolerate his rough nature then you'll be happy with your care.
