I was searching for a physician for an annual check up after I had a disappointing interaction with a previous health care provider. My friend referred me to Dr. Fathollahi and I immediately felt at ease when I walked into her office. She had a positive energy about her which was so uplifting and contagious. I felt my concerns were heard and understood, and I left her office feeling a lot more positive about any outcomes. As a prospective physician myself, I appreciated the way she communicated with me, in that she incorporated sociological and psychological concepts when explaining a physiological response. It set the precedent to how I wish to interact with future patients. It is especially notable since most people are laymen to medicine and scientific rhetoric; I can understand how it can easily become impersonal if scientific jargon is used heavily. In all, I highly recommend a visit with Dr. Fathollahi. You will feel genuinely cared for.

I really like Dr. Fathollahi, she's knowledgeable and listens to my concerns and has a friendly and caring manner. My only complaint is that she seems to have a tendency to request additional tests (i.e. ultrasound) for minor issues, to be on the safe side, typically adding "I'm not worried (but you should get this ultrasound)". In my case, these additional tests have translated into having to take time out of my already busy schedule, having to pay since my insurance covered only a small portion, and - most importantly- created unnecessary anxiety. I understand the need to be cautious, but I'd like to have a doctor that knows when further tests are really called for. If you're not worried, then please don't ask me to undergo additional tests. I realize this may have to do with a general concern of doctors of getting sued and the need to "cover their backs", but I find it rather unfortunate. By the way, my partner, who also goes to Dr. Fathollahi has had the same experience (more than once), so I don't think I'm an isolated case. All in all, I think she's a great doctor, but I'd love to see her not requesting additional tests each time I go see her (unless they are really necessary).

As always, Dr Fathollahi greeted me with a warm welcome and a big smile. We discussed the reason for my visit, my recent health issues and dr appointmemts since i had last met with Dr Fathollahi. I always feel that she listens to everything I have to say, no matter how minor the detail may be. I feel that she takes excellent care of me. Though her office is very professional I find that using Zocdoc is much more efficient for making appointments.

I think she's a good doctor, I honestly like her, but the way the office is run is far below ideal. Over scheduled, poor time management. Its hard to get anyone to answer the phone, or return a call when a voicemail is left, so you end up booking on Zocdoc, but they don't put the Zocdoc appointments into their daily calendar, and they end up overbooked and you end up waiting for excessively long times and missing far more work than you'd intended.

Dr.Fathollahi is the most incredible doctor I have ever had. I had been putting off going to the doctor for years and years (10 to be exact), and I finally got the guts to go (thank you to my friend, Stacey). She was so kind and helpful, and so very patient with me as I am terrified of needles. She went above and beyond, made me feel like the only person in the world and truly was amazing. My view of doctors has changed, and she completely understood my fear and helped me work through it. I highly recommend visiting her and making her your general doctor!

The front desk is dysfunctional. The Doctor shares there office with a different practice and the staff there refuse to help with anything. The doctor's secretary was at lunch and there was no way to notify the doctor that I was there for my appointment. When she came back 35 minutes later, I was seen but the doctor was not busy and just had not been notified I was there.
