Dr. Fathollahi is great. She is very thorough and competent, and has a very nice and calm bedside manner. This was a routine annual physical and I was seeing her for the first time. She took her time to go through my medical history and ask me detailed questions. I did not feel rushed and she answered all my questions in a very satisfactory manner. Overall, a great experience and I will definitely go back!

She was quick and efficient, but she didn't listen to my questions or comments fully before answering, so I'm not sure she was really listening.

Dr. Fathollahi was very nice and, most importantly, very thorough, asking many questions and explaining the procedures. Everyone in the office was very pleasant, including on the phone when I recently called with a follow up question. I waited more than 30 minutes, but when Dr. Fathollahi saw me, she apologized for the delay. It was worth the wait. I'm delighted to have found such a good and friendly doctor in the city. I would definitely recommend her to others (already have).

I really think Dr. Fathollahi is fantastic. She has an excellent bedside manner and makes you feel instantly comfortable. I would have likely been seen right away, but the office implemented a new electronic check-in and that required some time initially. Once I was done with that they took me in right away. The appointment it self was great -- quick and easy and thorough. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Fathollahi.

I've been with Dr. Fathollahi for 3 years now and could not be happier. I have found in her a doctor who I can trust and who always has my best interest at heart. She has a comprehensive knowledge in various fields and areas which I found to be extremely helpful. All doctors who she referred me to have been great as well! Last but not least, she is a wonderful person and I appreciate her professionalism.

My wait of 25 minutes was longer than the time she spent with me (20 minutes). Went in to get a flu checked out, but she turned the visit into an annual physical checkup instead. Checkup felt very rushed, she didn't check motor reflexes.

Dr. Fathollahi is amazing. She really listens and helps you get to the root of any problems. Just going over my medical history, she noticed I had an enlarged thyroid--something she is helping me to treat now. I highly recommend her.

Best doctor experience I have had. I went in with a list of questions and she touched upon all of the subjects without me even having to say them. Very thorough and respectful ! The main reason for my checkup was to get blood work done to check my nutrition because of my vegan diet. She was knowledgeable about which tests to conduct in this situation and it was a great help. I waited for about 30 minutes but she apologized profusely when she saw me. The wait was well worth the thoroughness and kindness. I already have recommended her to coworkers !

The reason I love Dr. Fathollahi is she handles everything with you directly from blood pressure to weight. She discusses the changes in your body over the course of the year and recommends what nutrition is right for you based on your blood work or certain ailments. Dr. Fathollahi is so thorough in discussing treatment options, referrals and what works best for your lifestyle. I so appreciate her support and knowledge of my health and needs. Highly recommended!

Dr. Fathollahi is caring and thorough. She asks the full complement of diagnostic questions at each visit and really listens to your answers before moving on to the physical exam. She is non-judgmental, calm, and confident, and she doesn't hesitate to refer to specialists when the situation demands. I would recommend her to anyone.

Doctor was apologetic about wait. It is true what other reviewers say. She listens. She uses medical judgement and knowledge to come to diagnosis and treatment and does not go crazy checking everything unnecessarily. I am very picky since I too am a physician and I like dr Fathollahi

The office called to confirm my appt about an hour beforehand, so it would have been nice if they'd given me a heads up that they were running so very far behind schedule. The doctor was great, however. Very personable and efficient.

Really had an awful experience with the staff here, they are incredibly rude, unprofessional, and act like they would rather be anywhere but working at their office. Doctor Roya was very kind but I did not feel like she was very helpful with some of my health concerns. I will not be going back to this office.

I hadn't been to a GP in awhile -- but am so happy to have found Dr. Fathollahi. She was very kind and easy to talk to. My appointment was efficient without feeling rushed. I also received my test results via an email through a web portal you are given access to as a patient. I enjoy this tool, and that it also allows me to communicate directly with her and the office as needed.
