Dr. Fathollahi is very sweet and attentive, but is also meticulously careful. By this I mean that she takes every possible precaution; I always leave her office with several referrals in hand and, in the past, she's been very thorough ininvestigating symptoms that other doctors overlooked. That may have saved my life, in fact. It goes without saying, I'm very grateful to be her patient.

Overall everyone was friendly. But I personally did not like this doc's bedside manner. She was trying to be helpful and thorough but instead made me feel more worried about several things. She was kind but something about her manner justraised my anxiety instead of making me feel re-assured after a doc visit.

Dr Fathollahi is for me what a true primary care doctor should be! She is thorough, listens to everything I have to say and addresses all my questions and concerns. She prescribes a thorough set of tests before coming up witha diagnosis and proposed treatment which is mostly conservative (not your regular pill prescriber). All the specialist referred by her were very thorough as well. I can really feel she cares about her patients well being.

The doctor was so patient and sweet - I was surprised that she was the one who came to get me in the waiting room, and proceeded to take my blood pressure and blood sample herself! I didn't feel rushed atall, and was able to talk about everything in detail, which is not how I normally feel with doctors in NYC. Highly recommend!

Best doctor i have ever been too. She apologized multiple times for 10 min of wait. She spent her time with me and asked a lot of questions. Unlike other doctors who make you spend more time with the nurse ratherthan them, Dr Roya spent all her time with me.
