Dr Elahi and his staff were very professional and competent, I enjoyed my first visit with him today. I was very impressed with the interactive multimedia screen in the exam room that he used to explain the anatomy behind my neurological complaints.
My initial experience of the office was good, but a bit strange. The staff was very pleasant and nice and they got me into the doctor very quickly. Where it got weird was when a nurse was taking my weight and blood pressure. She began a lengthy explanation of how it was a "cash only" practice and I couldn't use credit card, but there was an ATM downstairs. Then, in almost the same breath, she told me she would take my picture with her iPad, because it was an "all digital" office. I don't necessarily mind paying in cash, but to be an "all digital" practice that doesn't accept credit card seems a bit odd. Nevermind the fact that the only other time I have ever had a nurse or doctor take my picture was when my dentist wanted to show off the good work he did on my teeth. Again, not a bad thing, just unusual.
Dr. Chilingaryan wasn't overly friendly (few doctors are), but he too was nice and listened to my long list of concerns. He performed a few manual tests in the office and I was satisfied with his explanations and conclusions. I never felt rushed, but I didn't feel quite as comfortable as I have felt with other doctors either.
Overall, I would say it was a good experience. And, the parking was free with validation. If I go back, I'll just try to remember to bring cash. =)
