Review for Dr. Nowfar

I did not have to wait long after my arrival, which is always a plus. Dr Allaei was knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone made sure you were comfortable for the embolization procedure. And I like the follow up calls the next day. Not everyone does that.

Review for Dr. Allaei

I had a PAE procedure and the results were excellent. The staff and facility were great but most importantly Dr Allaei was highly skilled. Not only would I recommend him but I have a friend who will be going to him. You can easily get a question to Dr Allaei and the follow up is great.

Jameson Jul 04 2020
