Dr. Abumeri is an amazing doctor. My husband needed surgery for a tumor of the brain. Dr. Abumeri explained everything in detail regarding the surgery. He is kind, caring, and concerned for his patients. Our family is very grateful to Dr. Abumeri for taking such good care of our loved one.

Review for Dr. Imad Abumeri, MD

Wonderful doctor with a great “bedside manner”. Takes the time to explain and discuss the issue(s). I’ve had great responses from the staff and rarely waited over a week for an appointment.

My knee replacement has been messed up since he did it. It was bad it gave out after seeing him on a Thursday and stated it looked as good as the day he put it in. I fell the next day and broke my femur because my knee gave out.

Very thoughtful, thorough treatment for hiatal hernia. Successful surgical repair. The doctor and staff were professional, kind and efficient. Highly recommend Dr. Irani.

Review for Dr. Hormuz Irani, MD

My visit was really great. All of the staff really took the time to make sure I was comfortable and that I understood the procedures. What could have turned out to be a very scary ordeal was quite the opposite.

Review for Dr. David Fang, MD

I went to Dr. Kitt and I would not recommend him to anyone. He asked me what I thought was wrong with me. That was what I was paying him to tell me. He insulted me and didn't help me at all. You maybe able to get in with him faster than another doctor, but you will just waste your time and money.

We love Dr. Ahmed. He's direct. He doesn't mince words and will tell you the truth even if you don't like it. He's no bull......I appreciate that. He is a very caring man. I think he is miss understood. We have been going to him for years. Other people I know love him too.
