Review for Dr. Tanaka

She is an amazing doctor! She is so efficient and knowledgeable. She doesn’t waste your time during an appointment. My first OBGYN physician. I was so lucky that she was on call at the hospital that day when I had to deliver my daughter.

Review for Dr. Bagheri

He's a bit unconventional but extremely competent. He helped me fix a chronic condition that had been ailing me for 10+ years. Before Dr. Abramowitz, I'd seen a primary physician and also a specialist for this issue and neither of them could figure it out.
