Review for Dr. Wolf

Dr. Tarmin is a fantastic doctor! She has experience and delivers all information in a warm, calm, "chilled" way so that it's not so scary to go for a colonoscopy. She responds to emails immediately and calls right away. I'm crazy about her and highly recommend her.

I miss Dr Nikou. She was my doctor for about 5-years and the best doctor I have ever known! I’m 67-years old and have seen many good doctors, but none compare to Dr Nikou. My wife, son, daughter, and grand daughter have all seen Dr Nikou. I would still be seeing her if she hadn’t moved.

Review for Dr. Moinfar

This doctor did Coolsculpting on my son's chin, leaving a large hideous bubble, a condition he did not disclose, then refused to fix the issue, leaving my son disfigured. Doctors like him give the profession a bad name. Go to someone else, if something goes wrong, you will be left disfigured.
