Review for Dr. Sultan

Don't bother. When I had technical difficulties for telehealth (not my fault), she called, but didn't even try to do the visit over the phone. Worthless. Would rate 0 stars if I could.

Review for Dr. Bijan

Dr Marini is very nice it's his office staff that is unfriendly, non helpful and just bad. You call can never get a human so leave message after message all to not get returned. I've had too many consistent problems with office I just had to find another doctor
