My low rating is based on his staff. I would give the doctor a five except for them. They do not return phone calls even when the doctor himself has requested you call.

Such a wonderful doctor. I also really enjoy his staff. All of them are so pleasant. I was referred to Dr. Eslami by a friend who spoke very highly of him and she was right. He’s very knowledgeable and skilled. Came out of my surgery with no complications or concerns. A+

To summarize in a sentence; stay away from this surgeon if possible and only use as a last resort. Takes too many patients which causes long waits. He tries to sell you things you don't need and forces you to buy 300 dollars worth of stuff in order to do surgery on you. Makes his gastric sleeves too small and causes complications which could take up to a year to recover. He very little knowledge regarding medications. Very rude and cold, doesn't care about you only his wallet and his stats.

Dr. Eslami is a fantastic surgeon. He performed a VSG in July, and I've had no complications due to the VSG. He is caring, listens and has great bedside manner. It is true that the office staff is a little hard to reach at times. I think the office is extremely busy, and so I found that the best way to get things done is to pop in to the office (no appointment). I've never been turned away when stopping by in person--I'm always able to talk to whoever I need when I visit in person.

Dr. Eslami has always made me feel cared for and valued. He always spends the time to answer my many questions and is very patient with my inquisitive mother, as well, who likes to come with me to ALL my appointments. The staff is also very welcoming. I have already lost 80lbs. I commend myself and his faith in me. Surgery had no complications. Thank you Dr. Eslami!

Dr. Eslami is a very smart, funny, and kind surgeon! He really cares about you and helps you every step of the way to reach your weight loss goals. Whenever I see him, he is asking about how my personal life is going and how my family is doing! Everyone in his office is so nice! I mean EVERYONE! The most important thing to me is that he has never lost anyone on the operating table! So important! Also, he pushes you to succeed! Thank you for always being on point Dr Eslami! Will refer to friends

Dr. Eslami is a great surgeon! I feel he takes the time to get to know patients and cares about their success. He makes you feel taken care of at the same time he is clear and to the point. That is so important when it comes to weight loss surgery since it's such a big life change! If you want your surgery to go well I would trust Dr. Eslami. He came well recommended.

He lacks manor & he is rude. The office NEVER returns calls. My first visit with him was in the beginning of March & as of today (May 11) has not heard back from them. In past year, he has changed 3 offices & they never bother to call or send a letter. Read all his reviews, they all BAD. RUN!!!

Dr Eslami removed a large mass from my right thigh, on 3/9/16. At the consultation, he was short, rude, and lacking in details about the surgery and recovery. Being a single mom, and self-employed, recovery time was a huge issue. I woke up from surgery with 12 staples instead of stitches and steri-strips, and he is a plastic surgeon. Pain management was never discussed. After care was severely lacking due to his office relocating, during the week my staples needed to come out.

It seemed as if he was pestered by my presence. He has horrible bedside manner. He shooed me out of the hospital and did not give me any antibiotics after my surgery. He made me feel as if I were a nuisance. I wish I could give him no stars. I did not feel like he listened to, or valued what I had to say about MY health. Staff:I called them 4 times and left 3,messages asking for an appointment. After the fourth call theu call and ask, what was your question? Really???

I went in for a gallbladder consult, he said I needed to lose weight. When he took out my gallbladder, after the surgery; he did not even check in on me. When he did see me it was to tell me to leave the hospital. No...how are you feeling, no let me take a look at the surgery incisions, rude and very unsympathetic.
