While I cannot comment on Mortazavi's medical experience, my view of the admin office portion of the practice is decidedly negative. Bad info, insolent behavior .. just terrible experience in attempting to set at appointment.

The doctor was not prepared, he did not have my file. I've been refered to his office by my phisician, his office called me to schedule the appointment and they did not request any document from my phisician. When I showed up to the appointment, the doctor did not know why I'm there. He did not find anything in the file. When I told him are you sure? he yelled at me "Do you think I'm lying" I told him this was a waste of time and I will not comeback here. He offended me all the way to the door and insulted me in front of all the patients and staff. I will never go back to this doctor. He should not be in charge of taking care of patients.

I know that Dr Mortazavi is very knowledgeable and good doctor but his front desk nurses and answering phone service is very poor. This because even if you are trying to make an appointment to see the doctor, it becomes difficult since you must stay on the phone for sometimes like 30 minutes without someone answering your call. For instance, if you can’t reach to the doctor or the people who supposed to take care of your medical record which is need for authorization for CT, then what is the point of going and wasting your time. The front desk person put you on hold for 8 to 10 minute and then before answering the phone it is hanged-up. To reach to one medical personal it will take you eight attempt of phone call and at least 30 minutes wait. In conclusion I can say that though their doctors are good, the services they render is disastrous and such situation prevent people from coming to their office. I will never go to this clinic this is the worst doctor office I have ever been to.

My husband has been a patient for several years-we think he is a marvelous dr. and highly recommend him. I would also like to compliment one person in his office staff, Megan. She is one in a million-always cheerful, goes out of her way to accomodate our needs, willing to help us in any way she can. She is a definite asset to his staff and should be recognized for it.
