Care Philosophy

I chose the specialty of Urology because it allows me to help patients, both as a surgeon and as a doctor. New robotic and minimally invasive surgical techniques are allowing me to create dramatic improvements in many patients' quality of life; yet equally rewarding is the chance to go beyond simply offering a surgical solution, and care for those patients over a lifetime. Many of my patients will never require the skills of a surgeon, yet I find tremendous satisfaction in getting to know them as people, developing a personal relationship, and helping them improve their health. I believe that excellent diagnostic skills are only part of what makes a good doctor. The second and perhaps even more important element is the willingness to care for a patient like they were your own family member, your mother, father, brother or sister. Before deciding to become a doctor, I graduated from Princeton with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. With that background, it is easy to understand my interest in new technologies, such as robotics, and the benefits it offers patients. Yet what I've learned as a doctor--and the reason I left engineering--is that nothing can replace the satisfaction of caring for and building relationships with people.

Seems to always be in a big hurry. Not very friendly. Has not helped me.
Fullerton, CA |
Excellent office with plenty of parking which has been hard to find in the area. (Busy medical area) Dr. Alavi was a really nice and down to earth doctor. Office staff were friendly and work hard to maintain a busy office.

Very disappointing. Arrived early to complete paperwork, waited 1 hour to see the doctor. Doctor says we will test you for cancer and will call you. That was October 6, 2016, no call from the doctors office. I called three times asking for test results. to is November 21,2016 still don't know the test results.

Months ago I went to see Dr. Alavi in Marinelli & Feldman office. His young nurse is HORRIBLE, she lacks compassion. She is arrogant, rude, she did everything possible to try and humiliation and embarrass me. She disclosed confidential medical information about my illness and treatment within hearing range of other staff members and patients. Apparently she thinks something is humorous and degrading about patients medical procedures and tests. She has no regard for a patients dignity or priva

I highly recommend Dr. Alavi. He has wonderful bedside manors. He is very gentle, informative, and assuring. I had a great experience. No side affects and quick healing.

I always look at reviews, experience, and education prior seeing a doctor. I noticed that Dr. Alavi has high score on all of them! I was referred to Dr. Alavi by a friend of mine who has been very happy. I am very glad that I made an apartment with Dr. Alavi. He knows his area well. He is very honest and caring.
