What People Say About Dr. Ali Hafezi, MD
Reply
My wife has been dealing with pain in her arm for about 10 years. The pain has been getting progressively worse. My wife went to Dr. Hafezi yesterday, and he is/was the absolutely worst. He just told my wife there is nothing that could be done, my wife started crying. She is at a loss and is not willing to take narcotics. When Dr. Hafezi saw her crying he said "You're acting like I told you have cancer, relax". This guy is an idiot and has no idea how to deal with people.
