My Surgeon recommended Dr Falahati-I was impressed. enjoyed the information.,he explained everything. Listened to my questions. and answered extremely well in my terms. The waiting was a little long, very busy and some of the customers were asking questions. This can happen, however after my appt I could understand, He takes time with his patients, and listens. And if questions are asked he explains them. And this can take more time. However would recommend him all the time.

I travelled from CA to see Dr Falahati. He can treat me online as well. He is so thorough. Very caring. He does not rush me out the door and shows concern for my health

I have been very very I'll for too long to remember. Although, it takes time to be evaluated and try different meds. I feel like it has been really worth working with Dr. Falahati-Nini Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism. I am still on the road to recovery but maybe if I had started with Dr. Falahati-nina a decade ago I probably wouldn't have gotten so close to dying in the first place. He cares deeply for his patients. He is as much an artist who has honed his craft as he is a medical doctor. Just wish I had met him sooner

Dr Falahati was very knowledgeable and kind and treated my osteoporosis very professionally but I was seeing two endocrinologists and both wanted me to see them exclusively for my osteoporosis and diabetes and so I chose the one I had seen the longest at cottonwood endocrinology

STAY CLEAR FROM THIS PLACE AND DOCTOR! This place should be out of business. The doctors are rude, arrogant and all of my office visits felt like I was in an interrogation room. Very depressing offices. The doctors and staff never ever did exam, they sit at a desk and ask you questions only. Sharon and Michelle in the office staff are incompetent. You never get to speak to your doctors, only the front office people who know nothing about my condition. Horrible experiences there.

I was seeing Dr Falahati for several years and trusted him with my care for my multiple thyroid nodules and diabetes. I left after a series of events. 1) My care was suddenly turned over to a PA without notice, and in spite of my repeated requests to see MY doctor, I was told that he was “unavailable”. 2) The PA, after seeing me just once, kept on calling and pressuring me to have a surgery. 3) I discovered that Dr Falahati lied to me about the results of my biopsy after my new doctor read them.

Dr. Falahati-Nini is very knowledgeable. He is an excellent doctor that I highly recommend. He has helped my husband and myself. We trust him completely. He listens to your questions and answers them in a way that you can understand.

I have been seeing Dr Falahati for a while now and recently he turned my care to his PA. While she is very nice, she is also new out of school and often says ummmm....and hesitates a lot and really doesn’t know what to do with my thyroid meds so she just guesses each time and has me come back. I kinda wish I felt like the dr was more involved still so I knew if this newly graduated PA was doing things right.

Today, I left this practice. I didn't dislike or enthusiastically like the practitioner I saw that is why I'm not reviewing her specifically. The horrendous experience I had was a reflection of the practice, office procedures, and office staff. For months I had been coming in to, eventually be diagnosed with Hoshimotos, for blood work and evaluations. I would get blood work done on Monday, see the PA on Friday. The appointments last maybe 10 minutes, it was a hassle paying a $40 copay and arrang

I’m new to utah from Orange County California and my first impression after one visit is the staff is organized and super friendly. Dr Falahati was on time, which is unheard of in California, and very knowledgeable and friendly. Coming from an office in California that had the worst people skills and no organization, Utah Endo is a wonderful change!!

When I started seeing Dr. Falahati-Nini my Type II was off the charts. In a little over a year my A1C has dropped and stayed at 5.7 and lost nearly 60 lbs due to excellent care I receive from him. I have the best doctor - patient reationship I've ever had. I trust my life to this man who gave me back hope in living with this terrible condition. God bless.

Dr. Falahati was great and treated my disease much more sensibly then my Primary Care doctor was. His staff was terrific and cared for me promptly and courteously.

I would never recommend this healthcare provider is his clinic Utah Endocrinologist Associates. He was very unprofessional and only cared about his bottom line and that his staff meet their quota of seeing 30+ patients a day or he will fire them. His words not mine. His staff is overworked and honestly are unable to handle co plea cases such as mine again his words not mine. And he was unprepared for my appt. My medical chart was 3 weeks behind. All he did was ambush me.

I saw Dr. Falahati at Endocrinology Associates one time with uncontrolled type II insulin dependent diabetes. He showed little interest in my health and turned my case over to his Physician's Assistant. I never saw or heard from Dr. Falahati again. After months under the treatment of his PA, my cardiologist referred me to Professor Dana Clark, MD the chief endocrinologist at the Diabetes Center at the UUMC. dr.

Dr. Falahati has helped me regain my life with his knowledge and plan moving forward regarding my thyroid medications and diet. After my regular doc closed his practice, I saw an internal medicine doc that totally turned my world upside down prescribing wrong dosages. Dr. Falahati "gets it right" by ORDERING all the right tests, UNDERSTANDING blood tests, and FOLLOWING up that you are on track with what works best for you. Most happy with his service and the service of his well trained staff

I am 51 years old, my spirits were low, and my cholesterol was very high. I have been to MANY doctors but have never felt the care I receive from this man and his staff! They are all top notch. My cholesterol is being managed well and he listens to all my concerns. I have seen him for years and have recommended him to family and friends. Thank you so much Dr. Falahati for all you do for me, you truly go above and beyond!
