Took my 94 year old mother to Dr Amini for follow up visit after Mom's ER visit for suspected cervical fracture. Staff very helpful in getting an appt quickly for early following week. Dr was precisely on time for appt, very thorough and conscientious, reviewed Mom's case in detail, provided detailed explanation of his findings and recommendations. Parking in building, wheelchair accessible. Mom sees a lot of healthcare providers, this was easily the most efficient and pleasant experience.
