Dr. Haghighat has been treating me for the past several years! He has pulled me through a number of life threatening conditions. I feel like I owe my life to Dr. Haghighat because of his wonderful skills to treat my heart. He wants each of his patients to not just get better but to improve their lives. He encourages me and has always treated my problems as if they were his own Mother's problems. I trust him completely!

My husband has been a patient of Dr. Haghighat since we moved here in 2014. The first visit with him we felt as if we new him for many years and on a personal level. Dr. H is a very kind friendly , caring man not only to his patients but to their loved ones as well. Questions are always answered and also shown by diagram, with complete explanation. He saved my husbands life as he detected a blockage in the widow makers artery that was 99% blocked and he jumped into action to mend it.Fantastic Dr

Amazing Doctor! Dr. Haghihat has saved my life on several occasions. He and his staff have always shown genuine concern and have the rare ability to explain each procedure in a way that helps ease minds. Yes I said each procedure, you see he has repaired me with 6 stents! It's really no wonder patients come from the world over to seek his genius. Bye the way, his associates at Cardio. Inst. ain't bad either! They did my triple bi-pass, bifemoral, coratid surgeries and most recently my pacer!!!

Very rushed. Allowed patient to leave with blood pressure of 185/110, failed to monitor until pressure dropped. Doctor mandated policies clearly take precedence over patient needs as evidenced by long waiting periods after requesting transfer to new doc. Offices are dirty/worn. Reported all issues to Office Manager & Assistant, to no avail. Medicine questions remain unanswered for 3 days now. Not enough space to list all issues.
