Wayne, PA |
I went to see Dr. Towfigh last month in regards to some persistent migraines. His staff called me two days before my appointment to confirm (I appreciated the reminder as well!) Immediately when I walked in, I was warmly greeted by a lovely lady at the front desk and informed of my wait time (literally less than 2 minutes). I was kindly escorted into the exam room where Dr. Towfigh took the time to listen to my issue, talk about why my Primary Care Physican referred me and trouble shoot any othe
in New York, NY |
Dr. Towfigh was the most thorough doctor I‘ve seen in ages. He spent a lot of time listening to my concerns and medical history and examining me. I never felt rushed or like I was a number. He is the type of doctor that knows his patients well and cares about their outcomes. His staff is courteous and efficient and feel as though im in good hands whenever I have a medical issue. I recommend dr. Towfigh to anyone with a neurological issue or a sleep problem. That office is great!
