Dr. Towfigh is truly amazing. He took the time to contact my other physicians and provided me with comprehensive care. He took his time with me and was able to diagnose my condition and effectively treat me after seeing numerous other doctors. I am so happy to have met him and his knowledgeable staff.

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!
