What People Say About Dr. Arash Aghel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

at my two visits, I found both Dr. Aghel and his P.A., very effective in evaluating my condition, and reviewing my history since my previous visits. Both are excellent, compassionate, communicators, setting me at ease and answering all questions I had in a very professional, but understandable manner. Their inquiry helped me recall information that I did not have readily available in my mental list, which I find commendable. I would highly recommend anyone with a significantly complex cardiovascular problem to see Dr. Aghel and His Team. I rate Dr. Aghel and team 5 Stars!

Dr. Aghel proves a point I was trained to learn: Listen to workers and supervisors to judge someone’s skills and expertise. After two planned procedures and one wholly unexpected procedure during an ER visit on a day he just happened to be the duty doc, I can attest I heard only POSITIVE and ADMIRING comments from ALL of his peers throughout. I trust Dr. Aghel implicitly and will always follow his most professional lead on how to precisely make me better. He has an outstanding bedside and deskside manner and I never end a session with any issues or concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Aghel to anyone searching for a doc that takes “time” to “listen” and can “understand” how best to “explain” next steps.

He takes time to understand my concerns and give detailed responses. He makes me feel concerned even with me knowing I am only one of many patients.
