I have been with DR. Riyaz for the last 4 years. I have never met a more kind caring respectful experienced Dr. He has always been on time and if there was ever an emergency on his end where he wasn't going to make it on time the staff was quick to inform and reschedule my early morning appointments. this only happened if there was an accident on the 405 and he was stuck in traffic beyond his control however he always apologized more than he needed to. the staff was always friendly and very helpful
