Don't Question his answers, he takes any questions or request for clarification as an insult to his own intelligence. He has good intentions as a human, but its either his way or no way. He could care less abut about how you 'feel' its all about what the lab results on his computer screen. "If Numbers are Within Range then your healthy, bye bye... come back when your numbers aren't in range and we'll talk more"

Dr.Pazooki was awesome. I saw him for a follow-up for Type 2 DM. It was my first time seeing him, and he listened to my concerns about my current diet and blood sugar readings. He did change my medication around according to my concerns. He let me guide my medical care, and I appreciate that. He didn't rush me out of the room.He was very polite, funny and charming. I'd recommend him to other people for sure!
He has a good bed side manner, explains things, and actually takes time with you to answer questions.
In a hurry to leave room and always about pills. Does not answer questions

Dr Pazooki did FNA and gave me results of benign. Got a 2nd opinion and had nodule removed, turns out it was cancer. He told me at initial apt we would deal with adrenal and cortisol after ultrasound and FNA. After that he told me there was nothing he could do for me. So thankful I got a 2nd opinion!

Dr. Pazooki was the 3rd doctor I went to regarding recent issues but he was the 1st to really listen. Within weeks I was diagnosed with a parathyroid adenoma and surgery was scheduled. I am back to my old self after the surgery; I didn't realize how bad I felt until feeling so good again now.
