Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The office doesn’t return phone calls. Additionally they are more interested in keeping the money in their practice (doing a pre test that has already been performed) rather than doing the procedure that is needed.

I am so happy, I finally am fixed after 45 years!! I have had left foot and leg swelling since I was 11 years old. Countless doctors have looked and suggested diet, sitting, standing, lymph node massage, lifts in my shoes and more. None of it worked or solved my problem, which got worse as I aged. Dr. Vakili was the only doctor that knew where to start diagnosing this lifelong problem. I trust him to help anyone with chronic conditions. He and his staff are simply amazing!

Dr. Vakili took the time to help me get a proper diagnosis when I was struggling with my health as a young adult. I appreciate the time he took to listen to me and accurately get the testing I needed. He took every step to ensure my best interest and well-being while being a professional medical provider especially during COVID-19. I felt comfortable with his staff and his office during COVID-19. Thank you Dr. Vakili.

From day one of being with dr vakili he has treated me like a patient and not just a number on a board. my last cardiologist barly spent any time with me going over anything. Dr vakili hasn"t been that way he has explained all my medication and what they are helping with and has spoke to me about all of the different test he has run and made me feel so much better overall.
