Dr Hovhanessian is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors out there. He sees the person not just another patient. He understands how illness effects our lives and how life can effect our illness without judgement. He is straight forward but with compassion. He is insightful and thorough. I would without a doubt trust him with my life and highly reccommend him to others. I just with there were more doctors like him.
