Patient Reviews (5)
in Bastrop, Tx. |
I have been a patient of Dr. Chefizadeh since 2008. I never dread going to the Dr. because I know that he will take the time to answer any questions and always explains the results of any test ordered. Also the people in the office are always very courteous and efficient. The average time I spend from arrival at the office to actually seeing Dr. Chefizadeh is about 20 minutes. The most important thing, however, is that he is an excellent physician and I feel safe in his care.
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Chafizadeh is an attentive, thorough and caring cardiologist. I have seen him several times and each time he gives full attention to my issues, educates me on them and doesn't hesitate to follow up. He is totally focused on my well being. He always makes sure I understand my treatment and medical approach. He is an excellent cardiologist and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
