My appointment was at 11:00am and with just 1 car in the parking lot and no people in the waiting room, I did not get to see the doctor to almost 11:30am. I was prescribed a drug that did not come in the amount prescribed. Took a week or two just to get the proper prescription called in. I was told a sleep mask mfg would contact me but after calling back two weeks later to check on the meeting, I find out the appointment was not even set up by the staff. It is like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Sweet people but not efficient in their job.

Dr. Eziri takes time to listen to your concerns and educate you on your condition. The staff is nice and always willing to help. I was struggling to get one of my medications and they were nice enough to walk me through the process.

Dr. Eziri is an excellent doctor. He knows exactly how to accurately explain to a patient the condition which is present, and he is highly skilled at treating the condition. His expertise extends beyond pulmonology; he is an expert at explaining other issues which tests reveal are present. He shows great concern for his patients, and takes the time needed with each one. I will recommend Dr. Eziri very highly to my family and friends.

This man is a joke!! Doesn't listen to his patients, is condescending, has a huge ego, really enjoys hearing himself talk, and is a rip-off!!! He basis diagnosis off of his opinions, and is not a man of his word!! I am still waiting on a return call from him about a refund. Do not ever take anyone you love to this man. His receptionist will x-ray you with NO protective covering!The whole TWO hour experience was a complete waste of time! However, his staff was friendly.

Extremely intelligent doctor and spot on with diagnosis. However, looks at his computer more than at you, the patient. When asked a direct question about how he would know if my CPAP was at the right setting for me, all he said was "you are compliant." Well, yes, I plan to be compliant but that never answered my question. Also, extremely long waits to see him. Office staff is not knowledgeable about how to space patients shoo there is not hours to wait to be seen. Changing to another pulmonologi

The wait was over 3 hours each time I went. He had one nurse doing every thing. He needs to hire more help.so his patients do not have to wait hours.
