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.

The doctor ordered a sleep study eight years ago. He failed to check the bipap machine in the intervening years. He did not check on the status of the sleep apnea problem in the intervening
