Very rude physician, very rude office staff. Inconsiderate of patients. My appointment was scheduled, cancelled and rescheduled four times. Then when I finally saw her the appointment was rushed and she didn't even address my issues for why I was there.

This doctor was absolutely awful. I left feeling extremely violated and uncared for. I was in her office for a total of 3 minutes maybe. Didn’t wash her hands before or after examination and was extremely rude and rushed me. Did not address any of my issues or solve any of my questions. Cut me off every time I spoke and had a student in the room without my permission. Had to have my prescription rewritten 4 times because she didn’t take the time to pay attention to write it correctly.

I was randomly placed with Dr. Gitiforooz when making an urgent appt for a severe pain I was having in my abdomen. She came in the exam room, asked me if I was planning on having babies this year and that was it. She didn’t address why I was even there. When I tried to explain my symptoms she cut me off and didn’t listen and didn’t address it at all...no questions about anything whatsoever. She did an annual and breast exam very roughly and under 3 min., in and out asap. Horrible exp

I have had an ongoing health issue for nearly a year and have seen about 9 specialists, most of whom were of no help, but in just a few minutes Gitiforooz clearly explained the nature of my health problem and probable solutions. No other physician has done this. She was polite, listened, was direct., responsive and informative -- exactly what a physician should be. It has been a grueling year for me but within a few minutes she set me on the right path. Thank you Jesus!

Amazing! So warm and personable. Dr. Gitiforooz took the time to answer all of my questions and was very careful to make sure that I felt I had all of the information wanted before the end of my appointment. She listens and explains everything thoroughly. The only thing I would change would be the wait time. I waited for half an hour. It would Be nice if the staff would let you know if you were next or not. But other than that, great experience, nice staff and a wonderful doctor.

Misdiagnosed my uterine cancer. After the ROUGHEST gynecological exam of my life, told me, as a 70-year old woman, that the bleeding I sought treatment for was due to a hole in my colon and "I should watch what I was eating." Months later, after persistent bleeding, I was diagnosed with cancer by another provider. SEEING THIS PROVIDER ALMOST COST ME MY LIFE. I cannot strongly recommend AGAINST this poor excuse for a physician. ZERO STARS. Cleveland Clinic - you should remove your association.

I am appalled that this woman is allowed to represent Cleveland Clinic. She entered the room and asked me if I had ever had a colposcopy before. When I said "no", she handed me the consent signature pad and asked me to sign it. I was given no explanation of the procedure. Informed consent?? What a joke!. She told me to stop "jumping" after she had preceded to enter me without warning. It was the most inappropriate encounter I had ever had in my life. Words cannot describe my disappointment.

I'm not usually one to leave a review but after my wonderful experience with Dr. Gitiforooz yesterday I had to come on here and put my two cents in. I was very nervous about some worrying symptoms and took the next available appointment with any Gyno I could find. These review had me so anxious that I asked the nurse I first saw about the doctor and she immediately reassured me. When I saw Dr Gitiforooz she was truly kind, patient, and extremely reassuring. Her method was quick but not because s

I am absolutely appalled at how horrendous my experience was with this Dr. I went in for a routine pelvic examination & left feeling extremely violated. She came in & immediately started uncovering/touching me without any warning/explanation of what she was doing. She managed to do a pelvic, vaginal, & breast exam in a total of 2 minutes - leaving me in tears by the end of it. She asked why I was crying & simply left when I said I was anxious. No empathy or respect whatsoever. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

I was recommended Dr. Gitiforooz from my OBGYN to perform a robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy. She did a genius job. The day of surgery there was a whole "squad" around me who seemed to work together frequently on these operations and I was confident with their experience together. After doing a lot of research on my own, I couldn't have asked for a better hysterectomy experience. She answered questions for me on Cleveland Clinic "My Chart" as I was quite nervous! 7 weeks out, I feel great!

Hurt me to my heart, after gynecology appt I was prescribed birth control pills to cure heavy bleeding. I was still bleeding heavy and needed to make another appt finally got one after 3 weeks only to be told after I arrived at the clinic for my appt that she can't see me although I was scheduled and still bleeding heavy. I essentially begged to be seen my appt was firm but doctor still refused to see me, front desk informed me. I was in tears and just went to emergency to see if I could gethelp

She rushed through the exam and was not gentle at all. I expressed concerns I was having and she dismissed my questions and simply said "Just don't have a period then." This was after I expressed concern relating to family medical history. I will not go back to see her.
