Dr Payan was very professional. He recommended treatment and took the the time to explain why the treatment he recommended. I am still in the midst of treatment, but was happy with the overall visit. Staff was professional and courteous.

This wonderful man saw me through a cancer diagnosis and treatment. He is very knowledgeable and especially kind and compassionate. His recommendation of a surgeon was amazing. I always felt safe in his care.

Our first time visiting the clinic..was not very impressed with the front desk receptionists..no personality..no smiles or welcoming atmosphere..tried to make conversation with Cecilia to provoke a smile.. with no luck..super dry and un-caring...HOWEVER,.. once inside and meeting with Dr. PAYAN.. all changed.. He is professional with a caring personality..and patient.. listens to all your concerns. HE IS WONDERFUL!.. recommend him highly.. but office personnel needs to be replaced..

Excellent experience. Dr Payan listened to my concerns, and asked pertinent questions. He did not discard my thoughts or my assumptions, but took them in and added his own. If someone wants a caring Doctor that will give one an honest assessment and not what one want to hear, this is the Doctor that should be seen.
