Dr. Ais the most patient-centric I have ever been treated by. I was taken by ambulance to ER directly from internists office with low oxygen saturation coughing up blood. I was lucky that Dr. Ahari was on ER. The first interaction I had with him was, while med tech staff was working me up with electrodes etc., I said to my wife I hadn't eaten anything and was hungry. Dr. A overheard, and when he saw me for the first time he gave me a sandwich. Wish I had more characters to discuss Dr. A.

Followed my case without being retained to find cause of recurring atypical pneumonias. After initial consult with another doctor, I retained Dr. Ahari who recommended bronchoscopy when other pulmonologist rejected that procedure as unnecessary, and due to Dr. Ahari's persistence, it was done promptly and with full explanation of the risks. He found a surprising rare lesion causing the pneumonia. Was not detectable by prior ct scan so bronchoscopy was the best procedure to identify the cause.
