Dr. Eftekhari is exceptional in involving his patients in the decisions to be made in the treatment plan. He is a very caring doctor and is understanding of the patient's apprehension. He showed patience through the many questions that I had and thoughtfully answered them in a way that made me feel a part of the team. I felt confident that I was in the right place for treatment. Outstanding doctor and staff in surgery scheduling and finance.
