What could be improved
    I met Dr. Rishidi for the first time yesterday, 3-24-20. She was highly recommended by another specialist. What a delight!!! She immediately apologized for the wait, but if she spends as much time with and shows as much concern for her other patients as she did me, I can’t and won’t begrudge the wait time. Dr. Rashidi did everything she could to make me, an 81-year-old patient, feel comfortable, welcome, and valued. My son, who teaches communication, was very impressed with her. She was exceedingly attentive, genuinely listened, patiently responded to questions, and explained everything in understandable ways. At no point did I feel pressured and she was very encouraging of me taking the time I need to make my decisions. If I have to have surgery, I couldn’t be more pleased or comfortable than to do this journey with Dr. Rashidi.
