Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I love seeing patients. Every patient has his/her own story. I enjoy learning not only about their symptoms but also about their life's history, their goals for the future, their hobbies, and what things are important to them. Patients are not just a collection of symptoms; they are human beings with emotions, challenges, and aspirations. It is important for me to understand the root cause of their concerns and treat them as a whole. I often bond with my patients and treat them as if they are my own family members.Read more

Dr. Fotuhi really cares about his patients. The caring and listening ear for me when dealing with a challenging situation really helped me a great deal. It is quick to note how smart he is but the nice thing is before I leave he always makes sure I understand what the goal is and what he knows about my condition. I wish I would have found him 10 years ago, I think my health would be in a different place. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking an expert in neurology.

I did not get the results nor information I expected. I'm sure he's been effective for others, just not me.
