I've been a patient of Dr. Hosseini for about 15 years now, and for many good reasons. He's a great doctor, listen to your concern, and answer your questions, and does not rush through to get to the next patient. He has performed many routine endoscopy on me, and never had any side effects. He's mellow, gentle, soft-spoken, caring, and very knowledgeable. His staff (scheduler) is also great, and very efficient. The staff at the endoscopy center is also well-trained and very professional. If you have any GI issues, Dr. Hosseini is highly recommended. A reminder: if you have small vein, you should definitely tell the nurse that you would prefer the anesthesiologist/IV specialist to start your IV. The IV failure rate is about 50% for people with small veins. It's not just with Dr. Hosseini's facility, but at other hospital/surgery center as well. If you don't want to get poke 2x or even 3x, and go home with a big bruise on your hand, and in pain from the failed IV, inform the nurse. N

Thank you for your positive feedback, David!
He listens and has been very responsive to my needs. It’s important to research your conditions yourself. Doctor is open to hearing what I say and answering any questions. Takes time to listen . I recommend him and would add that if it turns out he is not right for you , then find another doctor. So far I respect what he has to offer.

Thank you!
my experience was exceptional. Beside being so Nervous of the month prior to the actual day of my procedure, it was a breeze the staff where friendly, professional respectful. Dr Hosseini is professional calming, engaging on answering my concern and questions. He took time to call me back for more question and concern that i had. And yes I would recommend Dr Hosseini. to my family and friends.

Thank you so much for your positive feedback!
An awful blend of arrogance and incompetence, all Dr. Hosseini does is to push Dicyclomine, Pentasa, and Humira no matter what you say or need. He couldn't feel swelling/abnormalities I could feel clear as day ("I just feel your organs) and took no interest in the one treatment that had helped me, just sneering at it and dismissing it even though it helped me far more than anything he ever suggested. Turns out I had a slow growing lymphoma I could have caught far sooner but for him. Awful "Dr."
