I highly recommend Dr Hosseini! He is professional, friendly and listens to concerns, as does his staff. My colonoscopy and all office visits were well above average and exceeded my expectations.
Thank you for your positive feedback, Andrea!

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."
