Have been going to Dr Tafreshi for about 3 years. The doctor has always been helpful and informative. But the office staff leaves something to be desired. Most of the time they are rude and quick to cut you off when asking any questions. Calling for an appointment when sick is nearly impossible. They are less than helpful except to tell you to go to urgent care, as though they are too busy to see you, a current patient. I know things have changed drastically since Covid but doctors still need to encourage patients to get medical treatment, especially when you have already been fully vaccinated weeks ago, for ailments they have. I will most likely look for a new primary care doctor. If you want to save yourself some anguish, pick another doctors office.

I have lived in Las Vegas for 30+ years. I have been to soo many Dr's looking for a good Primary Care Provider but never finding one that I really felt was very good. I was referred to Dr Tafreshi by another Dr to get my pre surgery testing done and I knew right away that I liked him. I liked Dr Tafreshi and staff so well that I decided to go back to him for my primary care. I've now been going to Dr Tafreshi for about 2yrs and I would recommend him to everyone. Dr Tafreshi is patient and he listens to you. He does not just pop into the room, express his opinion and pop back out leaving you wondering what just happened and wishing you had been more vocal. There is rarely long wait to get in to see him scheduling wise or in the waiting room. I wish I had found Dr Tafreshi years ago.

My husband and I have been with Dr Tafreshi for almost 25 years and we have never been happier with any doctor. Dr Tafreshi gives you his attention and tries to correct or resolve your issues. I have recommended Dr. Tafreshi to my friends and they also are very happy. Thank you to Dr. Tafreshi for your help over the years.

He is the best physician I have ever had. He is so caring and not in a hurry. He sits with you goes over everything and doesn't leave until he is sure you are cared for.
