My son had been coughing constantly for weeks and we saw dr. Pirzada in hopes of getting to the bottom of what was causing his cough. She was very patient and understanding and after a few weeks we had results! Besides the fact that her and her team got to the root of the problem, there level of compassion really couldn't compare to any other experience we've come across. I truly felt that she cared about my son snd wad so happy to hear him sounding so good weeks later!

Doctor Pirzad truly cares about me as her patient. I believe she is truly committed to my health and her compassion is moving. She measures me constantly that she will not give up, and she has supported that. She even hugged my mother and I when delivering hard news.
