What People Say About Dr. Michael Pourfar, MD
Reply
My friend (I'm his POA) saw Dr. Pourfar and we were very impressed and thankful for how much time Dr. Pourfar spent with us, assessing my friend and taking time to answer all of our questions. He described his medication changes in great detail and made sure we understood the next steps. And I have to also thank Maria Banvard in his office for being so communicative and diligent after the appointment. She made appointments the same day for certain tests (because back-and-forth travel is difficult, to say the least) and followed up with his primary doc and assisted living facility where my friend lives, to make sure they sent Dr. Pourfar the results of those tests.
