Dr Azimi has been caring for my mother well over ten years now. My mother is a retired RN and I have worked in healthcare about forty years (including fifteen years as a Patient Care Manager with hospice so I’ve worked with many cardiac patients and families). Between my mother’s and my own experience with physicians... Dr Azimi is definitely a stand-out amongst the many fine doctors we’ve worked with over the years. Dr Azimi easily shares his knowledge, educating us about heart health... Mom’s status and presents options for care (including the pros and cons) so we can make informed decisions... he totally supports whatever decisions we’ve made. Dr Azimi has a very comfortable manner and is easy to talk to... he is sensitive to Mom’s feelings, her fears and even her opposition to whatever he might say. He receives feedback wholeheartedly and it is obvious he truly enjoys and gets satisfaction caring for his patients... and their families! EXCELLENT physician... QUALITY person!

Doctor Azimi saved my live on December 9th 2017 La Mesa CA. I am 57 yrs old and very lucky to be alive and its all due to Doctor Azimi. I can't thank him enough, I had a massive heart attack and Doctor Azimi saved me from 100% blockage in the widow maker (2 stents) which very unlikely for a women to survive! Thank you Doctor Azimi!

We cant give enough praise & gratitude to Dr. Azimi .While performing an out patient test & procedure looking for Blockages in my husbands heart , he found one & immediately not only repaired it with a stint, but acting on a hunch [Quote by Dr Azimi ] he decided to do a Cat Scan on my husbands Abdomen as well. He then found 2 serious Abdominal Aneurisms & referred us to an excellent Vascular Surgeon who repaired them both. We were truly blessed to find Dr.Azimi May others be so fortunate.
