Dr. Firooz was nice enough to me, however she was horrible to her staff. During my last visit, she belittled her staff on at least 3 separate occasions, never once being discrete. I can not continue to see a professional who is so unprofessional with her staff. Unacceptable.

I went to a followup appointment after having blood drawn. I reviewed my list of medications with the nurse. From my typewritten list handed to her at the initial visit, she had 50 percent of the information correct. When the doctor came in she asked if I was here for my post-injection followup. I informed her I had blood drawn and was asking for the results. She said everything was fine. At a second look she said oooops, there is something here, etc. Lost faith completely/moving on.
