The clinic was well kept and the person handling scheduling was very nice, but that's it. Dr. Pourtaheri himself was cocky and had an abrasive bedside manner, was very bad at explaining what was going on and answering me or my mothers questions. My second appointment was only about 5 minutes long and we had to drive 2.5 hours only for him to say he can't do surgery on me and to maybe try UCSF, we requested that if he couldn't help us to contact us by phone but he said that's impossible.
We are sorry to hear that your experience with Dr. Pourtaheri was less than ideal. Your feedback is much appreciated, and we will make every effort to let the doctor know about your experience. We are always looking for ways to improve and encourage you to give us a call so that we may address any concerns you may have directly.
Dr. Pourtaheri was a great help.
