Dr. Eftekhari is an amazing physician. He was instrumental in saving my life when I went into acute liver failure due to chronic hepatitis c. I needed a life saving liver transplant. At the same time my liver failed, my kidneys went into failure. Dr. E cared for me pre and post transplant and I continue to see him three years later tri monthly so he can monitor my kidneys. His care has gotten my kidneys stable, and my blood pressure perfect. He really cares about his patients. Love him!
