Dr. Pooyan listens to my issues and in my opinion, is caring and very thorough. If he believes another doctor should evaluate he is happy to make a referral to ensure your concerns are met. Yesterday was my third visit for follow up I feel comfortable that everything that can be done is being done for my condition. Great Doctor!

I took my husband to Dr. Pooyan for a lung function test and evaluation on in October, I found him to be attentive and personal in his approach to him. So far, so good. I'm looking forward to having my husband have a good doctor with him.

Dr. Pooyan & his critical care team literally saved my life. I will never forget him. After suffering a submassive saddle PE w/multiple B/L PEs I became hemodynamically unstable while on a heparin drip. Thanks to Dr. Pooyan’s quick thinking I was administered life saving TPA (clot buster) & survived an event that nearly 50% of people die from. 1,000 characters is not enough to talk about what a great doctor he is. He remained calm & professional. He is knowledgeable. He listened to me & acknowledged my questions & concerns. He made sure I was given correct follow up care in the ICU. More importantly you can tell that he really cares about people. We have stayed in contact & he has followed my care nearly 18 mos later from VA to NY any time I have concerns about my medications or health he’s willing to give me advice. I trust him implicitly, if I lived closer he would be my pulmonologist. I’m just blessed he was there on the scariest day of my life!

I had developed a terrible cough after having Influenza-A in January. My chest hurt and when I would cough it was so painful that I had trouble standing. I had visited Urgent Care multiple times, 2 xrays, and 2 additional Dr Visits of which where of little help in solving the issue. I was referred to Dr. Pooyan and after an examination and a couple tests a CT scan was ordered, I was prescribed a nebulizer, and multple inhalers. I got a personal call two days later (Friday) from Dr. Pooyan asking how I was doing. Nice personal touch that is often NOT seen in today's medical profession. Then got another call from Dr. Pooyan the day after my CT scan. He had good and bad news for me. Good news, he found out what was causing the pain and that my lungs were clearing. Bad news was that I coughed so hard for so long that I had broken a rib. Dr Pooyan was great at following up personally and definitely cares about his clients well-being

I found the doctor to be rushed (I was in and out in under 10 minutes) and he didn't provide any new insights into causes of my symptoms. I was told to get a CT and follow up with the NP. Underwhelmed.

I have been so very impressed with Dr. Pooyan. He has been so involved with my pulmonary disease and all I have to do is email him and he responds back and sometimes even calls me directly. What doctor does that nowadays? Very few. I am very thankful that I found him, and has an outstanding office staff to boot!

I am beyond impressed with Dr Pooyan. His demeanor and bed-side manner is calm, positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, and personal. If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring and compassionate, then you should consider seeing Dr Pooyan. Dr. Pooyan has my total loyalty as a patient and will continue to do so!

I went to Dr Pooyan after trying another sleep study options. I was treated with warmth and kindness by the entire staff. Dr Pooyan sat with me patiently and explained every detail of sleep apnea and why it was necessary to do a study. He did not insist on doing things that were not necessary. After my sleep study, knowing that I was concerned, he had a member of his staff call me. When I met with Dr Pooyan, a few days later, he explained every detail to me and answered all of my questions.

Dr. Pooyan is absolutely the best doctor I know of. I was referred to him upon discovery of a mass in my left lung. From the first time I meet Dr. P, till the major surgery and partial resection of my lung, took less than 3 weeks. Dr. P and his dedicated staff worked none stops to arrange all the necessary test, and appointments for me. Dr. P has an extraordinary bed manner. He goes above and beyond in taking care of his patient. I can't recommend Dr. P high enough. I feel blessed to have

I saw Dr. Pooyan for sleep apnea and I would highly recommend him. He arranged for me to have a sleep apnea study done and everything went very smoothly. He is very patient and took his time to explain everything about sleep apnea and made it very easy to understand. After the study was done, I went back in to see him and he went over the results with me and answered all my questions. I can tell he really cares about his patients. Am glad my allergist recommended him to me.

Dr. Pooyan has been exceptional. I am an elderly gentleman and given my age and my medical condition, doctor visits are a weekly routine for me. I regularly see a cardiologist, endocrinologist, general practitioner, etc. I can easily say that the care and the patience that Dr. Pooyan displays is second to none. He is very thorough in his approach. A very capable and competent physician and more importantly he is a genuine person that really cares about the well being of his patients.

Dr. Pooyan is very pleasant and takes time with you, not rushed at all. I am seeing him for sleep apnea and C-Pap use. He was very helpful discussing medications and interested in my overall health issues. He gives a very thorough physical exam and I recommend him highly to anyone seeking a sleep study, sleep apena management or for a pulmonary issue. He is the best Dr. I have seen in the last few years. I wish more primary Docs had his manner and skills.

He took time to explain all of the available options including the pros/cons of conducting on-site versus at-home sleep studies, as well as, which types of remedies best match my condition.
