We waited for an hour and half before we were seen.It was so disappointing & annoying since they scheduled the appointments on time & patients are expected to be examined on their schedule..Very very disappointed!!

Dr. Haghighat is caring, straightforward and encouraging. He has made a very difficult time in my life easier by explaining my condition in terms and in a manner that my husband and I can understand. Since our first visit in August 2015 I have had nothing but complete confidence in Dr. Haghighat's decisions and performance in treating me for multiple myeloma. A cancer diagnosis is a very scary thing to hear, Dr.Haghighat has made it easier to accept and deal with. Glad he's in my corner!
