My experience was horrible. Was sent from my ophthalmologist to see this Dr. for a possible condition it was ruled a yes, but wanted to run blood tests Cat scan said it might be something else . All tests came back with no findings of anything else . Fine . Wanted my tests results never called me had to call office many times - over a week later really didn’t want to give me my negative results, told me you know ... you could have call the radiologist. So , needless to say , no longer a doctor of mine . Very very rude . Changes his story. Good luck to who ever books appointments with him . No would not recommend this doctor to my family or Friends

Because of COVID I delayed my surgery with Dr. B for months and I wished I hadn’t. They run a tight ship over there and follow all of the necessary safety protocols. He’s a nice guy and honest surgeon. Very grateful for choosing him

Yes, definitely. He is sensitive, soft spoken and quickly establish rapport. Although Dr. Van is my usual physician who does my annual check-up, Dr, Baharestani quickly assessed my condition and prescribed a regimen for a cure. I was impressed with him especially as a physician I had never met. We were strangers but I will remember him most positively.

Dr. Baharestani is not only a great doctor, he is truly a very talented artist! I've been to Dr. Baharestani twice, both times for cosmetic injections. I am absolutely thrilled with the results! Although I have been to other physicians for these types of procedures, I've never been nearly as happy with the results as I have with Dr. Baharestani. Not only is he a very talented physician, Dr. Baharestani is a humble and sweet man who has a wonderful bedside manner. He is calm, and this sense of calm alleviates any anxiety I would otherwise feel. Thank you, Dr. Baharestani!
