What People Say About Dr. Sassan Soltani, MD

I like the pleasant welcome from the nurses. The smile on Dr. Solani's face when he enters the room, I can feel the warmth exuding from the entire staff. Dr. Soltani has treated me for several years. He is always aware of the latest medicines and procedures. He takes his time when necessary not only to get a complete history but to explain what you have, what will happen if you don't treat it, what your other options are and how well or how long they will work. I wish he was my internistl !

I had very positive interactions with Dr. Soltani and his staff. Dr. Soltani included a very detailed review, asked lots of questions and answered as many questions as he had answers for. I felt very comfortable with him. Definitely would recommend although note that he books up fast so there may be a delay in getting an appointment.

I've had several Gastroenterologists, before I saw Dr. Soltani. He is by far the most caring, patient, understanding doctor, of any doctors, I've seen since my appendix ruptured 13 years ago. I had many recurring problems following the surgeries after the rupture and saw many doctors. I found all of them to be uncaring. They did not listen to me, answer my questions, were too busy for me, and were inpatient. Dr. Soltani is kind. Something rare, and why I will always recommend him to others.

I was dreading my second colonoscopy at the age of 76, and almost decided not to have it because of the hassle and discomfort of earlier procedures. Fortunately - after meeting Dr. Soltani, and being reassured by his understanding, professional, and empathetic manner - I did it. I had two polyps - the concerning type - removed. No cancer, but I will have another colonoscopy in five years, just to be safe. I’m not worried at all.

Had some tests done and the dr’s office is not in a hurry to get back to the patient after 4 days. Kept calling the office to follow up, and receptionist has attitude in addition.

Dr Soltani is an amazing doctor. He honestly cares for his patients. I believe that he's a doctor that wants to help his patients. I've went to visit doctor Soltani because I had lower right abdominal pain. He did a very thorough check and found that it might be spasms in my intestines. He told me to just keep an eye on it and that I should be fine. He gave me some samples of pure peppermint extract pills and said that it may ease my pain. He also asked me to do an ultrasound and blood test jus
