No wonder so few reviews. I just submitted one and it didn't take. He came into the Los Alamitos office without my chart and tried to fake it like all old guys are the same so just give them the usual speech and write a prescription and get paid. I reminded him of my specific situation that he had previously diagnosed and he went out and got my chart and came back to start over. They did a procedure and said I could leave my shirt on and I left with the back of my shirt covered in urine, had to go home and change before going back to work. Office staff has turned over a lot. First group of two females was sleep walking through the day but the second staff of one male was better. I don't know how the reviews are so positive. Maybe people are content to just move on to a different doctor and don't share their experiences. I will not be going back and have warned people about this guy.

Dr. Nowfar is an amazing surgeon and doctor. He treated my father and performed a very complicated surgery on him with skill care and great results. I am very grateful for the work he has done and for the time he took to explain the procedure, options, the risks and to answer all our questions. He was kind and caring and made us feel comfortable as we were considering our options and throughout the treatment.

While a wonderful job was done by the VA 20 yrs ago, I had a lot of post-surgery trauma with the catheter constantly getting blocked and the BCG treatments. I had a lot of pain for some time. I became hyper sensitive to pain and even touch. DR Nowfar he convinced me that he would NOT hurt me with the use of anesthesia. Dr Nowfar earned my complete trust and is a straight shooter that will tell you the truth and be as gentle as humanly possible. All they people were gr8 to PIH and his office.

I had a great experience with Dr. Nowfar. I had stress incontinence(basically leaking urine all the time). He performed a Robotic Burch and I no longer have any leaking. I am super impressed and happy with the results. I would highly recommend him.

I had to have a kidney stone removed and Dr. Nowfar performed my surgery. From my first meeting at my consultation to the post op follow up I've been very impressed with his expertise and care. Be prepared for longer wait time at appointments but good care is worth it!

Dr. Nowfar has won the 2018 Urologist of the year Award. He is highly educated and one of the best, whatever your issue might be I would highly recommend Dr. Nowfar for any Urological needs. I had a 13 cm cyst on my kidney. He explained the two procedures that could be used. We chose outpatient procedure that basically inserted a long needle under twilight and extracted the fluid ( in my case 2.2LB or 1 Litter). There is a small needle mark on my side, no bruising or pain. Back to normal.

I’m really surprised that Dr Nowfar has anything less than a perfect 5 star rating! He treated me for Cancer in my Bladder and Kidney and Surgically removed it then followed up with treatment! He is not only a Great Dr. but a very skilled Surgeon! He is the best of the best in my book as he saved my life! Such a quality person and Dr. Deserves nothing less than 5 stars!
