Dr. Bagheri is my hero. He diagnosed my condition after listening to me patiently and asking many questions, not rushing me through like several other doctors before him. He then ordered x-rays, which he read immediately and came down with the diagnosis right on the spot, the very first visit. I was shocked since I have been doctoring with at least 5 different doctors across specialties for several years to no avail. Now, after 6 months, all my symptoms have disappeared and I owe it all to him.

Always available, he will see you ASAP if you have a problem . He is a true caring physician, and I recommend him to my friends with no reservation. He has been my rheumatologist for the past 10 years, and not once I have had a problem with him. I wish I could say the same thing about my other doctors. Obviously this is a big office and quite busy, which is not my type, but Dr. Bagheri makes the whole experience worth it.

I have been seeing Dr Bagheri for more than 6 years now. He always follows through with the labs, orders and medications. Very knowledgeable and prompt. Unlike some other doctors, you do not sit in waiting area for long before being seen. The office is pretty busy and sometimes you are kept on hold for 15-20 minutes before the nurse can answer you. Overall, I am very happy with Dr Bagheri's care.
I would not recommend this Doc to anyone I cared about!! He does not listen to what you're saying, it seemed as if he had my diagnosis already after reading what my referring doctor had sent. Fortunately I got a second opinion, come to find out that Dr. Bagheri's diagnosis was only partially correct. Partially can make a big difference in how you live your life!!

He is a rarity in today's medical world. He listens and spends time

This man was so intelligent he was like a walking medical dictionary. My medical records did not reflect my visit appropriately though. That is the only reason it's not a 5 because this guy is brilliant.

First appointment I arrived just on time as the weather was raining with high winds and I had a one hour drive in slow traffic. I arrive, find the right area and get in a long line. I wait 10+ minutes to get to check in desk and am told that I am late for my appointment and that the doctor cannot see me today, I must reschedule. Wow, for a clinic whom serves a population - that by definition- has mobility as one of their physical conditions, this zero tolerance policy seems way out of line!!!!

excellent Clinician, spends time and answers questions. Diagnose and treated me after others missed for 3 years.
