Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Anoushfar was able to diagnose my medical condition that has plagued me for 3 years. His "bedside manner" isn't the greatest- he just gets down to the point, no small talk. Overall I'm happy with my surgery outcome, and I'd see him again.
in Roswell, NM |
So disappointed. I had high hopes. I was scared and shaking and nervous. After an hour and a half wait, he blew through the door to spend his whopping 3 minutes with me, didn't even introduce himself. He was RUDE about what little he did say. He didn't seem to care about anything but humiliating me & getting out of that room. Needless to say, I won't be back to him or anyone else.... maybe if I get wheeled in on a gurney unable to breath they will take care of me in the emergency room.
