I just want to thank Dr. Forouzesh for all of his service throughout the years. He has been a good doctor to me. Ive been coming here for 35 years, he's been a very professional and proficient doctor . I have had a lot of issues with my RA, and because of Dr. Forouzesh he has helped me through the pain, and has helped me get on dialysis about 15 years ago I want to thank him for all the wonderful years of him being my doctor . He has been a true friend and a true doctor to me . I hope and pray he continues his work in the medical field .

I have been Dr. Forouzesh's patient for many years. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and experienced in his field of rheumatology, but he's well versed in many others. Dr. Forouzesh is very kind and gentle. His demeanour is fatherly. He really listens, which is rather unusual for a busy doctor. You feel that you are being taken care of as if you were his family. He is thorough and doesn't give up easily if he feels that maybe there could be more to investigate beyond the test results. He likes to get to the bottom of things and ensure that the outcome is right for his patient. I cannot speak more highly of Dr. Forouzesh. If you are lucky enough to be his patient, or become one, then be thankful. I am.

He is an amazing doctor. I fly in from Springfield Missouri to see him twice a year. He is the only doctor that has been able to get my arthritis pain under control. He is so kind and spends lots of time with me. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Forouzesh and his Staff are amazing. I have been coming here for a few years now and have seen improvement in my ailment. Even as my body did not respond to the medication at first, Dr. Forouzesh worked to find the right medication to treat my condition effectively. I continue to receive excellent care as various tests are performed regularly to make sure I remain in good health with no side-effects. I highly recommend Dr. Forouzesh

I was so fortunate to find Dr. Forouzesh back in in 1993 after moving into my new home. While I was watching a PBS Arthritis Telethon, He was there answering the phones and talking to the viewers about Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is what I was diagnosed with back in 1985. He had my attention as he spoke about my condition and the different ways of dealing with it. I was so pleased with what he was saying, and then to find out he was located in Culver City, was very cool. I made an appointmen

Ive been a patient of Dr.Forouzesh for over a year, he has helped me with my medical condition. Ive been struggling with pain, stress insomnia, anxiety etc... I have never seen any Doctor that takes time to listen to my problems and help with finding solutions without any hesitations he has made me comfortable that I admire and that makes me wanna listen to him and try. I have seen other doctors that have not taken time or concerns. I really appreciate him and recommend to anybody that is not i

For nearly 8 years I experienced flare-up symptoms that doctors claimed were unrelated. A combat Vet referred me to Dr. Forouzesh. Dr. was kind and patient as I listed my symptoms. He ran blood work and testing no other doctor had before. It was he that finally gave me a diagnosis and treatment. With a chronic condition, you learn to appreciate the office staff. Both are excellent in terms of knowledge, friendliness and overall care.

I am a victim of Dr. Forouzesh serious wrong doing! This facility should be closed down and prosecuted for negligence! BE AWARE and be VERY CAREFUL if you decide to visit his office! I wouldn't recommend him to my worse enemy!

The single best General Practitioner and Rheumatologist I have been to. Comprehensive, yet not overboard, knowledgeable from empiric ability, unlike the internet doctors of today, he is very tech savvy, he Physician Assistant, in-house Ultrasound Tech and front office, while overworked due to the number of patients seen in their small office are wonderful! If you're tired of being treated like a machine on an assembly-line and more like a human, Dr. Forouzesh and team is they way to go
