On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give Dr. Forouzesh a 12 hands down! He has been my Rheumatologist since July of 2015 after being the one to CORRECTLY diagnose me with Lupus (SLE)/R.A. and APS - a very tricky autoimmune combination to manage. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about Lupus and a variety of other autoimmune diseases, Dr. Forouzesh is above all else very kind, compassionate and consistent in his patient care. He is very hands on, down to scheduling his own appointments and will even call you back on weekends or long after his office has closed. He is a terrific man who really cares! I HIGHLY recommend him if you're looking for a stellar Rheumatologist in the greater Los Angeles area...

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.

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

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.
