I have been seeing Dr. Soni for over a decade and he actually sees multiple generations in my family. He is very kind and compassionate and truly cares about his patients. He always does everything he can to make sure we get the best care including in the hospital and office. His staff are all very nice and helpful. I hope he never retires so I can keep going to him!

His Fountain Valley office staff are very rude and not helpful. Its a struggle trying to get assistance from his staff. The Dr. himself was not helpful and not truthful. He lied to the other doctor regarding my situation. I was shocked in reading my medical records from the other MD regarding what he said to them about me. I am very disappointed in his practice. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

As a first time patient January of 2016, I found Dr Soni to be compassionate, friendly and easy to speak with. I did not feel my office visit was rushed in any manner. Dr Soni also saw me to the patient check out desk. Giving the assistant further information regarding outside testing. The office is well run (there are several doctors) clean and staff was friendly and informative.
