Dr. Niazi is one of the most pleasant physicians I have ever met. He takes the time to explain everything in detail and in words a lay person easily understands. His work is awesome! His staff are pleasant and professional as well. All this provides for an excellent experience in what normally could be very stressful. I can't think of any criticism.
Sacramento, CA |
Dr. Niazi is great. He is a perfectionist and only wants the best outcome for you. I would recommend him anytime. Scheduling- so simple, Office Environment - very nice office with a very friendly and courteous staff. I ask a lot of questions and they were great in getting e the answers!! If there was a higher score for level of trust, he would get it. Dr. Niazi explains very clearly, the plan and the expected outcome. I wish there were more DR. Niazi's and his staff.

I was pretty satisfied with my cosmetic surgery & mole removal. I did feel my implants should have been 1 or 2 sizes bigger to make up for loose skin on top of my breasts & we should have discussed it more presurgery but I am happy with them and maybe my skin is too stretched out already on top. One other comment is that he really tried with a sales pitch at my very last appointment trying to make me feel like I look old. Everyone I meet says I look so young. Taking long time to be confident.

I am so thankful to have Dr. Niazi through my post breast cancer treatment and reconstruction. I've had many difficulties due to the damage done by radiation and Dr. Niazi has been right there with me the whole way always giving me excellent advice and treatment. He and his staff are kind and understanding and always wanting to help and get me to the best possible result. I will always recommend Dr. Niazi to anyone who may need him.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August, 2016, leading to a double mastectomy and reconstruction. I did A LOT of research before choosing a plastic surgeon. I couldn't have made a better choice than Dr. Niazi. From the very first consultation, he has made me feel comfortable and has explained every part of the process along the way. He is a perfectionist, and I would want nothing less for this procedure. His staff is also amazing...very friendly, caring, and responsive! 5+++ stars!!!
in Sacramento, CA |
I would highly recommend Dr. Niazi to anyone. My needs, as a someone undergoing cancer treatment, required immediate attention and that is exactly what I received from Dr. Niazi and his excellent staff. The competence was obvious in how they first alleviated any stress caused by an insurance snafu and then followed by the finest procedural, clinical and surgical response to my issue. Some of the best waiting room art in town also.

Thank you. We appreciate the feedback.
in Galt, CA |
I had a very good experience while under the care of Dr. Niazi. I had carpal and cubital tunnel surgeries on both arms, and Dr. Niazi was extremely thorough with the explanation as what was going to happen, how I was going to feel/recover. So far I've felt better every day, with very little pain. Dr. Niazi's staff is also very professional and welcoming every visit from the first to the last.
Thank you. We appreciate the feedback.
in Screamer ca. |
Dr. Niazi does not communicate well, my wife had a tummy tuck done with him, he did a horrible job, after tummy tuck was completed, we had concerns with the outcome of her surgery, he avoided all questions regarding the awful job he did and instead try to sell her botox injections for her face. He is definitely in it for the money. We had a consult to get the surgery that he did repaired and the surgeon agreed that Dr niazi's surgery was not up to par. I'm writing this review to help others.
Our records indicate that we do not have a patient from Screamer, CA. As a general rule, Dr Niazi always spends the full consultation time to discuss all aspects of care including the risks, benefits and limitations of a procedure as that is part of an informed consent. Dr Niazi ends the consultation by asking if there are any questions or there is something that he has not explained properly. Dr Niazi never "sells" something. The procedure request comes from a patient and then it is discussed.

Dr. Niazi gave me back my confidence and renewed my spirit. I had Gastric Bypass and I lost the weight so drastically that the skin on my stomach was horrid and caused a lot of health problems for me. I feel great!! No more back aches or terrible rashes. I feel better emotionally as well.
