Not personable; no follow up. No degree of passion or compassion. Very disappointed.

Dr. Vaezi has treated me since at least 2009. Wouldn't trade him for anyone else. Would never go to another hospital.

Patient | September 7, 2017

Timely information and courteous visit.
Patient | May 17, 2017

I did not feel that he took the time to talk w/me about the current conditions and the full outcome of procedure he would perform. I felt like he was talking down to me a bit, not listening to my concerns.
Patient | May 15, 2017

I could only wish other providers could follow Dr. Vaezi's attitude and care for patients! Very good!

Dr. Vaezi is very polite & articulate.
