Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

[...] Dr. Ghavami was terse in his interaction with me and dismissive of my concerns for privacy. His [...] apology was worse when I confronted him and he made me feel like another checklist in his day.

The doctor was concerned, thorough, and generally pleasant to be around. My concern - and the reason I am unlikely to recommend him - is that I felt he was signing me up for as many follow up treatments as possible. I felt like I was at a used car dealership getting sold on the warranty. The quality of care was great. The "salesy" feeling I got once the examination was over wasn't.

I was impressed by the amount of time Dr. Ghavami was able to spend with me, and his openness to listening to my concerns.
