I am so thankful to have found Dr.Afrooz. She is extremely compassionate and reassuring. She looks at symptoms and works toward finding the root cause - not just a bandaid to deal with the symptoms. She is so easy to talk to and you never feel rushed- she gives each patient the time needed to address all concerns. She never rushed through an appointment ! Very pleased and highly recommend her.
