SHC Patient, Apr 2018

I had a wonderful physician she was patient, thorough, and understanding.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. Hafezi is a dream. I have been to see her twice, and, each time, I leave feeling better than when I arrived. She is the first doctor I have had who explains things without being prompted, and spends more time on the appointment than I expect. I found that I thought the appointment was finished a couple times, only to have her ask me some more questions or give additional information, in a very easy way. I feel incredibly comfortable around her, and feel that she really cares and has a great deal of expertise. I am so grateful to have found Dr. Hafezi, and look forward to continuing to work with her. She is friendly, easy to talk to, pays attention to details, asks great questions, and is just wonderful. She's a real asset to Stanford's system. I found myself happy the rest of the day, and telling my family how lucky I am to have her as my doctor.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

I was so impressed with Dr. Hafezi. She made me more comfortable than any OB/GYN before. Excellent care & bedside manner.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Dr. Hafezi was kind and thorough with everything I went through in my pregnancy and even the birth of my son. She never made me feel rushed and was am incredible listener. Her sensitivity and genuine care towards me was more that I could ask for. And she was cool, calm and collected when my son was born and explained everything that was going on so I didn't feel scared, even when I had to get an episiotomy.

Always feel like i can talk to her on a personal level. Love her :)

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

I've had "bad luck" with previous providers. Dr. made me feel like I was being listened to, she knew I came in under a sensitive issue and I never felt discourages, rushed or ignored. She was clear with explanations and setting up a follow-up. For the first time ever I feel happy about who is caring for my health and needs.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

My physician is very knowledgeable and she described everything in detail for me.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Doctor Hafezi is the best care provider I've ever had, and I wish I was with her from the beginning of my pregnancy. She takes time to answer all my questions and never disregards my concerns.
