SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Dr. Lotfi is a true example of what a Stanford provider should be.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

I am beyond pleased to have established care with Dr. Lotfi. He was very kind, knowledgeable, thorough & compassionate. He addressed all my medical needs & questions.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Lotfi has a wonderful demeanor. Far too many doctors have made me feel guilty, stupid or inept. I think part of wellness is feeling positivity from my doctor: a smile, reassurance, hope & empowerment to motivate change for better health- all of which I felt from this visit. Very pleased.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

I have great confidence in Dr. Lotfi.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr.Lofti provided exceptionally attentive, engaged, and knowledgeable care. He took quite a bit of time, on his lunch hour, to patiently inquire about and discuss the entire constellation of health issues that I presented. I have been treated at UCSF, John Muir, and Mayo Clinic by excellent practitioners - Dr.Lofti easily ranks among the very best of them.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

SHC Patient, May 2018

My first visit with Dr. Justin Lofti was wonderful. Dr. Lofti read the medical files that were sent to him prior to my arrival and was aware of many of my medical issues in advance. This made the appointment go through very quickly and i did not have to tell him everything about me at 65. I feel very comfortable switching to him for my treatment and supervision of my continued health care.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. lofti has been the prominent reason I am able to function. he put me back together physically and mentally by actively listening to my issues without preconceived judgement and answers. only after thoroughly listening did he come up with clear conscise plan to help me walk and move after atrophy from stroke as well as deal with extreme anxiety from strokes as well as career and financial ruined due to memory and physical deterioration. I am grateful for Dr. Lifting after 15 years of struggling with piecemeal healthcare. Dr. Lofti was a resident when I started with him . Grateful for his knowledge and skills as an amazing listener that puts patients concerns into a plan.
