I felt listened to, and she really took the time to understand my situation.

Also, her pacing of the call did not feel rushed for time or stressed.

Completely excellent.
excellent gastroenterologist !
very nice and professional
Wonderful provider. I feel very safe and secure in her care and would highly recommend her to anyone in need of her services. Cannot say enough good about her. P.s. the questions on this questionnaire are confusing—the ones about her asking me to tell her …. Not sure how to answer them. We did go over my treatment plan and next steps, if that is what was meant by those questions.
She seems to be a very good doctor. She understood my situation and has asked me to follow up with her to let her know how I am doing with the medication she prescribed.

Me sentí con confianza al decirle mis problemas y senti que me dió tiempo para explicar bien
Very helpful and understanding of my condtion
Dr. Neshatian seems very knowledgeable and caring. In person visits have always gone well. This was my first attempt at a video visit.
Leila has great bedside manner and did a very thorough job of explaining in detail her thoughts.
Dr. Neshatian is very kind, understanding, and listens to all my requests and concerns. Suggested next step in therapy and diagnostic procedure. Communication with her office was great. They called just fee minutes before to confirm that they are on time. That was really great as I work in surgery and it's difficult to leave at a certain time or extend my break if the office would run late.
She was very attentive, knowledgeable, also honest.
Concerned, cheerful, interested in patient’s well being
She is an extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and attentive Dr.. I feel confident in her care. It can be challenging to get questions thoughtfully answered via the messaging portal between visits. Overall, I believe she provides excellent care.
Everyone from the receptionist, the medical assistant and the doctor all made me feel comfortable, and that I was a person not a number or $. I also felt very well taken care of and that the doctor had a lot of compassion for my situation and is willing to help me get better. The medical assistance were also incredibly kind and they actually made eye contact with you which for me is very important to feel like I matter when I’m in a doctor appointment. I was a medical assistant for 30 years and it was always my goal to let the patient know that they matter, and everyone that helped me yesterday made me feel like I matter job well done thank you.
Dr. Neshatian was patient, empathetic, and very knowledgeable about the more arcane aspects of the problems which have beset me. I was most impressed at her ability to “think out of the box†and to suggest solutions that no one had posited before. And without being patronising in any way, she has given me hope. For that I am exceedingly thankful.
Excellent doctor listens and answered questions and explained my condition
Thank you.
Leila Neshatian was wonderful and professional. It was a little difficult to hear her at first, but that cleared up. I also felt a little rushed during the visit, but her advice was very good and most importantly she wanted to explore a solution I hadn't considered yet. Thank you
I am glad I am working with Leila Neshatian & her staff. Leila is very pleasant & easy to talk to. She has a calming effect on me & listens to me when I am trying to explain things. I felt like I already knew her the first time we communicated. She told me that she will continue to help me & she thinks that I will probably heal & be back to myself again, as long as I follow the plan, meaning trying to help myself, doing my exercises & staying focused on what is supposed to be done daily. She also told me that if I had any problems or concerns that I can contact she & her staff. That put me at ease & made me feel like I am not alone in this effort to be well again & get back to who I was before I got sick.
I have seen two physicians regarding my issue. Although they have been helpful, Dr. Neshatian has given me helpful knowledge on the issue.
She provided me hope that she can help resolve My issues.
I feel for the first time in a long time I was actually heard about my symptoms and I didn't end the visit feeling I didn't have answers like I usually do. I felt she gave me answers and options and to repeat test I've had in the past to compare to where I am at now and to touch base after that which made me feel she took my symptoms that are affecting me and my quality of life seriously.

Dr Neshatian is the very best
All care providers should be like these people!
I have always good experience with doctor.
