CONVERSATION SHOWED TRUE CONCERN FOR MY HEALTH

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

Very nice, knowledgeable and thorough!

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

Everybody was very nice and treated me well, Dr. Sajjadi was very thorough and informative, and extremely patient and caring. He was very knowledgable about my issues and gave me great advise to help get me better. He gave me several options and wasn't pushy or demanding. This was the very best doctor I have seen in my life. He's a great example of a knowledgeable and caring physician...

SHC Patient, Feb 2020

Dr. Sajjadi is great! He always impresses me. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.

SHC Patient, Feb 2020

care provider was sometimes courteous, sometimes very abrupt. The biggest concern was the non concern regarding quite serious side effects as a result of high doses of prescribed steroids and/ negative interactions with other multiple prescribed medications

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

dr. Sajjadi is the most patient, caring dr. I have ever experienced. takes all the time I need

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

This doctor is very smart and knows his stuff. In regards to a vestibular migraine, I still am unsure of how or why I seemingly get them from time to time and they take forever (over two months or longer) to go away. The doctor has responded to emails when sent to him.

Very thorough visit with scribe/MA, PA, MD, audiologist

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Just wanted to say Thank you Thank you.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

good

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

The doctor did not rush through my appointment. He was very thorough and concerned and willing to do further testing before making a diagnosis.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

I have never been more impressed by the care I received (first time at office) by Dr. Sajjadi and his PA Sherry. They discussed the seriousness of my condition, the previous treatment I received and how he wanted to proceed to get some relief. I left after an hour with multiple appointments (MRI, future visit) as well as a plan for the next 30 days.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

The good doctor took his Time to share with me about the surgery about the risks about the rewards and the confidence that gives people on the surgery outcome.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Dr. Sajjadi was the only ENT I have seen who was able to figure out what was going on with a very bizarre and rare case of my Eustachian tube dysfunction and he was able to develop a medical management plan that has resulted in significant improvement. He is one of those rare doctors that is extremely detail oriented and you can tell it is from his passion for caring for patients and the field - he is not one of those doctors that is at Stanford just for the research. Overall he is everything a doctor should be - Sharp, empathetic, detail oriented, and very experienced. I will be recommending many people to him.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

I recommended Dr Hamid Sajjadi to my co workersalready.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Exceptional Doctor, PA and audiologist on staff.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

Both Sherry and Dr.Sajjadi were very thorough in their exams, spent considerable time evaluating my problem, provided clear instructions for follow-up medications and future appt.

Good.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Sajjadi and Sherry are the absolute best!

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Very good explanation.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

This was based off my interaction with Dr. Sajjadi. I felt like for waiting for as long as I did, I should not have seen him only for 10 mins. I will 100% NOT be recommending this office to anyone.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr was very approachable, listened to my concerns and did not rush through. He explained everything.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

this doctor and his staff have helped me considerably in improving my hearing.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I would definitely recommend this doctor but the clinic and the wait times would come with a definite warning. I feel like they are so bad to recommend someone would be to risk a friendship because they have to get through this massive delay to get to a good doctor.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

good experience

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Again, this was last minute appointment and the doctor did not rush through the visit and treated me with the same care and concern as always.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

it seems like every time I come I get a lot of paper to read and out the door. no discussion you do the work. I'm capable of doing this but a lot of people my age this is overwhelming and they really have no recommendations from the doctor.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Was happy with experience.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Simply one of the best !

SHC Patient, May 2018

Care provider is knowledgeable but the waiting time is unacceptable.

SHC Patient, May 2018

THE DR. ALWAYS TAKES TIME TO EXPLAIN THINGS AND ANSWER QUESTIONS. NEVER RUSHED. TOOK THE TIME TO SET UP AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE AUDIOLOGIST TO DISCUSS A PROBLEM WITH THE NEW PONTO HEARING AID.

SHC Patient, May 2018

good

SHC Patient, May 2018

The Dr. has always seemed to care about my hearing and ear health since I first met him. I feel i have a friend

Appreciate the knowledgeable, professional service.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Always superb ad usual.

Care provider was very good, the waiting was not.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

I have many allergies and sinus issues that complicate some of my ENT issues. This office has been very helpful

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

I believe the Doc is a teaching professional at Stanford , I can see why. I've trusted the good Doc with my life , Need I say more?

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Highest quality care and competence

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Visits have always been a good experience. The doctor is knowledgeable and informative. Superior service.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Thorough & very explanatory.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

He seems like he cares, and he was the first one to apologize for the wait. But he told me that I was on "auto pilot" and that he didn't need to see me anymore, that I could get my prescription from my GP or a Neurologist. But if I wanted, he'd be happy to continue to see me once a year. But really did not feel he was considering my feelings or worries and did not feel welcome to return to his office. The PA saw me first, she genuinely seemed to care about me. However, if I asked any specific questions she said "thats a question for the doctor" and moved on.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Every one in the office has always been very friendly, helpful & empathetic.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

the CP just read to me the MRI summary result. and then he said, you should take another MRI and see another plastic surgeon. My impression is that, he is trying to milk' me as much as he can. I spent almost $1000 for MRI and all I heared was, you should take another MRI.He did not even look at my ear. He asked me to smile. very disappointed.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

great doctor

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

I have complete confidence that I am receiving the best treatment.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Dr and PA both well versed in my history, communicated compassionate concern along with their medical expertise.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

I was not happy about being made to wait for so long. The provider is lacking good bedside manner. I hear he is the best so I feel as though I should continue treatments with him, but I was much happier seeing the PA and hope to continue doing that.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

He is excellent!

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

The only complain is waiting time. THat said, he did accomodate me the same day before when my doctor called his office.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

I FEEL THAT ALL MY VISITS HAVE BEEN POSITIVE. EVERYTHING EXPLAINED TO ME IN DETAIL AND ALL MY QUESTIONS ANSWERED.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Dr. Sajjadi gave thorough instructions and followed up with complete written instructions.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Dr. Sajjadi is an awesome person. Every time I go to his office I feel like I am meeting with a friend not my doctor.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

love the doctor and assistants but waiting time is usually takes extra time

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

I feel confident with the provider

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

excellent service

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

I have already recommended my doctor. He is a brilliant physician.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

all good

SHC Patient, May 2017

No apprehension or complaints.

SHC Patient, May 2017

I am a patient for various years of Dr. Sajjadi he has attended me very good, I am very appreciative of him.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

This was my first visit and the provider was excellent. Glad to have him as doctor.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Doctor seemed to rush through my appointment which was unusual and different from past visits. I like this doctor and he has the expertise in his field. This appointment evaluation is an exception to previous visits.
