Amir is great. Really appreciate his professionalism, patience and openness to questions.
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2020
Dr. Amir was so friendly, so helpful, so encouraging!
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2020
He was so pleased with my treatment, that it took several attempts to clearly state my concerns. He repeatedly said that I was within the normal range, even though I am still experiencing disruptions to my quality of life. Eventually, he did recommend a treatment plan to address my concerns.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
He tells you results of test but unless probed with questions he will not tell you any extra information. If you don't know what to ask then there is a potential of not getting all the information you need to fully take care of yourself. This doctor does not have the heart of a teacher at all.

Dr Amir Sabzpoushan is an excellent physicians. He is the most knowledgeable of al Sleep Disorder Physician in 30 years of diagnostic and treatment of my sleep apnea disorder. He is sincerely empathetic and shows great respect for me as his patient. He has a very pleasant manner and personality.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
Have already referred many people to him
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
He is very amiable, but it's difficult to get him to discuss specifics. At the end of each visit I wonder why it was necessary as I do not feel I have any more information than when I arrived.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2020
Discussions were awkward and I am unable to understand why an in-lab sleep test is necessary or desirable.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
Great experience will highly recommend TeleHealth when it can be used. Dr Sabzpoushen is the best! He asks good questions and listens well to my responses. We discussed an action plan, and an in-person visit upon my return to Seattle to try a different mask type for my CPAP.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
Always a good experience with *Dr. Amir.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
Never went over any risks involved or side effects, so that would've been helpful. Appointments have felt a little rushed, and when you are brand new to sleep apnea and having to get a CPAP, having a more comprehensive meeting would've been nice.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
Have recommended him to several people already
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
Very much liked the doctor, he explained things very well.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
I will be recommending this care to family members. I appreciated the candid and honesty opinions and suggestions about my treatment and potential treatment changes.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
Care providers really listened to my concerns and asked me if I had any other concerns.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2020
I felt that he was only meeting with me to eventually put me into a CPAP machine for insomnia. He did not really ask about what I had tried before to deal with my problem. He based his decision to put me into a sleep study was due to my "small opening' in the back of my throat, which could ONLY mean that I was snorer and therefore in need of a CPAP. I thought the appointment was very perfunctory, and not at all geared toward what I needed/wanted to accomplish.

*Dr. Sabzpoushan is an excellent provider. He listened to my concerns, then helped me by having his tech set my bi-pap to auto on. This has made a world of difference for me to get a good night's sleep.
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2020
