My doctor had a very pleasant demeanor and seemed to listen to my concerns and addressed them before a final decision was made about my care plan.
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2019
I like that *Dr. Sabzpoushan didn't talk down to me. I hate it when doctors feel like they have to talk to you like a child, putting everything in the simplest way possible. *Dr. S. talked to me as an adult.

Dr. Seb's command of English could use some work. Overall, I get what he is saying, but because he seems to search for words, it leaves me less confident in my understanding.

Dr. Sabzpoushan was easy to talk to and took the time to describe what options where available to me.

  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
We've only had two meetings. At the first a year ago, he spent a lot of time discussing aspects of my job. This year, knowing that, I steered the conversation to keep it on track. I felt he should be leading the conversation, e.g. besides showing me the charts depicting the results of my sleep program to provide more evaluation than I'm doing very well, e.g. what does each part mean. On the follow-up care, I asked about whether I should have another sleep study, he didn't suggest e.g., then said that it's usually every 10 years and my last and only one was 13 years ago. I think that as the sleep expert that he should be leading.

Amir saved my life. I have already referred my friends to him.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
He is amazing. We had just seen the heart doctor and I mentioned that I needed to check on some meds re Lewy Body Dementia as they were on the "no" list. Dr. Amir has worked with Lewy Body Dementia and is very knowledgeable about the meds was able to discuss them with me. He also is very familiar with cardio pulmonary rehab and gave me some info to talk to my provider about. He is a most amazing doctor. I have Dementia and he is aware and helpful. I asked if he could turn my C pap down and he explained the whole procedure to me.
