I usually am very uncomfortable with a male provider, the MD was very professional and explained the skin check as he went through it. He made me feel very comfortable and I appreciate that!

Dr. Esfahani was very accommodating. He gave my mother some samples and showed tremendous care about my mom. He asked us to call or email so he would know if the prescription he recommended was working. The prescription he ordered was not covered by the insurance. He contacted the insurance and put in a special request. We were able to fill the order the next day. We are truly grateful to him.

My experience with Dr. Esfahani was great! I think it is rare to find a doctor that makes you have confidence in the quality of care you received and I left my appointments feeling confident in my doctors ability to help me. I left feeling educated about my problems and how to handle them moving forward and that I was not just another name on a chart and I was genuinely cared for.
