Dr.Attarian is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He is a rarity in thebhealthcare industry as he has great bedside manner and compassion. I have medical trauma so I have a hard time trusting and interacting with doctors but he makes me feel comfortable and like he really cares about me and my life. He is very knowledgeable. He always understands my concerns and answers any questions I have in a complete and easy to understand way. He is very available for questions between visits. I really just cant say enough good things about him and his office. I am grateful he is my doctor and I dont think I would be doing as good as i am without him.

Dr Attarian always actually listens and treats me and my issues with the utmost respect and always looks for a different solution if the first or “common” or “typical” solution doesn’t fit the proverbial mold. He responds directly when possible to mychart messages and shows true compassion while utilizing his expertise to solve difficult situations. Definitely treats the patient and their needs as an individual and doesn’t take a “cookie cutter” approach. He is appreciated.
