Dr. Ghafourian is a well rounded professional...highly clinically competent and genuinely kind and caring. He has supported me in a watchful and concerned way since my very first visit with him, years ago now, to the present time. I would not want to be without him on my care team.I value his nurses as well. They have changed over the years and each one is as great as their predecessor.

I receive comprehensive, medically expert, professional and friendly care from my cardiology team of Dr. Kambiz Ghaforuian and his nurse Mitzi and Dr. Alexandru Chicos and his nurse Katrina and whoever may be aiding them behind the scenes that I am unaware of.They have been supporting me since the onset of my illness, 5+ years ago, and I have realized amazing, unbelievable results, for which I am so grateful! It has not been easy, there have been very difficult times, caused by my disease, and they have been kind and caring and uplifting throughout. I would not want to endure my health adventure without them and their expertise.Everyone related to Blum Cardiovascular is superior...from the clinicans to the concierge on the clinic floor (I forget his name but he is so upbeat, professional and kind, always ready with a smile and a nice word) to the schedulers on the phone (very courteous, respectful and helpful). Wait times to reach a scheduler have increased noticably, understandably as the current health crisis (Covid-19) has changed many things in our world. This is not even worth mentioning; I only do so for the purpose of being comprehensive in my feedback. I offered a 9 rating vs. a 10 only because my personal philosphy is that nothing is perfect...but my cardiology team is a close as it gets! I value and appreciate them highly.
