Amazing physician and staff! Dr. Zarei always takes the time to explain diagnosis and treatment – to ensure proper patient compliance!
Dr Zarei is very caring, kind, and a very good physician. She takes a detailed history, and takes into account my other current issues. She will follow up, and is very proactive about taking care of you as a person and not just the disease. Will be a patient of hers forever. Her assistant Nerin is amazing as well.
