Patient Reviews

September 16, 2022
It was good to see the doctor except, except ,it took a long time to get to see him. I would imagine he had many patients ahead, I don't know. But anyways, he was a very good doctor. I just thought it was a long time that I had to wait to see him. That's it. Thank you.
September 16, 2022
Very respectful and listened to my physical problems. He is very professional. I recommended him. Thank you.
September 13, 2022
Dr. Amirpour was very professional. He listened to all my concerns and questions. He spent time explaining my condition with me and explained about the medication that will help me. I was very happy with my visit with him.
September 12, 2022
Dr Amirpour is excellent in every way. He showed my on his tablet what my recent thyroid scan revealed, explaining everything very clearly. He responded to my questions including logging in to show me my previous thyroid doctor's notes from my 2014 biopsy and 2015 and 2017 follow-up notes. He recommended my next scan take place in one year and explained his reasons why. Highly recommend him.
September 01, 2022
My experience with my provider was excellent very knowledgeable. Always listened, I feel very confident with this provider, the only downfall is, the scheduling of appointment time is usually very difficult to do and around my schedule. However, once you're in and scheduled with the provider, he's really, he's great. So I really recommend this provider.
August 31, 2022
Staff was friendly.
August 30, 2022
Looking forward to my next appointment.
August 26, 2022
The Dr. appointments are very spaced and lack availability. Other than that, great staff and Dr.
August 23, 2022
I was taken on time... treated with respect.... Dr spent time talking to me and answered all questions...
August 18, 2022
The nurse (name removed) is the best,she gave me a copy of my prior authorization for my medication,to show to cvs I could get my medication,this really helped me at my pharmacy.
August 18, 2022
Front office staff could be friendlier and be more courteous when asking for information. Also limit how long it takes for them to call you back to set up an appointment or even call you back or answer emails through the portal.
August 16, 2022
I don't like being put In room have my blood pressure taken and then left to sit there for 20 minutes
August 15, 2022
Dr. Amirpour recommended a new prescription for me, but unfortunately the office has not returned the 6 calls from my pharmacist. I'm not too sure what the issue is there and then I called the office and was told by one of the staff members that it could sometimes take them up to a week, to respond to calls from the pharmacy. And, and this I don't think is a very good. I I really think that when the doctor recommend something, he wants his patient to start taking the medication ASAP and that has not happened in this case. I don't know whether it's miscommunication or what, but I would really appreciate it. If somebody would call my

Great doctor. Always discusses everything very thoroughly and make sure that we know our next steps and what we need to do to improve my health condition.
August 10, 2022
Appointments are difficult to get (booked very far out in advance).

Thank you very much for all the help provided.

Most satisfying

Great experience
July 29, 2022
Doctor Amirapour was very kind. Unfortunately, I had some difficulty understanding him with his mark on. I'm sure it would have been easier without a mark. However, I do appreciate PIH physicians and staff doing all they can to keep their self and their patients safe.
July 22, 2022
Dr. Amirpour, is an excellent listener & provided ample time for the office visit. Dr., focused on my treatment as a new patient, I also have confidence that once and for all, I will get my diabetes under control.
July 19, 2022
Doctor was great at the time, but I wish he got back to me about my results and prescription is a timely manner. I had to call the office three times and only received a response after the third time which was over a week from when I first called about my test results being released. I felt like the follow up on my results and prescription should have been a lot faster and I shouldn't have had to call 3 times and wait over a week.
July 12, 2022
The Dr was extremely courteous. Explained everything well. Took time to hear my issues. Wonderful Dr.
July 08, 2022
I like the fact that he took time with you.

June 06, 2022
Dr. Amirpour seemed genuinely interested in all of my health issues, including my diabetic, kidney and thyroid issues. He is a very good listener and understood and thoroughly addressed all of my health-related concerns.

Difficult to reach office staff by phone
June 01, 2022
Yes. My provider was always sensitive, listen to me, and I'm very happy. Thank you.
May 24, 2022
This doctor listen to me very intently and registered what I meant and even gave me 4 or 5 ideas to improve my health by changing this from eating things.
May 09, 2022
I would just like to say that I really liked Dr. Amirpour. He explianedy everything and answered all my questions. The nurses that work with him were all very nice.
May 04, 2022
This visit to Dr. Amirpour was my first. I was impressed by the amount of time he spent with me. I did not feel rushed during our conversation, he listened to my health history, asked pertinent questions, and listened well. I'm happy to have begun this new medical relationship with him. One of the best experiences I've had with a doctor in a very long time.
April 25, 2022
LVN (name removed) very informative and friendly as well as physician.
April 20, 2022
I love how patient he was and really seemed concerned about what I was feeling and with what I had to say.
April 20, 2022
The provider is very nice and patience . Although it's my first time follow up with him. I'll like my next appointment with him again ?
April 15, 2022
The doctor is very personable and genuinely seemed to care about my health.
April 05, 2022
I was very happy with the way he paid attention to what I was saying. And he was very patient and so was the assistant. And so as the receptionist. So I was very... very happy with the whole thing. Thank you.
April 05, 2022
I find it wrong that I had to pay for parking, especially if I had been seen in a timely manner it would've not cost me anything but anything over half an hour you have to pay
March 24, 2022
Excellent listener. I just wish that he was less busy. You must schedule way in advance.
March 23, 2022
This was the first time I seen this doctor and I was very comfortable and he was very polite and he explained everything that I can get at this point and I was really satisfied
March 21, 2022
I didn't get seen till about 40 Minutes after my appt time. I wasn't notified of a delay.
March 18, 2022
this doctor was new for me and I was satisfied with the experience
March 15, 2022
Dr. Amirpour was great! But since (name removed) was my doctor to begin with, I don't like being passed from Doctor to doctor- because he is too busy to see me! But, this is not any reflection on Dr. Amirpour - he was wonderful!
March 14, 2022
Thorough easy to understand information and instructions and
March 14, 2022
Dr. Amirpour was very attentive. Spent plenty of time with me and showed a genuine caring for the Patients health, so I would recommend them. Highly. Thank you.
March 02, 2022
Dr amirpour was great with my mom . (name removed) the MA was amazing !
March 02, 2022
The physician appears to...to be good, but there is somewhat of a language problem still. So, that's the only problem I had with him. A nice fellow, nice demeanor, but language needs to be improved.
February 25, 2022
Good service
February 22, 2022
Hi. Yes, I just wanted to say I highly recommend him. The first part of the survey I was not able... I thought 1 meant yes and 2 was no. So I kept on putting 1 for yes. So that's why the ones are there. I meant to say, yes I liked him, and those were meant to be positive. They were meant to be all fours. All my ones in the beginning of the survey was supposed to be all fours. Thank you.
February 15, 2022
MD Amirpour and (name removed) MA are a great team They make sure instructions are clear and thoroughly and provided documentation plus telephone assistance as needed we are greatly surprised by the wide knowledge plus being bilingual is a plus. Salutations on an outstanding performance you guys are great asset and an example of professionalism in our community. You are the greatest went above and beyond on our expectations.
February 15, 2022
He made me feel like he truly cared about my health and was going to do everything he could to help me reach the goals we set for me to have a better health. He listened attentively and questioned things I said so he was completely sure he understood what I was trying to explain to him. I left his office feeling confident that I am being well taken care of and not just another "number". He reassured me that he was going to do everything he could to help me feel better. No other doctor has done that. I am very pleased with his service.
February 02, 2022
I felt like this provider didn't take me serious or my concerns serious enough. I felt like I needed to prove myself to be worthy of his help.
January 27, 2022
The doctor i seen was new to me, he was very hard to understand because of his language !!
January 25, 2022
Excellent service Thank you
January 11, 2022
I "met" with Dr. Amirpour by phone. He was professional, informative and answered my questions.
January 10, 2022
The day started off very bad. I originally had an appointment with Dr. Mahmoud in Santa Fee Springs. After driving there and checking in, I waited for over an hour in the waiting room and was never called. I later find out that the doctor was not even there. If I hadn't been persistent and spoken up I would have been sitting there all day. This was the third appointment because the previous two had been cancelled. I never received any cancellation call, text, or email, for this appointment. They wanted me to sit there and wait another 2 hours to see another doctor. The service I received there was very unprofessional. After I told the receptionist that I was just going to go back home, she arranged for Dr. Amipour to call me later in the day. He was very professional and courteous. In the future, I will make my appointments with him. I hope that I never have to go back to the Santa Fee Springs building again.
January 07, 2022
The doctor treated me perfectly, he listened to me and he had time for me, thank you.
January 05, 2022
I have a tele visit with the doctor on the 5th and I've been waiting for the doctor's orders for the laptop and I still have not heard back from the office yet.
January 03, 2022
Excellent bedside manner. Dr. & Staff were very kind and professional.
December 21, 2021
The reason I gave the responses I did is b/c the dr made general statements about my health but didn't even look at me. Like literally didn't look up from the Laptop to see if what he was saying was really applicable to me and my individual health needs. I saw this provider instead of my usual Dr b/c I missed my labs to make my original appointment. I have the app and really just needed to know if my results were on track, and if my meds needed to be adjusted. He went thru every single test and gave me the results and if normal or not. I can see on the app if it's normal, but I don't know the overall picture of what those tests mean, why they were ordered and if compared to my results from last time better or worse! I am going to my original [name removed] for my next visit in 6 months. Maybe then I will get the clarification I need that I should have gotten from this visit. I'm more than just my lab results.
December 09, 2021
It was a pretty incredible experience w/the Dr & his nurse {removed name}. They both took their time to speak w me very patiently and thoroughly and the wait wasn't even long! I was very impressed by this office.
December 08, 2021
The doctor was very patient please listen to a very carefully and was very attentive and knowledgeable took very good care of us yes, we would definitely stay with him he's a great doctor thank you.
December 03, 2021
Thank you
December 03, 2021
Office response is really slow. Receptionist that picks up phone that is not from that office is not very friendly. The two MA's that are in that office for the doctor are very friendly. Pharmacy wait time's 2 days for response from that doctor's office. So, that's the negative. Positive is that the physician is positive and answers all questions, the staff in his office, the MA's are positive and answer questions. Just slow to get back on Pharmacy responses for needed medication.
December 02, 2021
We waited in the lobby for about 30 to 40 minutes before getting the room and then waited about 30 minutes for the doctor to come in. It's understandable I believe they were real busy. Once he was there we had his undivided attention and here's great concern.
December 01, 2021
Went well very thorough.
November 30, 2021
My experience overall was Awesome...Like always..
November 29, 2021
My experience was excellent. He completely told me the choices and gave me a choice of what I wish to do.
November 24, 2021
The office is totally Inevitably unprofessional. They don't value your patience time. And they really don't give a damn.
November 17, 2021
Dr Amirpour was very thorough and I appreciated the time he spent as this was my first visit with him. His nurse [name removed] was very helpful as well.
November 17, 2021
Dr was very illuminating and professional, dr expressed care and provided information on how to improve my medical condition, dr was very resourceful.
November 17, 2021
Dr Amirpour was excellent. He's very thorough, explained well, listened to me & answered my questions. He's an excellent provider.
November 11, 2021
There should not be parking fee around the building. They only give 30 mins free parking and fee is so expensive. As you know, 30 mins is not enough to stay in doctor's office.
November 11, 2021
Good doctor. Very knowledgeable.
November 08, 2021
This is [PHI removed] and I really like the doctor. He listened to me very well. However, the people who take the messages to give to the doctors, don't really give them the messages or they forget. So there's a problem with getting the messages to the doctors. That's my only problem with the office. But as far as the doctors go, I really like the doctors.
November 02, 2021
The doctor and nursing staff were very attentive and courteous
October 15, 2021
Yeah, that was my first visit with this doctor If it's the endocrinologist on the 15th that I saw, I have so many doctors at this point that I don't remember now, but I'm pretty sure with the endocrinologist. It was my first visit but I recommend them to my family. I don't know, because I haven't been there enough to say yes or no, and that's the reason I put, you know, our lower number on that one, but he was very accurate on everything that we asked him. We were there, 45 minutes with him, he spent 45 minutes with us in the room, my daughter and myself and it was a very nice. I think he's the first specialist that I've seen since I've been hospitalized 8 times, since March of 2021. He's been the one that spent the most time with me, out of all my doctors on seeing and I was very happy with that.
October 08, 2021
In regards to one of the questions asking if I got an appointment as soon as possible. I had marked "No" because I ended up having to resort talking to the office manager to get a sooner appointment. However as soon as I got an available appointment, the office staff, and the quality care of the office staff was excellent.
