The doctor was very nice and helpful. I don't like the parking situation and had to wait in a line of cars to exit! I don't think it is right to charge senior citizens to park their car for a doctor appointment.

February 25, 2021
I consider myself extremely lucky to have found this doctor. However he came highly recommended and referred.
February 25, 2021
I have no complaint with the doctor. I am not happy with the waiting room. Chairs are not roped off to ensure a safe distance between patients, pens and other equipment patients must touch are not sanitized. There are far too many opportunities for germs to be passed to patients, all of which could be easily fixed. I do have a complaint with the way PIH is handling patient safety during the pandemic. Patients are screened in the lobby of the Wells Building, causing crowding and people standing very close to each other. A mask is provided and a pea-sized drop of hand sanitizer, which truthfully is useless. Then staff and patients crowd into the elevators. No one monitors the number of people allowed to enter or provides safe distance exiting of the elevators. When wheelchairs were used they were not sanitized. The machines used to pay your new parking fees are not sanitized between users and the fact you would even install parking fees during this pandemic also speaks loudly about your concern for your patients. PIH advertises they are concerned for patients health during this pandemic. Your actions say otherwise.
February 25, 2021
The attention of Dr. Rounaghi and all his staff has always been excellent. He has treated me and my wife and we are very satisfied with him.

I really enjoy speaking with Dr. Rounaghi here consummate professional doctor. However when I make an appointment for a third time, say 9 o'clock and I have to wait 45 to 15 minutes in a room waiting for him. I feel that my time is not appreciated.

Dr. Rounaghi is an excellent orthopedic doctor who has great bedside manners. He listens to his patient's concern. He is working with me to resolve my health problems which includes a torn left miniscus and cervical spondylosis with radiculopathy. Physical Therapy is helping and MRI's of both my cervical spine and left arm may reveal more detail which is causing some numbness and tingling feelings in my left arm and hand. He is very thorough and is not a doctor who pushes you into surgery but instead takes a conservative approach and uses surgery as a last option!
