I would like to think I made an error on one of the questions. I put a one and everything should have been a 4. I apologize for that. The doctor was great. Very, very good doctor. I have to drive a long way to get there, but I don't mind driving because he's a great doctor. Thank you so much. And God bless your whole staff. Thank you.

The MA was really rude and walk out on me, because I didn't fill the paperwork correctly. Instead of her exposing how to fill it out she got frustrated, turned around and as she was walking out she said she was getting the office manager. The office manager was kind and explained things to me as well as the doctor. This is the first time I experience such a thing in this doctor's office. The doctor has always been amazing and continues to be sympathetic towards my condition and my needs.

This is my first time to Dr. Rastegar's office. The staff was wonderful they're amazing as was Dr. Rastegar. It was my first time seeing him and I'm very happy since I lost Dr. Malvis since he retired. So I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Rastegar is a pain specialist. He was excellent.

I have been so disappointed with my previous pain doctor at another facility when I found Dr. Rastegar, I was a little bit hesitant because of my prior experiences but I was greatly surprised to find him to be very helpful, knowledgeable, very friendly along with his staff as well, I felt comfortable and I felt that he actually cared and was concerned about me and my pain.

I love Dr Rastegar but it takes 2 months to get appt and then I was there 30 mins before I saw him. When I do talk to him I appreciate his expertise and understanding.
