I love this place!!
June 01, 2022
Dr. Hooshvar is great. It's very important to me that I have an established professional relationship that I can discuss my concerns with a Dr. that listens very well. Her staff is great and courteous.
May 24, 2022
Dr. Hooshvar was great, she was able to answer all my questions and made me feel comfortable during my exam.
May 19, 2022
I came to ER after extreme loss of blood due to a miscarriage. The nurse at the PIH office did not take my concerns of heavy bleeding seriously and so I got dangerously close to bleeding to death. The ER team did a great job helping my blood pressure stabilize and giving me fluids. The first doctor came in and gave me a pelvic exam. I believe I passed the baby at this time but I was not fully conscious so I can't be sure. There was a second Doctor came in and gave me the option to get a DNC or go home and pass the remainder naturally. I believe his shift was over soon so I felt pressure to make a quick decision and my husband and only allowed visitor had stepped out for a few minutes. The Doctor did not thoroughly explain the pros and cons of the DNC vs having everything pass on its own. I ended up going home to pass everything naturally. I have been bleeding every day since which I am told by my Doctor is normal. I also was not given very thorough care instructions for going home and almost passed out the following day going to and from the bathroom and ended up back in ER with a very low blood count. I am not sure if I failed to ask more questions or if the Doctor assumed I knew the kind of care I would need? I also did not know that my blood pressure was dangerously low for over an hour and that I almost died. I believe if I had known more of what happened to me, I would not have had to be in ER the next day. I really could have used better explanation of not only what happened to be in the ER, but how to care for myself after going home.

Hey, listen to me and everybody was real nice, good personality and they don't need to go through it because of their personality. So everybody was nice and they listened to me. Thank you.
May 06, 2022
It was quick and easy. I appreciated that they also provided me with referrals for what I need to get done.
May 06, 2022
I just wanted to thank the doctor that she really took the time to look at my medical records. And ask questions and instead, what my comfort level is, especially given my previous experience with another OBG. I really look forward to continue to work with this doctor.
May 05, 2022
I'm a (INAUDIBLE) new patient with Dr. Hooshvar. And I have found her to be very excellent. The staff there is awesome. And I recommended her now to my family members. So, thank you very much. Bye. Bye.
May 05, 2022
It was too hot in the office. Fans weren't on either.
April 29, 2022
Dr. Hooshvar is ABSOLUTELY amazing! She was so personable, caring, and genuine. Very knowledgeable, super informative, and compassionate. She takes her time and doesn't rush you, which makes you heard and cared for. I am so grateful to have found her and have already recommended her to my family and friends.
April 28, 2022
I was very comfortable with my visit, I feel the Doctor was very thorough and the staff were wonderful in getting a same day appointment!
April 25, 2022
Dr. Hooshvar spent less than 5 minutes with me. She came in mentioned my weight and left. I have high risk pregnancy complicated by age and hyperthyroidism. My baby was also recently diagnosed with a deformity that could affect his growth. None of this was discussed or even touched upon at my appointment. This the first and last time I will schedule my OB appointment with her. I do not trust her care nor do I feel that my baby is safe in her care.
April 20, 2022
There shouldn't be more than 1 urine Sample in the little closet door at a time. Like kinda, only thing that I didn't like.
April 20, 2022
I felt that she didn't really spend much time with me, didn't really listen. Kind of was like in a hurry. I've never had a woman's. Well check up that fast in my life. Yeah. It was kind of different. And the office desk to there's like no everybody looks like they were in a bad mood or something because nobody really smile. Nobody greeted. Nobody is, you know, it was just pretty cut and dry in that office. I don't think I'll be using her again. Thanks.
April 11, 2022
Hi, this is (PHI removed). I was very, very, very, very satisfied with the doctor and the staff and everything. It was my excellent experience, and I would definitely like to go back and back again whenever I need it, and I think that's it. I was very very happy with all the experience. Thank you very much. Bye.
April 11, 2022
The doctor was so nice so patient and really knew how to treat my problem. Thank you so much for having her on staff. She was so exceptional
April 06, 2022
I would like to thank you for the medical assistant. I'm not 100% sure her name is (name removed). She's been working for PH for quite some time. She is very professional to review my history before talk to me. So even though she's just a medical assistant, but she I think she did a wonderful job.
March 21, 2022
Dr. Hooshvar is very polite, knowledgeable and efficient. Perhaps she is desensitized to how many patients she sees daily and therefore is not as gentle and sensitive as she could be. I am certain she is an excellent physician but the lack of wanting to truly connect or address uncertainty of a new process with me as a patient really made the difference for me.
March 07, 2022
She was a strait shooter in what I needed. She hear ALL my concerns and we worked together to find a solution.
March 07, 2022
The Dr was amazing, she offered advice to my concerns and reassured me that I shouldn't be nervous.
March 07, 2022
It was a first visit with Dr H. and my first well woman's exam in 5 years so I was a little apprehensive but she was very professional yet gentle with me too I was very pleased with this visit
March 02, 2022
the front desk lady was not very nice and very unpleasant over the phone. I think she was new because she was asking for help when I got there the next day however, was extremely unpleasant and not personable. I think her name was Ileana or something that started with an I.
February 25, 2022
Wonderful bedside manner. Overall, had a great experience and I would love to see this provider in my next visit.
February 23, 2022
I have been to different medical offices this year and this has been the first time I got the answer to my question and I felt like Dr Hooshvar listened and cared about my concerns.
February 18, 2022
Thank you for the great experience. The doctor explained everything in detail. Thank you for taking care of me.
February 18, 2022
Always a great experience at PIH. I was able to move up my appointment sooner that same day. I had a bind with forgetting my wallet and had to pay for parking ticket. The front desk associate helped me, giving me money to pay for it. Her name is (name removed), she's in suite 303. Truly appreciative. I love PIH.
February 18, 2022
She was super friendly and answered all of Our questions. Made us feel super comfortable
February 10, 2022
I accidentally pressed 1 for the service that I received through this doctor, but it was a 4. On every answer.
February 10, 2022
There was a small feeling of being rushed but I know doctors have such busy days.
February 09, 2022
Yes, I would recommend it, it was very professional, she treated me with a lot of respect, dedication, and I feel very satisfied with her, and I would recommend her, thank you very much, doctor.
February 09, 2022
Thanks to Dr. Hooshvar for the time and listening she provided to me. Greatly appreciate her support.
February 04, 2022
[name removed] front staff was not very friendly and was sassy. My medication that I was taking was discontinued so the pharmacy asked me to. Call and have it switched to something else. When I called [name removed] said that couldn't be done and I'd need to be seen I told her my schedule was very busy could she please just ask the Dr she said no you have to be seen. So I said ok when can you get me in she said the following week I said well I'm out of medication and I need to be seen sooner and she said ok I can get you in tomorrow at 2:30 I said ok. I then said I'm not trying yo give you a hard time I'm just overwhelmed right now, and she said well you are ?. My story my husband of 30 years passed away I take care of my mother in law that requires 24 hour care because she has dementia and self hurts I have 3 children 2 that are still in school. I have to arrange for someone to watch Grandma pick up and watch my boys and sometimes that's a difficult task especially on a Friday at such short notice. She does know this but I didn't feel the need to explain I needed my medication but I felt like she didn't even try and help me. I've been coming to your office for over 27 years and have never felt so hurt ? treated so unprofessional or without care. It was shared with me that this office is going through a hard time because of some loss by [name removed]. So I guess that was her answer or excuse for the behavior I received. It wasn't acceptable. I just thought I'd share with you what I experienced because it didn't make me feel good and I felt uncomfortable coming into your office. If you'd like to discuss this more please call me at [PHI removed] Thank you [PHI removed]

January 27, 2022
I am saying "mostly" because I am probably not remembering everything about the experience in detail.
January 26, 2022
Dr Hooshvar is an amazing provider and really takes the time to listen to you during your appointment. I would highly recommend her to family and friends. She has great bedside manner and is very trustworthy and respectful.

I don't like having to pay parking. It used to not be a pay lot now it is.
December 09, 2021
I love seeing dr each year, she makes me feel very comfortable to ask her anything i may be concerned with. i really do appreciate that she remembers her patients even when i come in once a year. Very comforting feeling. Thank you again
December 02, 2021
I very much appreciate that the office called me to remind me I was due for my exam. I had just been wondering when it was due. Great that they keep track of that and call patients. I very much like Dr Hooshvar and her staff were all very nice. What I found to be severely lacking was any hand hygiene by the doctor or staff. Alcohol rub is right at the door to exam room as you walk in and the dr nor [name removed] (her jacket said) did not use on the way in or out. yuck. There's also a sink in the room! The blood pressure cuff and stethoscope used to check BP was not cleaned before use and not in my presence after. Possibly it was cleaned before my arrival, but by the way it was hanging untidily I do not suspect it was. The use of BP cuffs repeatedly is an ongoing issue for PIH as they do the same thing in their ER.

Front desk very friendly Doctor was absolutely wonderful, caring, listened Highly recommend her
November 12, 2021
First visit with this doctor. She was very imformative
November 11, 2021
She was excellent. I don't think I got this survey for the orthopedist....that was horrible. You need more Dr. Hooshvars!!!!
November 05, 2021
The IUD insertion was extremely painful for me, but the doctor and staff showed me much kindness and respect. Thank you Dr. Hooshvar and everyone else that had to put up with my crying and hyperventilating!!!
November 05, 2021
I was a patient of Dr. Peter Roca for many years. When I learned Dr. Roca was retiring it was bitter sweet. Ive never know another doctor quite like him. He is an extraordinary man! Although this was only my second visit with Dr. Nina Hooshvar I felt that same comfortable and caring feeling that I once had with Dr. Roca. I very much appreciated that my wait time for Dr Hooshvar was very minimal.
November 05, 2021
Dr. Hooshvar is such a fantastic person. She had helped me when I had an ovarian cyst and helped me with my concerns and now having a baby. I'm so happy that I have have met her and the staff has been great!
November 03, 2021
Everything was smooth, very knowledgeable doctor, first time visit. I recommend her highly.
November 01, 2021
Excellent provider.
October 29, 2021
The physician sat on the opposite side corner of the exam room. It was somewhat understandable due to Covid, However, it felt uncomfortable too. My hearing is not very clear, I did not want her to repeat the dialogue over. I did state I am compliant with the Covid injections.
October 29, 2021
During my visit I felt comfortable and listened to, Dr. Hooshvar was excellent she is one of a kind. Thank you for a great experience during my visit.
October 28, 2021
I could have used a few more minutes of her time for questions but she was absolutely wonderful
October 28, 2021
Dr. Hooshvar was wonderful and the staff was very courteous. The only concern is that the process of the appointment is slow. If you need an appointment, get a referral paper, then stand in line and make an appointment. Need labs, print out paper, take it to the lab. It would be faster if it were paperless, and if all departments shared information.
October 15, 2021
My experience was great. I liked how the doctors explained the different options of birth control.
October 14, 2021
Dr. Hooshvar is a wonderful physician. Very patient, kind informative. If she doesn't have the the answer to a question she'll research it to find it. Very thorough and I would recommend her services to anyone.
October 12, 2021
Dr. Hooshvar was very thorough in her exam and explanation of recommendations. This was a first meeting with her since my previous OB/GYN retired.
October 08, 2021
Rare doctor took time to explain things and listened.
October 04, 2021
First time meeting her and she was a delight. Listened to my thoughts and feelings and was caring. I'd go back to see her which I am the next appointment.
