Very professional and had a great bedside manner. He took his time to explain the surgeries and answer any questions I had. Great overall experience with Dr. Behboudi

excellent doctor, I am so lucky to be able to have him as my doctor.

Other than having to wait over an hour, all was good. The nurses were very nice and apologized for the delay. De Behboudi answered all my questions. He is very knowledgeable and kind.

made an appointment easily as I have seen Dr Conflitti numerous times, and Dr Diviney so I was seen within a week of the call to see him. He told me I wasn't a candidate for the surgery and referred me to another Dr at the Azaelia Clinic on Golden road

I expect a lot out of folks here in my fantastic native state of Texas. They did not disappoint in even one way. Minus covid I would've wanted to give some of them a big hug. No exaggerations.
