    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Dr. Zargar and his entire team make you feel welcome and relaxed at a time when you usually (at least myself) feel like crying. He put me at ease and explained to me the potential options and how each one would eventuate. Once we found what the issue affecting me was, I felt an incredible relief. Both his nurse and the Dr himself contacted me to follow up and ensure I was doing well. I definitely highly recommend the entire team of Dr Zargar!
