The compassionate and absolutely stellar level of care that Dr. Naini has provided me has left me moved beyond words, and profoundly grateful such that I believed it warranted a second 5-star rating from me in under a month of being under her care! Beyond providing me with her expert guidance and attention, she also went above and beyond to reach out to my other expert care providers to communicate and ensure that there is consensus on findings, next steps, and on the treatment plan moving forward. That level of attention and care towards their patient is completely unrivaled per my experience thus far with receiving medical care. Thank you so very much, Dr. Naini!
