Dr. Golzar is very knowledgeable and a considerate physician. He explained everything regarding my upcoming procedure.

It took much much longer for provider to see me usually I am at the office for an hour at least this time it almost 2 hours before I left & got down stairs.

Reviewed on July 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Golzar and his nurse have been responsive to our concerns about care, procedures and medications. It was initially difficult but once we were on the same page, and both patient portals (old & new) were introduced it has helped tremendously in them understanding & responding to my concerns and working out solutions. I am sad X stwon't be his nurse and hope to have the same (or even better) relationship with his staff.

My name is X and I am the daughter and POA of X. I have been managing my mother's health care since 2015. I schedule her appointments and go with her to see her Advocate Care Team generally once per year. I really like Dr. Golzar and think he's an excellent Cardiologist but he is a very busy man. In the past I've tried to discuss the amount of medications my mother is on (she went from almost no medications post 2015 to 14 medications after 2015). This was partly due to her Dementia diagnosis, being hospitalized for a kidney stone followed by rehab. I was learning how to be her advocate but find it difficult to completely express my concerns when our visit is fairly restricted to 15-20 min. Only recently have I begun to feel that I am being heard about my concerns regarding the amount of medication my mother takes. Dr. Golzar's nurses have been working with me while keeping him in the loop.
