5.0/5 ()

Dr. Farokhi always shoots straight, even if it's not something you want to hear he makes sure you hear him. I trust him to tell me his honest opinion as to the best way to proceed for the best result.

5.0/5 ()

Dr. Farokhi has been treating me for A-fib. He referred me to Dr. Cable for a Maze Procedure. I had questions after I talked to Dr. Cable on Dr. Farokhi's opinion, and he actually took the time to call Dr. Cable and confer with him, and then personally call me back and tell me his recommendations. I trust his judgement when it comes to my heart.
