If I could rate Dr Latifi higher, I would. He was as interested in listening to my experiences as he was in telling me about my test results. I couldn't be more impressed with him. It was well worth the trip to Cleveland. Dr Latifi is an incredible doctor.

No chance to compare the service from Cleveland Clinic to anyone I had ever dealt with. From the girl who first answered the phone, to the valet, to the receptionist at the doctor's office to the Doctor himself. EVERYONE was great. Better than Disney World!!!

Giving a 6 to Dr Latifi is an extreme under statement. Dr. Latifi would and should get all 100s and excellents if that were an option. Dr Latifi is knowledgeable, empathetic, kind, he listens, and he cares. He truly is the kind of doctor you would see on old television shows, like Marcus Welby, where the patient care is crucial.

The young woman who scheduled our appointment was very patient and helpful. We weren't sure exactly what kind of doctor was right for us-she listed and directed us to Dr Latifi. We didn't have to wait long for the appointment either.

Dr Latifi spent more time than I ever would have imagined with me. He reassured me there was hope for recovery. I was able to understand what the problem is - he drew me pictures and made sure I knew what was the root of my problem and how to treat it. He explained why my medications weren't working and informed me of all the benefits and potential risks of new medications. I felt better that first night and was able to sleep the entire night without coughing for the first time in months. Dr Latifi called me twice to follow up and make sure I was feeling better.

Dr Latifi is Outstanding. Fantastic bed side manner.
