Dr. Motaghi was highly recommended by another doctor. I met with him only once. He recommended an MRI for my pain problem. I am hoping that he'll be able to get to the problem of my lumbar pain problem. So, everything still remains to be seen but he sounds like he's a good doctor.

DR Motaghi is an excellent provider. We have a great deal of confidence that he will give [...] the best treatment if needed, the best explanation about what is happening to her damaged vertebra and the best way to deal with it.

Dr. Motaghi, came in to meet me for first time at this appointment. He was informative and ordered xrays to treat me. He actually found a fracture in my neck I didn't even know I had and I'm grateful he did. I will gladly go see him again.

This was a follow-up appointment. At this time I won't need any further care from Dr. Motaghi but when my hip heals and I have further back pain he recommends me call for an appointment. He listened to my concerns and was very helpful.

The doctor seemed to be very rushed during the visit. He was direct and to the point, which is fine, but did not really offer opportunity for questions. The MRI he ordered was much more informative and I do have a follow up apt with him [...] to see what the findings are and hopefully get some answers.

I thought this doctor was quite thorough in his explanation of my problem and what options I had to try to help it.

02/19/2019
I have had back issues and multiple MRIs throughout the years to try to figure out what is wrong and where the pain is coming from. Dr. Motaghi is the first doctor that has asked me to point to where I am hurting and felt where my issues were. Previous docs have never actually touched where I was hurting, so did not get a good read on where the pain was truly coming from. I am pleased that Dr. Motaghi may have the correct spot and I will be getting a shot in my SI joint [...].

Very good explanation and viewing of MRI results. Did not discuss exrays taken previously, but the MRI covered the spinal issues completely. [...]

Dr Motaghi ordered a MRI and it was completed when I called back to obtain and appointment to have Dr Motaghi to go over the results I was not given an appointment till [...] about 2 1/2 weeks out.I ask to be put on a wait list and said I could come within an hours notice I guess my expectations would have been if I could not get in for test results then I would have been given a call with instead with no explanation of the results from my provider my results showed up in my K chart and there I was left to try to decipher them my selfI felt very uncomfortable having results that looked concerning and not able to opportunity to feel comfortable till I came inI would have felt better at least having a phone callI would have still come in for a follow up

visit with Dr. was very short. Seemed somewhat in a hurry to get through things and be done. Not always the case, but was this day.

I needed a little more time. The doctor came in with a plan to combat my concerns. After I left I realized I forgot to tell him about numb legs. He came in the room & was fast, friendly & courteous. I spent maybe 3 minutes with him.

Worst doctor/specialist I have ever seen! so rude! cold and emotionless! no empathy what so ever for the pacient.

10/30/2018
Dr has always given me the best of care in the past. He seemed rushed and didn't speak to me about options or other treatments available. I will see him again if needed as he always took good care of me in the past.I realize everyone has off days once in awhile.
