08/05/14 5 5 5 5 I agree that Dr. Ehsan can seem as though she is disconnected while speaking to you upon your first few visits. Although, she is very caring & thorough once you've developed a Dr./patient relationship with her. PEOPLE listen up! She's human! Give the woman a chance to get to know you and remember she has a lot on her plate as "we all do". No one is perfect.

06/02/14 4 5 4 5 Dr. Ehsan is friendly and polite; she listens carefully and is thorough. I'm new to the area and it's nice to have a doctor who is engaged in my life; she remembers details about me from visit to visit and keeps good notes. Some people have commented that she is cold or seems uncaring, but I disagree. Doctors aren't all outgoing with crazy energetic personalities, but that doesn't mean she's cold. Not everyone is an extrovert!

10/01/14 5 5 5 5 We just moved to Burlington and found that she is taking new patients. We are lucky to find her as she is very thorough and shows interest and empathy towards her patients. I will strongly recommend her to anyone.

06/01/14 2 2 1 2 Dr. Ehsan is part of a huge corporation of doctors and as such seems to work from a business attitude instead of a care giver attitude. She makes me feel as if she is simply tolerating my presence in her office and that I am an inconvenience instead of making me feel as if she cares about the reason I came to see her and that she truly wants to help. Since I am a senior and am starting to have age related problems I am truly disappointed in her care and am considering looking for another doctor.  See Responses

She made me feel very comfortable sharing my health concerns an issues. She was thorough an knowledgable of my conditions. I highly recommend her as a family doctor  Respond

24/11/13 1 2 3 3 The doctor is knowledgeable although she seems to show a lack of interest in your concerns. It almost seems like she really does not want to be there. But she will perform the tests you need done. I found that the staff were not very punctual the phone would always ring and go to the answering machine making it hard to book an appointment. It also wouldn't hurt for them to be more friendly.  Respond

17/05/13 4 1 1 1 She has been replacing my family doctor whose on maternity leave, and it has been a great disappointment. Very cold and careless, who doesn't even look at you or shows interests while you're talking. She made comments which were rude as if I was supposed to be the doctor and know everything. Overall it has been an awful experience, definitely not a kind lady, who doesn't put enough effort since we are not her patients and she's doing a replacement. Doctors also need people skills, to be able to talk to patients and show some level of interest  Respond
