Giving Dr Amir 5 stars doesn’t do him justice. His knowledge and bedside manner is truly phenomenal. I was terrified to get a root canal. As long as Dr Amir is around, I’ll never be afraid again. This is the Endodontist you want to be treated by.

Dr Azar is a phenomenal endodontist. I was in agony from a botched root canal and he diagnosed the problem and fixed me right up. He continued to check up on me for days before and after the procedure. We need more doctors like him, seriously!

A family member has a disability and Dr. Azarpazhooh's knowledge and excellent communication skills allow him to treat my family when many others would not. If you need a dental consult I respectfully suggest you have a consultation with Dr. Azarpazhooh as he is very well versed in his profession, and has a very patient centred attitude when it comes to communicating with his patients.

I saw Dr. Azar and he relieved me from pain with empathy. His diagnosis was accurate and he was very comforting.

I saw this Dr. for a consult. He was extremely rude, confrontational and argumentative. Any time I experienced pain and reacted to it pulling my face away, or jumping (anyone experiencing tooth pain will understand the sharp pain and sensitivity to a tooth) he would abruptly stop working and lecture me about how he cant make a diagnosis unless he does the tests. I am aware you need to do an exam but I cannot control my bodies reaction to pain. He would aggressively challenge me on whether I believed this was unnecessary and if I felt he was hurting me on purpose. He spoke so RUDELY to me that I ended the consult. Not on his ability to preform the task but how argumentative and rude he was. He was abusive in his role and even tried to intimidate me into enduring the painful testing citing his medical achievements, his head of endodontics at Mount Sinai and how he teaches dr's and how can I question him that he himself was cancelling the consult and I could go get a second opinion. I had not received the first opinion at this point. I sat through 4 moments of his lecture when the fifth one happened and he started to be abusive in his role I said we are done here and left the exam room. I am a human being and I deserve to be treated with respect and compassion. You are working on living people not machines.
