Dr. Golzar has always been pleasant and takes his time to answer my questions.

February 13, 2020 12:10 PM

My experience with Dr. Golzar was one I never have had such great treatment respect, kindness, and happy results. I was absolutely satisfied and made whole.

February 11, 2020 12:55 PM

Good experience....I have confidence in Dr. Golzar.

February 10, 2020 4:47 PM

I think Dr.Golzaar is wonderful and super knowledgeable about my medical problem.

February 10, 2020 4:47 PM

As a patient I did have to wait a bit to see the doctor but once he enters the room I have his full attention. He is very kind.

February 2, 2020 5:33 AM

Provider is good & addressed my questions. Clerk was told that I came, early hopping to be seen because I had another appt. at Advocate-Burbank. She (clerk) said the dr. was behind in his scheduling & I had come early. She indicated that she would inform the dr. she did not do so until I had waited an hour & then repeated that I had come early. It was frustrating to talk with her.

January 17, 2020 5:55 AM

My experience with my provider is rated in high respect, timing and communication.

January 17, 2020 5:55 AM

Very good to excellent. I say "The World's Best Heart Specialist".

December 27, 2019 11:00 PM

Very good!

December 10, 2019 2:21 PM

He gave his professional opinion on my veins.

December 10, 2019 2:21 PM

Overall a fine experience. The issue of cost & how to pay are the big issues.

December 10, 2019 1:55 PM

Always professional. He takes time and explain exactly what he mean and what I need to do to remain as healthy as possible.

November 18, 2019 3:41 PM

I was very pleased with the whole staff at Dr Golzar's office.

November 18, 2019 3:41 PM

Dr. explained the whole procedure; step by step for the whole process. Very important from a patient's view.

November 13, 2019 11:00 PM

Talked to Dr. Golzar about flu & pneumonia shots for this season. Got both shots at CVS pharmacy later that day. Very happy with Dr. Golzar as my cardiologist. Receptionist asked Medicare questions.

November 12, 2019 6:35 AM

I, too, was impressed by Dr. Golzar and by his opinion and attitude and knowledge of my situation.

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

July 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Golzar is a doctor that cares about you and does his very best to help you feel better.

July 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Golzar is very knowledgeable and a considerate physician. He explained everything regarding my upcoming procedure.

July 10, 2019 7:00 PM

It took much much longer for provider to see me usually I am at the office for an hour at least this time it almost 2 hours before I left & got down stairs.

June 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Golzar and his nurse have been responsive to our concerns about care, procedures and medications. It was initially difficult but once we were on the same page, and both patient portals (old & new) were introduced it has helped tremendously in them understanding & responding to my concerns and working out solutions. I am sad X stwon't be his nurse and hope to have the same (or even better) relationship with his staff.

June 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Golzar is a very caring professional dr.

May 27, 2019 7:00 PM

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

My name is X and I am the daughter and POA of X. I have been managing my mother's health care since 2015. I schedule her appointments and go with her to see her Advocate Care Team generally once per year. I really like Dr. Golzar and think he's an excellent Cardiologist but he is a very busy man. In the past I've tried to discuss the amount of medications my mother is on (she went from almost no medications post 2015 to 14 medications after 2015). This was partly due to her Dementia diagnosis, being hospitalized for a kidney stone followed by rehab. I was learning how to be her advocate but find it difficult to completely express my concerns when our visit is fairly restricted to 15-20 min. Only recently have I begun to feel that I am being heard about my concerns regarding the amount of medication my mother takes. Dr. Golzar's nurses have been working with me while keeping him in the loop.

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

Good visit!!!

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

This was a one time visit with this doctor which was excellent.

November 6, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Golzar is very helpful and thorough in explaining my condition. He has a good bed/chair-side manner.

November 3, 2018 7:00 PM

very professional and courteous

October 2, 2018 7:00 PM

I have never had a reception that I had with my first visit to the Advocate Medical Group. They made me feel so comfortable in a situation where I am normally nervous and tense.

September 30, 2018 7:00 PM

I love my doctor he saved my life he is the best and has the best help ever I am very grateful.

August 13, 2018 7:00 PM

it was a very good visit, the doctor was very courteous and explained things very well to me.

July 16, 2018 7:00 PM

He is a very good doctor, I like him very much.

June 5, 2018 7:00 PM

The clerk, assistant and the doctor were all helpful, kind and timely.

May 14, 2018 7:00 PM

I had needs medical needs met

April 26, 2018 7:00 PM

I think Dr. Golzar is great, also his nurse X - They make you feel at ease.

March 25, 2018 7:00 PM

He is an exceptional Dr!!

March 19, 2018 7:00 PM

I had a wonderful experience. My provider explained everything to me so that I clearly understood what we will need to do for my care.

March 19, 2018 7:00 PM

I went to Dr. Golzar for MY VEINS IN MY LEGS, bad bad pains for years. HE DIDN'T EXAMINE ME, (look on the screen & said its your "BACK") MY BACK NEVER HURT! He said I need a MRI, I had one 6 mos. ago. So I left, and I PAID HIM $30.00 BEFORE I WENT IN, FOR WHAT?

January 31, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Golzar is a pleasant doctor to talk, and make you aware of your problem.

January 21, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr Golzar is an excellent doctor. I changed my primary doctor just to make sure I could still see him to finish my procedure that's how good he is at what he does he is very nice and makes you feel comfortable, he has a great nurse also XX.
