Dr Kia cyan is one of the best physicians that I know of. He's very caring and knowledgeable and takes the time to listen and recommend things for me. I highly recommend him.
Excellent service.
The appointment I had with the PA and Doctor exceeded my expectations. They spent time to thoroughly cover every detail of my condition and to make sure I understood any steps they would take in treating it. They presented my case at the tumor conferences and personally called me within hours of meeting to let me know what the consensus of the team was. I can't imagine better care than this!
Excellent meeting with Dr Kia Saeian and his assistant, who was In her 4th year of Medical School. She asked good questions and examined my abdomen.

Dr. Kia Saeian is excellent. He is of course extremely knowledgeable but what sets him apart from other gifted physicians is the care and compassion that he demonstrates towards his patients. He never rushes or appears to be in a hurry. He is an active listener and cares what his patient thinks. He goes above and beyond to meet the needs of his patient not only physically but emotionally as well. I am always grateful.
