Specialties

Dr. Parisa Lotfi has the following 2 specialties

  • Diagnostic Radiology

    Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
    Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

  • Radiology

    A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
    The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
    Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

Would not go anywhere else

I was scheduled for a core needle biopsy. I had a streotactic 2 years ago that was not pleasant at a different clinic and told Dr Lotfi I had a bit of anxiety. This experience was totally different. She listened. She assured me this was a very different type of biopsy but there is always risk of some discomfort as I knew. She was not overly chatty but answered my questions with knowledge and confidence. As did the untrasound/mammo tech. The biopsy was swift and painless. Titanium chip was right where it should be on post biopsy mammogram and it was way back on my chest wall. No need for retakes or repositioning. I expected the worst and it was fine. I don't know why I ever doubted. I had a surgical biopsy with same team 2 years ago and it was as pleasant as pleasant could be. I will never go anywhere else than the Sagoff Breast Center, Dr Duggan and her entire team. Its a long way for me to travel but worth it. The entire team-from receptionists to pathologists to the surgeon work together like a well oil machine. I can't say enough about this group!

Full Review Rating Breakdown
no bedside manner

She was efficient but didn't really seem to realize what she was telling me was HUGE! I thought I was going in for a mammogram that needed to be done again. Instead I went directly to an ultra-sound imaging. The ultra-sound was VERY painful during which she didn't say anything to me. Just as suddenly she says I have to have needle biopsies done. She does one then two then says she needs more then another one. I was just in total shock. It was really a horrible experience for me. I'm not sure she realizes women are in shock and filled with fear during these procedures. Some form of comfort, reassurance, or empathy would have helped. I felt completely alone, like I was just a scientific specimen.
