Extremely Knowledgeable

Dr. Behnam is very knowledgeable and through. She can various techniques to treat a problem. Sometimes she prescribes Western medical drugs or specialists. Often she will print a list of vitamins with specific dosages to help with a condition as well as suggestions for more exercise, massage ect. (ie, for high blood sugar). She really listens and solves the the problem. She has helped me, and I highly recommend her...Diane Stotler

Great doctor

I have been long searching for a doctor like this. She is kind and professional. She makes you at ease with your concerns. Great listener, explains everything clearly, and do not push medication if not necessary. I am so glad I found her.
