I am fortunate to have Dr. Lashkari as my physician in my waning years. He is an excellent doctor, and very smart. He has saved my wife's and my own rears on several occasions for which we are deeply in his dept. Just so there is no misunderstanding - we are MDVIP members only because Dr. Lashkari is part of your network. Were he to quit it, we would go with him in a heartbeat. As far as I am concerned MDVIP has not added anything to our relationship with our physician, but I hope he gets something out of it. You are lucky to have Dr. Lashkari in your network - a finer person and physician would be hard to find. I note that some of the following questions ask about my doctor AND MDVIP. All my responses pertain to my doctor only - I find MDVIP irrelevant and view it as a business enterprise that profits from the competence of the physicians that have signed up. Dr. Lashkari is an excellent physician, with or without MDVIP. He is the important part of the equation, not MDVIP. On another note, your website is poorly programmed with evidence of sloppy programming. As a former programming supervisor I am trained to spot sloppy work. I do not agree with your legalese on the next page, but I checked the box because it seems to be the only way I can post these comments to your website.

Dr.Lashkari is a gem. He is a model physician. I would give him 10 out of 10s in all 3 areas of 1)bedside manner, 2) knowledge and medical expertise, and 3) dedication to his patients. I have known Dr.Lashkari for the last 2 years - he has been both the PCP and nephrologist for my father. I should add that I am a physician, and having the benefit of experiencing medicine as both a patient (or actually family member of patient) and practitioner - ive seen it all. I know what is possible, what is not, and what separates the regular doctors from the elite super doctors. Dr.Lashkari is one of the best physicians ive ever known, and I guess the best endorsement i could possibly give is to sincerely say that I feel blessed that he is taking care of my father. I cant say enough good things about Dr.Lashkari.

Last year I was diagnosed with cancer. Dr. Saman Lashkari has been with me from the first day on, guiding through many tests, arranging surgery, texting to ask how everything went, offering help in difficult situations, i.e unresponsive specialists, finding the best treatment for me and being a friend who is always available!

It was Sunday evening, about 7: PM, when my wife called me into the bedroom. She had gone to bed a few hours earlier because of back pain, and was using a heating pad. She showed me her back, and I was shocked. A huge area on her back was bright red, there were huge blisters, and some dark gray areas. I immediately called Dr. Lashkari on his after-hours cell phone. He asked me to photograph the wound and e-mail it to him. When he received the pictures, he confirmed 2nd and 3rd degree burns, and called in a prescription to my local pharmacy, and set up an appointment for 9:30 the following morning. I was well pleased with his quick action and concern which has prevented major suffering for my wife.

Being retired and on a fixed income at the present time, it was a difficult decision at first financially when Dr. Lashkari joined MDVIP. Soon after we thought about it we came up with our choice as we could not bare to lose the doctor we depend on so much for managing our healthcare at our older age. He is such a good listener and has researched difficult situations with special illnesses and found what is best for us. He is easy to talk to, always prompt and his staff is so nice. Could not bare to lose him

A little over a year ago I became a patient of Dr. Lashkari. My husband had been seeing Dr. Lashkari for many years and always got such excellent care, so I decided to make the switch. I also thought it would be good for us to go to the same doctor. My first issue was high blood pressure. I had been on medication previously and Dr. Lashkari could have told me just to take more, but he said he wanted to know why it was higher. I went through a number of tests that provided baselines for the future and some issues to watch. In the end he did land up increasing my current blood pressure medications. I am a person who like to know WHY something is, so this works well for me. Not long after, I fell and hurt my spine, Dr. Lashkari was able to get MRI results faster than lightening, and I did not have to worry whether there was a break or just bruising. His demeanor is friendly and I have an easy time talking to him. He listens well and doesnt belittle any of my off the wall complaints. I really like the ability to communicate with him, and his ability to communicate and coordinate care with the specialists I see. He has also recommended specialists when I have needed them, so far his recommendations have been excellent. I have had many little questions in the last year that did not merit the time for an office visit, instead I have been able to communicate through his portal and get answers quickly. This puts my inquiring mind at rest. I am a registered dietitian/nutritionist and currently run a food manufacturing company with our son. From my background, I am able to understand a lot of medical terms and conditions and I always want to know the details. A large part of my ability to overcome my problems is by understanding them. I know that Dr. Lashkari will be there to help me get the answers. This creates a lot of comfort and makes me feel better both physically and mentally. I think its very exciting that Dr. Lashkari is becoming an MDVIP physician. He wants his practice to be small enough to give his patients the time they need and the resources to lead a healthy lifestyle.
