I had not been to a doctor’s office in about a century, so I had no idea I was in such dire shape until Dr. B examined me. In our first meeting, he quickly made arrangements for me to be treated at Cedars to deal with a life threatening condition that I had dismissed as bronchitis. (Why did I think it was bronchitis? I don't know, I'm not a doctor, just a fool who used to rely too much on Wikipedia for his health care diagnoses.)
I am scared of everything health care related so this was my worst nightmare and I sort of freaked out, but Dr. B was very reassuring while not making light of my condition. Within 1 hour I was laying in my own room at Cedars, even though they quoted a much longer wait when they were first called. Dr. B flew through his rolodex and worked some magic over the phone because even the woman in admissions actually seemed surprised that I didn’t have to wait when I arrived.
He visited me throughout my stay and called me several times to ensure things were going smoothly with the hospital staff. He identified the issue (a heart virus, eek) and gave me a combo of meds that had my heart performing within normal range soon after my hospital stay.
He responds to emails quickly, even out of office hours and times when he is not in the office. Overall, I could not be more enthusiastic in my praise for this doctor. He cares about the health of his patients and has the expertise to back it up.
I was lucky enough to have stumbled upon Dr. Borookhim after an emergency room visit. Two doctors actually misdiagnosed my problem, and if it weren't for Dr. Borookhim's absolute commitment and relentless thoroughness, I would have been prematurely sent home and could have faced severe complications. This doctor literally saved my life, and I can't recommend him highly enough.
