Ramin Raiszadeh, M.D. Director of Clinical Research
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Dear Dr. R,
I just want to take this time to THANK YOU Personally for your treatment of me and your continued support of me and my recovery of my spine surgery .. Which In my humble opinion was a TOTAL Success !!! I no longer have to stay in bed all day because I cannot get up or face the day with Horrible pain... Your surgery successfully treated me so that I am able to jump up early and get in and out of the shower without Help !! And to even start to clean my own apartment again (somewhat) without all the assistance I used to need.. Although I still face some recovery, (My wound is not completely healed) my prospects for nutrition have improved and my choices by being able to stay in a grocery store longer and choose different things have improved. !! I Love my New LiFe, And I won't squander it,, I promise you.. I am prepared to work hard at PT whenever you feel I'm ready and then ,,, Who knows from there? LOL... Maybe another job,, Maybe just early retirement,, But whatever happens, I'm so glad you and your team chose to help ME and MY problems and to really concentrate on my Recovery... THANK YOU AGAIN FOREVER, from the bottom of my heart.. I adore the fact that I found you in a magazine article,,.. And you and your practice wasn't really a Fairy Tale that someone made up for a great sounding story.. All my thoughts and prayers are always with you and your whole team.. (From Receptionists to You yourself...). Thank you all again,,
"It may not be often that a patient writes to compliment your practice after being told not to have surgery. Dr. Ramin Raiszadeh did just that for me today -- while assuring me that an MRI would "certainly identify something [I could operate on]," he advised that it would most likely not mitigate my lower back pain, and suggested that continued targeted exercising may stimulate improvement. How rare, in this era of procedure-hungry doctors, to meet a surgeon who puts ethics ahead of income!
In fact, I was much impressed not only by Dr. Raiszadeh but, equally important, by every member of your staff.
Your receptionists demonstrated that their sense of responsibility extends beyond the person at the counter to include everyone waiting in your reception lobby. Your medical assistant and physician assistant combine friendliness with their professionalism, explain things in ways that laymen can understand, and are careful to ask if there's anything else they can do. Dr. Raiszadeh - even after advising that I would not be his patient - spent several minutes giving me a detailed explanation of his film-based diagnosis and allowing me to listen in on his dictation. As a 30-year mystery patient and shadow coach for low-scoring doctors, I can't help watching for the big and little things that make patients feel valued and respected. Your practice is a spectacular example of how busy professionals can put their focus on the patient, not just the pathology. Please consider me a resource for any prospective patient wondering about the reception he'll receive at your practice."
"What a wonderful staff you have, especially in your office and not to mention in the O.R. They are truly all compassionate and caring! I am doing as well as can be expected for a little old lady. I am healing every day and taking it one day at a time. I am happy to have you as my doctor. Thank you for all of your care."

"I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my back. You put me back on my feet. You are my miracle doctor. I'll never forget the first time I cam in to see you. For some reason I knew you were the doctor that was going to do my surgery so I didn't hesitate. I am so grateful to have known you. My boys are very grateful too. I am writing on this butterfly card because this is how I feel like, a butterfly "free". My grandson has been given your name in honor of you saving me."
Due to a traumatic injury to my back thirty five years ago, I was now at the point in my life where I could no longer brush aside the pain and associated symptoms. I was finally succumbing to the numbness, burning, difficulty ambulating, and difficulty with activities of daily living.
It became glaringly apparent that something had to be done. Knowing that surgery would likely be my only effective form of treatment, I did mot research and decided upon the right man for the job, Dr. Ramin Raiszadeh. His background and surgical record speak for themselves.
Living sixty miles from San Diego, my primary care physician was someone local. So the first thing I had to do was change my primary care physician and make it someone in the same medical group as the surgeon I chose, so I could get my necessary referral. This I did and then started making arrangements to have my very needed surgery. I have been an employee at Alvarado hospital for the past five years, so I know everyone there, and felt peace and comfort having my surgery there with friends and family.Check Out Scott Almond's video testimonial on youtube!
