Testimonial

  • It’s been three months since surgery and I’ve been feeling better then ever, sailing, sky diving, and training dogs. I am not an advocate of surgery but if you ever need a procedure done on your spine I would very much recommend the services of Dr. Raiszadeh and his staff as they provided me with the best experience possible.

  • 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.

  • I was unable to walk or stand w/o major pain down my left leg. I am very pleased with Dr. Raiszadeh’s treatment. He performed a PLIF (posterior lumbar interbody fusion) with instrumentation, and this has (so far) resolved the pain. The Dr. was very professional and caring, and I would gladly recommend him to my friends.
