    Dr Afshar performed an ACDF on my neck in March 2016. Results were excellent! All pain, tingling and numbness are gone. He is an excellent surgeon and a better person. He took the time to answer all of our questions and inspired confidence. I'm feel very fortunate to have found him.

    I take exception to previous comments reference scheduling. Dr. Afshar by all measures and recommendations sits in the top position for the Treasure Coast. He has more volume than capacity so yes, the appointments have long lead times. However, his capability to meet with you during a visit is informative and comforting. This doctor restores your quality of life. His techniques to aid you are immeasurable, smart, and beneficial, He is well known in the community and I'd recommend no other.

    Awful! Takes months to see him. First meet w/his PA. If she thinks you are a candidate for surgery you will get an appointment with him several months later. If you require a complicated surgery he will not do it. He is the laminectomy king of the Treasure Coast. I would not recommend him.
