Review of Dr. Moftakhar

-Columbia, SC |

Dr. Moftakhar bedside manner ranks at the top of the list. I have never seen a physician that takes the time and treat you like a person. Answering all questions, showing you the steps thouroughly that would be completed. I had an aneurysm and it was because of Dr. Moftakar that I am here today. He is amazing! The staff, however, is a different story. They do not return calls. It is my opinion that Dr. Moftakar can only be as good as his team allows him to be. He is being short-changed.

Poor doctor. Works in the emergency room in Richland and Kershaw counties. He doesn't treat patients but charges them. Beware

Review of Dr. Moftakhar

- in Orlando, FL |

I was a patient of Dr Moftakhar’s when I lived in Illinois and when he was at Rush Hospital I had a brain aneurysm which he was able to go thru my groin to my upper left temple and install a stent and coil my aneurysm. I recommend him 1000 percent. He is the only doctor who actually came to the emergency room to see me. That man is a very caring person. I’m living in Florida now and I wish he was too.

Review of Dr. Moftakhar

- in Irmo, SC |

Unexpectedly, a tumor was found in the base stem of my brain. Dr. Moftakhar answered all of my husbands questions and performed the 7 hour surgery. I’ve also seen him for follow ups. He is wonderful. A gem of knowledge, dedication and experience. His right hand, Leah, is also attentive and dedicated. They make a wonderful team. I highly recommend Dr. Moftakhar.

Review of Dr. Moftakhar

- in Columbia, SC |

Dr. Moftakhar is awesome. He is patient, kind, and takes all the time in the world with you. Unfortunately his office staff is just the opposite. They are rude, incompetent, don’t EVER return phone calls, (even after havin brain surgery and leaving 4 messages asking for a return call I was told the nurse is too busy to call patients back!!!!!) and don’t follow through with what the doctor says they will do (set up MRI appointment). Trying to work with them is impossible.

Review of Dr. Moftakhar

- in Inman |

My name is David Taylor and I am from retired from Sptbg County Sheriffs Office. Now I am an Auctioneer. While I was competing in our state competition I was having a horrible headache. Fast forward to the next day I went to our meeting place, sat down and woke up in the ambulance. When I got the hospital I was met by a team of Doctors that took great care of me. One of those people was Dr. Moftakhar. Because of Dr. Moftakhar and the grace of God I was able to do my very first Auction last week

Review of Russell McMurry

- in Lexington |

Russ McMurry has been absolutely great over the years. He has helped me with the after care and follow up treatments for a spine issue. Always caring and a fantastic listener. He clearly explains the steps needed and what to expect.
