Review for Dr. Khan

Dr. Ramin Rooipour is a SICK doctor. He pressed SO hard on my stomach and made my hernia 100 times worse. I think he purposely made me worse so he could make money doing surgery on me. I have never been the same since I last saw him. I’ve been in horrible pain.

Review for Dr. Roohipour

An in-office or in-hospital visit with Dr. Kosar is always pleasant. He explains the issues so that you understand, listens to what what you say. I highly recommend Dr. Kosar and give him 5 Star rating.
