my 1st visit, he took & read x-rays, examined my knee, was familiar with what I had written of my knee problem, ordered MRI & I had no delay at all with scheduling follow-up appt for MRI results. I feel confident he is looking for my best interest.

Review for Dr. Raiszadeh

Dr. Udani is the best. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't be walking and recovering. I appreciate him very much and would recommend all who need the type of surgeries he does. He gave me my life back and I'm recovering well. Thank you so much Dr. Udani
