Review for Dr. Rad

During the pandemic I was admitted to the ER with a a broken femur. Dr Melvin did emergency surgery and then supervised my recovery. I feel very fortunate that it was Dr Melvin who treated me.

Review for Dr. Rudzki

I highly recommend Dr. Khanna. He performed a spinal fusion on me several years ago that gave me my quality of life back. I could hardly walk. He explained my condition and treatment to me very thoroughly and put me at ease. I will refer to him if I need a surgeon in the future.
