in Irvine, CA |
Dr. Aminian is professional, knowledgeable and amazing. I took my son to Newport Orthopedic Institute for his broken wrist and a doctor there suggested a surgery. Then with a friend's recommendation, we went to see Dr. Aminian for a second opinion, and amazingly he fixed his wrist without surgery!...more
