My chronic pain began in 2013 after I tried a partial discectomy with another dr. After several years of PT, nothing was improving, only getting worse. My legs were getting numb, my hips hurt, all on top of my back pain. I saw Dr Araghi and he was incredible! We looked at my scans together and he answered all my questions. Together we decided an anterior/posterior lumbar fusion would be best. I am now 3 wks post op and feel fantastic! I cried tears of joy at my follow up appt!!

This man is a monster. No bed side manner, no compassion. Should consider a career change to police officer. If you see this man for help, I look forward to reading your negative review here.

He is very personable. He asks good questions and , more importantly, listens to the answers. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.

compassion of a gnat if that; hair stood on back of neck... don't trust Core is way too arrogant anymore... will never go again

Had the first double disc replacement in Arizona on my upper spine and a decompression on my lower spine with Dr. Araghi. To read other comments you have to understand that he is an expert in his field and that you have to do your own research on procedures and complications. He is straight forward and blunt, not someone who will sugar coat your treatment. Dr. Araghi thank you for everything.
When he started the appointment with no offense, but why are you here, I should have walked out. He then tells me I have degenerative back disorder and what do I expect when your spin is small and look at all the weight it's supporting. He said there was nothing he could do for me, and maybe if I built my core up it might help you won't see a physical difference, but it might help so it does get worse. Zero bedside manner and should not have to pay for that appointment!

I had artificial disc replacement between C5-6 and C6-7 on 09/08/2015 with the Mobic . I was satisfied with Dr Araghi's diagnosis. What angered me was his reaction to the fact that due to whatever he did during my surgery, I woke up with Horners Syndrome. Basically this condition is sensory nerve damage that caused my left eyelid to droop, the pupil won't dilate properly and I cant sweat on left side of my face. For a surgeon of his stature this should never have happened. Not his 1st Rodeo.....

He about killed my 75yr old mother and then shrugged it off. I hope to see him in the parking lot and see if he has the same attitude.

I would not recommend this Dr at all.
