in Houston, TX |
First surgery last year, I had no idea what I was in for and so declined rehab type care. Biggest mistake, once you leave hospital your on your own. Second surgery last year, begged for skilled nursing care after surgery. Was told can't ask for it till after surgery. While still in hospital I started the process. Dr. Azimpoor came in my room, shocked I asked for skilled care. His friendly demeanor turned sour. Told me I didn't need it. It's not like he was going to pay for it!!!! I won't use!

Dr. Azimpoor is very thorough and knows his stuff. He is very patient and compassionate about what is going on with you. He doesn't have a problem answering your questions. If you don't understand, he will always explain. His office staff is very good. I have recommended friends to Dr. Azimpoor, and they are happy. God bless Dr. Azimpoor.

Dr Azimpoor is a very thorough and caring person. He made me very comfortable and explained everything so I can understand it. The staff is also amazing. The office manager Carrie is very knowledgable as well and makes you feel at home. I will definatley recommend to anyone I know that needs a neurosurgeon.

The condition that was supposed to be fixed by the surgery was at least as bad as before the surgery. Level of concern after surgery was minimal.
