Dr. Azimpoor was excellent, he explained everything fully, in a way we could understand, I had neck surgery on 4,5,6, & 7 Vertibrae. Not only was Dr azimpoor outstanding, his entire staff was excellent, the hospital he is affiliated with for surgery was also outstanding! I was Very impressed with my whole experience, his staff is exceptional and my wait time was maybe 5 minutes!!!

Dr. Azimpoor diagnosed my problem on the first visit. We scheduled the tests needed and scheduled surgery after the tests came back. I had surgery last week and am no longer in any pain. I highly recommend Dr. Azimpoor.

DR.Azimpoor is the Best Doctor I have been to. He cares about you as a person and a patient. He is so patient and understanding. He explained everything to me and made my decision to have surgery a simple one. I truly recommend him to everyone. When I came in I was nervous and he said I am not nervous. He is funny and made me have a smile on my face. The hospital he uses is a 5 star hospital the best. I hope this will relieve any questions whether to choose Dr Azimpoor

My wife and I have known Dr Azimpoor for a number of years. I have experienced back surgery and my wife neck and back surgery with great results in relieving back and neck pain. Dr Azimpoor is a caring individual with a high degree of professionalism as a Neurosurgeon. I highly recommend Dr Azimpoor as a talented highly qualified surgeon.

"Dr. Ali" (as two previous patients of his call him) was everything they described him as being... calm, professional, caring, experienced, competent -- and "the Best." I did check to see if he had any "issues" (due diligence, you know), and he has not one strike against him. I'm about to have a spinal fusion (from the front) and have not a qualm about it. I'll write another review after I throw away my cane!

Very first appointment was welcoming. Hardly any wait time at all, which is very unusual for a doctor's office. Dr. Azimpoor explained my MRI from a previous doctor in terms that I understood and showed me on the screen. He asked and listened to me exactly my problems and he answered and also checked out on my legs the problems I discussed and reviewed my previous surgery. Dr. Azimpoor seemed concerned and I look forward to his help and working with his helpful, friendly staff.

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.
