      Dr Ganzanfari is a proven outstanding surgeon, dedicated to his work and truly cares for his patients. He saved my life from a very serious sepsis condition through late night emergency surgery and followed with successful colostomy take down 3 months later.
      in Queen Creek AZ |
      Dr. Ghazanfari is an amazing surgeon. I have seen his work in the role of RN taking care of his post-op patients. I was so impressed with both his skill and compassionate maner, that I sent both of my parents to him. My dad's was a fairly routine surgery and he recovered in record time. My mother was very ill with a lot of complications and poor prognosis. He came in to do her surgery. I know he saved my mother's life. i can't rate him high enough
