We are new in the area and was referred to DR Ghazanfari by our GP.. He worked My husband in for gallbladder surgery. He let us know step by step on everything going on. Excellent Dr.. So glad we were referred to this Dr. Thank you Dr Ghazanfari..

Dr. Ghazanfari removed a weird growth from my son's face, and my son said it was painless. He was very nice and explained everything as he was doing it. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ghazanfari to anyone!

Very efficient, yet pleasant doc . Went in for a consult on removal of a dime sized bump on my back, and I was very happy he took care of removing it right there on the spot (after Insurance authorization - the longest part of the process). Returned for removal of stitches and the same awesome efficiency. I highly recommend Dr. Ghazanfari!

Dr Ghazanfari was great! I had to get my gallbladder out and was a bit nervous he made me laugh and feel very comfortable. Such a great guy! The nurses at Paramount surgical center were very caring and did an amazing job!

Dr. Ghazanfari gets a perfect score. Completing my needed surgery within his properly equipped operation area, on office site. He saw the lump and removed it. I felt safe and cared for. He knows his stuff. McGill University from Montreal Canada....I can say, Dr. Ghazanfari is the BEST!

I was referred to Dr G for hernia surgery. He is an excellent Doctor. I found him very easy to talk to and he explained my condition and the repair he recommended very clearly. The surgery was completed on 5/08/17 as an outpatient procedure at Banner Baywood. If I have the need for his skills in the future, I will be back! His staff is outstanding! Always friendly, courteous and helpful.

A real doctor, the best, compassionate, honest, very professional. 2 previus Indian doctors misdiagnosed my surgery for "money" Dr. Ghazanfari did the diagnosis by eye and later confirmed with the physical, I went in surgery and he did the best. America should have more doctors like him. THANKS DOCTOR GHAZANFARI!

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.

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
