Dr Jamali did both My Rt Knee and Rt Hip. The results has been amazing. I've had no pain since having the surgery. He's a great Dr. Very caring and compassionate.

Acl surgery went well used very old methods of connect joints. After separate Mencius surgery I came back with a complaint that I could not run for over about 6 months when he said that I should be able to within a month. His explanation was take it easy and lose some weight. Come to find out from a different doctor (dr Haynes) I had a large tear in my Mencius and multiple tears in other cartilages in my knee. I suffered for 9 month because Jamali decided that a MRI was not needed only I was fat

If I could give a ZERO I would. Very unprofessional, discharges patients with no explanation or even telling client. Long wait times during visits. Does procedures, insurance call experimental and when you don't heal as he expects you to; he discharges you and refuses to give you your medical records.

Dr. J. Is one of the best of the best surgeons and person you ever waned to meet. He treated my mom for years until she passed awayin 2013. He still treating my father, sister, brother and me a return patient. He's notout for the $ however, he is about getting back to the best health before he will even talk about performing any type of surgery. Thank you Dr J. From the entire Williams and Wilson family we ?? you??????

I had a total knee replacement in November 2015. Dr Jamali was the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever been to. After close to 40 years in the fire service, years of contact sports including ice hockey and boxing, my knee(s) were shot. Dr Jamali performed my surgery flawlessly and followed my recovery closely. I'm in my 10th month post op and couldn't be happier with the outcome. I work out at the gym every day and can leg press up to 300 lbs with NO DISCOMFORT at all !

My experience with Dr. Jamali was the worse ever!!! First ,I went to see him at his office on Bridge Rd. in Suffolk. The receptionist was very unprofessional in representing this practice. The wait wasn't bad, but Dr. Jamali had a medical student with him and they spent a good 5 minutes with me. Dr. Jamali told me to get an MRI, which I did, so I called the office to set up another appt with the dr. and no one returned any of my calls. I decided to see another dr. who's office was professional.

I have been treated by Dr.Jamali on and off for over 20 years. He has been an excellent surgeon for me and I find his bedside manner blunt and to the point which I really like. He has always been up front and honest with me. I would truly recommend Dr.Jamali to my friends and family.

Dr Jamali is a good surgeon. I had my L hip done. As a doctor however, he lacks empathy and compassion for his patients. He is rude and he talks behind your back outside the room when he thinks you can not hear him. I was in so much pain for so long and he basically accused me of just wanting pain meds when in actuality I was later dx with Rheumatoid Athritis and Fibromyalgia. He actually said to me you are the kind of patient that makes me wish I was not a Doctor. How professional.
