Dr. Jamali is the best doctor. He is so patient and thorough. I interviewed a number of orthopedic surgeons before I decided to have him operate on me. He replaced my hip after discussing all options. It was a decision we made together. He is a doctor who truly listens and cares about his patients.

I recently had hip arthroscopy performed by Dr Jamili. He took his time explaining the surgery and what I might expect! He was genuine, understanding and an outstanding surgeon! I am out of pain for the first time in 8 years! I can't recommend him enough.
