Based on my first contact, I would not recommend
I am relocating to the Lafayette area and called Dr. Jamali's office in an effort to find a good orthopedic surgeon in Contra Costa County. The woman who answered the phone was quite dismissive of me as soon as she heard I was going to pay out of pocket for expenses that Medicare didn't cover. Essentially she told me my out of pocket would be $500 for the consult. I believe she thought that would dissuade me. When it didn't she told me she would have to speak to Dr. Jamali to see if he would take my case. A business is only as good as one's first contact and based on that I would recommend selecting another physician from the many qualified ones in the Bay Area.

Fifteen years ago I had both of my knees replaced by Dr Jamali. They were a bit more complex due to previous breaks just below the knees. As others have stated, he was very supportive and kind. He is also confident without being haughty as many Doctors I’ve dealt with. I just went for a check up, and everything is still great! No loosening, no wear of the meniscus, no pain. I am extremely grateful Dr Jamali was the surgeon I chose.

Dr. Jamali is a highly skilled surgeon who is also a careful listener, a compassionate physician and a perfectionist about his craft. He takes the time to explain medical procedures thoroughly and to answer the many questions that a patient might have about joint issues, intervention strategies and surgical procedures. In early May 2019 Dr. Jamali and I decided the time had come to do a total knee replacement for my arthritic knee and in late August, Dr. Jamali was my surgeon for the operation. In the two-plus months since then, my recovery from the procedure has been perfect. My range of motion continues to improve, the pain has subsided significantly and I've also been told my scar is "beautiful." I look forward to hiking our gorgeous ranges in the new year. I would highly recommend Dr. Jamali to anyone seeking help for hip or knee issues. As a matter of fact, I already have.

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.
