Dr. Khalessi operated on me in November 2015. He inserted a brain stent for an aneurysm and saved my life. I thank God for him all the time! From the first meeting he put me at ease. He took time to answer questions and to explain what would happen. There are many skilled doctor's out there. But Dr. K is not only an expert at saving lives, his bedside manner is the best! I trust him and would recommend him to anyone in need of his specialized skills to save their lives! God Bless You Dr.K!!!!

I highly recommend Dr. Khalessi. In 2014, he performed a craniotomy to clip an unruptured aneurysm. Since 2010, he's been my follow up neurologist for an aneurysm coil in 2009 by a Chicago doctor. Upon finding a second aneurysm on follow up, we first monitored it, then he clipped it. I had complete trust in him, his skills and his professionalism. The other doctors, nurses and staff around him are all great. I encourage anyone needing a neurosurgeon, to consider Dr. Khalessi. He changed my life.
Dr. Khalessi saved my life! He made my family and I feel comforted in a scary situation.
