      I saw Dr. Vishteh after my MRI showed disc herniations in my neck. Still being very functional (playing basketball, golf, jogging), I was surprised when Dr. Vishteh told me I needed cervical fusion surgery at C5-6 and 6-7. I did lots of research over the next several weeks, including two other opinions (including at the Mayo Clinic) - in the end, I ended up back with Dr. Vishteh and had surgery 3 months ago. Surgery went extremely well and feel as good as new. I highly recommend Dr. Vishteh.

      This guy is the absolute BEST doctor and surgeon I've ever had in my life. Good guy too. I'm so fortunate that I found him for my spine surgery. He's the only doctor I'd ever trust to operate on my spine. Dan Levin

      I am a patient of Dr. Vishteh. I am also a Certified Surgical Assistant. As such, I do know how to judge and choose a surgeon. When I needed spinal surgery, I chose him. I did so because of his education, credentials and rapport with other patients and the operating room staff. His professionalism carries on to his office staff as well. My surgery went very well, and the pain was relieved immediately. I would highly recommend Dr. Vishteh to anyone needing spinal/brain surgery. Great man and MD

      Dr. Vishteh is a great surgeon, but what makes him stand out is his bedside manner. I believe that he truly cares for his patients as individuals. He was the only provider to educate me about my recovery and I had a very expansive team of specialists. His office staff (Dana) is also extremely available and helpful.

      Anyone in need of back surgery should feel confortable with choosing Dr. Veshteh. His bedside manor and surgical skill is unsurpassed in the valley and I recommend him wholeheartedly. I give Dr. Vishteh and his staff five out of five stars. Dana, Dr. Vishteh's assistant was always cheerful and helpful with my questions and concerns and was a pleasure to work with.

      Outstanding doctor I wish all my doctors were skilled and professional as Dr. Vishteh. I had surgery on my spine it went flawlessly !!
      in Chandler, AZ |
      Dr. Vishteh was recommended by another doctor. I cannot adequately express my gratitude for the excellent care I received for the removal of a cancerous tumor from the interior of my skull. His skill and care were beyond reproach. He and his staff made every turn of events as pleasant and healing an occasion as I could expect. I felt I was bering cared for by family. I never felt alone or some kind of business-as-usual patient. This is a special doctor with staff of equal caliber.
