My ruptured disk caused pinched nerves resulting in numbness in my leg and foot. Dr Salari was very compassionate, explained things clearly, and took his time to answer my questions. Surgery was required and was successful. I highly recommend Dr Salari. He is a wonderful person and cares about his patients.

This has been the third time I have had to use Dr. Salari. Once we decided to have surgery, the other two he recommended PT instead. I is comforting to know that he will do what is best for the particular situation instead of pushing an operation. I have been very satisfied with the care, ease and demeanor I received from Dr. Salari.

With pinched nerves and a cervical disk problem, Dr. Salari made my visits as "painless" as possible. His reassurance of what was to come for me put me at ease. My predicament did require surgery, and Dr. Salari's confidence enabled me to feel better about undergoing this operation. Everything that he mentioned up to the operation and after happened as predicted. My operation was in February and i was golfing in May, I am pain free a year later. He is what a doctor should be.

Dr Salari changed my life I had 2 surgeries neck fusion and spinal fusion after the neck surgery within two months the pain I had suffered with for a long time was totally gone and where he made the incision it’s hard to find because of the location and then 8 months later he did my lower back and now 5 months later the pain is continually getting better Dr Salari and his team of professionals were absolutely amazing it’s been a life changing experience Thank you very much for all you’ve done

Dr. Salari was wonderful in discussing my surgery options and during my stay in the hospital after surgery he visited every day making me feel at ease. He is very personable to speak with and my back pain has all but ceased to exist. I feel that I can now walk, stand and lead a "normal" life again. I would recommend Dr. Salari to anyone experiencing spinal pain. His office staff at all the locations were always very helpful and professional. Thank you Dr. Salari and staff.

I had a very painful back injury brought on by 2 herniated discs. I was referred to Dr. Salari by my doctor. I could not be more pleased with the consultation and care provided by Dr. Salari. He was very knowledgeable, truthful, and direct regarding the surgery that was needed, the potential risks involved, as well as the potential risks down the road. The surgery went off without a hitch and I am pain free. I would definitely recommend Dr. Salari!

I had the most painful back problem, could barely walk, using a walker, all due to disc in my back that were severely damaged. Dr. Salari knew just what had to be done and took care of the problem. As soon as the surgery was over, I could walk without a walker and ma completely pain free. Trust me, if you are in need of a good spine doctor Dr. Ben Salari is the one.

THIS IS THE GUY TO SEE !!!!! Dr. Salari is WONDERFUL! Was very polite and confident in how he could help me without being cocky. Had my surgery in Jan. and was back to work by March. INCREDIBLE! Now thanks to him I out of the extreme pain that I had been in for years. I can now actually feel my toes (couldn't for 10 years). I no longer have excruciating pain down my legs into my feet. His staff is great too. His Physician's assistant Mike Gundell and Nurse Daniella were always there to help!

Dr. Salari and his whole team were great to deal with throughout the process. After a two level fusion and removal of a fractured vertebrae with 6 screws put in place, I was back walking and driving in 2 weeks. He and his team did their job and they did it very well.

From day 1, I was impressed by how thorough Dr. Salari explained my condition and offered options to fix my problem. He did not “sugar” coat my cervical deterioration, nor the time for recovery from my 3 level dystectomy and fusion. He answered all my questions, all possible side effects, and changes that might have to occur to my life style. He encouraged me to get a second opinion and to have that other doctor clarify a possible problem. My surgery & follow up care were excellent! My hero!
