Dr. Saghafi understood my urgent concerns and orchestrated a comprehensive evaluation including a second opinion consultation with a University Neurologist, and arranged for timely and minimally invasive surgery for what had become a critically unstable situation.I cannot say enough about the comprehensive and caring approach as well as the immense knowledge base and application of clear and necessary caution before considering surgery demonstrated by this truly remarkable physician.

Howard Hall in Arcata, CA – Apr 09, 2018
Tdoctor is not a 5 Star. VA hospital bring in doctorare r h high on skill level for a doctor for veterans. He writes reports that are not true against veterans. He files reports against Veterans who survived this country as a soldier. He is the reasons Vets do not get treated fair by him.please do not follow him or his diagnosis if you value your life from the military and civilians. Do not trust him. Go check his records.

It's rare to find a doctor with such insight & pure perspective. How much it means to be treated with the care and kindness that he gives, so freely, with no preconceptions weighing him down. His positive spirit and open ears/mind generates a concerted synergy with his patients, casts light on the direction to take, and propels all forward. I’ll always be grateful for the help that he’s given to our family, and for making such a difference in so many lives/ways.
