Dr. Khalfayan I awesome and I highly recommend him! He is very knowledgeable and I like his calm demeanor. He always explains things in a detailed way and spends plenty of time.

No apology after I waited for over an hour in his office at my year follow up appt for ACL reconstruct. My hamstring looks like a wrinkled old man, and my shin/ankle are numb. He told me that he must have cut a nerve when harvesting the hammy, and my leg would never go back to normal. I'm bummed about my leg, but people make mistakes. What bothers me, is that he never told me about the possible risks involved in hamstring graph, and wasn't humble enough to apologize about my leg or being late.

After numerous disappointing consultations with other orthopedists, I found Dr. Khalfayan. I chose to be kept awake for the surgery and he explained what he was doing throughout. With his guidance and a great PT team, within 3 weeks I was back to full range of motion, within 7 months I felt my balance and strength were better than before, within 10 months you could hardly see the scars and at a year, I moved to Sinaloa, Mexico to dance with Delfos Contemporánea and the National Ballet de Cuba.
