Dr. R is an excellent skilled neurosurgeon with an awesome office staff/support team…esp., Nicole (RN). Nicole is kind, caring, efficient, listens to your questions/concerns, & is always eager to help! She makes you feel so comfortable & at ease…It's like having a friend there!! I've had to contact Dr. R's office on a number of occasions, for various reasons & Nicole was always quick to reply after speaking to Dr. Rustamzadeh, on my dad's behalf! So grateful to Dr. R & to his amazing staff!!!

An amazing experience, to say the least. I suffered from Piriformis Syndrome, which I was a told was virtually untreatable. Researched and found a couple of references to Dr. Rustamzadeh. After a 1-1/2 procedure and short downtime, I am driving long distances again with no pain whatsoever. And his assistant Nicole was wonderful - informed, professional, and kind.
