Dr. Rustamzadeh performed surgery on my daughter Tonya this passed Monday. He spoke to me before the surgery and after the surgery. He was very willing to answer any questions that I had as well as her daughter. What ever she needed after the surgery he made sure of her receiving the care that she needed. I would highly recommend him to others. He's very caring of his patients and they're family. Thank you, Gretchen Ferguson (Tonya's mom)

The X-rays showed serious degeneration of my neck which was in the process of auto fusing. Very, very painful. Looking at the X-rays my primary doc said there are very few surgeons that would even touch that, but one would ... Dr Rustamzadeh. He did a total reconstruction of my neck C-2 > C-7 Surgery was approx 8 hours. The recovery wasn't too bad. Off all pain meds in a week and today I am completely pain free! Can't say enough good things about Dr R. He is one awesome surgeon-a miracle worker

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.
