I had C5/C6 spinal surgery 4 weeks ago with Dr. Farrokhi at the Virginia Mason Clinic in Seattle. I am doing really well and only wish I had this surgery much sooner. Everyone at the Mason Clinic was very professional and kind. From the check-in to pre-op, surgery, post-op and a short hospital stay, I was treated with kindness, professionalism and respect. My concerns and questions were addressed. I was worried about this serious surgery, but the staff and Dr helped me through every step.

When I first met Dr. Farrohki he struck me as a very compassionate and knowledgeable surgeon. I had had 20 surgeries in my last two of which were back surgeries. I have learned how to research surgeons. Dr.Farrokhis credential where very impressive. Then I started talking to other back surgeons and told them I had seen Dr. Farrohki and wanted a second oppinion. They all told me if I was seeing Dr. Farrohki to stay with him because he is the best of the best. After surgery I agree he is.

Dr. Farrokhi and his entire team are without question the kindest and most caring individuals my wife and I have ever encountered. The office staff was outstanding--friendly and welcoming. Pam who scheduled the surgery went out of her way to ensure the easiest possible coordination of paperwork manageable. She does this with a heartfelt smile. Ally is on top of the situation and goes the extra mile to make the patient feel confident and welcome. The doctor--Wow! Evergreen Hospital--great.
