      Dr. Farnejad saved my life. He performed an emergency bowel surgery after complications from another surgery. I was not expected to make it through the night. I did and the next day he had to perform an illeosotmy. My insurance wasnt excepted at his office and he still saw and treated me. He even got my insurance to let him do my reversal. Even Offering to not get paid!! He is an awesome doctor who goes above and beyond for his patients. You won't find a more dedicated and caring doctor. ?

      Had laproscopic, robotic gallbladder removal performed by Dr. Farnejad. I could not have been happier with his initial evaluation (performed in the Emergency Room), surgical skill and compassion. My final recovery has been excellent. I had virtually no pain after the procedure and only needed to take tylenol. I strongly recommend Dr. Farnejad for surgical care.

      Dr. Farnejad performed a particularly difficult hernia repair near my diaphragm using laparoscopic surgery. He was a phenomenal surgeon that precisely explained to me all facets of this surgery. He made me feel confident, relaxed and that he genuinely cared about my health. The surgery was successful and improved my quality of life immensely. I still have one other hernia that needs attention and I hope I'll look no further than Dr. Farnejad. He has my total confidence.

      Rude, arrogant, condescending. What can I tell you. If you're looking for an experience with a man with the personality of a dead tree, but without the compassion or good looks- you got it. Sincerely sorry for anyone who subjects themselves to this level of unpleasantness. I would have rather suffered through my illness than another 10 minutes of Farnejad's cold snob fish demeanor. Never again.
