Dr. Amjadi performed my neck surgery on April 19th,2018. From the very first visit, he informed me of all my options, non-surgical and surgical. Together we decided on surgery. All through the process he kept me informed on every step and the surgery was a success. Dr. Amjadi is very thorough and is the nicest and most caring doctor I have ever had. He always took his time and answered all my questions. I never had to wait and his staff is awesome! They helped me with all the disability paperwork and were always very helpful. I would recommend Dr. Amjadi to anyone who wanted a kind and capable surgeon. I will be seeing him whenever I have a problem. He's an awesome doctor and man! Sincerely, Kenny McClain

I was referred to Dr. Amjadi by my primary care physician at Kaiser. In my experience Kaiser always makes the best referrals and my experience with Dr. Amjadi bears this out. I needed a fusion of L2-4 and removal of a cyst on the spinal column; a delicate and dangerous procedure. It was a 6-7 hour operation, but it couldn't have gone better. Dr. Amjadi did a brilliant job and my recovery has been quick and easy. Thank you Dr. Amjadi.

Deciding to let Dr. Amjadi operate on my neck was the BEST decision I could have made. After year's of putting it off and living in pain he made me feel secure and comfortable to follow through with the procedure. Four month's later and my results are Amazing! My scar is healing great and is hardly noticeable. My only regret is not doing this sooner. Angie was VERY helpful and knowledgeable with all my paperwork. I could never Thank Dr. Amjadi enough for giving me back a pain free life.

Last Summer, I was referred to Firooz Amjadi, M.D. to review my case for possible Cervical spine fusion. After careful consideration of my specific situation, Dr. Amjadi agreed perform this surgery. Throughout this entire process, I and my family were treated with respect, kept informed, advised of all my options and what to expect after surgery. Several months post my surgery, I am very pleased to report the benefits outlined by Dr. Amjadi are realized and then some.

My experience was degrading! I went to see him for neck issues (bulging disc pinching and close to spinal cord) and he told me he would not help me because I was overweight and on pain medication. Very unprofessional let alone insensitive and rude

Dr Amjadi is a excellent surgeon. I found out about my spine issues July 13th and had my surgery Sept 10th. Dr Amjadi is direct and to the point and I appreciated that. He explained everything to me before hand. My surgery was a huge success and I am thrilled with the results. You couldn't find a better surgeon.

My husband had a C5-C7 fusion on August 30, 2018. Dr Amjadi was/is absolutely amazing, he tells you like it is and as long as you give it 100% he will do the same. My husband had feelings back in his hand within hours of having the surgery, he is completely pain free and can’t wait to get back to work. The scar is almost nonexistent, it looks just like a wrinkle in his neck. I would and have recommended anyone with spine pain to Dr Amjadi. Best decision we made was going to him. The ladies in th

Dr. Amjadi is the best! He made me feel safe, secure from start till the end. I truly felt he had my best interest at heart. He is very serious about you taking your own health serious also. I lost 53lbs with his encouragement. Thank you Dr. Amjadi for making take my health serious. I could barely walk for almost a year before I was referred to Dr. Amjadi. I just had my year check up and I couldn’t be happier. I’m not hurt, depressed from being down anymore. After a year I have my life back.

I had intended to leave a nice long note about the good things this office has done for me, then it stopped me at 500 letters! Suffice to say this no nonsense Dr has it dialed in! He’s been doing this for some years despite his somewhat youthful appearance (or Grecian formula) I’m a new man, thankyou Dr Amjadi. Knowing the medical field I will/have referred to him. It’s one year later, Im back grinding out a living. Thanks to SJCH room 7, Angie, and all his office staff whom are champions! Ray )

Dr. Amjadi is the best Orthopedic Surgeon in Bakersfield. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends. He did back surgery on my husband and is very knowledgeable in his field of work. He also takes time with his patients and their family explaining everything. Thank you Dr. Amjadi.

This review on Dr. Amjadi comes the perspective of the patients family member, I was very worried about my mother's neck surgery, having heard so many horror stories, but every question and concern I had was addressed by Dr. Amjadi. And he did so without making me feel uncomfortable or stupid. Not only is he a on excellent surgeon, but his care and bedside manner treats the patient and the family. I can't thank Dr. Amjad and his staff for all they've done in helping my mother.
