Dr Amjadi has given me back a quality of life that I have not had for many years he and his staff are friendly knowledgeable and always available to answer my questions Dr. Amjadi is a no-nonsense doctor with an excellent bedside manner and as long as you follow his instructions during your recovery your surgery will be successful. Thank you for everything doctor and I appreciate all you have done for me.

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.

I spent majority of my adult life performing hard labor in construction and chose Dr. Amjadi for my condition based on his level of expertise and reviews online. When I met him, he was considerate, knowledgeable and extremely thorough in assessing my condition. Further, he was honest about my options as a patient. His support staff was outstanding and consistent in answering my questions throughout entirety of my surgical and convalescing period. I recommend Dr. Amjadi for any orthopedic needs.

I've been seeing Dr. Amjadi for a little over a year, I had to have major back surgery and he did an amazing job on me. Changed my life! I got released back to work today 10\26 with no restriction!! AMAZING JOB!! Thanks Doc! Angie, and the rest of his staff treated me like family. Thanks everyone.. John Spencer

I love and miss Doctor Amjadi @nd his staff. He did a lower lumbar fusion and a neck fusion. I wish that I could have my second neck surgery to be rid of my neuropathy in my arms and shoulders. Dr. Amjadi is as good as having God himself heal you.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Amjadi has nursed me through my various back issues with excellence and professionalism. Dr. Amjadi is thorough with after care instructions and the ramifications of not following these instructions. Dr. Amjadi's expertise is not only in orthopedics but also neurology which makes him the best candidate to perform any procedure with nerve involvement. His staff friendly, efficient, accommodating to my last minute requests, dogged with insurance issues and even remember my name.

I dealt with extreme pain in my neck and shoulders for over 2 years, which culminated in severe numbness and pain in the left arm/hand and loss of grip. I was scared when I was referred for surgery but he was thorough in diagnosing my condition and presenting me with option. I ended up having cervical fusion surgery (anterior and posterior) over a two day period. Immediately after the surgeries, I regained use of my left hand and was pain free. Both he and staff are AWESOME!
Bakersfield, CA |
I will go back to have him do my second surgery. Besides manner and his assistant is a little rough but worth it for his surgical excellence.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Need more stars......I would recommend Dr. Amjadi 100%. Dr. Amjadi is very thorough and takes his time explaining your procedure. I felt comfortable throughout the whole process. His entire office staff, surgical staff and personal asst.(Angie Cohen) are the absolute best in the industry. Angie spent quite a bit of time on the phone with me. She answered every question I asked of her and was, genuinely compassionate, personable and honest. Thank you to the Whole Staff!! I Feel Great!
Bakersfield, CA |
I'm a nurse, and several colleagues of mine as well as my primary doctor recommended Dr. Amjadi when I needed a cervical decompression and fusion. I was not expecting to have such an easy recovery and perfect results. It's about 6 weeks out, and I'm still feeling grateful and lucky. The pain, numbness, and tingling I was experiencing 24/7 are gone. Thank you Dr Amjadi and your friendly and helpful office staff!
Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Amjadi was able to diagnose my problem when everyone else missed it. He let me decide which coarse of treatment I was comfortable with. He and his team were great. After only 2 weeks post op I am now virtually pain free, aside from surgery site (which healing great).
in Tehachapi, CA |
After two visits, he was able to diagnose, recommend a procedure, and successfully treat the source of my pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Amjadi ... I immediately felt comfortable with him, and his staff members are very friendly, courteous and professional. A well-run office.
in Tehachapi, CA |
Dr Amjadi is one of the kindest and most attentive physician I've had the privilege to meet (and I'm a nurse/sugery tech). He and his assistant Angie made me feel as if I was their only concern at that moment. I did not feel rushed and felt very confident in his diagnosis and plan. I would highly recommend Dr. Amjadi to anybody.
in Bakersfield, CA |
I am VERY pleased with the diagnosis and Spinal Fusion Surgery that Dr. Amjadi performed on me 4 months ago. I was living with excruciating Sciatic Pain due to Stenosis in my lower back for nearly 5 years. I knew, waking up from surgery, that pain was gone ! Dr. Amjadi is a no-nonsense kind of doctor who tells it like it is. He cares about his patients and will only perform surgery if he truly thinks it will help you. His staff is friendly and helpful and guides you through the process.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Amjadi is firm, professional, experienced, and a scrupulous surgeon. As a person, who has gone through countless pain management doctors, they all suggest surgery being the last resort because of all the complications that accompany it. But I got lucky with Dr. Amjadi. I went in last minute after enduring years of pain I thought I could handle. I let it go to the point of incontinence. I saw Dr. Amjadi on a Thursday, received emergency laminectomy and fusion on Monday. Now I am pain free.
in Tehachapi, CA |
I suffered from neck pain for a long time and was absolutely terrified to let anyone touch my neck and even postponed the surgery for a couple years till one day at work I felt shocking pain shooting down my left arm. I was referred to Dr. Amjadi by a few friends of mine and I do not regret choosing him for one second. He was very informative to me on my level of understanding about the surgery and the recovery and was a pleasure to work with.

Great doctor and a hell of a nice guy. Great bedside manner, very easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Amjadi.

Dr. Amjadi is an excellent and very thorough doctor and surgeon. He did surgery on my cervical vertebrae C5, C6, and C7 because they were pinching nerves in my right shoulder, back, arm, and hand. I was in excruciating pain, and I wasn't able to use my right arm and hand. My condition worsened until my neck would not support my head anymore. Dr. Amjadi performed surgery and I am now pain free and I have use of my arm and hand.
Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Amjadi was amazing! He genuinely cared about my health and did everything he could to help me get better. My surgery was done about 4 months ago and it is a complete 180 from what I was before. I was in severe pain for months and now I have none. His staff was so helpful and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and give me all of the information I needed. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Amjadi to anyone and everyone!

New York, NY |
Excellent. Very successful surgery outcome
in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr Amjadi has done one back surgery and 2 neck surgeries for me. I could barely walk before my back surgery. He told me for all 3 surgeries that he would treat my body like it was his own. I felt like he did exactly that. He did such a good job on by back surgery that I regained full use of both of my legs again without pain, I had barely been walking with a cane. After the way he treated me and the results I had there was no way I was going to see another doctor. I recommend him to everyone.
