What People Say About Dr. Hooman Rastegar, MD

Dr Rastegar is first and foremost compassionate and truly empathetic/sympathetic with chronic pain. He takes the time to go over your care plan, for me that included making sure my emotional well being was being cared for as well. We go over options with each visit, consider new paths to pursue, and he is always quick to answer and email or phone message. I would and have suggest him to anyone needing pain management.

Dr. Rastagar finally listened to me when other pain management specialists didn't. He diagnosed the source of my pain and helped make it better from the first visit. I finally understand how the nerve pain that I experience works, and how I can try to interrupt it through alternative means as well as medications.

I was so afraid to go to pain mgmt, but I feel so comfortable with Dr. Rastegar and his opinions and experience. I have had two epidural's..the second one I had because I fell a week after the first one. I didn't hesitate to call his office to get another one. Dr. Rastegar has such a great bedside manner, and in the operating room, lets you know what he is doing at the time. I would recommend Dr. Rastegar to ANYBODY. Thank you Dr. Rastegar
