Dr. Kureshi preformed a spinal fusion on me after a motorcycle accident. While he did help me fix myself after the accident, what followed is why I only give him 1 star. In the months following the surgery in which hardware was placed into my spine, I started to feel pain. He ignored second opinions that it was the hardware malfunctioning and maintained I was fine. Two years later I had the hardware removed after numerous visits to Dr. Kureshi with no help. It was in fact the hardware. Arrogant.
