I have just had surgery from Dr Afshar. I feel absolutely GREAT.! Back and leg pain are gone. He is a great Dr. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs spinal surgery. I had cervical surgery from him a few years ago and the results are perfect. Not a twinge of pain since. RT

A referral was sent to Dr Afshar a month ago from Vero Orthopaedic. Today I was told he will not see my w/o any explanation. If I want to see another MD the Apt. will be in 2 1/2 months from now. Atleast give me the courtesy as to why he will not see me.
