After getting the run around from other Dr's with regards to my neck I did my own research and found Dr Ehteshami...THANK GOD! Dr E walked into the exam room and said, "I think you will benefit greatly with surgery" I almost cried. Someone finally understood the severity of the pain I have endured for years. I can't say enough about Dr E. He is an extremely talented Dr with many years of experience. I am now well on my way of recovering after cervical surgery. I already feel so much better. Thank You Dr E, You are an amazing Dr and person!

Dr. Ehteshami took his time with me to ensure I was comfortable with the diagnosis and type of action that would take place to resolve my cervical spine issue. I felt confident and knowledgeable when I left his office and appreciated that all my concerns were addressed professionally. End results were/are more than favorable. In my husbands case, he saved his life. We are very grateful.

Incredible Man and Doctor. I couldn't have asked for better and was recommended as the best by my pain management doctor whom I have the most respect for. His bedside manner is awesome and he knew everything about my issues before he even saw me the first time. He researched everything before my first visit and gave it to me straight. He also has an option to video your visit and you can review it online so you remember or can share with others what the doctor said. Amazing!

Dr. Ehteshami is the best in the medical field that I have had the opportunity to experience. He is forthright, trustworthy and is focused in providing the best possible care. It was my first time under anesthesia and any major surgery and I was made to feel completely safe. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking relief through orthopedic surgery.

The difference between a good doctor and a great doctor is Dr. Etheshami. I had what appeared to be a routine case but required additional attention that had the potential to become complicated. The doctor and I both studied engineering as undergraduate students. I mention this because I know how we were trained to think, especially when things detour from the norm. He identified the problem, and without hesitation implemented the solution, and my recovery is golng great. Operation 12/08/17

I have degenerative bone disease and Dr. Ehteshami has operated 3 times on my spine. He was very clear in informing me before each surgery what to expect after surgery. He even changed the dressing on my back when I was in the hospital this last time and the nurses commented that no Dr. does that, usually it's them.

After 8 years of being turned down by Mayo, The Core institute and numerous physicians due to having Marfans and an aortic aneurysm, this man listened to me when no one else would. While he didn't perform my surgery, he recommended the man who did and both improved my way of life dramatically. I thank him immensely for being THE ONLY physician in an 8 year span of time to correctly understand what I was going through and genuinely want to help.
