I would and always have recommended Dr. John Kayvanfar to all of my family and friends. He is not only very knowledgeable in his field of specialty, but in many other areas, which can help reduce pain, and harm to our body, joint, and bones. He who does not just prescribe medication to relieve pain, but he actually finds the root of any issues and problems, and tries to treat his patients to get better by finding the cause of the problems. He has helped patients on wheelchair walk again.
