What People Say About Dr. Kaveh Khajavi, MD

My experience with Dr. Khajavi was excellent. His last solution for me for my back problems was surgery. That is the route we ended up going after trying PT and injections. The surgery went better than I expected and was able to leave the hospital the same day without an overnight stay. Recuperation went well and I was back to normal in two months.

Dr. Khajavi repaired my exploded T11 &12 vertebrae. He was very honest, sincere, and realistic with my expectations. He was meticulous removing bone fragments from around the spinal cord. Went to Dr Rhodts for a second opinion years later. He praised the work Khajavi performed and told me he did an excellent job. I agree and wouldn't have any other surgeon due to his results.

Excellent physician. Very down to earth and does explain your condition in detail easy to understand. My fusion procedure went just as planned. After years of severe back,leg pain and weakness I am able to finally walk without pain.He has to be one of the best in Atlanta!

I’m sure this doctor knows his stuff, but he just doesn’t seem to care very much. It felt like I was just another number to him. He didn’t seem to care about my comfort at all. I ended up going to a completely different neurosurgeon.

I had a great experience with Dr. Khajavi . He listened to everything I had to say, then after listening to his point of care plan for someone in my situation with terrible back pain, it was such a relief to know that through pain management and not surgery, hopefully I can deal with the pain better. He said however, if I should ever need to see him to come back. In my opinion, he's a very straight forward doctor and has his patients best interest at heart.

Dr. Khajavi took me in because I had a failed previous lumbar fusion elsewhere and couldn't get relief from the pain. He did an amazing job and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.
