I had chronic lower back pain and Dr. Rad was a lifesaver. Unlike other doc's I talked to he listened and wasn't only thinking cut first. He suggested some non surgical options which I tried but ultimately when I chose surgery he walked me through every step and has been available for every question and concern since. Highly recommend him.

in Palmdale, CA |
Dr. Payman and staff are just GREAT! Saw him as a second opinion. He not only explained my surgery to me but also explained to me exactly what I should expect during recovery. Dr. Payman was so detailed, I walked out of his office with so much more knowledge that ever about my surgery. I chose to have him do my surgery. I am so happy I changed to him. I am only 3 months post op and already back to my normal life. Dr. Payman and staff are the best!

Dr. Payman and staff are amazing. Saw him in Lancaster and I could not be happier. He states I need surgery however said I could try conservative treatment first. I appreciate his honest opinion. Any other surgeon would have jumped do to my insurance being amazing.

Dr. Payman is an excellent Doctor. Very personable and great bed side manner. His staff is easy to work with and very helpful.

Dr. Payman is a very kind and caring surgeon. My surgery went off without a hitch. The last thing I remember before my surgery is everyone around me getting me prepped for surgery. The next thing I knew, I was in recovery. Dr. Payman performed an ACDF on my cervical spine, and I would gladly have another surgery in the future with him.
Highly skilled and compassionate surgeon. Have loved my experience with him and his office and highly recommend!!
