Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Visited Dr. Khajavi for a second opinion on shoulder surgery. He was on time, reviewed the MRI results, and answered all our questions and provided a lot of information that the proposed surgeon did not. Wife ultimately decided to forgo the surgery after our discussion with him. We were very impressed by Dr. Khajavi, and if or when surgery becomes necessary would definitely have him do it.

I had a right rotator cuff issue that was handled beautifully by Dr. Khajavi. I had a torn bicep tendon, torn rotator cuff tendon, bone spurs, arthritis on my collar bone and bursitis on my clavicle. Dr. Khajavi took the time to explain everything in detail about the issues and procedures. The surgery was a complete success. I am a 56 year old male who is very active and was back to normal activities in 1 year (Weight lifting & Tennis). His staff was great too!

I had a torn meniscus and acl. Dr Khajavi recommended no surgery just physical therapy. I wasn't to sure about this because I am still very active at 59. Long story short at 6 months I was back to biking, hiking and pickleball with a brace. A year later, I would say I am 99.9 percent back to normal. I still wear a brace for pickleball for added protection. Thank you Dr Khajavi for not putting me through an unnecessary surgery.

Dr. Khajavi repaired my torn meniscus last year. He was very attentive, and I felt that he spent the right amount of time with me. The surgery was excellent, with little healing time, and my knee is perfect today! I would highly recommend him.

I just had my right knee replaced 4 weeks ago. I can't be happier. Dr. Khajavi is wonderful, he took the time at each of my pre-ops to explain the procedure what I should expect and answered my questions and concerns. Everyone from check-in to check-out at the hospital was amazing. The staff at his office and at the hospital were wonderful. His PA Joel Tetzlaff is very nice and always has a smile. Makes you feel comfortable.

Dr. Khajavi has repaired my left torn rotator cuff (2015), and replaced my right knee (2016). Great, caring surgeon, makes extra effort to see me on short notice for follow-up; answers all questions completely. He has assembled a great staff including PA Joel Tetzlaff. The physical therapists who work under his direction are knowledgeable and professional and push clients as needed to get great results.
