I am thrilled and astonished with the care I received during my outpatient wrist surgery by Kodi Azari at SM Orthopedic surgery center. I had very invasive surgery and was treated with the utmost care, compassion and reassurance by his team. Probably 15 different practitioners crossed my path that day during the 5 or so hours I was there, and it unfolded like a carefully choreographed ballet. I was professionally "handled" by each member. I was sent home with an On-Q nerve numbing device that for a few days after surgery served to keep me pain free without opioids - which amazed me...and a doctor called me personally for 5 days after surgery to check in. I wouldn't wish this surgery on anyone, but have to say, for what it was, I'm tremendously thankful for the care that I was given. My follow up visit with Dr. Azari revealed a scar that was barely visible.

I wish I could tell you Dr. Azari was professional, caring, and compassionate, but never had the chance to even meet him. Tried for six weeks (and six follow-up phone calls) for an appointment and couldn't even get a call back. Extremely unprofessional staff and as the old adage goes "it starts at the top".
