      I did not get the results nor information I expected. I'm sure he's been effective for others, just not me.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Fotuhi's Care Philosophy

      I love seeing patients. Every patient has his/her own story. I enjoy learning not only about their symptoms but also about their life's history, their goals for the future, their hobbies, and what things are important to them. Patients are not just a collection of symptoms; they are human beings with emotions, challenges, and aspirations. It is important for me to understand the root cause of their concerns and treat them as a whole. I often bond with my patients and treat them as if they are my own family members.
