    Dr. Mehdi Habibi is an EXCELLENT Surgeon! He's patient and very sympathetic to patients needs. I was losing the use of my arms, could not hold anything in my right hand. My left arm and hand was numbing up. I saw a Neurologist who referred me to Dr. Mehdi Habibi, after an MRI and several test. After he did the surgery on my C-spine, a spine fusion, I regained the use of my arms. I saw him several times after the surgery and I always left his office knowing I was going to be ok.

    This doctor does not care about his patients he seems to be senile. cannot keep his patients straight he sends patients to other providers in physical therapy without feeling that there is going to be a successful outcome to their additional treatment. He just sends patients elsewhere to send them and really claim to be helping them has no care to be seeing them. Does not want to operate on patients unless it's the perfect situation. Does not need to still be practicing needs to retire

    Finally I have found a doctor that cares about me, listened and asked questions that helped to make a decision on treatment, informed and comfortable with him.
