Dr. Foroohar is knowledgable and kind. She prescribes conservative management before recommending surgery. She is truly an advocate for her patients. She testified in a workman's comp case for me to assure I would get the appropriate treatment for my back injury.
in Palatine, IL |
Dr. Foroohar is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor. Not only did she take time to explain my procedure to me, but also to my family members without rushing through it. I'm 3 weeks post-op and feel great. Almost all my original pain is gone now!
in Darien, IL |
She's very experience, detailed and extremely knowledgable on what she does. She's one doctor and surgeon you can trust with your issue specific to any of your spinal (based on what was done on me) or lumbar problems. You know she will do an excellent surgery as she speaks with authority and confidence as she has treated and experienced them throughout her career. She connects extremely well with her patient and provides the most appropriate advice.

I absolutely would and have recommended this Doctor Dr Foroohar is the most caring, efficient, and skilled doctor I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She is absolutely a patient advocate. She does what she says exactly when and how she says. She is timely from office visits, to hospital surgeries, and being released from the hospital. Working with her has been a very enjoyable stress free experience. Her office staff is the most organized, friendly and efficient I have ever seen
in Schaumburg, IL |
I just discovered that my cervical fusion did not fuse properly 2 years post op by an orthopedic doctor. Also the titanium screw is broken. I now have to have a 3rd surgery. There is just no fathomable way that she would not have noticed the bone was not fusing with all the x-rays taken and I was never informed. Though to me she seemed very meticulous and very good...I am utterly shocked to be in this fragile condition requiring a surgery to correct the last one. I will never return.
in illinois, il |
very detailed and took her time to explain everything. I had several question even though the surgery was very basic for her it was very important to me. She told me right off the bat that if you will never go back to the way I was and what did I want out of the surgery. I love her for being very upfront.
