I broke my wrist pretty badly 6 mths ago. Dr Ghalambor's office got me scheduled for surgery the same week. The office staff coordinated my insurance authorization. Dr Ghalambor did an amazing job with my wrist, 75% functional, recovering well and can hardly see the scar. It takes a year to be fully functional, so I'am doing pretty good. The OT team is great. Very pleasant and has great bed side manner.

I highly recommend this doctor if you are looking for a well rounded doctor. Even though he is an orthopedic surgeon, initially he recommended a non-surgical approach for my shoulder pain which has been helpful. He is very caring and thorough.

I recently broke my arm while out of the country. It was a break that required surgery and a plate/pins and Occupational Therapy afterwards. Dr. Ghalambor and his entire staff were very caring and helpful in getting me scheduled upon my return home. Dr. Ghalambor even canceled a prepaid conference that he was looking forward to in order to perform my surgery on a Friday. He went above and beyond the call of duty. In the few days before surgery I discovered he'd also helped 2 of my friends.
