      Dr. Nabavi did 2 surgeries on my mother and was going for a third one unfortunately my mother's brain tumor had spread and that third surgery didn't happen. He saw my mother every week after her first surgery and also checked in frequently at the hospital when my mother would be there. Very straight forward doctor.

      The office staff is great and my first visit with Dr. Nabavi I felt went ok. But the second visit, he never looked at my face, never review my test results with me in detail, told me I might have something else, and sent me out for yet MRI #4. When I asked questions regarding my tumor the answer was we will see when the time comes. For me you can't tell someone they either have MS or a spinal cord tumor and not answer their questions. The second visit took all of 3 minutes.

      If your doctor becomes unavailable, the office will NOT transfer you to another physician within the practice (the Institute of Brain and Spine Surgery) unless you have an "emergency". In my situation, my case was abandoned completely; the office refused to schedule me with another surgeon, and I was never contacted again. Of note, I had suffered a serious neck injury, so it wasn't as if I had a minor matter. Also, the office looked like a hovel, and Dr. can't explain bone healing accurately.

      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.
