From start to finish, Dr. Baghi was both professional and knowledgeable. He really took the time to review my husband's records and discussed a plan of treatment with us that did not, thankfully, involve surgery. His PA was also very thorough and treated my husband very kindly.

Dr. Baghai had to do an emergency discectomy on me when I was 5 months pregnant. The herniation was so severe my bladder was not functioning. I feel blessed that he was willing to take on the responsibility of helping me. It was a difficult surgery and I made it through.
