He spent less than 5 minutes with me. Didn't want to hear about passed back problems. He didn't want to hear that I had the pain management injections several years ago (8 up on side and 8 down the other side) that didn't help. I didn't even have a chance to tell him that it hurts to stand, sit or lay down. He left me feeling that the pain in my lower back was all in my head. I have been going to my primary care doctor for antiinflammation injections and that they haven't done any good.

Dr. P performed a discectomy on me in April 2020. I was in extreme pain. I could not sleep, sit, stand, walk ...I was miserable! Now, I feel like a brand new person! I’m a registered nurse and did my research before seeing Dr. P, and let me tell you, he completely exceeded my expectations. I was extremely afraid to have surgery but I have no regrets. My appreciation for such a talented, brilliant soul, is beyond measure.

Dr. Pakzaban did my first lumbar fusion in 2008 and my most recent in 2018. I was told by several doctors before my first operation that if it were them Dr Pakzaban would be the only one to operate on their back. I am in total agreement, as I’ve had 2 successful operations now. We even brought my mother in law to him for a neck fusion. He is an excellent surgeon and is held in the highest esteem by fellow doctors and patients as well. I would highly recommend him

Back in 2011 I needed neck fusion surgery. Dr.Pakzaban did the surgery and I had an excellent recovery with my pain and problems completely eliminated and no further problems at all. So in Nov. 2017 when I knew I needed lower back surgery Dr. Pakzaban was who I knew I needed to go see. He evaluated my situation and confirmed what I thought I needed. He advised me I needed to have L5 and S1 fusion surgery. He said that my problem could not be corrected by decompression surgery. I have since had

After reviewing my MRI film Dr Peyman Pakzaban showed me exactly how he would correct the acute condition causing my disabling pain, but also made it clear that surgery would not relieve chronic long-term arthritis pain. I appreciated his honesty, and trusted that he could and would help me. My successful micro-surgery was nine days ago and I've had minimal pain, with no complications. Thank you Dr. Pakzaban, Bayshore Day Surgery team, and all of my nurses and support personnel!

Dr. Pakzaban is wonderful. He operated on my mother's neck and took her pain away. The surgery and the aftercare were great. He is very professional and considerate. We couldn't ask for a better surgeon or surgery experience.

Surgery was performed well. It's the aftercare that's the problem. He's nowhere to be found and only wants to prescribe medication from afar. Started my grandfather on muscle relaxers post-surgery to help with twitching when his kidneys only function at 20 percent. They put him in a coma and he is STILL in ICU with now a trach and unable to control CO2 levels. Everything would have been fine if he would have taken the time to come and talk to us in the hospital instead of prescribing from afar

Not so good experience 1 month ago~. From the staff to Dr. P it seemed like he was in a rush! and pain dealing with office bills/insurance. Also look at other patient reviews on google.

Dr Pakzaban did a Laminectomy on my L4- L5 lumbar spine. I had been in extreme pain & woke up from the surgery pain free! He is the best.

He is the most considerate Doctor/surgeon i have ever dealt with. He did anurism surgery on my mom and then brain surgery on me. Never once did i feel nervous with him. He always returned calls after hours with questions we had. Very good bedside manner. He is a life saver !

Dr. Pakzaban took one look at my photos back in March and said "We need to do the surgery Monday." I told him to give me a few weeks to handle my affairs. Well needless to say, I had to have surgery sooner than later. I stayed over night in the hospital and was up and walking outside two days later. My pain was very minimal considering I had 3 bones replaced in my neck. I was completely free of meds within 4 days. I searched high and low for the perfect surgeon. He was a God send.
