Dr. Pakzaban took great care of my daughter when he operated on her brain. He is very professional, compassionate and competent. Also has a great staff. We could not have asked for better.

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.

Wonderful neurosurgeon. The best in Houston.

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.

This guy is saint and capable of committing miracles.

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.
in La Porte, TX |
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 is an angel! He did my back surgery and I have had several appointments with him and I always have a good experience with him and his staff. Very professional and caring.

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.
