Larry had a Tracheotomy due to a hit and run accident he suffered while volunteering with the Veterans in our Community. The trachea was in for over four months and after removed would not close up. Dr. Lakhani tried to use method without surgery but realized quickly surgery was needed. He was through in explaining everything that would happen before and after surgery. Because of several operations resulting from this accident, Dr. Lakhani was super caution and had a second blood test to be sure he was stable enough for the surgery. The surgery was a huge SUCCESS. We cannot say enough about the "Team Lakhani"- - Heather Wilson, Kristi, Christine, Janet and apologizes to those we missed. You were so knowledgeable, efficient, kind and friendly at ALL TIMES. On our final visit, everyone came in to see how Larry was doing, Dr. Lakhani was in the office, made a special effort to come in, checked out Larry's stitches. He was pleased as we are. Hurrah for this Magnificent Team.

I was first referred to Dr. Lakhani a decade ago for a skin cancer reconstruction on my face. I was extremely nervous and concerned about the procedure and the possible outcome. He did a beautiful job on the reconstruction and his manner completely put me at ease. Since then I have had the opportunity to utilize his talent for several cosmetic procedures. He and his team are wonderful. I never feel pressured into doing a procedure or treatment and Dr. Lakhani always takes so much time answering all my questions both before and after treatment.

Do not trust him with facial plastic surgery - he screwed up my nose. Nice guy, I'm sure he's great for ENT stuff, but NOT PLASTIC SURGERY.

A doctor is only as good as the staff, and his staff is horrible. They give idiotic answers and seem to delight in being stubbornly unhelpful and illogical. I used to recommend him highly, but his practice has gotten too big, busy, and full of itself.

Dr. Lakhani is one of the best doctors I have encountered in a long time and I work in a hospital. His bedside manner is so incredible! He's polite and made me feel at ease about my surgeries. He also presented himself professionally to my family after the surgeries and made them feel relaxed. I highly recommend him.

Horrible Experience, My face will probably never look natural again. Wish I had never heard of him. If only their was a way to go back to the way I looked before the procedure.

This guy "dr. raam lakhani" Damaged my Face, He talks like he knows what he's doing but is useless as a facial surgeon. If you want a Boob job he may be competent. If you need Facial Surgery go find a real Facial Surgeon, Take your time as his Damage cannot be undone easily. I suggest talking with at least 3 Real Facial Surgeons before committing to anything, and by all means Run, Run, Run away from dr. Lakhani.

I would never return to the office. It was a demeaning experience with unhappy staff who were rude and inconsiderate with the exception of one individual. The trickle down effect from doctors who must condone, what in my opinion was a toxic environment was astonishing. I was belittled by an LPN for an allergy I have had for years. Eyes balls were rolled when I tried to explain my issues although it turned out my condition can be life threatening.
