Dr Nazerali took the time to explain all the options on a very complicated procedure and presented in easy to understand terms, the course of action that needed to be taken. I was in and out of the hospital with minimal pain and zero discomfort. Excellent work!

This incredibly compassionate and most gifted surgeon patiently guided me through Stage 2B triple negative invasive carcinoma of the left breast. He is an artist, an architect, and his skill levels are off the charts! He is sincere and honest in his communication and involved me every step of the way. Working scalpel to scalpel with the surgeon, he reduced the size of the right breast to match the size of the left breast once the cancerous tissue was removed and achieved fantastic results!!

Dr Nazerali performed my mastectomy after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a reconstructive breast surgery afterwards. Dr Nazerali and his team were very attentive and caring. Dr Nazerali gave his personal email address for me to contact him if I needed him. I had sent him an email on Saturday evening and same night he responded and gave me new pain medication. I was very impressed by his generosity, honest responses and his kindness. I highly recommend Dr Nazerali.

I was very fortunate to have Dr. Nazerali as my surgeon. He did a complete breast reconstruction after my mastectomy. He is not only a gifted surgeon, but he is one of the kindest, most compassionate people I have had the privilege to meet. He takes time to explain everything to the patient and he made sure I understood all of my options as he guided me through the surgery process. I never felt rushed and if I contacted him with a question, he always responded quickly. I highly recommend him.

Professional, personable, and kind! I could not have had a more positive surgery experience or been in better hands! Dr. Nazerali and his team were fabulous! I never felt rushed during my doctor visits, and all my questions were answered and explained clearly! Two surgeries later, I couldn’t be happier with my results! I highly recommend him!

Dr. Nazerali was a wonderful, caring surgeon. He offers a safe place for women to address a myriad of issues. He treated me with kindness, caring & concern for a successful surgical outcome. He was always available for any & all questions including those inevitable “bumps in the road”. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!

I highly recommend Dr. Nazerali. He is kind and understanding. He takes time to listen to concerns and answers questions. Dr. Nazerali provides superior care and is dedicated to his patients and work. I am so pleased with the final results of the two year process of breast reconstruction. In addition, his team and staff provide superior services.

Went to Stanford for a second opinion at my local doctors encouragement as i was a higher risk case and they wanted me to have docs with more experience review. Boy was that the best advise ever! My Doc was kind and honest and did an absolute amazing job... With a 200 lbs weight loss and still having some weight loss to go plastic surgery at this point wasnt the ideal time cosmetically. But for my health and ability to continue to loose it was critical to perform now. He did such an amazing job.

**Refused care because I was uncomfortable with having student present during initial consultation** After years of working up the courage to finally see a doctor for a cosmetic procedure that has been plaguing me, I was extremely disappointed at the way I was treated by Dr. Rahim Shiraz Nazerali. I left his office feeling belittled and absolutely shamed at my condition. He was over an hour late for a morning appointment and then when he finally did come into the room, before even speaking to
