Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bazaz "My Approach to Treating Patients I believe it is my privilege to have you as my patient not the other way around. You deserve certain things when you come to Western Orthopaedics, P.C. (1) To be seen by me (not a nurse practitioner or physician assistant) in a timely manner. (2) A thorough evaluation. (3) An explanation of your diagnosis. When you leave our clinic it is my hope that you understand your diagnosis and treatment options. No surgery can be recommended until we develop a trusting relationship."

Dr. Bazaz is the best orthopedic surgeon that I’ve ever met. He was kind and thoroughly explained the knee surgeries that he’s done for me. I have him on speed dial if ever I blow out my knee again, which is likely soon.

Dr. Bazaz is one-of-a-kind. You'll never find a more knowledgeable, skilled, personable, caring doc on the planet. I send all my friends and family to him. He's the go-to surgeon for all our work staff. He's the best!

Steer clear of Western Orthopedics, pretentiousness from the moment you walk in the door and incompetency reigns specifically in the billing and the x-ray departments.

Dr. Bazaz is awesome! My husband went to him three years ago and had a great experience so I decided to see him for a shoulder injury.
