Patient Comments (2)
in Carlsbad, CA |
I was recommended to Genesis Healthcare, and specifically to Dr Shirazi, to deal with prostate cancer. After I made the decision to use the Cybreknife method, Dr. Shirazi explained all of the procedure in detail so I knew what to expect. Four months later, after the treatment, I'm a happy guy. Dr. Shirazi is an extremely positive physician and has gained respect among his peers, and now myself, as a very competent and professional doctor.
in El Cajon, CA |
I came to Dr Shirazi after suffering over 8 years with Trigeminal Neuralgia. My pain req morphine. Dr Shirazi was extremely knowledgeable about my condition and confident in his ability to treat it with Cyberknife Radiation. The process was perfect for someone like me with claustrophobia. The results of the procedure were that my pain levels decreased slowly with fluctuations. A year has passed and the Trigeminal pain is now gone. It is an amazing result. Thank you.
