Dr. Moftakhar saved my dad's life. He spent a lot of time with me explaining the situation and made it easy to understand.
in Columbia, SC |
There is no doubt Dr. Moftakhar saved my life with the brain surgery he performed on me October 22, 2016. The first time I saw him I could barely walk, suffered from incontinence and every joint in my body ached. I could barely make it out of bed each morning. I was very afraid when he told me I needed to have the surgery. I placed myself in the hands of this doctor and my heavenly father. Six month later, 73 year and as God is my witness I feel as if I am in my forties again. Thank you Doc
