Dr. Kashani was wonderful from day 1. He is professional, compassionate and has a terrific sense of humor (which was very relaxing for me??). He took the time to listen and asked plenty of questions??. My bilateral mastectomy was extremely successful and follow up care superb! The office staff will return calls immediately and are really on top of things.

Dr. Kashani is very personable, but the best part was he did not rush the visit and made sure you understood the issues in great detail.

Dr Kashani has treated me twice for two different problems.A Pilonidal cyst and a Hemorrhoid Both times he avoided surgery. He is always honest and doesn’t push for surgery unless there is no other alternative. He explains things in detail and patiently answered any questions I’ve had.

Dr Kashani was patient, soft spoken, answered every question I had, reassuring and helped me to overcome any trepidation I may have had. In addition he has a fantastic sense of humor that helps put one at ease. If, heaven forbid, I ever need surgery again, I would want Dr Kashani to be my surgeon.

Dr Kashani and his staff, through the first time I saw him to the post surgery follow-ups, has been a very pleasant experience! He is very down to earth and doesn't sugar coat anything. The staff makes sure you're comfortable when waiting for surgery. Everyone was real nice and professional. I definitely recommend!

My mom Has been very comfortable with Dr. Kashani from the very first appointment up until the follow up visit after her surgery. He was very patient with my mom who tends to ask a lot of question despite the language barrier. He was compassionate and very understanding as to how difficult the situation could be for his patient.

Dr. Kashani was recommend by our family physician. He was unknown to us. He performed a delicate surgery on my husband. We were amazed at the outcome. He removed a very unusual growth attached to the colon involving cancer. It was removed completely with no need for chemo or other follow up procedure. He is a very caring, competent surgeon and we are so grateful for his skills. I would recommend him to anyone needing specialized surgery.

I went to Dr. Kashani for my hernia recommended by my aunt he did a sergeey on her. He was very understanding and explained everything and answered all my questions. If a question came to me I would call the office to which a very polite helpful and very profesional receptionist would help me with any thing she could, after when Dr. Kashani had time he would call and answer any other questions I would have. Excellent surgeon was awesome before my serguery and even more so after my sergury.

Dr. Kashani recently performed several procedures for my wife. I cannot express the appreciation I have for his positive, friendly and professional attitude. During the preliminary examination though surgery and post examinations. At every step of the process he always spent the time to answer any and all concerns my wife and I had. He explained what he had found and how the procedure would occur along with the most likely outcome. For me it meant a great deal, to have all the information
