I felt safe with someone who knew what he was doing. I think he takes pride in what he is doing and cares about his patients. We are just not a number to him.
His bedside manner put me at ease. I would recommend him to all and would trust him with my loved ones.
Very thorough, informative about everything and I feel confident.
Dr. Keshavarzi and his staff were amazing! From the office visits, to his bedside manners, I felt at ease and confident with my surgery. His compassion towards the patient is evident. Thank you Dr. K, I feel I have my normal & pain free back!
Dr. Keshavarzi was and is like a breath of fresh air in Bakersfield. I am grateful for his vast experience and ability to methodically diagnose. I came in with a 26 year back damage, pain and a failed surgery. His plan and surgery were executed well and six months later I have recovered.His kind and thoughtful communication with me and my family went above and beyond expectations. His bedside manner is superb.
He repaired a disc and inserted a plate in my neck. I had bone spurs that were touching nerves every time I moved that sent excruciating pain up the back of my neck in to my skull. He completely eliminated that for which I am forever grateful. My scar is minimal and I am a very satisfied patient!
Dr Keshavarzi is very knowledgeable and thorough. He explained everything completely as he went along.
I was very apprehensive about having surgery on my neck but Dr. Keshavarzi convinced me that it was needed ASAP. I have to say I was amazed at how little discomfort I experienced. Very Happy!
Dr. K is a kind, gifted surgeon. Fast appointment time. Great bed side manner. Explains everything very clear. Will take his time. Very pleased, no more pain.
Dr. Keshavarzi is an amazing person and doctor. My experience with him has been nothing but fantastic. After my surgery I no longer have pain and am feeling 100%.
in Lake Isavella, CA |
Dr. Keshavarzi is exceptional. After reviewing my MRI, Dr. Keshavarzi showed me the problem areas of my spine, and explained in terms I could understand exactly where my condition was at the present, what could happen if left untreated, and what he could do to help. The decision was mine to make. I am glad I decided to have the surgery, and highly satisfied with Dr. Keshavarzi's skill as a surgeon.
Horrible experience. Very inappropriate. Does not belong in Bakersfield
