Dr. Keshavarzi is an excellent and compassionate surgeon with a very confident and calming demeanor. He explains the procedure in detail and listens for any concerns without demeaning any frivolous questions I may have. Best of all, he solved my bothersome herniated disc and had me back to normal in no time. I would highly recommend him for any neurological procedure he would advise.

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 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.
