This guy crippled my wife. Do not let him do surgery. She is in constant pain and now disabled after he was called in on an emergency fusion. It's been a terrible experience.

If I could give a -100, that's the score I'd give. After waiting to see him, you're literally lucky to get 5 minutes, as he stands by the door. He just doesn't care. Never would I recommend him to anyone. Never. My experience with Dr. Ghodsi has been a nightmare I can't wake up from. Life as I knew...more
