Doctor Jeswani did my 2 level artificial cervical disc replacement. I am pain free for the first time in over 20 years. He was absolutely WONDERFUL to work with. He is caring, understanding, and so helpful with all the questions I had. He is an incredibly skilled surgeon, and is very easy to talk to. I would recommend him to anyone. After suffering debilitating chronic pain and issues with strength of my right hand/arm, I am finally enjoying life to it's fullest - pain free.

Dr. Jeswani was very caring and took his time getting to know me and my concerns as a new patient. He took his time to explain what was wrong and options to correct it. He was very relaxing to be around. Excellent care and thank you Dr. Jeswani!

My family and I truly believe the Dr. Jeswain saved my life. I had a emergency ruptured brain aneurysm with very chance of survival but Dr. Jeswani's brillant expertise and dedication brought me back from death and performed my life saving neurological surgery. I know he went above and beyond most neurosurgeons. Thank you Doctor.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Jeswani and the staff. From scheduling and having a cancellation open up and my appointment being moved ahead by the knowledgeable staff who helped me to the expertise of Dr. Jeswani and the hospital, I am very happy with my entire experience.
