Dr. Ghaemmaghami is an amazing doctor and surgeon. During my office visit and prior to my surgery, he was very considerate, patient, and took the time needed to answer each and every one of my questions. He was also very reassuring during this difficult time in my life. I would highly, and gladly, recommend him to any one of my precious family members or friends should they ever need an amazing doctor and surgeon. Thank you Dr. Ghaemmaghami, for your outstanding care!
