"I had the surgery almost one year ago and my back still feels great! I highly recommend Dr. Mazahery if you ever have back or spine problems and need surgery. In my opinion, he is the BEST!"
Joan A., Angie's List Review
"I saw Dr. Mazahery and felt like he was comprehensive and certainly didn't jump right to surgical options for my lower back issue, which I greatly appreciated. Too many surgical practices instantly want to go that route, and this was refreshing."
