Seems like a nice guy. People who work in the office are nice and easy to work with. Scheduling on the phone can be difficult because his office coordinator is rarely at her desk. Doctor does not spend enough time with patient and I feel like he doesn't really want to be bothered with too many questions. Also gave me a diagnosis of just two options after having unsuccessful injections. Live with my pain in my knee which is heading toward not being able to walk eventually(not being able to walk is my opinion but I do believe in another 5 years I won't be able to walk) or have a knee scope which he says may or may not help and could make it even worse. Mind you they say I'm too young for knee replacement. I just felt like after going there for almost a year now I'm left with nothing positive and I want a second opinion. Maybe he is right but I find it hard to believe that there is no good options for me and nothing will help. Also I had to ask an assistant just to get ibuprofen prescription. He offers no prescription pain help at all. All in all I'm not trying to trash the guy. He may be a fine surgeon and was friendly for the few seconds I saw him each time I came but he left me with more questions than answers in the end

I would recommend Dr Akhavan. Several years ago I tore 3 out of 4 major tendons in my knee and damaged some of the nerves. I can now walk without a brace and I have very little lasting pain. Which compared with the original diagnosis is great. Dr Akhavan worked with me and actually cared about my recovery.

I recommend this surgeon with great confidence. This man is caring, brilliant, down to earth, and very reliable. I am 17 years old and had a labrum repair 2 years ago due to a baseball injury. I am now back in the full swing or things lifting weights and playing baseball with no pain. I can do anything but pitch, mostly because I am scared. This man changed my life and I am now pursuing a career in orthopedic surgery because of what this man did for me.
