Mr.

Excellent diagnosis, surgery and aftercare. The thorough and thoughtful approach to solving orthopedic problems unique to me are much appreciated. I'm very optimistic about my recovery and the future use of my knees in my active life. Very appreciative the emphasis was on healthcare over profit for its own sate.

Excellent Treatment

With Dr. Fareed's 30 plus years of experience treating difficult orthopedic conditions, I felt confident that he could help my adhesive capsulitis. After performing hydroplasty to my shoulder, I felt immediate relief, and my range of motion improved significantly. He and assistant Jeanne are the team that saw to each and every detail, and question I had, while fulfilling and exceeding my expectations. His treatment will allow me to return to full function as a textile artist.

Simply Amazing

In one visit Dr. Fareed was able to fix what I've spent 6 years trying to fix on my own or with other doctors advice. Avoided unneeded exams and surgery that was being pushed by others. Left his office pain free.

Kindest Doctor I've ever met

I have been going to Dr. Fareed for about 6 months now. He has been treating my neck and back pain with trigger point injections...something I had never heard of before I met him. I've gone to see many top doctors in Southern California, but here's why Dr. Fareed is so incredible: 1) He is a surgeon who will do anything to avoid surgery 2) he actually LISTENS to you 3) he actually CARES about you 4) he knows his stuff 5) he SPENDS TIME with you, sometime as much as an hour(!) but never less that 20-30 min. There is a reason why I drive 180 miles roundtrip for each visit, and why people have flown in from all over the country to consult with him. I have not used him for surgery, but I'm sure he's the best. My only issue is that he is not contracted with any insurance providers. You pay for his services upfront, then you are reimbursed by your insurance co. This is explained in detail in your first visit, so not a surprise, but you might want to check in advance how much your insurance co. will pay for his services. Can't recommend him more highly.
