Horrible Doctor

This doctor is a horrible human being matched only by the in his practice. I was admitted to Martin Memorial for what I learned was a herniated disc in my cervical spine. I was discharged and referred to the back and spine center. I left several messages and when I finally spoke to somebody they told me they wouldn't see me and referred to the Dr who did my lumber surgery 9 years ago. I told them I was in too much pain to make the long drive but they refused to even make an appointment for me

Thank You, Dr. Ashfar

When I first met Dr. Ashfar, I was in intense pain and could only walk with a cane. He reviewed the MRI, explained to me what the problem was and what he would do to correct the problem. He said it in terms I understood and I left the office confident I had the right Dr. He operated a week later and I walked out of the hospital unaided two days later. Dr. Ashfar gave me my life back and I am grateful to him. I would highly recommend him. He is a very gifted Doctor.

Lower back surgery

Dr. Afshar performed surgery to fuse L4-L5 and to decompress nerve roots in the L4-L5 area as well as the L5-S1 area. He encounter a large cyst that was not visible in the MRI as it was so highly compressed. He dissected the cyst from the nerves taking about 2.5 hours of microscopic surgery. The outcome was excellent. I am very confident in Dr. Afshar and would confidently recommend him.
