Patient Experience with Dr. Bouraee
A dear friend referred me and I am so grateful! She solved a several year mystery, went above and beyond to find a second issue, solved both in the same procedure and did a fab job. Very grateful - have referred her to friends and strangers.

You will NOT be disappointed by anyone in these offices!
