    This is the a repeat visit for a similar surgery and I specifically chose Dr Aryavand and his staff because of the excellent care and medical attention I have always received. I completely trust his medical expertise. The staff are highly qualified and extremely nice. It is always a pleasant and comfortable experience and I would recommend his services and the services of his team. Additionally the speed and follow up service is great. It feels very personalized which is very important to me.
