  • Farshad Ghazanfari has been my physician for some 6 to 7 years. His knowledge & skills have reduced my pain & lack of walking ability due to his research, selection & application of new processes = my L knee is pain free & I am increasing my walking.

    Farshard is a very generous man with his time & skills. He is also very compassionate, caring & thoughtful to all his patients. His skills & knowledge have saved my wife Patricia twice over the years so that we can still enjoy each other.

  • EMSCULPT is a lifesaver and so is dr. farshad. I found the affects of it have lasted several months down and it gave my neurosurgery process a super speedy recovery. It’s pricey but how much I saved on physio was worth it.
