Dr.Nawabi was fantastic.The appointment led to surgery on my right knee,which went great.He is a wonderful surgeon concerned with the whole process giving detailed instructions on what is to be done for the healing process.Not a Doctor oroffice who operates on you and forgets about you until the bill comes due.He gives you the advice and confidence that you will be "game ready" for your goals. This is supported by his phenomenal office staff who dealt with my insurance forms,helping get timely approvals,and tedious forms required by job.This was all done with complete courtesy.Last and far from least is his P.A.Carly Lang,she is an absolute pleasure and consummate professional.An overall great experience and I know they have given me the best shot to be back in the game!Thank You!!
