I have seen Dr. Ganjianpour for the same issue, Decourvain's Tenosyvitis for both wrists, but about a year apart. He is very professional, courteous and explained everything very thoroughly. I am very at ease with Dr Ganjianpour and trust hisopinion. I would highly recommend him for any orthopedic issues, as he is knowledgeable and much more detail oriented than most doctors. Additionally, his staff is excellent. I just went today for the second wrist and I know that my issue will resolve shortly under Dr. Ganjianpour's care.

They called me at 8:50 and asked me to change my appointment from 11:15 to 9:00 because the doctor would not be in the office for my appointment. I asked why my appointment had been confirmed and they did not have a good answer.

Two hours to see the doctor for thirty seconds. Every step of the process was 2 minutes of progress (x-rays, or check-in, or checking out) and 30-45 minutes of sitting around waiting. Definitely felt like a cog in the system. Won'tbe returning. I don't have enough time for that and he clearly isn't interested in building a relationship with the clients. Seemed to be a good doctor but he's just processing WAY too many people each day. Oh and the kick in the pants on the way out, the parking garage fee was $17 for the 2 hours I had to park there waiting on him.

He and his colleagues gave me superb care! The wait time was less-than-good. I had about five phases come up from X-rays to consultations, and it took about 20 minutes between each quick task. Still, I walked away feeling empowered and educated, and trusted that I was in excellent hands!

Office was nice and clean, pretty organized as well. Everyone that worked there was pleasant. However, the wait time was ridiculously long and I felt like a cog in a machine...not what I would expect after waiting over an hour toeven see the Dr. and then have 5 minutes with his PA and 2 with him. Very frustrating considering the wait time.

Dr. Mark Ganjianpour has a fantastic staff and he was a very attentive and thorough doctor. He took the time to review my hip pain thoroughly and didn't just default to surgery at all as some have complained about. His physicianassistant/intern Alicia was amazing. I highly recommend both of them and their office staff. Nice office setting itself too!
