“Mr. Tahmassebi was fantastic at every stage of the process. I had an old and incredibly complex injury which Mr. Tahmassebi corrected. He took me through each step of the procedure and made me feel comfortable about my surgery. Through all my injuries over the years, Mr. Tahmassebi was the only physician to find a solution and help me gain a normal life again. Quite plainly the best surgeon I have had the pleasure of meeting.“

    Ramon successfully repaired a non-union scaphoid. The break occurred 10 years ago and was operated on by a different doctor. My wrist began to sporadically hurt again two years ago and culminated with a visit to Ramon where an x-ray immediately showed a clear break. He was pleasant, matter-of-fact, and confident. He acknowledged the importance of multiple points of view and reviewed my case with other surgeons. Post-op, I met Ramon on a scheduled basis for x-rays and assessments. He shared recovery expectations and evaluations and took the time to answer my questions. As my recovery progressed, he encouraged me to confidently use my wrist. I would highly recommend Ramon.

    Mr Tahmassebi ensured I fully understood my symptoms and condition, which enabled me to make an informed decision about surgical options. I am delighted with the results of my carpal tunnel surgery; my symptoms have greatly improved after just a few weeks. Mr Tahmassebi has provided excellent care (and aftercare) throughout the process.
