SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Parvizi is the best doctor. I travel all the way from Reno that tells a lot!

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Parvizi respected my decision to not pursue surgery, and has been great with my questions now that I am going that way.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

If I could rate Dr. Parvizi & his team higher, I would! Fantastic experience.

Dr. Parvizi is a very caring doctor. Having issues relating to the brain are never easy to handle, but he was very helpful and took the time to explain.

Couldn't have been better! Dr. Pavesi instilled confidence and trust at first visit. Very thorough.
