Dr. Rounaghi sums up the appeal of his specialty in orthopedics this way: “I enjoy diagnosing a problem, formulating a treatment plan and watching a patient improve after being treated.” Dr. Rounaghi, who derives satisfaction from working with patients to increase their long-term mobility, says “I like to perform operations and enjoy seeing patients improve following surgery.”  The former high school basketball player enjoys spending time with family, traveling and mountain biking in his off hours.

Dr, Rounaghi was warm, pleasant, and professional. I didn't feel rushed at all. He explained what he felt I should do, but provided me with alternatives. And he spoke in language I could understand, so I didn't leave the office with any questions.
