Dr. Rounaghi is an excellent orthopedic doctor who has great bedside manners. He listens to his patient's concern. He is working with me to resolve my health problems which includes a torn left miniscus and cervical spondylosis with radiculopathy. Physical Therapy is helping and MRI's of both my cervical spine and left arm may reveal more detail which is causing some numbness and tingling feelings in my left arm and hand. He is very thorough and is not a doctor who pushes you into surgery but instead takes a conservative approach and uses surgery as a last option!
