Dr. Rounaghi is amazing However the appointment line is ridiculous. I inform everyone I know that Dr. Rounaghi is amazing, but getting an appointment is a painful process. Be prepared to spend A LOT of time on hold waiting to speak with someone to schedule an appointment. And don't ask to have someone call you back instead of staying on hold. I never get called back.

Dr Rounagi is a very sweet man, as are the other orthopedists in that office. They are 95% on time to get you in and out of the office. Sometimes, there is a little wait,but only because of some surgeries that take a little longer, but I totally understand.
