Patient Comment June 2020
Dr Behnam was the most helpful doctor I had seen since my accident. ***. he still took the time to talk to me, helped wrap my wound, got me some bandages, and discussed with me why I needed to see an orthopaedic doctor instead of him. His care & kindness was outstanding
Patient Comment June 2020
I cannot say enough good things about *Dr. Behnam and the care he has provided my son over the last 2 months. His bedside manner is way above average and he has always kept my husband and I fully informed during visits and by personally calling or texting us. We could of not asked for a better plastic surgeon.
