20/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. K. is the best specialist I have ever had to work with. His knowledge was extremely helpful, and his ability to convey it to my understanding couldn't have been more important; additionally, his confidence and positive attitude was contagious. I had a robotic radical prostatectomy and have been recovering at record pace. I highly recommend him!

29/10/13 5 5 5 5 went to my primary Dr, and a urine sample taken. I was told a small amount of blood showed, so he suggested me a local urologist. I searched the net for the best urologist within 100 mi from Valencia CA. and Dr Seyed M Khoddami, MD popped up as on of the top 9 Drs. I made the appointment on Friday and I had the apptm. made for next Monday (??? great) Very nice staff, waiting time or _ 10 min. I brought my ultrasound CD and was reviewed by Dr. Khoddami. The first thing he said when he walked in the room was " you are perfectly healthy". He discussed my symptoms at length and possible causes. He checked me over, went far and beyond the normal talk between patient and Dr, and my wife asked him several questions in relation to my ailment. (Possibly not drinking enough water). He was very attentive and his off hand interaction on how to explain and make us understand what was going on, was amazing !!! A million thanks to this wonderful doctor

22/10/13 5 5 5 5 Could not be more pleased! Dr. Khoddami explained the procedure in detail and gave calming reassurance, in not only the outcome, but his procedure as well. He takes a very conservative approach to the removal of tissue, which most likely contributed to the excellent outcome. The procedure and outcome exceeded my expectations and today I’m feeling like a new man. There was very little discomfort following the surgery and I was able to go home the following morning without any complications. The only down side was the bladder cath during recovery which was uncomfortable and annoying. I had very little visible signs of bleeding after the first few days and practically no discomfort. I never even passed any scabs during the healing process. I am able to void fully without any hesitation or pain! The office staff, nurses and practitioners were always upbeat, professional and courteous upon each visit and on time with the appointments.

24/06/13 5 5 5 5 The best urologist ever. Competent, personable and effisient. He operated on my uncle, who is a very hard to please individual, and saved his kidney from complete collapse. If it was not for Dr. Khodami, my uncle would have been on dialysis by now. His knowledge of new technological advances is what distinguishes him from others. He thinks outside the box, that is what every surgeon should do.  Respond

21/06/13 5 5 5 5 If I could rate the Dr.any higher I would. Dr.Khoddami,from our 1st visit and all subsequent appointments has made me feel at ease. The Dr. not only addressed the problem that I went in to see him about but on his own addressed other problems. His confidence is what I believe makes me feel that sucessful results are not only possible but very probable. Kudos to the entire staff as they deserve the highest rating as well.

29/05/13 5 4 5 5 Very pleasant and interesting to talk to and he seems truly caring and competent. The entire staff I've met are attentive and competent. I have been patient of his from prostate cancer treatment options, through DaVinci surgery, and three months of follow-up. My PSA test just came back at -0-, so prostate cancer is something I don't have to worry about the rest of my life.

22/08/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Khoddami is absolutely outstanding! He quickly diagnosed my kidney cancer. The “bad kind”. His outstanding state-of-art Da Vinci expertise saved 60% of my left kidney. And the next day both kidneys were fully functioning. Minimum pain and only 2 nights in hospital. Results: He got all of it. Follow up exam shows I’m cancer free. Thank you Doctor & PTL. An excellent professional and person. Who with genuine sincerity takes the time to care, listen, and explain with eye-to-eye great communication skills. Everyone else in their office is outstanding too. I highly recommend Dr. Khoddami.

05/10/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Khoddami is a very caring, helpful, and knowledgeable doctor. I was diagnosed with neurogenic bladder. After suffering for months with my ailment, he knew exactly what to do and had my condition well controlled which provided me with a better quality of life and kept me from being in the dctor's office every month with the same problem with a temporary fix! My problem had been ongoing for a couple years. He was wonderful!

07/09/11 5 4 5 5 Excellent Dr. I highly recommend. Usually punctual, but sometimes gets held up b/c he is very conscientious w/ every patient and takes as much time as one needs to answer all questions. Used state-of-the-art Da Vinci robotic surgery to save most of my kidney. Patiently spent 6 hrs on what was anticipated to be a 2.5 hr surgery. A lesser surgeon would have given up and extracted the entire kidney after 3 or 4 hrs. IMHO Khoddami is a saint! His staff is very polite and helpful.
