Dr Massodi performed a back surgery on my mother about 2 month ago and he did such an exceptional job. My mother was up and walking one week after her spin surgery. My mother is so happy with the surgery and Dr Massodi that she asked me to write this comment for him, so others who are looking for a great neurosurgeon would consider and look him up.

Dr. Massoudi recently performed spinal fusion surgery on me. It is too early to determine the efficacy of the operation; but, Dr. Massoudi appears to be a very competent neurosurgeon. However, during a final pre-surgery visit I was advised that I would need a back brace and that I should be fitted for one before leaving the office. I left the office with a back brace. Three weeks after the operation, Massoudi Inc. sent me a statement wherein I discovered that Massoudi, Inc. had billed my insurer $1455.75 and had been reimbursed in the amount of $726.33. Massoudi, Inc. billed me an additional $128.17 to cover the disparity between the reimbursement and what they wanted for the back brace. Massoudi Inc. received total compenation in the amount of $854.50 when the actual retail cost of the brace is approximately $279. Massoudi Inc. could have fitted me and then told me I could purchase the brace on the open market for $279. They didn't.

Late husband suffered a massive stroke after brain surgery to remove a brain tumor. His carotid artery was "accidentally nicked".

Office staff must take a lot of heat and it shows(or is it arrogance?) It takes forever to get an appointment and then you get bumped and rescheduled and bumped again weeks later. I can only imagine how bad post-op follow-up must be.

Though a top rated neurosurgeon, this physician has no ability to work in patients who are having complications from surgery that he performed. I had to wait 2 months after noticing a complication from a spine surgery he recently did. I waited the 2 months for the FIRST AVAILABLE APPT, only to have them call and cancel it 2 days before--he was "too busy". The next available appt they could possibly schedule was ANOTHER 6 WEEKS AWAY. Though he is a skilled surgeon, he is simply too busy to see you if you need unexpected care after surgery. I'd look elsewhere, regretably. I'm picking up my records and trying to get in to see some other neurosurgeon.

Excellent doctor, compassionate, able to address my issue that need to be urgently taken care of. I had a Cervical Disectomy with Plate and Screws. Every radiologist and doctor who has seen my films told me this Dr. did a great surgery one me.

While this doctor performed back surgery on my late husband, to replace discs and fuse vertebrae by anterior approach, his aorta was torn and my husband bled to death. This is supported by the coroner's report and the death certificate. I was not informed that the aorta would be retracted during this surgery.
