Ratings for Dr. Mina Foroohar
I was very pleasantly received by Dr. Foroohar and her staff. Dr. Foroohar was very professional and concerned about the issue of back and leg pain. She was excellent at explaining in detail the problem I had and how she and her team could relieve my worsening pain. From the first office visit to the most recent visit and all hospital time, Dr. Foroohar ,her associates and office staff have been a great help. Pre-op , surgery and post-op were difficult times for me, but the concern and abilities of Dr. Foroohar and her staff made my experience comfortable. Thank you !!!
Dr. Foroohar performed my cervical spine fusion. My neck is much improved after only 4 months, and the scar is almost nonexistent already. A plastic surgeon couldn’t have done better. She is professional, thorough, kind, takes time to listen to every concern and addresses them all. I would recommend her to my family and friends, and I will use her again in future for my lumbar problems. The efficient office staff makes everything easy. I feel very fortunate to have found her.
Dr. Foroohar combines excellent credentials with gifted skill, clear communication and a calming bedside manner. I am a 64 y/o female w/ cervical spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease. Dr. Foroohar’s approach is conservative and she has operated on me twice: 2010 - C5/6 and C6/7 were bone on bone and 2017 - a large osteophyte complex created cord compression at C4/5. Both surgeries - one elective and the other an emergency - had excellent outcomes. I was at Northwest Community Hospital overnight as an outpatient each time and never needed pain meds after discharge. Dr. Foroohar is the sole practitioner at Northwest Neurosurgery Institute so she gives her patients highly personalized, attentive care unlike the large practices and her staff (Ashley and Jessica) manages the most efficient office I have ever experienced. Dr. Foroohar is simply the ‘best of the best’ and everyone I talk to at Northwest Community Hospital (nurses and physical therapists alike) agrees and they should know!
I thank my lucky stars for finding Dr Foroohar. Suffering with Spinal Stenosis for many years my right leg got worse and worse. Finally had to do something about it. From my initial office visit to my latest office visit, it's been my best doctor visits by far. The two day surgery/hospital stay was uneventful, thanks to the great care provided and directed by Dr Foroohar. Don't delay, if you are suffering or in pain go see Dr. Foroohar. You to will be thanking your lucky stars.
Dr Foroohar excellent. She answered all my questions and was not in a rush to push surgery. She had me try several non surgical treatments first, and did several different tests, so she could know exactly which way to proceed. Once we decided surgery was the best option, she scheduled me quickly. The office staff is just as good to deal with. I would recommend Dr Foroohar to my friends and family.
Dr. Foroohar is the most professional and skilled Neurosurgeon! I have had three major surgeries, with the latest being a Lumbar Fusion. This was a complete success, as was the surgery Dr. Foroohar performed a year prior for crushed vertebrae in my neck. She is a true professional, and will always take the time to discuss any questions you may have pre surgery, or post op. She is calm, extremely intelligent and never makes you feel rushed during any appointments. Her office staff is excellent, which makes the entire experience the absolute best.
