Ratings for Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa
I was a patient of Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa for four years, as I battled two rounds of breast cancer. His arrogance never seemed to bother me, as it did my family, until the end. When my cancer came back, and I was diagnosed with stage IV IBC, he sat in his office and told me that he would perform a surgery that would remove all the infected area of skin the cancer had appeared on. He said he cleared his calendar so that he would ensure the surgery would go as planned. Also stating that he would perform frozen sections, so that during surgery, they could verify all of the margin's were clear of cancer. However, It turns out that Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa lied about the entire surgery. He didn't clear his schedule, and when the surgery wasn't able to start on time, he told me he might have to cancel because he had another surgery to attend to. When they were able to get me in 20 minutes later, I was relieved. I felt that this was my last/best chance to survive. During the surgery, without consulting anyone except the other surgeon in the operating room, he decided that he would only remove my breast implant and half the infected skin area. Taking it all would involve an agreed upon skin graft. I guess he was short on time, and wanted to make sure he could charge for two surgery's that day. In the end, he didn't take any frozen sections, and had no idea if he had aided in my cancer treatment plan. A skin biopsy could have been performed instead of this surgery to provide me with the same results. Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa is a selfish, narcissistic man, with a lack of empathy for his patients. If you're a cancer patient, I would highly advise you to look else where for a plastic surgeon. Don't put your life in his hands. This incident was reported to the Arizona Medical board.
My experience with Tamir Mosharrafa, MD has been exceptional from consultation through surgery through recovery. I have not only chosen Dr. Mosharrafa for multiple procedures, but I have put my word on the line by personally recommending him to a number of others. Every woman I have referred to Tamir has enjoyed the same kind of excellence and experience as I did.
