I'M MORE THAN HAPPY TO WRITING THIS REVIEW ON THE CENTER FOR CRANIAL & SPINAL SURGERY. MY BOYFRIEND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LUNG & BRAIN CANCER BACK IN SEPTEMBER OF 2007. THE DAY HE WAS DISCHARGED FROM THE HOSPITAL WE WENT AND MET WITH DR. AFSHAR. THE NEWS WAS NOT GOOD, KEVIN HAD...more 3 LESIONS IN THE BRAIN WITH MASSIVE EDEMA ALSO. WE WERE TOLD THAT HE HAD 6 MONTHS TO 3 YEARS TO LIVE. HE EXPLAINED OUR OPTIONS ABOUT WHOLE BRAIN RADIATION OR HAVING THE CYBERKNIFE PROCEDURE DONE. WE FELT THE CYBERKNIFE WAS THE BEST OPTION. SO DR.AFSHAR REARRANGED HIS SCHEDULE SO WE COULD HAVE THE PROCEDURE DONE A.S.A.P. SIX DAYS LATER HE WENT IN FOR THE CYBERKNIFE. HE WAS TREATED AND RELEASED WITHIN 3 HOURS. THE BEST PART OF THE CYBERKNIFE IS THAT IS NON-INVASIVE. THE HARDEST PART IS WE HAD TO WAIT 3 MONTHS TO SEE IF IT WORKED. BUT COME 3 MONTHS LATER WE GOT THE GOOD NEWS THAT ALL THE EDEMA WAS GONE AND THE 3 LESIONS WERE SHRINKING. KEVIN ALSO HAD TO GO THUR CHEMOTHERAPY WITH DR. IANNOTTI HIS ONCOLOGIST,WHO IS GREAT ALSO. IT'S NOW APRIL 2008 AND WE JUST HAD OUR FOLLOW UP WITH DR. AFSHAR AND PAUL AVIDON,PA-C AND THE NEWS IS STILL GOOD. NO NEW GROWTHS AND THE OLD ONES ARE STILL REDUCING. HIS CHEMEOTHERAPY IS ALSO WORKING AND HE'S IN REMISSION. KEVIN STILL HAS A TOUGH FIGHT TO GO WITH HIS TYPE OF CANCER BEING SO AGGRESIVE, SO ALL WE CAN DO FOR NOW IS DO OUR FOLLOW-UP SCANS AND HOPE FOR THE BEST. I WASN'T SURE IF HE WOULD OF MADE IT TO 2008 IF IT WASN'T FOR THE CYBERKNIFE, I KNOW THAT IT SAVED HIS LIFE. MY FATHER PASSED AWAY BACK IN 1999 OF BRAIN CANCER. THEY DIDN'T HAVE CYBERKNIFE AVAILABLE THEN, I SURE IT WOULD OF HELPED. I AM SO GRATEFUL WE HAVE IT NOW. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. AFSHAR & HIS WONDERFULL STAFF!!!! MICHELLE & KEVIN...............view less

This place is great. They've have x-ray and ER doc's but can handle little things too, like sprains, colds, and infections... the staff is great, they really go out of their way to serve you the best way they can. Got my flu shot there, and go back every time I can't get in ...moreto see my Primary Doctor. That's another good thing, they have great hours, open at 8 every morning, and stay open till 8pm during the week, but then have weekend hours too. I've gone in before work, and on Sunday when EVERYthing is closed. They even take my insurance. It's a ton faster and cheaper than the ER in a pinch, that's for sure. I can't say enough about the great expiriences I've had with them. Highly Reccomend!!!!view less
I am uninsured, have gone several times for minor illnesses and have seen the ARNP...I receive better care than when I had a primary doctor and insurance! Wait times have been minimum, friendly staff, and best of all ALWAYS a follow up phone call to see how I'm doing...
