Patient Reviews

I couldn't be happier with my new knee. Spent 23 years with a failed Patella Femoral Replacement and this really is a new knee and a new lease on life. I am extreemly grateful to this Doctor and his staff. After reading some of these reviews I am reminded of the lack of personal responsibility people take for themselves. The positive comments coming from positive people. The negative are a bunch of victims. Get over it. The staff is overwhelmed because of how busy they are and our governmental medlings in all things now a days is a reality that took my knee approval 10 months to get. But once I got it. There was minimal wait and the hospital staff at Methodist was very impressive. Having had 13 surgeries now I have experience. Be patient to get to a great doctor or not. Be blessed no matter what.

Dr. Khasagian is an awesome surgeon. These outlandish negative reviews are from crazy people (in my opinion). I showed up for surgery and the prep team and nurse (not associated with him or his office) told me that I am in good hands and he is one of the very best surgeons. I had him for an ORIF shoulder surgery with a rotator cuff tear and he did a great job back in May 2018. Very confident and very good and experienced for these surgeries. The office staff is oftentimes overwhelmed from the shear volume of patients so just be patient and follow up and stay on top of things while waiting to get your referral or procedure approved. As you know the admin side of the healthcare industry is about as inefficient as it gets these days with lots of paperwork pushing. That being said, I highly recommend Dr. Khasagian if you need an ORIF surgery and rotator cuff repair. More than happy with the results. He's old school and a straight shooter but he's on the cutting edge with surgical procedures.

I was so shocked reading these negative reviewd of Dr. Khasigian. He was my surgeon that did total knee replacement surgery on on both of my knees. Amazing experience pre and post surgery. Great staff. He's grest!
