“Dr. Karbassi is a wonderful doctor. He did a total ankle replacement on me. He was very honest with me and did an excellent job. Not long ago there were only ankle fusions and I was very concerned as I was told I would have a permanent limp. Dr. Karbassi assured me there would be no fusion he was doing a total ankle replacement. I am so happy to say I am in a much better place. I would recommend Dr. Karbassi to anyone. I can walk now and I have no severe pain afterward. He gave me a new quality of life and I will always be grateful to Dr. Karbassi.”

“Dr. Karbassi is terrific. I went to Dr. Karbassi in January after a fall I had in early November. My foot was still very swollen. I had seen another Doctor in the practice who miss diagnosed my injury. On that first visit with Dr. Karbassi, he said, "We will get to the bottom of this," and sure enough, he diagnosed my torn tendon even before he sent me to have an MRI, which confirmed his diagnosis. I found Dr. Karbassi to be very thorough, gentle, kind, and calm. He answered all my questions. On my third visit, he diagnosed arthritis in my left foot and gave me a cortisone shot. Which has helped, I can now put my shoes on without it hurting. I highly recommend Dr. Karbassi.”

“Dr. Karbassi performed surgery on my broken right heel. Prior to surgery he clearly and explicitly explained my options, surgery, or not. All decisions were mine, but his input made making my choice quite easy! At all times I felt that I was in very good hands, not only with Dr. Karbassi but also his entire staff. Should anyone reading this require a specialist in this field, I would highly recommend that you seriously consider Dr. Karbassi.”
