Dr. Khoynezhad

"I was referred to Dr. Khoynezhad by my cardiologist due to the complex procedure needed to repair my aortic root. I had my aortic valve replaced with a mechanical valve and ascending aorta graft in 2004. My last check up the root had enlarged. An appointment with Dr. K explained the procedure and the risk. I scheduled my surgery at Long Beach Medical Center. Dr K saw me every day I was in the hospital. I am so glad I was referred to Dr. K and his staff for my surgery. After 9 weeks, I am back to work feeling great.

Thank you to Dr. Khoynezhad, office staff Laila & Rebecca, and Long Beach Medical Center. "

"Dr. K. and staff did a fantastic job prior, post and the surgery it self. The procedure was thoroughly described and all questions addressed in a manner you could understand. Dr. K has a great sense of humor that makes you feel at ease. The operation for me was easy with little pain and a fast recovery and rehab. I highly recommend Dr. Khoynezhad and staff and thank them for a successful surgery."
