I am very happy to have found Dr. Jafarnia. I had been under the treatment of another surgeon who just wasn't helping me. After one visit with Dr. Jafarnia and his very professional staff I feel so much relief from my constant wrist pain. I still have tears today, but this time it is from happiness. Thank you!!

Dr. Jafarnia and his entire staff are first rate! I could not have been more pleased with the entire process from initial visits to follow ups after thumb surgery. He came highly recommended, and I see why.
