“Dr. Zandifar and his team were spectacular”

 

Dr. Zandifar and his team were spectacular. The damage cancer had done on my forehead was significant, but they did a wonderful job reconstructing the skin. Dr. Zandifar was always caring and considerate throughout and made the whole process easier and less worrisome.

 

“Dr. Zandifar was professional, courteous, and assuring”

 

Dr. Zandifar did an excellent job repairing my nose after removal of basal cell carcinoma using MOHS surgery. After the removal of the skin cancer, I had a dime size defect on the tip of my nose which freaked me out. Dr. Zandifar was recommended and we repaired the defect using a flap method which ultimately turned out nicely, limiting the scarring and discoloration. Dr. Zandifar was professional, courteous, and assuring through a semi traumatic sequence of repair on my face. It’s still early in the healing phase, but so far everything is turning out as expected and I am satisfied with the result so far, which was difficult to deal with at first but not any more.

 

“He genuinely cares about his patients and will listen to their concerns”

 

I cannot adequately express my admiration and respect for Dr. Zandifar, and my deep appreciation for all that he has done for me. When my skin cancer was discovered and could not be adequately treated by my dermatologist, Dr. Zandifar took me in on a minute’s notice, and immediately set out to address and help solve the problem. What really impresses me about Dr. Zandifar is that, besides being a very competent and capable surgeon, he takes the time and interest to listen to his patients. He genuinely cares about his patients and will listen to their concerns.

He treats people with such care and respect, never hurrying them, always showing such interest and concern. This makes such a difference. I have great respect for Dr. Zandifar and have great confidence in him and his abilities. Whosoever I come across, I sing his praises and would recommend him without any hesitation to anyone who needs a good surgeon. I feel very blessed that my dermatologist, Dr. Kormeli, recommended him to me. He has made a huge difference in my life and in my prayers I thank God that he is my doctor. I am and will always remain very grateful for all that he has done for me.

 

“The results of the procedure are amazing”

 

Dr. Zandifar and his staff are absolutely wonderful. When I came in for my procedure, I was pretty anxious. That was quickly changed by Dr. Zandifar and his two wonderful assistants. They were kind and gentle, carefully explaining the process to me, and to top it off, the results of the procedure are amazing! I can barely see the scar. I whole heartily recommend Dr. Zandifar.

“I would confidently recommend OHNI to friends and family”

Basal cell removed, referred by Dr. Kormelli for reconstruction. Procedure went smoothly, received ongoing details from Dr. Zandifar through all of it. Dr. Zandifar is very methodical and takes great care in his work. Easy, comfortable treatment, and he is always more than willing to explain in detail anything you may request. Overall, it has been a smooth, positive experience, both with Dr. Zandifar and the entire office staff. I would confidently recommend OHNI to friends and family.

“In addition to his knowledge and expertise he is very comforting and calm”

I was referred to Dr. Zandifar after having the Mohs Procedure on my nose for a basal cell tumor. I left my dermatologist office with a large defect on my nose. I was a defect that made me almost faint when I saw it. I was very scared that I would have a large noticeable, horrible scar in the center of my face.

Dr. Zandifar has been fantastic. In addition to his knowledge and expertise he is very comforting and calm. Whenever I was scared during my surgery he was able to say and do the perfect things to calm me down. When I was concerned that the healing process might not be gong well he rechecked me on a Saturday morning.

I highly recommend Dr. Zandifar. Thanks to him my nose now looks fantastic.

The staff at Osborne Head and Neck has also been excellent!
Thank you Dr. Zandifar and staff.

“The result was amazing as has been all the follow up and post op care”

The experience with Dr. Zandifar and his team has been fantastic. I came in with this big hole in my face after basal cell tumor removed. Looked like a third nostril. Scary stuff. The doctor proceeded to put on some music while he closed the crater up. I have yet to understand how he got skin off of me to patch me up, but the result was amazing as has been all the follow up and post op care. So, if you have a hole in your face or anything else that requires a doctor, come see Dr. Z.

“I have been very happy with my experience”

I came to see Dr. Zandifar to have a basal cell cancer removed from my forehead. When my surgeon Dr. Kormeli referred me to Dr. Zandifar my understandings where that I would have a quarter size hole in my head, but once Dr. Zandifar removed the basal cell from my forehead it was much bigger than what I expected. Dr. Zandifar did such a great job; he has such a caring way about him and communicated well with me. I am now 3weeks post op I feel great and no longer feel self-conscious about myself. Thank you so much Dr. Zandifar I am very pleased with my results.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am with the outcome”

I would like to say thank you to everyone at OHNI, for the miracle Dr. Zandifar and his staff preformed on me in March of this year. I came to your institute after having cancerous cells removed from the left side of my nose. After these cells were successful removed by my dermatologist, I was left with a dime sized hole in my nose. Dr. Zandifar performed a complete examination, concluding that it could be successfully closed. He then took the time to explain every step of the procedure clearly and completely, never rushing or making me feel as though I was asking unnecessary questions. Something I’ve often found missing in other medical facilities. Not only did he close the hole in my nose, but did so leaving no evidence that I ever had a problem of any kind. I can’t tell you how happy I am with the outcome.

When I tell people that I had this procedure, they are astounded by the results, not being able to see any evidence of a scare or damage of any kind. In addition to my gratitude to Dr. Zandifar, for his unparalleled skills, I’d like to say thank you to everyone at OHNI. The professionalism of your organization was evident from the moment I walked through the front door. The kindness, caring, and genuine concern I was shown from start to finish, made an amazing difference, in what is normally an unsettling experience, a very comforting and, dare I say, pleasant one. Should I ever have future problems of any kind, your institute will be the only facility I will consider, and will happily recommend you to everyone I meet.

“I would highly recommend OHNI to other patients”

I was referred to Dr. Zandifar from my Dermatologist Dr. Kormeli. I was diagnosed with skin cancer and needed a good plastic surgeon that could remove the cancer from my forehead that was experienced with MOHS procedures. I was treated well by the entire staff; the atmosphere was excellent the staff treated me like a patient and not just another number to them. I would highly recommend OHNI to other patients. Thank you Dr. Zandifar.

“Not only is Dr. Z’s work impeccable, the team is enthusiasm and professionalism are second to none.”

Dr. Zandifar and the entire team at Osborne Head and Neck have been incredible. Not only is Dr. Z’s work impeccable, the team is enthusiasm and professionalism are second to none. Truly Tier 1!!! Thank you.

“Even though the surgery was extensive, the nose repair was absolutely perfect.”

What an amazing experience to be able to come here to Cedars-Sinai, Osborne Head & Neck Institute for my surgical care. Dr. Zandifar is an excellent surgeon! He took so much personal care towards me in my comfort level and understanding of the procedure.

Even though the surgery was extensive, the nose repair was absolutely perfect. All of my post operative care was directed to quick healing and the most natural looking results. Dr. Zandifar was so personable and made every follow up appointment warm and friendly. I feel blessed to live near-enough to such amazing medical care and to have had such professional physicians!

“Dr. Zandifar is not just talented and skilled, he’s a perfectionist!”

Simply the best by far! Dr. Zandifar is not just talented and skilled, he’s a perfectionist! The results I got were outstanding! I can’t recommend him highly enough-there is no one better!

“Very welcoming and made me feel very comfortable.”

Dr. Zandifar’s office was awesome. Very welcoming and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Zandifar and his entire office staff was very friendly and truly seemed to care a great deal on how I was doing and the outcome of my procedure. Thank you all!

“My thanks to Dr. Zandifar, who not only treated and repaired my nose, but helped guide me through the process.”

Too much sun in my early years, I guess… led to skin cancer on my nose. Next thing you know, I end up with a hole in my nose. That was the week before Christmas! Now it’s March 1st and I’m back to the way I was before the skin cancer. My thanks to Dr. Zandifar, who not only treated and repaired my nose, but helped guide me through the process. It kept me calm and that trust meant a lot.

Many thanks

“Dr. Hootan Zandifar was an amazing doctor. It was a great experience working with him.”

Dr. Hootan Zandifar was an amazing doctor. It was a great experience working with him. His bedside manor was awesome. Surgery was painless and easy for me. The way he treats his patients is outstanding. The office staff was always very kind and helpful throughout the whole process. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you to Dr. Zandifar and staff for all you have done.

“Not only is Dr. Zandifar an incredible skilled surgeon, he is an amazing human being.”

Not only is Dr. Zandifar an incredible skilled surgeon, he is an amazing human being. He is the most kind being. He is the most kind, caring, patient, understanding and helpful individual I have ever met. He did a Moh’s closure for me. I had the hugest hole between my eyes. Now it’s much better than I ever expected it to be. He is a patient’s doctor.

“No one will ever know I had a procedure to close a very large hole above my cheek.”

The total experience was wonderful. I am very pleased with the way my face has healed. No one will ever know I had a procedure to close a very large hole above my cheek. Dr. Zandifar is a wonderful surgeon and I would recommend him to any and everyone.

“He is an artist and my scar is healing very well and quickly.”

Dr. Zandifar made this experience smooth and painless from the start. He is an artist and my scar is healing very well and quickly. I am grateful to have found him to do my surgery. Thank you to him and the excellent staff.

“Dr. Z, his surgical assistant and staff have been great.”

I arrived with a 4 inch disc of my right forehead missing-the result of a Mohs excision of basal cell cancer. After 4 ½ hours with Dr. Z, I left with a closed wound, stitched in a “Yin Yang” pattern.

The scar / wound was slow to heal-and continues to fade slowly over time. Considering the shape I was in, the result is remarkable and getting better each day.

Dr. Z, his surgical assistant and staff have been great. And now I’m an advertisement for the clinic and Dr. Z’s work. Especially since I have a 5 inch “Z” on my head!

“I really look forward to seeing the results to Dr. Zandifar’s closure. I am confident that I will be happy with them.”

Came to office from dermatologist office after having had MOHS procedure on the head. Very much appreciated being seen on same afternoon of initial procedure. Staff in office has been excellent. From the doctor I encountered in the parking garage who made sure I got to the right office to front office staff, I really look forward to seeing the results to Dr. Zandifar’s closure. I am confident that I will be happy with them. Definitely recommend this office and MD!

“I was actually amazed at the results, given how deep the holes were.”

I was referred by my dermatologist in Manhattan Beach to repair two holes in my face/nose that were the result of skin cancer surgery, on consecutive Mondays. Fortunately, Dr. Zandifar was available and able to handle both procedures.

I was actually amazed at the results, given how deep the holes were. The atmosphere was great, staff was courteous, attentive and professional. They were flexible with the scheduling too as I had to reschedule two of the follow-ups. The procedures were almost 100% pain free as well, and I didn’t miss any time or activities.

I would (and already have) recommended Dr. Zandifar and OHNI to anyone I know.

“Dr. Zandifar did a fantastic job and would only recommend OHNI to my friends and family.”

I was diagnosed with basal cell cancer on my forehead and needed a surgeon that would do a great job. My mother was a patient of one of the other physicians and recommended Dr. Zandifar. The staff is totally professional, friendly, patient, and nice. Dr. Zandifar did a fantastic job and would only recommend OHNI to my friends and family.

“Dr. Zandifar did a fantastic job in every aspect.”

Dr. Zandifar did a fantastic job in every aspect. His demeanor- top notch, craftsmanship was top notch to go through the process that I had encountered. I thank you so much and appreciate all that you do.

“I appreciated this attention to detail and am happy with the results.”

I saw Dr. Zandifar the day after my Moh’s treatment for squamous cell carcinoma on my nose. I was left with a substantial “hole in my nose”. He spent quite a while with me and was meticulous about the procedure. At first he was going to stitch it together, but decided that was not the best course of action because I believe he felt it would not look the best. (It would change the look of my nose).

He instead chose the procedure to take skin from behind my ear which was in the long run, a better result. I appreciated this attention to detail and am happy with the results. I still have a slight ‘divit” but it’s not very noticeable. The only negative aspect was the $2.500 fee for “operating room” which I was not made aware of by my dermatologist and no time to prepare for.

“The best team I could ask for.”

I had a Moh’s procedure done a few months ago. Hearing I had skin cancer scared me. After the removal I was sent Dr. Zandifar. The staff was amazing. They calmed my nerves. The procedure was made clear. The nurse, the anesthesiologist, and Dr. Zandifar were the best team I could ask for.

My procedure was over 3 hours, but made it feel like minutes. The next day the office called to check on me, which eased my mind. I continued with follow up appointments. Dr. Zandifar again made me feel comfortable and confident. I truly feel he is sincere. I hope to never have skin cancer again, but if I do, I know there is this amazing team to make me better.

“Dr. Zandifar is caring, takes the time and effort to do it right and gets fantastic results.”

Dr. Zandifar and his staff are professional and a pleasure to work with. Dr. Zandifar worked on closing 2 different Moh’s procedures. One is on my face and was a pretty big area. You would never know there was tissue removed as there are no visible scars. It looks as if nothing was removed. The same applies for my second area on my upper arm.

Dr. Zandifar is caring, takes the time and effort to do it right and gets fantastic results. Hopefully, I will not need any more Moh’s procedures, but if I do, Dr. Zandifar will be doing the closing and make them disappear.

“The outcome was perfect”

Today was my second follow up appointment with Dr. Zandifar, the plastic surgeon who performed the work on my lower lip. The surgery itself was done by Dr. Ryan Osborne. I had a squamous cell carcinoma on the lower lip. Both physicians were just wonderful to me. The surgery was painless. The outcome was perfect and I appreciate the kindness and expertise of both of these fine doctors.
