Dr. Anbari is a very kind, caring doctor. My last total knee was robotic and the recovery was quicker, incision smaller and healing time faster. Dr. Anbari explained everything in detail and answered all my questions. Such a gentle man and so humble.

Dr. Anbari is the kindest, gentlest, most sensitive doctor I have ever had. He has a sincere bedside manner! I get my knees injected every 3 months. I never feel a thing. He really knows what he is doing. I will need knee replacements soon and am not concerned about him doing it. I just have to get up my courage. Thank you Dr Anbari for all you do for me.
