    I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Kafrouni three times. Every time he was patient and understanding to my questions and needs. I feel this doctor has a gift to truly understand what the patient is going through and has gone through. He was able to evaluate my care and re-evaluate the care that was given to me earlier by other doctors. He is a kind and honest doctor.

    Wow! Dr. Kafrouni checked my hip with ultrasound and found two pockets of fluid built up around the main tendon. He drained these areas and I was instantly pain free!
