Patient Reviews

“Dr. Shirzad spent quality time with me, explaining what was wrong with my foot and what could be done to make it better. He is very kind....VERY! My appointments are always on time and his staff is super, really super. I can't think of any way to improve on my experience with NWOS - you always rock it!!” — Nancy W.

“Dr. Shirzad and staff have been great. I have absolutely no complaints.If I experience future foot problems Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists is the only medical facility I want to repair it.” — Gordon F.

“Dr. Shirzad was very kind and knows he is doing. He looked at my MRI in detail and then even took the time to show me and explained what is wrong. If I ever needed any surgery I will be back to this office and recommend others.” — Jessica D.

“I had surgery on the top of both of my feet on 4/22/13. My condition was not something that is encountered on a routine basis. I have dealt with this discomfort my whole life (since late childhood). I was at a point where I could barely wear shoes when I went to see Dr. Shirzad. He showed empathy and caring. I knew before hand surgery would not be a quick fix and would take time and patience for recovery. I am happy to report that four months post surgery I am making progress and things are looking up. Thank you Dr. Shirzad!” — Pamela M.
