Why Patients have better outcomes with Dr. Nezhat
IT IS AMAZING HOW MUCH THE SURGERY HELPED ME; YOU HELPED ME!!
Review from Selma Yilmaz, Ph.D., San Jose, CA
Dear Dr. Nezhat,
It has been exactly 1 year since my surgery and I could not keep in touch with you regularly since we moved our home to Fairfax, VA. I am still in the area on/off due to my job but things have been very hectic with the move and my son's adaptation of the high school.
I would like to let you know that I have been doing wonderful. It is amazing how much the surgery helped me; you helped me. Not a day goes by without me feeling thankful to you for giving me a second chance in life to be normal again, not to be dependent others and/or my wheelchair, to be pain free, to have the ability to have a kid. This was truly minimally invasive surgery even though my endometriosis was as invasive as it could get.
I have been dealing with endometriosis for past 20 years of my life and have seen a lot of specialists all over the world and had 2 surgeries before I started seeing you. Read more

AWESOME, FANTASTIC, PHENOMENAL, KIND, WONDERFUL!!
Review from Claudette B., Keyes, CA
AWESOME, FANTASTIC, PHENOMENAL, KIND, WONDERFUL!! I could go on and on with amazing praises for Dr. Nezhat, his fellow doctors and the staff. They all hold a special place in my heart. Dr. Nezhat's skills are fantastic, his care and compassion are wonderful! From day one walking into his office has been nothing but great. Dr. Nezhat and his staff always make you feel like you are the only patient he has at the moment, eventhough his waiting room is full. Dr. Nezhat and his staff always immediately answer any questions or concerns you have, and always putting my mind at ease. If it wasn't for Dr. Nezhat and his staff I don't know where I would be, after several years of going to doctors who either ignored me, told me I was making it up in my head, or just didn't know what it was.....Dr. Nezhat took to the time to listen....can't even begin to describe what a relief it was to find a Doctor who cared, took the time, and helped me out tremendously! Everyone in Dr. Nezhat's office has always been very kind and friendly to my family members as well. During office visits, after surgery, answering questions any time of day. I am extremely grateful for everything Dr. Nezhat, his fellow doctors have done for me and my family. Dr. Nezhat and his fellow doctors are incredible surgeons, with remarkable care and compassion. I highly recommend Dr. Nezhat to anyone needing a great doctor and an excellent surgeon!
I had one natural miscarriage and afterwards had undergone IVF
Review from Lara S., Los Altos, CA
We were blessed to find Camran Nezhat up at Stanford. I can honestly tell you he is the GREATEST DOCTOR ON EARTH. I had one natural miscarriage and afterwards had undergone IVF in attempts to conceive again, which only resulted in another miscarriage. Nezhat did laproscopic surgery to treat my endometriosis (the IVF clinic we had previously consulted said this treatment wasn't worthwhile) and Nezhat found I had a thick septum in my uterus... When you have a septum, chances of miscarriage can be up to 97%. He removed the septum and we got pregnant on our own several months post-surgery. Unbelievable. I think this is a typical story for him in that he finds other doctors mistakes and gets to the heart of the issue. He proudly posts pictures of our baby on his wall and continues to provide top-notch care for me 2+ years post-surgery. He invented video laproscopic surgery, he is on wikipedia, and there are many articles on him and the outstanding work he does. We are lucky to have him in the Bay Area.
We were trying for a kid since 4 years but never were successful.
Review from Mahesh C., East Brunswick, NJ
The review was long long due. We were trying for a kid since 4 years but never were successful. Later on , we went to a RE who performed a laproscopy and diagnosed her with endometriosis. After laproscopy, the RE did a failed IVF cycle. My wife was completed devastated.We saw no hope. While searching on the internet , we found Dr. Nezhat which has very good reviews and couple of bad reviews. We were initially very circumspect but we gave it a try. After the first appointment with Dr. Nezhat, we were very comfortable and he gave us a ray of hope. My wife decided to go for another laproscopy. Not only Dr. Nezhat got rid of the endometriosis and firbroids , she got pregnant twice naturally 4 months and 1.5 years after the surgery. We were simply speechless. Words are short to express our gratitude to him.
I cannot thank Dr. Nezhat enough for what he actually was able to resolve in my case after 5 years of trying to get pregnant.
Review from Annett H., Sunnyvale, CA
I cannot thank Dr. Nezhat enough for what he actually was able to resolve in my case after 5 years of trying to get pregnant. I would never had any idea that I actually had endometriosis !!!
...so ladies please be aware of this condition it is not that obvious most of the time, before you try for IUI or IVF....and not every ObGyn can actually diagnose this condition!!!!!!!!!! After my surgery with Dr.Nezhat, which was quick and easy to recover from I got pregnant 4 month later. My best friend who had the same surgery with him got pregnant after only 2 month, she actually referred me to him. I will always remember the day when my friend and I were sitting in his office talking to him about the suffering of infertility (my friend already pregnant). He said very calm and with the kindest smile you can imagine:
" Do not worry I will help you!" I just recently gave birth to my daughter and I am extremely happy.
Dr.Nezat thank you so much that you transformed our life's and helped to have our beautiful daughter ....we will be always love you
My husband and I will keep you very close in our heart's.
Before I saw Nezhat for my severe endometriosis and PCOS I was under the impression that I would have to have a hysterectomy and could never have children.
Review from Seana L., 7/6/2009
I have been seeing Dr. Nezhat since I was 18 years old (Im 25 now) and I cannot praise him and his wonderful staff enough. Before I saw Nezhat for my severe endometriosis and PCOS I was under the impression that I would have to have a hysterectomy and could never have children. Nezhat tirelessly worked to get me on the right medication, taught me about proper diet and after 2 surgeries I am healthy and optimistic on having children. His staff has been incredibly compassionate and kind, even when I was without insurance they still worked with me to make sure I received care...you can tell Nezhat does this for the love not for the money. Hell the head nurse remembers everything about me including what college classes Ive taken, where Ive gone on vacation and my brothers name (whom shes never even met)!
Im not sure why this other reviewer had a bad experience since I have had nothing but stellar patient care from this office and I have recommended them to several other women who have all raved about this office. Yes Dr Nezhat is not the most talkative, but he has always listened to my concerns or worries and his bedside manner after both my surgeries was exceptional. I would say do some research on Dr Nezhat for yourself (outside of yelp) and you will see that he has received glowing praise from thousands (yes thousands) of women who thought they had no hope. This man is a godsend and I owe him my health and happiness.
EDIT- I guess the woman who left the scathing review deleted it...well now nothing but stellar reviews like they deserve!
He found my problems that others had missed, cured me, and continues to provide caring follow-up 3+ years post-surgery.
Review from Lara S., Los Altos, CA
Dr. Nezhat and his staff have treated us like family. After other doctors put me through a nightmare due to their incompetence, Dr. Nezhat was a Godsend. He found my problems that others had missed, cured me, and continues to provide caring follow-up 3+ years post-surgery. I love this man and can honestly say he is the Greatest Doctor on Earth.
8 years, 3 different diseases that were previously undiagnosed, miscarriage, IVF the whole shebang..
Review from Dog L., Menlo Park, CA
I have been through the fertility wars...we are talking 8 years, 3 different diseases that were previously undiagnosed, miscarriage, IVF the whole shebang. Dr. Nezhat was a bright spot during my misadventures.
First, Stanford REI suspected (finally) endometriosis...I had already been trying for a few years, and despite ALL the signs, both they and PAMF had not been able to diagnose my problem. They didn't suggest surgery (the treatment for endo is IVF I was told)...it wasn't until one of their fellows mentioned off hand Dr. Nezhat that I investigated. Astonishingly, they have now changed I've heard and recommend endo patients get surgery before IVF.
I went to see Nezhat. He did an exam and could tell within about 2 seconds that I had it (I literally jumped off the table in pain). This after already seeing three other doctors...
So I scheduled surgery. I was a little apprehensive because there was some (very old) negative press about him. So I asked my good friend who's a surgeon at STanford about him. She asked around, and her other surgeon friends who did lap surgery (like Nezhat) told her that the general lap surgeons (not just the gyn lap surgeons) called him to bail them out in the OR. He is that good. Literally world renowned. She said if she were I, she would go to him.
My case was one of the worst "a stage four"...I had extensive damage. I ended up with no scar tissue and was up and walking in a few days. He is an amazing amazing surgeon.
I suspected 4 other women I knew of having endo....scary that I am doing the diagnosing, including my sister and my aforementioned surgeon friend. I insisted they see Nezhat. They all had endo and had surgery. 3 of them got pregnant with no other intervention after he did the surgery. One of them had been trying for 4 years...two months post surgery BAM.
He is not only an excellent surgeon, but he is caring and compassionate. A real gentle soul. But with the abilities of Hercules. Not kidding, if you think you might have endo you MUST SEE HIM!. His nurses are also very caring. He works with a lot of fellows too, they are part of his staff. So you need to put up with that, which has it's plusses and minuses. But trust me, I know more about this than almost anyone. He's worth it.
