I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your medical assistance in the speedy recovery of my right foot. The best foot care in Los Angeles!

I highly recommend Dr. Khosroabady. About 8 years ago I injured my ankle. Even though I went to a number of different doctors and did physical therapy, it never healed completely.

As a patient of Dr Khosroabadi’s I'd like to take just a moment and comment on both he and his staff with regards to the care and kindness they provide for the many communities of southern California.
