Dear Dr. Nezhat,
I do not have words to thank you enough. You are truly a remarkable surgeon and a caring human being! I appreciate the excellent care and concern you have given me. A million thanks.
Dr. Nezhat and team,
I just couldn’t wait to write this letter to give a personal statement of my experience with you and your staff. I came to your office in April of 2016 for a consultation after being referred to you for infertility. I have come a long way in my 3-year journey struggling to become pregnant (after several failed IVF and IUI cycles). After seeing multiple specialists that gave me a less than 10% chance to conceive on our own, we were referred to you for one last hope to restore my reproductive system. I must say out of all of my doctors (and my last reproductive doctor that referred me to you), you were the most optimistic. I am happy to share with you these precious photos of our baby girl who was born on October 7, 2017.
There are no words that could I say to express my appreciation and thanks to you for your vision, optimism, gifted hands and medical intelligence, which helped us achieve our ultimate goal of becoming parents. We are more than grateful to you and all those who played a role and made this possible. I am a true believer in the impossible being possible. With our faith and your excellent medical skills, the impossible became possible. I hope you work to serve other women for many more years to come. I will continue to support your office and refer anyone that presents issues similar to those that I presented. You have helped make my dreams come true and help me live a better and healthier life (free from endometriosis and other issues). May you continue to be blessed and provide another family and/or woman the same desires of their heart.
Ten years ago, today, I had surgery with Dr. Ceana Nezhat. Ten years of being pain free, something I thought was impossible! That is a miracle, and Dr. Nezhat is a gift from God. This is my story.
I started having “stomach” issues in 4th grade. From then until I was 18, I had tests to see if I had ulcers anything that would give the doctors an idea as to why I had stomach pain. I was diagnosed as lactose intolerant, irritable bowel syndrome, etc… At 18, my PCP told me he thought I had endometriosis and sent me to my OBGyn. Nothing more was mentioned of endometriosis for the next 4 years. In 1999, at the age of 21, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome and put on birth control pills. In January of 2000, I had my first of 7 surgeries. This one was to lance the cysts and at that time the endo was discovered. I was told it was mild, yet it was on my intestines which is why I had digestive issues. After that surgery, I was told I would have no more problems. That was wrong in so many ways. Starting in 2000, I was put on several different bcp and hormone medications. The worst being from a doctor at a well-known clinic who put me on depo Provera shots and activella pills at the same time. I thought I was going crazy.
These are the surgeries I have had:
*2000 – laparoscopy – discovered endometriosis and removed my appendix
*2001 – June laparoscopy to excise endo, July- oophorectomy of my right ovary and fallopian tube
*2002 – laparoscopy
*2003 – laparoscopy
*2005 – hysterectomy at the age of 28
*2007 – surgery with Dr. Nezhat
Up until I had met with Dr. Nezhat, each doctor I saw told me the pain was in my head and that there was no way the endometriosis had come back – it was impossible. Each surgery revealed not only endo, but worsening endometriosis that was destroying my ovaries and overall heath. Instead of trying to fix it, I was put on anxiety medication, hormones, and told to do pelvic floor exercises.
When I spoke to Dr. Nezhat (before ever meeting with him), he diagnosed me as having an ovarian remnant. Something no one had mentioned previously. He did some tests and had a plan ready the first time I met with him. The surgery with him was 4 hours long and he told my mom that I had “trash” left behind from previous surgeries. Since then, he still gets very upset when he talks about my past, but is the most compassionate, caring doctor I have ever seen. He is very thorough as well. I see him about 2 times a year to get my hormone implant, and he takes his time to talk to me about any questions or concerns I may have. He and Angela know that I am a huge worrier, but they don’t hold that against me. They are both very patient and reassuring and are always only a phone call away.
Since first meeting with Dr. Nezhat, I am a different person. I am happily married and more confident in myself and full of joy. Ten years ago, my life without pain began. I am continually humbled, amazed, and beyond thankful that God led me to Dr. Nezhat. Though, he won’t admit it, in my opinion he is the greatest doctor in the world. I have been to many who had god-complexes and didn’t care about their patients. Dr. Nezhat is the exact opposite. He is a very compassionate and knowledgeable doctor who is determined to fight endometriosis until it no longer exists. The world needs more doctors like him.
This testimonial and more can be found on Facebook.
Dr. Nezhat quite literally saved my life. He is one of the best doctors on the planet. People like me come from all over the United States for the honor of being one of his patients. I have referred over a dozen people to Ceana Nezhat – and every one of them has thanked me over and over again for the referral. If you’re looking for advanced care with a doctor and staff who listens and pays attention to detail, Dr. Nezhat is the best there is.
Dear Dr. Nezhat, I appreciate the great care you and your staff have given me. I feel I have received the best individually tailored care possible. The kindness, concern, and care you and your staff showed put my mind at ease. I felt I was treated as a person.
Thank you for personally calling me with the results of the biopsies. Your knowledge, skills, and individualized patient care makes you truly a great doctor, an expert in every aspect of patient care! Thank you again for all of the great care. I truly appreciate your skill and knowledge. I am very thankful you accepted me as your patient!
Dear Dr. Nezhat, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for taking care of Lauren. One of the things that I so admire about you is your dedication to every detail and your concern to make sure every patient gets the best care possible. Besides the fact that no one equals (please don’t tell the other doctors I said this, although I think they would agree) your skill, experience, and ability. It was an honor to work with you years ago and watch your perfection and the way you treat every patient, just the way anyone would want for a family member or if they were having surgery.
Also, everyone in your office was so kind and caring. Angela has a heart of gold. Mary Ann’s follow up and concern to get us in was above and beyond. The girls at the desk were so positive and helpful.
Lauren says she is doing her best and is going to do everything you said to try to get better and hopefully that gets rid of her pain.
I wish you and your staff and family the best in 2017 and thank you again for being the Dr you are and the extraordinary excellence you provide to all your patients and to her.
