Dr. Alavi is so kind and really cares about the patient. I went in for my knee. He explained the prognosis, plan, and follow-up. Could not be happier.

This location, staff, and doctor were nothing short of exceptional. Got there for my appointment and was called in within 5 minutes. The doctor came in immediately and did the initial exam. He then sent me to get an X-ray within the same building. The whole process lasted 10 minutes if that. Went back to the doctor to review the x-ray. Was out shortly thereafter. Start to finish was about 30 minutes tops. Best service I’ve ever received in the medical industry. Well done.

Dr. Alavi treated me with high expertise and knowledge. He made my visit feel comfortable as he treated me with a cortisone injection using an ultrasound. This was very helpful, and I’m grateful!


FOI at Dale Mabry and Spruce. I went to this center this morning for an appointment and experienced the best services. As soon as I arrived, I was checked in, only two minutes after that, they sent me for an x-ray, and only two minutes later, the doctor came to see me and continued with the treatment. Very satisfied with all.

I was very impressed with the treatment I received from Dr. Alavi and I would definitely recommend him to friends and family. I saw him for shoulder and elbow injuries and he was very knowledgeable in both areas. He recommended exercises for me to do at home and answered all my questions with patience and understanding. He has great expertise in sports related injuries.
