Hello Dr Teig, This is a follow up on my daughter's surgery. We spoke about Dr Bagheri who has great credentials. You had said that you felt comfortable to have him do the surgery. As you know it is a major decision to have another procedure with the question in our mind, Will the result be at least good if not better than preop? In the past few days we've been in touch with Dr Zuniga who is impressive as well. My daughter was very good about asking all of the important questions like how many of these surgeries have you done. Result being Bagheri has done  many more. Does that sound correct? and would you still pick Dr Bagheri? Thx!!!
