    Many thanks for the successful surgery. I can do things now that I haven't been able to do for a very long time.

    I first saw Dr Lofti in 2015 and I was in extreme pain related to a neck injury. Dr Lofti recommended alternative workout plans and treatment to help with my pain though I wanted surgery. He recommended against surgery and I'm happy I listened. A year later my pain levels have decreased and I am stronger. I'm happy he listened and provided a thorough assessment of my conditions. He is not a surgeon to "cut" just for the sake of doing so. Dr Lofti is an utmost professional.

    When I first came here the pain in my back was almost unbearable, the suggested procedure gave me almost instant gratification, I'm extremely happy with my experience and my doctor, Dr. Lofti was very patient with me and I appreciated that.

    Prior to my first visit the pain in my back and legs made it all but impossible to walk. Had surgery shortly thereafter and now am walking pain free.

    I had excellent care, all of my questions were answered, and the entire staff at the practice was attentive, kind and caring. I feel like a new woman! Thank you all so very much.

    Dr. Lotfi's quiet confidence and caring manner made the experience of spinal surgery far less daunting than anticipated. To say I am pleased with the outcome is an understatement! Thank you Dr. Lotfi!

  • Candace

    Dr. Lotfi was amazing, professional and extremely knowledgeable who showed compassion. He spent quality time in getting to know and understand my issue and concerns. His staff was great as well. I would recommend Dr. Lotfi to anyone.

  • Jim

  • Shannon
    Dec 12, 2016

    I was extremely reluctant about having surgery on my back. Being a single mom of 2 very active boys, I struggled through PT for almost 2 month. Dr. Lotfi talked with me about surgery for the second time and he new my concerns. I woke up from the surgery pain free, minimal pain from the actual surgery. I was back to work in a week.

  • Robin
    Dec 7, 2016

    I was in a lot of pain with my back. After my surgery I feel wonderful. I cannot thank Dr Lotfi enough.

  • Todd
    Dec 5, 2016

    My experience with Dr. Lotfi was extremely positive. He was very thorough in helping me understand my condition and the best treatment option. My surgery went very well and I am extremely happy with the results. Dr. Lotfi did a great job and made me feel very comfortable in the process. Thank you!

  • Courtney
    Nov 30, 2016

    Dr. Lofti is AMAZING! I had back problems for 7 years and the last episode I had was the worst. I expressed my concerns with Dr. Lofti and we came up with a treatment plan so I didn't have to have surgery. The treatment was a success and I hope not to be back for a very long time (no offense Dr. Lofti!). I can't say thank you enough!

  • John
    Nov 28, 2016

    I have had numerous surgeries in the past. While this surgery appeared to be the highest risk surgery I have had - Dr. Lotfi and the staff at NOVA Orthopedic & Spine Care instilled the confidence I needed to make my decision to have the surgery performed by no one else. The surgery was an instant success and less than 3 weeks after surgery I feel so much better. Outstanding bedside manners by all involved in explaining the process and answering all of my questions made a tremendous difference. I would not recommend going anywhere else. - John Caycedo

  • Joseph
    Nov 14, 2016

    Dr. Lotfi was very friendly and knowledgable. He has worked with me since January of 2016. He assessed the situation, and provided me with excellent care. The situation called for Epidural Injections. These were frightening but provided temporary relief. I ultimately had surgery to correct the problem in November of 2016. I was initially worried to have surgery but Lotfi reassured that everything would be better after. The morning of surgery he was there ready to get started, and answer any questions I had. I was up and walking that day of surgery and have been making progress since. The sciatica pain is gone and I would highly recommend Dr. P. Lotfi.

  • Ralph
    Nov 3, 2016

    Dr. Lotfi has treated me for two different spinal issues. I am not exaggerating to say that I can walk today because of his skill. He has my trust and I give him the highest possible recommendation.

  • Anthony
    Oct 24, 2016

    I began my search for a physician to help me with back pain which was getting progressively worse. I tried chiropractors for about two years. I finally decided to see a spinal surgeon. I went on line and researched a number of specialist. Dr Lofti was my choice because of a number revies I had read about his work. I only wish I had chosen him sooner. Great outcome.

  • Robert
    Oct 20, 2016

    ACDF procedure. Complete resolution of all symptoms and issues. Surgery in in highest standards.

  • Brian
    Oct 20, 2016

    I have nothing but praise for Dr. Lofti and the NOVA staff. He performed a Total Disc Replacement procedure on me and it was a smooth process. Within 2 weeks I was back to my normal routine, yes, with some restrictions but pain free. If you are having severe neck pain and arm numbness go see Dr. Lofti he is astute in the most advanced procedures in treating neck and back pain.

  • Rebecca
    Oct 20, 2016

    I love the service and the treatment I get from the front desk to the time I see the doctor and after. Everyone is so nice and willing to answer my questions.

  • Don
    Oct 19, 2016

    My experience with Dr. Lotfi markedly improved my quality of life. I went from debilitating daily back pain and nerve numbness in my left leg to pain-free return to normalcy. An amazing and well appreciated experience.

  • Patricia
    Oct 13, 2016

    Dr. Lotfi and his staff have always been very helpful and kind. I had back surgery and had heard horror stories about what it would be like. However, I feel I had a great doctor and staff to help me along and I feel so much better as days go by. Thanks Dr. Lotfi and staff for everything.

  • Derald
    Oct 3, 2016

    Dr. Lofti outstanding, calm, confident. I had no qualms whatsoever in him providing me care!

  • Claude
    Sep 14, 2016

    Dr. Lotfi is wonderful. I had a terrible summer, I was in pain for two months ( insurance refused a request for MRI). I called Dr. Lotfi office after my MRI was done, I got an appointment in the following 4 days and we scheduled a surgery the following week. Went back to work a week after my surgery. I'm so thankful to be walking again and pain free. Thank you Dr. Lofti

  • Nohemi
    Sep 12, 2016

    This is a no-nonsense practice. Dr. Lotfi made a couple of suggestions for my treatment, but when those didn't work he went straight to suggesting surgery. It was the best decision. I would do it again in a heart beat. There is no reason to suffer with pain if there is a solution for it. Thanks to the entire team for looking after me and what would be the best care in my situation.

  • Patricia
    Sep 8, 2016

    I am able to walk/move practically pain free! If you want these kind of end results, you know where to come

  • Dawn
    Sep 8, 2016

    I wouldn't trust my spine to just anyone. Dr Lotfi exceeded my expectations. I had surgery May 24 2016. I'm doing great and can walk with no problem, which I could not do before. I have had rods and bone fusion; if you need this surgery I highly recommend Dr Lotfi and one else.

  • Amelia
    Aug 24, 2016

    I am very happy that I decided to have back surgery three years ago. I am even more happy that Dr. Al-Khateeb sent me to Dr. Lotfi for the surgery. This has been a good experience from the staff through the whole process. Thank you very much to all. Amelia Nunez

    Overall experience was excellent. I had very successful neck surgery by Dr Lotfi more than 10 years ago, so When I had a lower back problem, he was the only ortho surgeon I wanted to see. I'm very happy that I did. Another very successful surgery, and I feel so much better than before! Thank You to Dr Lotfi and staff and the Sentara surgical team. I could not have asked for better care.

  • Monique
    Jan 27, 2016

    I'm absolutely ecstatic about Dr. Lotfi and NOVA Orthopedic and Spine Care! When I came here for treatment for lower back pain I was in excruciating pain and it was difficult to stand up straight or walk. After an extensive examination and review of my medical history and current condition Dr. Lotfi was very strategic with developing his diagnosis and determining his course of treatment for me. He used every option available to treat me while avoiding surgery. Once it was determined surgical treatment was my best option he proceeded with careful thought and successfully operated. Now I'm about 90 days post op and I'm 150% better! I can't thank Dr. Lotfi enough for caring for and treating me. He made me feel trusting and peaceful throughout this entire process. I will be eternally grateful. I thank God for leading me to this practice and for blessing Dr. Lotfi with the talent and compassion he has for helping heal me!

  • Caroline
    Oct 7, 2015

    I consider myself a new patient to Dr. Lofti because I had not seen him before prior to him being recommended by Dr. Layfield for my lower back pain. Dr. Oskuyian recommended Dr. Layfield for my neck and shoulder pain. So far I have been very impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of Drs. Layfield and Lofti and especially the Front Desk staff. They appear to know their jobs and they go about doing it in a very professional, but nice way. The procedure that Dr. Lofti performed on me was much more terrifying in my mind than it actually was when he performed it. He and his assistant were very comforting and calming during the procedure. I will happily continue to use both Dr. Lofti and Dr. Layfield for my orthopedic needs and recommend them to my family and friends.
