I am still impressed at how kind and gentle Dr. Vahedifar is. I saw him for some pain in my elbow which radiated down my arm and swelled my arm and hand. He x-rayed me and said it was tennis elbow. He gave me a shot of cortisone. Before he did, he spent extra time numbing the shot area. He gave me the shot and I didn't even feel it.
