Dr. Qureshi is great! Professional, amazing surgeon, experienced; knowledgeable and very personable. This helps so much when navigating complex issues that you impair daily functions. Thanks to Dr. Qureshi, I am slowly regaining my mobility which was limited for over 5 months.

Everyone was so nice to deal with. Dr Qureshi answered all of my questions and explained many things to me that I didn't know about after my surgery. Was very pleased with my experience with him. Would definately recommend him. Excellent and a very caring doctor.


Dr. Qureshi see patients at the Southington location on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and in Plainville on Thursday's.
