Dr. Qureshi performed 2 level fusion back surgery on me in early January 2016. He is a very patient man, very approachable, listens very well, answered my questions and concerns regarding the procedure he was about to perform. I tend to be a bit impatient with recovery and want to push the envelop in an effort to speed getting back to my active lifestyle. He helped me realize a full recovery (six months after surgery) by discouraging my overly aggressive approach.

Dr. Abid Qureshi , MD served me for the last 3 years and I am very grateful for the excellent care I provide me thank Dr
in Martinez, CA |
Having suffered with a herniated disc and savior sciatica for several years, it became evident that I need to move beyond the routine treatment of medication, physical therapy, exercises, weight loss and back injections. I was referred to Abid Quishi, MD in early 2015. After reviewing x-rays and an MRI, Dr Quishi suggested lumbar fusion of L4-5. The LAST back/leg pain I had experienced was when I moved from the transfer bed onto the operating table. I followed his post-operative instruction

Dr. Qureshi is not just a spine surgeon but a perfect friend whose words and actions gives you hope in your hopeless situation. He was a friend to me in my situation and perform a perfect surgery in my back and today I am fine again. My name is Samuel Ankrah am 59years old.
