in Salem, IL |
When I first went to Dr. Mohamed the pain in my neck, shoulders and arms was unbearable. The symptoms caused by my neck were world spinning, dizziness, pain throughout my extremities and numbness in arms to finger tips. My first visit after telling Dr. Mohamed what I was experiencing he said this was caused by herniated disk in c3-4. At this point we made a plan and executed it. Six weeks after surgery I am pain free though I do still have numbness in hands but a far cry better than before.
Thanks John for your comment , wish full and speedy recovery .

** Dr Mohamed, did the cervical cortisone injection procedure yesterday at the outpatient Surgical Center in Centralia. Quality of care great, overall experience "Excellent"! The procedure itself is painful, only for a few moments, but you have to endure a little pain to get the benefits of the procedure. 1st day post procedure was quite beneficial. This was my first cervical procedure and I have had many cortisone injections to my lumbar spine. Highly recommend. **
Thanks Richard for your comment , always pleasure taking care of you .

Two spinal surgeries (ACDF and lumbar MIS)! Very experienced Dr who listens and takes the time to get to bottom of problem/s. He does not hesitate to order appropriate tests to arrive at correct diagnosis. My experience with numerous Dr's tells me he is among the best!

I was so pleasantly surprised at the amazing fast scheduling I was able to set up. The doctor was very informed and explained my back issue even using an interactive display so I could understand and see what he talked about . Then he went through a complete discussion of all my options for treatment and their pros and cons . I thought he did a fantastic job of taking the time to explain everything. The office crew were pleasant, professional and helpful as well. The experience was first rate .
Thanks very much for your comment. It was great seeing you .

Two surgeries by Dr. Salem and would not let any other Dr. touch my back! Cervical fusion and laminectomy in October and after recovery went through 6 weeks of pre-Lumbar fusion Physical therapy. February Lumbar Fusion turning out well. Have just started Physical Therapy 6 week rehab and I am working hard to regain strength and flexability. During this six month period, Dr. Salem has continued to prove himself as a Skilled Surgeon and a caring individual. Have referred many of my friends.

Dr. Salem is very professional, conscientious, and knowledgeable in his caring for his patients. I was extremely nervous during my first visit because of the extreme pain I was having in my right back and leg area. Dr. Salem was very patient in showing me and explaining to me exactly what was going on with my L4 and L5 and my sciatic nerve. During the recommended steroid injections he was extremely caring and kind and again very patient because of my anxiety. I would refer him to anyone.
Thanks Mrs Garrett for your comment and trust.
