Don't waste your time here. This is where negligence meets incompetence in an all out battle for which will be the dominate trait for this practice. This man is only out to sell pain pumps. You'd think he gets a commission on the like a used car salesman. After screwing up my wife's oral meds we wouldn't dare widen the margin of error by getting a pain pump installed even if she were eligible for that procedure. I would be driving my wife to a morgue if we did.

I saw this doctor for a spinal injection. He has the WORST bed side manner EVER! He was condescending towards me and treated me as though I was not a person in pain. I too have an education and I may not have gone to school as long as he, but I did not deserve to be talked down to as though I didn't understand his medical "jargon". NOBODY, educated or not, deserves to be treated that way. I would not even trust him to see any of my animals.

The past 6 months he has put us thru financial and physical hell. No break thru meds. Labeled my wife an addict. Emergency staff tells you dig into your own tool box, we aren't doing anything for you. He's hell bent on pain pumps since it takes significantly less medicine to achieve pain relief. They can't even prescribe pills properly and his idea is to make a wider margin for errors. Asked them to fix pain meds so wife can sleep then was told change my lifestyle & sleep on the couch.

After my first visit I find that Dr El-Muhandes is friendly, knowledgable and makes you part of your own treatment, encouraging input while presenting options. You do have to agree not to get pain meds elsewhere and submit to drug screens as with any doctor prescribing opiates but he is sensitive about your pain and willing to prescribe the necessary meds. He preforms many procedures right in his office. My impression is that he is very good at what he does while having a great bedside manner.

This practice is un-professional and adversarial. They require pain Contracts?, expensive drug screenings. They use any excuse to force you into a compliance program that requires multiple monthly visits and even more expensive drug screenings. This practice only cares about the money from you and your insurance company. I have filed an insurance fraud complaint against them because they forced me into this Compliance program and are now refusing to give me the medication that I need!
