All of us have probably been to a lot of doctors over the years, but in my opinion Dr. Fayyazi is on top of the list. He leaves no stone unturned. He is personable and up front on what needs to be done. He has a sense of urgency that make the patient feel that they are in good hands and are going to get the treatment they need ASAP. He explains what needs to be done. He is very patient and answers all your questions, no matter how long it takes. I would highly recommend Dr Fayyazi to anyone

Dr. Fayyazi is an excellent doctor. Along with being a very confident and extremely capable doctor, he is very personable and kind person. He also has a fantastic staff. I would definitely recommend him to any of my family and friends, should they have the need for specialty.
Whitehall, PA |
Never!! No way! He gets very aggressive personality, plays some dumb trick for what reason, i dont know. Aks pain 1-10, if u answer 10, he calls u a liar. Guess he should pick the # because if u say 9, I'm positive he" ll say same thing. Told me groin pain isn't a back pain related symptom, talked to another back dr & he said " oh yes it can be" who do u believe? NOT this guy. He gets nasty, doesn't listen when u talk, he dismisses you. Definitely never consider this dr

For 3 years I walked around with severe neck pain. Seriously, I had to flex my shoulders and neck to get relief. 2 years ago, Dr. Fayyazi operated on me, I received a fusion in my neck. I have absolutely "Zero" pain in my neck. I am very grateful for this talented surgeon. Thank you Dr. Fayyazi
Norristown, PA |
Kind, honest, and professional doctor who is timely, listens, and doesn't rush any aspect of your medical care. He performed my surgery for 2 herniated discs and I couldn't be happier with the treatment and results.

I am a 5+year patient of Dr.Fayyazi. I have had two surgeries performed both with outstanding outcomes! Would highly recommend anyone who has back issues to see him!

I first met with Dr. Fayyazi last August 4th, 2016. I had sever lower back pain and sciatic nerve pain shooting down my left leg. Dr. Fayyazi was very up front with me and after looking at my x-rays he assured me that he would make me better. After all the hoopla with the insurance company going through their process with PT I finally got my surgery in October. I had total confidence in Dr. Fayyazi. He explained everything on what to expect post op (didn't leave me any questions to ask).

Trusted practitioner and surgeon. Easy to speak with
in Easton, PA |
Went there for 2nd opinion on workers comp case & this doctor could not have been more rude to me. Wow, he didn't believe any of my documented symptons & was practically calling me a liar. I advise anybody here go to coordinated health they will treat you like a person. This place outright sucks
Schnecksville, PA |
I had neck fusion performed by Dr Fayyazi it never felt right. I went back to Dr Fayyazi numerous times they would do an xray and he said it was fine. I had gotten a second opinion they did an mri and a catscan turns out my one disc never fused correctly. I am not happy at all with Dr Fayyazi.
