I would highly recommend Dr Anazi to anyone that is in need of a neurosurgeon. I have major anxiety issues and Dr Anazi did everything in his power to accommodate me. I am currently recovering from major spinal surgery and everyone is amazed at how well I am doing considering I am 70. Not only is he an amazing surgeon but he is both kind and compassionate. He truly cares about his patients.

Dr Anaizi is awesome. He gave me my life back. Patience is everything in healing. Not everyone heals at the same pace. Practicing healthy food choices and maintaining a weight that doesn't add to your physical problems, is a plus. It's been three years. A shout out to a blessed doctor, with gifted hands. ~Christine

My mother just meant Dr.Anaizi 1 week ago at Georgetown hospital. He was so kind to explain my mom issues and address them right away. He performed two surgerys within a week on my mom and she is doing very well. I'm so impressed with his ability to recognize the problem and try to solve it quickly as possible. He was truly a blessing to our family. I will forever be thankful for him. I will strongly recommend him to anyone in need of neurological needs. Tate family.

He is gentle, gifted, the best doctor ever and thorough professional, my son had a brain tumor removal surgery In 2009 and it took 27 hrs with at GW with a different neurosurgeon but this time 2016 with Dr Anaizi it took 16 hrs. My son was off life support in 7hrs and talking. I praise God for him. I will recommend him very highly.
