I had a appointment with this doctor at 1:00 pm. I entered the office at 12:30pm. They put me in a room at 1:00pm and at 1:50pm the doctor still had not entered the room. When I went to the receptionist at 1:35pm she stated he was on the way in. I explained to her at 1:50pm that I need to get back to work. She stated I could reschedule and guess what they gave me a schedule for August. I explained to her that when a patient is 15 minutes late they charge the patient and make them reschedule. I took the August appointment and I will be looking for another Neurosurgery doctor. Hopefully with my condition I can find one before than. 7 on your side need to investigate this type of practice.

I definitely recommend Dr. Anaizi. Dr. Anaizi is a wonderful person and a very knowledgeable doctor. From my experience, he is kind and cares about his patients' well being. My initial office visits were televisits and I never met Dr. Anaizi in person until the day of my surgery 8/21/20. While I was reluctant to have spine surgery, he assured me that having the minimal invasive procedure, TLIF spine surgery would relieve me of my right hip, thigh and lower leg pain. I was in so much pain and could not put any pressure on my right leg -- I could barely walk. Dr. Anaizi explained the surgical procedure to me and I trusted him and took him for his word. I felt better the next day after my surgery and was up walking; slowly, but walking with no pain. Eight weeks have passed now and I continue to get stronger and feel better than I have felt in months. Thank you Dr. Anaizi and the Universe for your wealth of knowledge and your gifted hands.

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.
