Dr. Messiha has helped my parents out with pain in the knees for my dad as well as pain in the back for my mother. My parents have tried chiropractors, physical therapy, massages, everything and nothing worked. After going to Dr. Messiha, their quality of life has increased so much and their pain has greatly decreased. Dr. Messiha also took the time to listen and explain everything to us. Amazing and genuine Dr. thank you, Dr. Messiha! We need more doctors like you in this world!

I've seen him one time. Was told that he would be spending a hour with me to go over my history and exam. My appt was at 2:00. I was warned not to be late because the doctor would not see me if I was. Got there at 1:45. Waited one hour in reception room then a half hr. in exam room. He spent a total of thirteen minutes with me. Ask very little about health. Left room. Lady came back with my prescriptions. I noticed they were not what we talked about. She said this was it. No dicussion. Bad doc.

Dr. Messiha was very thorough in explaining his recommendations and did a great job with the procedure he recommended. The procedure ended up working and relieved my pain for the first time in a really long time.
