Dr. Messiha is great but the office staff is incompetent. Dr. Messiha ordered procedures twice and both times the staff didn't even submit to insurance until AFTER I followed up. The first time I followed up after two weeks and the second time after 3 weeks. If the doctor orders a procedure you need to follow up the next day because the longer you wait to follow up the longer you will wait for your procedure is Staff is Incompetent!

Dr Messiah takes the time to listen and learn. He performed a flawless epidural cortisone injection into my spine without any pain or complications. His calm, warm, confident demeanor has made me a patient for life. So thankful he was able to get me in on short notice in covid times and before the long holiday break!

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.
