What People Say About Dr. Annu Navani, MD

You should AVOID using this center. I was treating with Dr. Navani for a work-related injury to my knee. She sent me to their "work hardening program" which I attended for many weeks. Dr. Haun (the chiropractor who runs the program) kept pushing me to continue, even though I began complaining of swelling and pain in my knee. I did not end up completing the program and was told that I needed to see Dr. Navani. During this visit, Dr. Navani never examined my knee! She said that I had shown improvement during the program, so she was removing all of my work restrictions. I was extremely upset and tried to get her to hear me that my knee felt worse. She wouldn't listen. I ended up asking to be referred to another doctor, who EXAMINED my knee, reinstated the restrictions, and ordered an MRI. The MRI showed a lot of problems. I had surgery two weeks ago (4/2019). Dr. Navani and her team failed me on many levels. Please find another doctor who will acknowledge your concerns.

The front office is unprofessional and rude. Then the doctors are in a rush to get you out of there. Where is the quality? Definitely not here. Typical city clinic setting and never again.

Dr. Navani is a miracle worker. She seems to truly care about her patients, is very knowledgeable & is excellent at making her patients feel heard & their pain validated. She comes up w/ multiple options for treatment planning to ensure it is a realistic path - taking all variables into consideration such as insurance coverage, financial limitations etc. As a long time patient at this organization, I feel the negative reviews do not reflect her or the practice accurately. 10-star review for me!

The front office staff is not professional and will literally use their cell phones when patients are trying to speak to them. I requested an appointment with Dr Navani and was scheduled with someone else. Then Dr Navani happened to be there on the day of my appointment but didn't acknowledge me when I tried to speak to her about my referral to her. I ended up leaving in the middle of the disorganization. Terrible experience this office needs serious help.

Sadly, I did not have a good experience with Dr. Navani. Do not expect someone to answer the phone when you call the office. After leaving multiple voice messages, someone finally called back... one year later, asking for the wrong person. When I did see Dr. Navani, she did a super quick eval. of me, shushing me while I tried to explain my symptoms. Her resulting diagnosis was incorrect and the recommendations made would have caused me serious injury had I followed them.

I was referred to Dr. Murakami who works with Dr. Navani by my primary care doctor. My primary care doctor mentioned Dr. Murakami had treated several of his patients in the past who expressed satisfaction with Dr. Murakami's care. He was right because I am very happy I found such a great doctor who listens to my health needs and explains my treatment plan in depth. Although I am in process of healing, I am so glad to have found Dr. Murakami. I refer her to everyone I know who has ongoing pain.

I had a back injury late last year and began to see Mrs Jaye Andaya and Dr. Navani in Campbell, CA. The providers listen to me as a person and are invested in helping me improve my strength and overall health through physical therapy and lots of follow up care. The front office staff has been very friendly and organized as well. Although my travel time to Campbell can be far, it is well worth it. Thank you Comprehensive Spine and Sports Center.

I saw Dr. Navani about an issue with my back and hip. She seemed very knowledgeable but her staff was horrendous. She told me to get an MRI and her staff told me I should schedule the MRI myself. I was surprised by this but called the MRI centers suggested. What did they tell me? The Doctor's office needs to schedule to MRI. To make matters worse, Dr. Navani's staff scheduled me into surgery WITHOUT the MRI which would have been a DISASTER. Very poor office staff with zero regards to patients.

Dr. Navani is a miracle worker. She has a fantastic bedside manner, she took her time to answer all of my questions and she worked with me to find a solution to my back pain. After receiving relief from epidural injections, I wanted a permanent and medication free solution. Dr. Navani then performed a bone marrow procedure that used my own stem cells to heal my injured discs. 3 months following the procedure I had 100% relief and I am back to my active life. I cannot recommend her enough!

Very very difficult office to deal with. Always have to leave message on machine no matter what time of day and when someone finally calls back and you leave message for who you need to speak with, that can take up to a week - you are definitely left with the feeling that your needs are very unimportant. I read the reviews that were made by other patients and found and agreed that the negative responses are well founded and right on point and I wish I had read them before I made my appt.

Very Competent caring Physicians who listens, examines evaluates the data and comes to a right diagnosis and discusses treatment modes in a very simple comprehensive way . made me feel at ease and relieved me of my cervical radiculopathy with her deft laser guided hands . She was willing to see me at 6.30 am and operate at 6.30 am as she had a very busy schedule.

She does not take responsibility for her office's wrong doing and plays games to avoid and caused me a very major pain and hell. Not a person that cares for her patients. She sends them away in pain and comes with excuses that I in a big and major and lots of pain, I did not and was not polite with her office. Its all games to avoid of helping and stay away from responsibility. Her office inflicted pain in me and instead of helping and following to help me, she stopped seeing me. Victor Shadan.

It was horrible, she can not tell the difference between a chronic pain patient and an addict so she treats all her patients like addicts. She even lied to me and told me her clinic doesn't offer opioids, when she does. We don't need doctors that lie to us,isn't it unethical?
