in Campbell, CA |
Great experience. My pain has reduced and I am feeling much better.
in San Jose, CA |
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.
in San Jose, CA |
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.
San Jose, CA |
All the bad reviews I read on her are all so true, always seeing her PAs who hav no respect when I do see her she dont even know what she suppose to be treating me for, no one there listens to how bad my pain is, and the worst part is im still in so much pain because of them I was never treated for things I should of been treated for.
in San Jose, CA |
I never get to see her its always seeing her PAs who all act like there doctors and knows whats best for you, to me its all about money for this office.
in Ector, Tx previously San Jose, CA |
Dr. Navani was my first pain management Dr. after having a cervical fusion. I was having major migraines, like I never had before. We agreed the migraines were probably caused by the muscles in my neck responding negatively to the newly fused vertebrae. A treatment plan which included one Botox treatment, provided me with long term relief. She was instrumental in providing well balanced approach to pain relief. Not just a prescription writer, she's very intuitive, empathetic, BEST Dr. EVER
in Santa Clarita, CA |
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.
in San Jose, CA |
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?
