Dr. Hamid seems like a very good doctor, who genuinely cares about his patients. However, the office staff is the worst I've ever had to deal with. Staff does not answer the phone, return phone calls, or contact insurance providers or call in prescriptions in a timely manor.

Dr. Hamid and the staff at Innova Pain Center are professional and caring. They recommend/do procedures that have alleviated my nagging back pain without the constant use of pain pills. Anyone needing relief should come here.
