I had surgery in 2016. I just received a letter in the mail dated 3/27/2019 from Dr. Hamid’s office stating they reviewed my acct and found a balance of $14.63. Instead of invoicing me for it, they sent a letter 3 yrs later threatening to send it to a collections agency if I don't pay. I paid thousands of $$$s for my surgery, why would I not pay $14.63 if it was invoiced? When I called the office I get an answering machine. How can they threaten people for their mistakes? Very unprofessional!

I have Fibromyalgia. On my first visit, this pisshead came in the exam room and assaulted me by trying to hit my tender points with a percussion hammer. I was in a flare of symptoms for days!

I am a patient of this practice, it's been a year, first they were my caregivers while I was in the hospital, all three doctors were very attentive in addressing my needs in pain control, so I turned my care over to them. They treat my whole self and one thing that impressed me is they not only LISTEN, but address my concerns as well. Every patient I've personally met is quite happy with how these doctors treat them. So if you're looking for QUALITY care ? These are the Doctors I recommend.

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.
