Had been living with lower back pain for 3 very long years and have had limited mobility for 7 months. Dr. B. Taimoorazy explained injection treatment option very well, so I could clearly understand and he got the job done. What a relief! It's wonderful to be free from lower back pain. He is a kind and caring MD Specialist. I greatly appreciate his expertise and his ability to communicate with me. I was treated like I mattered.

I have seen Dr. Taimoorazy since June 2012. I love his bedside manner. He truly cares about how you feel. He has always shown me exactly what he is talking about with his prototypes in the office. I leave clearly understanding what is going on and how to treat it. Dr. Taimoorazy really is a comprehensive doctor who cares. I would truly recommend him.
