This young Dr. is top notch. I’m 81 and very active. I had bad neck pain, in three weeks with his injections and Ablation. I am near pain free and look forward to golfing in Arizona this winter. I would recommend him to anyone with neck or back pain.

Absolutely horrible!!! Waited two hours past my appointment time. Saw him for five minutes. He had NO idea what to do for me until I gave him suggestions. He cannot do my surgery so referring me back to my original neurosurgeon to do the surgery. Horrible staff, no compassion. None of them listen, they are very rude!!!

Longest wait time I have ever had was over 2 1/2 hours past my appointment time until I was seen. Until we brought up options for my care he had NONE, but once I asked about options I had researched he finally said, yeah, we can try those. Can’t perform my surgery so now I have to go back to neurosurgeon who “might” do it. All told, I am greatly disappointed.

I seen Dr Sayed after moving back to the area. I have had 5 different surgeries that equaled into 4 fusions in my Cervical spine and 3 in my lumbar. They all failed and now I live in chronic pain. Surgeries were done by a different physician. Dr Sayed is the only physician who has ever offered a spinal cord stimulator. I felt a bit overwhelmed and rushed, yet he seems to know his stuff

I stopped going to the Spine Center for treatment because I did not want to continue to be a patient of Dr. Sayed. He does not listen with any sort of compassion. Basically, he was a jerk. He didn't view the records that I presented him. I still can't believe he didn't even examine me. All he did was ask me to look right and look left. Horrible experience with this doctor.

I have never in my life been treated as badly by any human as I have this one. He has no compassion no empathy. Does not even come close to working with patients. If any thing you want explained or done does not benefit him he will let you go as a patient. The hospital actually told me he does not treat chronic pain. I would not recommend him to anyone

Not the same doctor anymore. You are merely a number with this doctor, he will not hesitate to sign you up for injections he knows haven't helped in the past. When they don't work, he washes his hands. Doesn't even followup on expensive radiology scans. Runs an injection mill.

Very poor service. Very rude and refused to explain things even after 2 apt. After saying I would not do a procedure that provided no relief I was treated worse than anywhere ever. My last visit I was left in a room for 2 and half hours and he left for the day
