      Dr.Annabi and his assisting staff are excellent. The relief I experienced from the nerve ablation was fantastic ! I really respect Dr. Annabi and his staff, they tell you the truth and have your health and best interest at heart. You can believe what this Dr. tells you, how refreshing! I would recommend him to family and friends without hesitation.

      First of all, I took my time and did the research about Dr.Annabi before visiting him. I don't just go to a doctor, it has to be the decision based on the patient satisfaction, education, clinical experience and a human approach, in the other word, how much doctor really cares. I probably asked him over 20 questions about the methods and procedures, preventions of the pain management, etc..When I left I knew found the doctor to trust, most knowledgeable in pain field. Dr. annabi is the best.

      in Tucson, AZ |
      The doctors and staff are wonderful. They did a Kyphoplasty of Thoracic Vertebrae on my mom. It worked wonders. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks. From Shirley Miller and family.

      Dr. Annabi and all the staff ( from other physicians to the medical assistants to technicians) at the Pima Pain Center are compassionate, understanding, and have great bed side manners. He has truly improved my quality of life based on procedures and medications specific to my condition. The wait times have increased since I began but it is obviously because of the increase patients, as I've seen in the lobby, but that only speaks to his and the center's quality of care.
      in Tucson, AZ |
      Dr. Annabi is a wonderful physician! I've suffered from chronic pain for several years, and it took quite some time to find a doctor who is so experienced and empathetic. He also has a fanastic rapport with both patients and staff. I'm blessed to have such an intelligent, caring doctor dedicated to my pain management. I highly recommend Dr. Annabi to anyone suffering chronic pain (who is not looking for a quick pain medication prescription.)
      in Tucson, AZ |
      This doctors procedures have eliminated 100% of my pain for over a year with only two treatments. This doctor works MIRACLES!!

      visit did not go well at all and I will never go back to this center, this dr is a jerk
      in Sahuarita, AZ |
      I ADORE my Dr. Annabi. I was one of his first patients in early 12/14. I've been to several other pain doctor's & they all stunk. I trust him implicitly. Actually, I not only adore him, I LOVE him. He's been trying to help me with my back pain. Have given his card out to several people I've met and I would never tell anyone to go to a doctor that I wouldn't go to myself. Love that he calls me Bethie instead of Beth. Met his family & doggie Pasha. Beautiful! You have pain, GO NOW!!!!
      in Tucson, AZ |
      Dr. Annabi is the first doctor in a long time that actually took the time to listen to me and understand where my pain was coming from. I truly wish he could be my general doctor everyday. I have had no issues with him or his staff. Everyone has been very supportive, friendly and caring since the very first visit. I would recommend Dr. Annabi to everyone.

      Dr Annabi at Pima Pain Center in Tucson AZ is by far the best pain management physician I have ever met. He not only has great bedside manners but is a true expert in his profession. The office is absolutely beautiful and the staff are very kind and extremely caring. God bless this practice and Dr Annabi's hands to continue providing excellent pain management injections and patient care. Sincerely, Aric Harold

      Caring and passionate . Want a real doctor you found him. Staff knows how to treat patients with compassion. Medical director is so knowledgeable , helpful and goes out of his way to make a difference . They try to make you smile even though you having a bad day. Thank you
      Tucson, AZ |
      well at first I was hesitant but after meeting doctor annabi and his staff I was so surprised, they all listened to me and to my concerns. I will recommend him. his therapy approach to helping with my neck and back has been wonderful, and im down to only taking tramadol. I am so happy for my doctor referring me to this place. I can run again after my procedure.
      in Tucson, AZ |
      Dr. Annabi and Dr. Shiller are both very compassionate and also knowledgeable about procedures to alleviate pain. I would recommend anyone with chronic pain to these physicians. The girls in the office are a bit cold and robotic. There isn't much of a wait time to see anyone. It's very efficient.
      in Tucson, Arizona |
      He is knowledgeable, wise, and compassionate. I not only would, but have recommended him to several friends. One of the office girls is a challenge, but he, and the rest of the staff more than make up for her. I wouldn't have any other Dr. for a pain specialist!!!
      in Tucson, Az |
      Dr Annabi, his care for his patients is genuine. I was dreading a procedure before Christmas, so he postponed it until January. I was elated. He listened to me and my concerns. I also have a 2 year old daughter. He has helped me manage my pain, discussed and, helped me decided, to postpone back surgery so that I can pick up my daughter. He manages my pain without my feeling out of my head on prescription meds. Couldnt have a better doctor or friend. Thank you Emil. :-)

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
