Dr. Annabi, his doctors and staff are very focused in isolating and minimizing my 7/24 chronic pain. I have been seen by Dr. Annabi, Dr. Stephen Shiller, Yvonne Mclemore NP, and Estelle Farrell, DO, all of whom listen and understand my pain levels. Each have answered my questions and concerns with genuine care and professionalism, and have put forth a treatment plan that is best for me. Sage, at the front desk, is tops in her field, too!
Joseph, thank you so much for the testimonial and feedback. This is great news to hear. We look forward to serving you in the future.

My battle with Spinal osteoporosis has been anything but easy and painful.A lot of different doctors and specialist tried so many different meds, treatments etc.but never finding the right combo for pain relief. I have accepted I will never find absolute relief or be cured and may only get worse. But I must say one thing, it has been 7 months at pima and this has been the most effective place for treatment, therapy and they just overall care. It can be a bit of a wait but worth it. Go see them!
Bethsaida, Thank you so much for the testimonial and feedback. We are happy to hear we have met you expectations.

I have been seeing Nurse Practitioner Yvonne McLemore and she is WONDERFUL. Such a caring, sweet person who actually LISTENS to you and works hard to get the best results for the patient. I am looking forward to starting the injections and then the nerve ablations as I have been in SO much pain for quite some time. I have great hopes of this working. The staff is so kind and sweet, I am very happy and impressed with this office.
Thanks you so much Shauna for the feedback on N.P. Yvonne and your experience. We are so happy to hear your pleased with your experience.
Marana, AZ |
He is truly a blessing, best pain Dr I have seen other than his partner. He is very kind, honest and listens to all your concerns and has terrific bed side manner. I don't feel judged?. I love how he will take a call at 1 am and speak with you if need be instead of a voicemail. I have had much more suitable pain management sence becoming his patient, he truly cares about you and your quality of life during chronic pain. I would recommend him to any one struggling as much as I was beforehand?.
Thank you so much for the 5 star review and feedback!

6 months ago I transferred to Pima from Rincon Pain. I was tired of being treated like nothing more than an addict. After pursuing scans of my spine, Ross asked me on FOUR CONSECUTIVE visits when i was pursuing surgery. NO. I'm NOT interested in surgery or more drugs, I'm interested in understanding my condition. Finally, I got fed up and I am so glad I did! Both Dr Annabi & Shiller are kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. They don't me treat me as shifty-eyed addict. I am a patient.
Lisa, Your story is important to us and everyone else who may be in similar situation. thank you so much for sharing and for the 5 star review and feedback!

I would recommend any family and friends to this place because of how amazing dr shiller is. I would not ever go see Dr Farrell again tho. Still get a 5 stars because of how great and amazing dr shiller is. He's very complete as well as knowledgeable. I'm a disabled Iraq veteran and seen a lot of different drs and in 8 years dr shiller I can honestly say is the most helpful I've ever had.

I was diagnosed with CRPS, fibro and migraines when I started seeing Dr. Annabi. He helped me with several different meds. But one day he wanted to do a trial run with a spinal cord stimulator. The trial worked so well I got one done permanently. Thanks to Dr. Annabi being up on meds and procedures and new techniques....I am having more luck with getting some better relief in my legs. I am also having procedures done at different intervals on my spine and nerves which are also helpful.
Thank you so much Tracy for your 5 star review and feedback!
Tucson, AZ |
I was in so much pain, could not sit, stand or walk...tried so many different medications and methods, nothing helped until I was sent to Dr. Annabi's office. The therapy he prescribed helped immediately, but the 2nd and 3rd treatments gave the best results. I am functioning just like I did before, and I did not think this would be possible. Dr. Annabi has a good way of comforting patients using humor, he explained the treatment very well (in few words). He knows his job, I trust him.
Thank you so much for the feedback and stellar review. We are very happy to hear that you are making much progress and will work hard to ensure it. Sincerely, Pima Pain Center Representative
in Green Valley, AZ |
Dr Annabi is the most passionate, caring Doctor I have had the pleasure of meeting and caring for me. He is a very busy man, but always makes you feel you are his only patient. I have suffered with severe back pain for almost two years. He instantly saw my problems and I was scheduled for surgery. The convenience of having the surgery at the Pima Pain Center is a big plus. My back pain is still a work in progress, but I know Dr Annabi will make it go away. He is giving me my life back.
Dear Connie, Thank you so much for the feedback and stellar review. We are very happy to hear that you are making much progress and will work hard to ensure it. Sincerely, Pima Pain Center Representative

in Tucson, AZ |
Amazing experience!! It started from my initial call when the receptionist. answered. She listened to ALL my concerns and issues and talked me through each and every one; and most importantly, I didn't feel rushed on the phone. I made calls to 3 other pain centers that day and decided on this one. Doctor Annabi, was wonderful too! he's very down to earth and honest about expectations. In his presence I felt as if I was his only concern. He made me feel very comfortable. The office runs on time a
So happy to hear you had a wonderful experience. It is our pleasure and main focus to provide the up most care. Thank you for the 5 star review

Dr Anabi is a skilled and caring physician. As I have told him, he has given me my life back after 15 years of spinal pain and limitations, surgeries, epidurals and incapacities. He is an amazing physician with the deep desire to make you feel better. My highest praise and recommendation. Robin Klaehn Quilliam

Has been my savior! can't explain how grateful I am to him for giving me my life back and treating my pain with the most noninvasive or addictive meds.

Long term pain is debilitating. Being treated like a felon when you are looking for help is debilitating in it's own way. Dr. Annabi treats YOUR pain. He views you as a fellow human that is looking for help. He explains what and why. I was having a terrible time with opiates (I would go into withdrawal within an hour after medicating). He heard me and customized a treatment plan that helps with the pain and gets me away from the opiates. Sounds corny but Dr. Annabi gave me my life back.
Thank you so much for your feedback & 5 star review

I was referred to Dr Annabi. I made an appointment with Dr Annabi and I get there & with out any notification I see this horrible man Dr schiller who talks the entire time, argues with EVERYTHING I say, REFUSES to answer questions and is absolutely horrible bed side manner- this guy acts like I must bow before him and I was told I literally should NOT question him again!
Dear Cat, So sorry you had an unpleasant experience, please feel free to call and discuss any concerns with our medical director. Thank you for the feedback

He is the best doctor I've ever worked with. He truly cares and is very knowledgeable, experienced, and talented. I wish all doctors were like him

I am an extremely satisfied patient of the Pima Pain Center for almost 2 years. The level of care given by the doctors and the staff is exceptional! Dr. Annabi cares enough about me to find the best treatments for my pain giving me a better quality of life as well as reducing my intake of pain medications. Wish all caregivers were this good!
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr Annabi and Dr SHiller have been extremely helpful to me in managing chronic back pain and deciding on treatment options. From my first visit he has helped me to understand the nature of my injury, potential options for treatment, and the pros and cons of each method. It is clear to me that Pima sees patient education as being of primary importance so that the patient can, along with the doctor, make informed decisions about treatment. His advice and feedback regarding potential treatment is g

The best ! You have helped me through the worst time and pain I have ever been through. Thank you.
in Tucson, AZ |
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.
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Annabi is s amazing doctor. He helped me in so many ways. His staff is amazing and I'm so happy I found his office.
in Mesa, AZ |
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.

Dr Annabi and Pima Pain Center come highly Recommended by The MedElite Group!
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.
in Tucson, AZ |
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!!
Tucson, AZ |
visit did not go well at all and I will never go back to this center, this dr is a jerk
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.
in Tucson AZ |
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
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. :-)
