Gave me 8 injections at 9am in severe pain since 12 called no call back at 3 was told prescription would be called in. At 5 still no script still in severe pain. Office was closed. How can you leave a patient in severe pain all that time

Best doctor we have ever found. So kind and patient, never feel rushed. He has helped my mom with her pain multiple times now. She is just about pain free thanks to him. Been going for years and yes the wait can be really long at times but it's so worth it. Best bedside manner we have ever seen in a doctor. Highly recommend! A+

Just a horrible experience, and I've been seeing him 5 plus years. It's gone down the toilet. You can't even see him, he only does injections and he lets his assistant take all the heat. His staff is subpar. Cuts your meds without even talking to you. I'm getting a new doctor. He has had to lose a lot of patients, but he doesn't care since he has the work load of 3 doctors. 2 of those doctors left under suspicious circumstances. And finally he changed the name of his practice. He even has a prompt now to speak with his legal team. Can you say malpractice

Dr. Abusharif is great at pain management. My mother-in-law saw other doctors with little help prior to seeing this one. He was able to get to the root of the problem and help relieve incredible pain for her without medication or pills. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His bedside manner was outstanding and took his time explaining the situation to us. Wait has been long at times but well worth it.

After doctor Rabi left the place is a joke. You have to wait two hours to be seen. Office girls double book patients for the same time. It is impossible to call anyone in their office. All you get is a voice mail to leave a message. Time to find a new pain doctor. They will lose a lot of patients if they don't straighten things out

Doctor is fine...it is dealing with his staff that's an issue. They double book patients for the same time making people wait 90 minutes or more to see a doctor. Getting someone on the phone at this clinic is almost impossible. I waited on hold for 22 minutes to reschedule my appointment. I had an issue where my insurance did not pay for the dose of pain meds the doctor gave me. So my prescription had to be changed. It took over a week for the pain med girl in the office to call CVS back to change my dosage. I was out of pain meds for over a week

I've been a patient of the practice for ove 1 year. My Dr left the practice and I was switched over to Dr Abusharif. Without discussing my problems with me he cut my medications by 25%. I have had numerous failed back operation an a failed knee operation with a second knee operation requored but can't be done for 6 months. He refuses to discuss my case with me and I have been advised if I don't like it I cam seek another pain management practice to go to. I have siggested to his staff that he at least discuss my case with my orthopedic Doc and my primary Doc. The ones I talked to said it didn't matter. Read the other reviews and see him at your own risk.

Both my wife and I have had appointments canceled at the last minute or waited over an hour and then had them canceled. He might be a great Doctor, but I wouldn't know. From what I hear, his arrogance is unreal. So, can't give him any good review. Sounds like a Money Grabber.

Dr Abusharif is a true professional and the best in the business. He is VERY knowledgeable and compassionate to his patients and has the best bed side manners I've ever seen a doctor have as he truly cares about his patients. Even though at times there can be a bit of a wait for your appt, it is well worth it.

This doctor is routinely late for ALL appts. On June 7th, 2018 I told him he was 1.5 hrs late for our appt to which he replied he was sorry. At that point I told him ALL previous appts were also over 1 hr waits and could we show up an hour late for future appts to which he replied “then find someone else to treat you, I don’t need this” and stormed out of the room, slammed the door and refused to treat my wife. I understand doctors run late on occasion, but this doctor could care less.

Dr. Abusharif leaves his patients waiting for hours. He does not thoroughly examine them and does not come up with long term goals or plans for his patients. I’ve been going for years with little relief. Saw a new dr today who has plans for a bright future for me.

Dr Abusharif is great as long as you do not have any issues with medications. No one calls you back.... I usually have to leave 4-5 messages a day to get someone to call you back.... And even then you are not guaranteed to get a call back. I have never had this hard of a time getting a hold of a doctor ever. I am honestly thinking about finding a new pain manager even though I do like my doctor.

I cannot speak for the doctors expertise since I waited 2 hours in the waiting room and another half hour in the exam room and gave up and left. Receptionist was pleasant but medical assistant was a bit harsh.
