worse place around. their epidural made my condition worse. they don't care. dr. doesn't take calls and office manger when I called to explain what happened, 2 times, said we are working on it. I called their ans. serv. to have dr. paged because of the severe reaction I had to his nephew's epidural, he never called me back. i would find another place. i hope they didn't do any permanent damage. time will tell stay away from them. i'm reporting this practice.

Dorothy W. Dorothy W. in the last week I Went to see Dr Abusharif and I was greeted by his staff that were more than pleasant, I arrived early and his office was quite full and everything was moving along faster than expected, I was then accompanied buy a nurse that was very nice and she took my temp and blood pressure and was asked some health questions, Dr. Abusharif very pleasant and listened and I never felt rushed, The dr and his staff made me feel very comfortable, highly recommended.
I have been to both offices and his Orland Park staff is horrible. The silver Cross staff is wonderful. He is a great doctor who takes time with you and even listens to whatever else is going on. But he needs to do something abou the rudesness of the staff. The person you call for your medication refils is also quite short if there is a problem. But I guess you need to put up with it if you need a good pain doctor.
Clean office. Excellent Doctor. Dr Abusharif took the time to explain in detail my condition and the prognosis. He is very caring and compassionate. Great office staff. Very friendly and personable. I Highly recommend Dr. Abusharif.
Dr abusharif addressed my pain and was so kind and patient. The office staff was helpful and prepared me mentally and physically for the procedure. I'm now pain free and able to resume activities that I haven't done in years.
Great service and experience. I've been living with knee and joint pain too long and Dr Faris abusharif addressed my pain. I never realized i could be pain free until I met Dr Abusharif.
Excellent bedside manner. Excellent service. I have been dealing with chronic back pain for years. Dr. Faris Abusharif was able to relieve me of the pain. I feel great.

My initial visit with Dr. Abusharif was a normal experience. He was empathic and understood how much pain I was in and discussed options to eliminate it. He proceeded with a spinal epidural that day (without sedation, because his staff never called to tell me not to eat before my visit!!!) My second visit did not go very well! I did get the epidural but never saw the Dr before or after the injection! The nurse left me entirely alone in the procedure room to go find him!!!
