I have suffered from chronic pain for over 20 years. Firas Hijazi, MD provides me the best relief using RF Ablation and other methods which reduced the need for Opioids. Worked hard to get me approved through my insurance company when I was suddenly dropped without sufficient notice to continue treatment.

This doctor does not listen, all he does is talk when you try to talk. He does not work well with your other treating physicians and undermines them. He is not knowledgeable about medications or their chemical makeup. He will accuse you of being a drug seeker on the streets bc his lack of knowledge to some everyday medications people are prescribed. This doctor is a real joke! Save yourself the headache.

I didn't feel that I was respected or heard at all!! I was sent to him for pain relief but I already had a script, so they made me feel like I was just there to get the "pills". They told me to get X-rays of my pain areas. I did. They told me it was just arthritis! ! I have been struggling with Lupus for 18 yrs. I had to tell them that. They don't treat Lupus. Didn't want them to treat my Lupus!!! I needed them to do what they do. Help me with the PAIN MY LUPUS CAUSES ME!!! FAILED

I saw Dr. Hijazi this week, and I was so pleased. He was kind and had a wonderful bedside manner. I gave me many options to help control my chronic pain. I would recommend him to anyone that suffers every day of their life. I saw another doctor in hopes that he could help me , and he was nothing like Dr. Hijazi. I will certainly continue to see Dr. Hijazi. He is a first class man. His staff could not have been better. I had to wait for an hour, but that was fine with me.

“To echo the other star reviews, the doctor and his staff have been extremely helpful to me with a variety of my issues. Despite having a busy practice, I’m almost always able to schedule an appt. within a few days of my calling and receive a response to my email or phone questions often the same day. I’ve consulted many MDs in my life, and it’s rare I’ve found one as knowledgalble, accommodating, and concerned as Dr. Hijazi!

My appointments begin within minutes of my arriving (so no long wait). He was very attentive to how I was feeling. Very friendly and easy to deal with.
