Dr. Hashim saw me in a timely manor and greeted me with a cute "hello sunshine." We discussed the issues I am having with my back in great detail and came up with a plan to begin trying to isolate the issue and treat the cause. Glad I found the center and feel great about working with her.

I have had a decade of chronic pain and numerous surgeries. Dr Hashim has been wonderful in helping me deal with my pain. She is very compassionate and explained everything. She allowed me to make the decisions, while telling me the pros and cons. Great staff as well. Life-changing experience.

I have been seeing Dr. Hashim for over a dozen years. After seeing other Dr.'s and other procedures, Dr. took the time to listen and has been a tremendous help to me with managing my pain. She truly is compassionate even when it's just a needle poke. I'm grateful for having her and her staff.

Dr. Hashim has been my pain specialist for more than 10 years. Doctor also sees my husband and when diagnosed with cancer continued to manage his pain associated with that diagnosis as well. Dr. Hashim has provided me with numerous spinal injections over the years, in fact that is why I started to see her, after 2 years, I asked her if she would take over managing my pain medication. Dr. Hashim runs a tight ship, and through this we eliminated 3 medications from my regime, and many side effects went away. Following her protocols has given me a clear mind, pain relief, and I feel I am participating in life again. I have had 7 back surgeries, and don’t want anymore. Dr. Hashim’s skill with injections is the best I have ever had. Those injections have helped so much I have avoided further surgery. Lastly with the Covid 19 pandemic, Dr. Hashim made arrangements for our monthly visit. Keeping my husband safe. Chronic pain patients should feel safe & secure with Dr. Hashim.

After having several injections with Dr. Hashim I’ve come to realize that all she cares about is making money. She is super unprofessional & I’ve never had a physician make me feel so small. I asked her if she could give me a letter for work with restrictions to not lift anything heavier than 50 lbs & her answer was “no I cannot do that for you.” She was never rude to me before until I told her that the injections weren’t working anymore & I need surgery. Even then she told me “well this is how things need to be done.” Needless to say, she didn’t do anything for me & I am still in pain.

I’ve been in severe pain for the last 25 years and no doctor could find the source. I’ve had too many x-rays, MRI’s and quite a few unnecessary surgeries. I was originally sent to Hashim so that she could “manage” my pain meds. She asked about my history and wanted a current MRI, reluctantly I had another one. Hashim was able to find what she thought was the source of my pain. I had my first epidural injection 2 weeks ago and was pain free within 2 days! She has literally given me a new life! I would highly recommend her to anyone!

I've seen Dr. Hashim for several years now to treat chronic pain. She's a great doctor that works to find the best solution for her patients. She's strict with the rules but with all the abuse in the news she needs to be. If you're serious about finding pain relief I'd highly recommend Dr. Hashim

I was her patient for many of the years I lived in Naperville(15) and wish I could continue with her because I got the most pain relief with her. And we had so much fun! She would tell the nurses I was the patient who made her humble! (because of my spinal condition and chronic pain)

She is by far the worst doctor that I have ever been to and is unethical and not compassionate. She violated several laws by recommending procedures over limits and keeping doors open when meeting with me. She warned me that she would never prescribe medicine unless I did surgical procedures with her. When I did one procedure and it didn't work, she tried to force me to do more, and never checked up on me. Her appointments take 2-3.5 hours per appointment. She refused to listen to me as well

First off, Dr. Hashim runs late 90% of the time. Once you get used to that, everything is fine. She is an awesome doctor and will spend as much time with you as needed. I've been going to her for almost 10 years.

I have been seeing Dr. Hashim for 5 years. I have had 7 back surgeries and had been under another pain specialists care. She has helped me wean off unnecessary drugs and has worked patiently to assure compliance with narcotics. All my injections have helped over the years. I feel that she has given me back control of my life.

Dr. Hashim will not listen & does not care about you. I was't comfortable w/the procedures, but the staff pushed me to make appointments with sedation. After, I decided I did't want unnecessary anesthesia & called multiple times to learn more about the procedure & calm my concerns. They made no attempt to find anything out for me. She refused to listen to my concerns, complained that she was too busy to deal with this, then walked away on me. Lacks compassion & concern for patient experience.

This was the most informative woman I've ever met. Very quick exam and she knew exactly where my pain was. Explained how it happens and how to manage it. Very nice, didn't just throw pills at me offers various actions to care and manage the pain. Love love love this doctor. I have already recommended her to 3 other people today. I have nothing negative to say. Staff was just as nice and professional as the doctor.

2 hours late for appointment after being called in 30 mins. Early at dr.s request. Extremely unprofessional, arrogant and rude. Has no voice mail, a tiny staff that is immature and also unprofessional. Dr. Came in for appointment 2 hours late, in street attire and made no attempt to apologize for the delay. Looking disheveled and unkept. When I questioned her about her lack of concern for our time, requesting an apology, she not only wouldn't apologize she cancelled appointment and walked out.
