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

Waited for 1 hour. One patient before me and no one in waiting room. Patients should not be treated like their time is less valuable than the Drs. Would not recommend.

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.
