    Dr El Khoury is a caring personable doctor. . He has been my doctor for more than 15 years. I don't know what I would have done without his help. He is not a pill prescriber as some pain management doctors. He knows his patients and cares about them beyond the office.

    Please stay as far away as possible from this doctor & his office. He has no respect for patients doesn't understand pain medication was made for people in pain. He doesn't care in improving a patients quality of life with medication therapy. Pain really can destroy every aspect of a persons life & mental health but he dorsn't care. Awful person & doctor.

    I have chronic L5-S1 Damage in left leg after having a microdesectomy on L5 and received great care from Dr. El Khourey with epidural injections back in 2000-2003. He was caring and gentle. The epidurals gave me some relief. Unfortunately I could not see him anymore because of loss of insurance. I truly recommend Dr. El Khourey, he knows his profession very well.

    I have consulted with 2 other pain management physicians in the area, both of whom were far inferior to Dr. El Khoury. They were both young physicians who were not interested in my spinal problems. I find that Dr. El Khoury's staff will work with me if I am having an acute problem. The office is clean. I have to agree that the wait time can sometimes be very long, but compared to the other physicians I saw, I have to admit that I prefer Dr. El Khoury and have returned back to him for my care

    Horrific. I have never in my life been treated so badly by a medical office. I never even saw the doctor until 6 months after I had been going there!! When you try to explain anything on the phone they cut you off, interupt you, even laugh at you and put you on hold in the middle of talking. They send in my authorization 2 days before my apt knowing it takes up to 7 days then calls to cancel my apt the day before. This office is a joke and a nightmare

    I have been a long time patient of Dr. El Khoury, longer then 10 years. The injections did not help me. I was being helped for severe neck/back pain with pain meds. Suddenly on my last visit, I was told that I was being referred to another Doctot not in their practice. I have NEVER abused my meds and took only the amount prescribed. The Dr. they were sending me to was a G.P. specialized in treatment with Suboxone (for Opiate withdrawals) I chose not to see this other Dr. and took myself off.
