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 patient for more than 10 years. He is patient kind sympathetic and thorough. He did not dismiss my pain as unreal but asked questions and listened until he pinpointed the underlying causes of my pain. You will have a bit of a wait but for good reason. The doctor takes the time to find out how you are really doing and is concerned about you as a person. No rush job just a real human being that really cares.

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.
