Dr. Hoda Elzawahry took over my pain management several years ago to keep me from having to drive to Atlanta every 90 days to see my pain management specialist after being sent home from the hospital after a lumbar fusion with Hospice. Picked up MRSA in surgery and upon leaving hospital spent next five weeks with a picc line and Vancomycin in morning and evenings. Surgeon saved me from losing ability to walk and Dr. Elzawahry has given my life back by solving my pain. Thanks so much!

Dr. Hoda Elzawahry was very patient & knowledgeable. She took her time to listen to my concerns. While, she maybe one of the newest neurologist's at the Brain and Spine Center; I have no doubt she will excel & become a tremendous asset as the science of Neurology advances.. To those patients who gave her a low score; I'm assuming you usually see Dr. Kamel Elz. & have been spoiled by his compassion and kindness. I know I have been spoiled. Give her some time; she will amaze you !!

Very unprofessional, even using her cellphone while we were talking. Didn't listen to my concerns and even prescribed me a much higher dose of a new medicine she started me on after I told her how incredibly sick it was making me to the point where I couldn't even drive due to double vision. I could tell she didn't care what I had to say, if she was even listening in the first place.

Dr. Nazir (who I really like) was out of the country so they had Dr. Elzawahry give me my injections. She was so professional and friendly. She showed so much empathy as she was trying to keep my pain to a minimum (injecting medicine in my face around my eyes!). I would recommend her to anyone.

The most insensitive and uncaring physician I have ever met. Never again.

She has no bed side manners! She took notes 90% of our consultation and rarely looked up. She rushed me out so I was unable to tell her all of why I was there and needed some help. The diagnosis she gave me did not even match my complaints of what had been experiencing after my surgery. She seems very inexperience! I will NOT return! The fact she is associated with the Stringers says it all!
