Makes you feel like family, if you have any problems he will make time to see you. I had been in pain for years and seeing my family doctor finally he referred me to dr Ansari I was nervous like most are nothing worked for the pain after my first visit something felt different he didn't rush me in and out and listened to my concerns. After 5 years of seeing him we wanted to try and lower all medications if possible we set a plan. During this process he said if you are in more pain than you can handle tell me after we reduced meds I hurt but not anything I couldn't tolerate so the next month we reduced again and so on. I have been off all medications fo 2 years now and feel great. Doctors at this practice know that medication has a place but they also know people can get in trouble with their medications they do everything possible to help you have a normal life again.
