I was in soooo much pain from my sciatica. Dr Assil recommended an epidural. I can’t tell you how awesome I feel after the procedure! My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner! Yes sometimes you might wait a while before the doctor comes into the room, but it is definitely worth the wait.

First of all, Dr. Assil is the greatest. During my initial visit, he listened so attentively (something not readily found these days). He explained everything to me. His staff took all my time and lifestyle restraints into consideration and arranged the procedure that he recommended. I have tremendous respect and faith in his work. In addition, his office staff and the nursing staff at the Saxon Surgery Center are great at their jobs, made me feel very comfortable, and couldn't have been more helpful.

Ever since I’ve been going to Dr.Assil for my migraine headaches I’ve found that my headaches aren’t as bad as before , before going to him no other Dr’s (neurologist) had found a solution or a answer to why my headache were so bad I came to dr Assil and as soon as I started getting my treatments through my nose I found that my headaches where not frequent like the past couple of years now there lightly coming and going and I’m at ease with this treatment I’m comfortable and aren’t in pain as much I highly recommend it to people who have severe migraine headaches he is so gentle and patient with you and your decisions.

Over the course of many years of back and leg pains which had progressed to a point where it was affecting my quality of life, my primary physician referred me to Dr. Kaymar Assil. After his examination, etc. he ultimately suggested the Superior Vertiflex Spacer procedure. That being said I walked into the outpatient clinic where in Dr. Assil implanted two spacers. About 2 hours later, I walked out of the clinic. It was an amazing difference and so easy. That was in late October 2018 and now, six months later I have a 90% improvement in my pain level. For me it was an amazing difference and so easy. Prior to the procedure I could not be on my feet more that an hour or two without having to sit down. Today, I can go all day with virtually no issues. Sure a few aches and pains but at age 80 that is expected. Many thanks to Dr. Assil and the procedure he recommended and performed. I highly recommend you meet with Dr. Assil and avail yourself of his extensive medical experience.

I could not be happier with my results. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and had severe back and leg pain, with numbness and tingling in my legs and feet.Dr. Assil was a real life saver. He inserted the Superion implant and the relief was immediate. Dr. Assil was very kind, easy to talk to and answered all my questions the office staff and the staff at the Saxon Surgery center are amazing If you are experiencing pain like I was I urge you to go see Dr.Assil.

Dr Assil is kind and patient and gentle. It is easy to get an appointment, and if you need a procedure, you never have to wait more than two weeks. He has done one epidural injection, which worked when another Dr had said it wouldn’t. I am now scheduled for an injection in another spot in my messed up back.
