      I am an RN and have had a 20 year back pain problem that was so severe I ended up on disability. I have had nothing but positive interactions with Dr Arfai. He is a very kind man and an excellent physician. I now have a spinal cord implant and take zero pain medications. Life without excruciating pain and without narcotics is wonderful. I would absolutely recommend Dr Arfai.

      Don't waste your time with this doctor. He is totally incompetent and will not treat with any medications. He also judges you if you see other doctors for other conditions. I have several conditions and some give me meds but nothing narcotic. I didn't even want a narcotic drug. He judged me and broke his Hippocratic oath to treat the patient.

      I went in with back pain I've suffered for the past 20 years, after finally, my insurance company allowing me to see a pain management specialist on Feb 1, 2016. Dr. Arfai ordered an MRI, which one of his staff member entered into the computer and got me an instant approval. She made an appointment for Feb 14, 2016. When I went in, he had the results, and before coming into the room, he had already read my MRI results and knew them without consulting the report!!! He is awesome!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
