The best. I should have seen her sooner. Better late than never. I have been sharing my wonderful experience with friends and family. She is everything you want in a doctor. Never felt rushed,answered all my questions, she really connects with her patients, gives you options and respect. She surrounds herself and patients with staff, and therapists that reflect her values. I have been to several doctors about my condition never felt this kind of caring from them or their staff nor have I ever recommended any of them to anyone else. I am so satisfied/happy to be her patient and will continue to be and recommend her to everyone.

Dr. El-Baghdadi is an excellent physician, extremely knowledgeable in her field. She has a caring attitude that makes her patients comfortable the minute she walks in the door. She explains everything in detail and answers all questions. I would never go to any other doctor for pain management.

I found Dr. El-Baghdadi through friends' successes with Illinois Bone and Joint in general. Read some reviews and made an appointment with her. I suffered from terrible lower back pain, pain that made having a normal life nearly impossible. Dr. El-Baghdadi gave me two medial branch block injections, and the results were immediate with each. I am able to participate in life again! She is a warm individual who is reliable, and she is excellent at giving injections. Hardly felt them. I will soon have an an ablation that should keep the pain at bay for many months. I had tried several doctors before her, and nothing worked. Now, I actually enjoy my appointments. I have never had to wait, and she is reliable at follow up calls.

Dr. El-Baghdadi is the first doctor in over 30 years of neck problems to suggest targeted trigger point injections to help with mobility. I just left the office & have significantly less pain & more mobility than I’ve had in years.

Gail P. – Feb 04, 2021
I spent 3 1/2 years going to chiropractors therapy from other back doctors and was still in a lot of pain. My mom said to go to her doctor as for years she was the same way and was pain-free after. I took her advice and she was right the doctor was wonderful after all this time I have absolutely zero pain it’s been one months now and it totally changed my whole attitude. These guys are a class act as I have now referred them to two of my friends and would refer them to anybody else.

I have been dealing with several bulging discs for years! I went through therapy, went to a chiro and nothing seemed to work. I was then referred to Dr. El-Baghdadi, and I cannot tell you how happy I am. I had an injection and I feel amazing! No more pain and I can finally workout again. I regret not doing this earlier as the results are incredible!
