I'm a 66 year old woman who has suffered with chronic pain for 23 years. I had to go to Dr. K for pain meds after my p.c. dr, could no longer write them. She decided I had to have a urine test before She would write a new script. I called her office for 2 weeks to get results and was finally told by her asst. that I was dismissed as a patient and would get no more scripts from them. Dr. K wouldn't even discuss it with me!! I Have been in torture for 2 months and may miss my son's wedding.

Two visits for my wife that experiences 24/7 pain from a stroke. Found an almost total lack of communication on her part.

After wasting two years at a pain management facility I was on the verge of giving up. My wife did a little pleading with our insurance we we able to see Dr. Karimian. Just talking to her I had hope again. One MRI and two weeks later I have a plan to reduce my pain versus just the typical drug route. I know I still have a long road but am happy she is riding shotgun. She very well may have saved my life!
