What People Say About Dr. Morteza Shamsnia, MD

Try 0. I can’t believe the person that was 29 and he wouldn’t give them pain meds. He practicially asked me what I wanted. I was 36 & was in a wreck. Tried to get me to say things hurt that didn’t & Rx me 150 Lortab/month for what we thought was whiplash but I found out after seeking a new dr I had a brain condition & have had 3 brain procedures and a hemorrhage and I don’t even take that much pain meds now. The wait is as horrible as he was. So glad I found a great Dr on Northshore he was BAD!

He was good w testing thoroughly due to 29 years old he did not believe in writing any pain med even though he Put me through multiple extremely rigorous testing,bc he thought he would show me nothing was wrong or it was bearable,so he did every test he could An each 1 showed just how bad I really was but worst which I understand he don't want to youth hooked on pain meds however,I didn't want to suffer with pain, so where is the balance,well to him I had to deal with it,bc I was 29 he judges
