Agree miracle worker! From the very 1st appointment I new I was in the right place with the right doctor. Talked to me honestly And the only promise he made was to do his best to help me have less pain. I trusted him enough to inject me in my back and my neck. Both help immensely! I would recommend him highly!

I have been with Dr Arif for approximately 1 year. Understands my chronic pain. I have had a neck epidural as well as my back. I intend to stay with Dr Arif for the duration of my medical issues. Very open to my opinions as well as my rheumatologist’s and my ortho. They all work together for me.
