I had a terrible experience with Dr. Elbaridi. At first he was casual and nice, but after I had complications with a procedure with a .005% complication rate, things turned very sour. He was aggressive, didn't listen to me or any of the symptoms I was having, and incredibly unprofessional. Today, I'm in a large amount of discomfort due to this Doctor. I would highly suggest going to anybody else.

Dr Elbaridi has to be one of the most frustrating doctors I've had. He kept pushing for injections (which are experimental, expensive, and out of pocket) and wouldn't listen to me when I repeatedly told him they made me nervous and I would rather try other options first. At one point he put me on a LAUGHABLY low amount of gabapentin (300mg a day, not anywhere close to a dosage that will actually treat anything) for only a week and when I said I was still in pain, instead of raising the dose he again pushed me back towards ketamine injections. He is stubborn, does not listen, and is frustratingly hard to reach when you need to contact him. If you have any other option, do not go to Dr Elbaridi.

Having experienced pain on a daily basis since 2005 has not been easy. I shattered my femur and fractured my pelvis. Since going to Dr. Elbaridi, my pain has lessened and I'm a happy camper. I feel that Dr. Elbaridi truly cares about me and my pain. After receiving a hip injection the other day, I almost cried because I feel relief and thought about wearing heels to work!!!! Dr. Elbaridi has staff that mimic him. I'm so glad I was referred to him and would recommend him to anyone!!!!!
