I am so thankful for Dr. Nomen Azeem and his staff at Florida Spine and Pain Specialists. I had the Veriflex procedure for spinal stenosis. I can stand straight and walk or bend without pain. Dr. Azeem is professional and personable. Thank you FSPS for helping me to live a much easier and fuller life!

VERY happy and satisfied with the care and treatment provided by Dr. Azeem and his staff. Have had lumbar spine issues since my 2nd spine operation in 2012. Got to the point a year ago where I was in constant pain and unable to walk any distance. Dr. Azeem reviewed MRI done before 1st visit with him, and discussed all the problem areas during our 1st meeting. Then, discussed a planned sequence of procedures, and explained risk/benefit around each. I am now 90% (or so) PAIN-FREE! If problems return, I will not hesitate to have Dr. Azeem work on resolving them.

Dr. Azeem is a great doctor. He knows what he is doing. I was going to universal spine and joint prior to Dr. Azeem and I was miserable. They didn't care about my pain and just gave me medication. Dr. Azeem actually listens and takes the time to fix you. Highly Recommend!

Dr. Azeem is a wonderful doctor that takes the time to Listen to each patient and help them. I am able to do the things I thought I would never do again. I went to Disney with my grandchildren and was able to keep up the entire time. Dr. Azeem did a RFA on me and it has changed my life. The staff and the office are amazing. I always feel welcome and heard. They all go out of their way to help you. I especially like Rida. She always brings me waters after procedures and makes me laugh. I recommend Dr. Azeem to anyone in pain. He is a Saint. He saved me from my pain. I have been to countless doctors and they never listen. They always just give medication. They never fix anything. Dr. Azeem fixes you. I wish I would have gone sooner. Don’t wait because you will not find a more Caring, competent, smart or able physician. He knows what he is doing and he does it very well. Everyone I know that has gone to him adore him. Bless him for giving me a second chance.

Worst doctor I have ever been to. My pain is worse than ever. After being told they would accept Medicare assignment, I am now being billed for many hundreds of dollars for services I can't pay. He performed painful procedures with no anesthesia, no empathy for my pain. Sent me for an MRI which he apparently never reviewed, as he told me he was unable to "document my pain" , despite 12 years' of history of medication. My primary physician took one look at the MRI and immediately wrote a prescription for narcotics. It also helps the migraines caused by Dr Azeem's procedures. I was abruptly discharged when I got pneumonia from the physical therapy practice he referred me to, which had me evaluated by an obviously sick employee and I complained. The entire experience was a nightmare.

My wife was have extreme back pain and was unable to get relief thru many doctors and pt, she was finally referred to dr azeem. We were impressed with his concerns for the patient and their feelings. He was able to diagnose the condition and provide the proper procedure to relieve the pain, and after two separate procedures six months apart she is now 100% pain free. We would recommend him to anyone who is having back problems that no one else has been able to cure.

Loved Dr. Azeem. He spoke to me about my issues and explained the various options for me. I have gotten injections from Florida Pain Medicine and got the same one from Dr. Azeem and it worked SIGNIFICANTLY better. He cares about his patients and not just about the money they will bring in. Dr. Azeem told me that the best case is he never sees me again because I am pain free! The office is beautiful and the Staff is always friendly. I recommend Dr. Azeem to everyone I meet with any type of pain!

Dr. Azeem is great. He spoke with me about my issues and the various options I had. We decided on a RFA and I feel fantastic. I walked out knowledgeable about my pain because he explained everything and answered all my questions. I recommend him to everyone. The office is nice and the staff is also very nice. If your in pain, Dr. Azeem is the ONLY choice.

I walked into this office angry yesterday and walked out feeling incredible. Rida is a absolute joy. I have never felt so understood and listened to about my concerns. I saw Dr. Azeem a few months ago but I am going back up north and needed some information. Rida was helpful and took the time to listen to me about my pain and my frustration. I would recommend this office because the doctor is good and Rida makes you feel like a person not a number

Dr Azeem’s treatment made 100% improvement in my life. Dr Azeem is sincere, thorough, honest; patient with me, 84 years old. Personally reviewed MRI, X-ray tests. Recommended conservative treatment before surgical intervention. Highly recommend Dr Azeem.

Dr. Azeem ended my husbands 12 weeks of sciatica pain with his Superion implant surgery. We hand out the Superion leaflets to everyone that talks with us about their back pain. We highly recommend Dr. Azeem.

Great doctor. Great staff. Great office. The man is a outside of the box thinker. He did one exam and diagnosed me on Wednesday and I was back Monday for my injection. The very next day I was walking longer then I have. I’m still pain free. I cannot recommend Dr. Azeem enough. Even in the waiting room the other patients were telling me how great he is and I agree. He takes the time to make sure you understand everything. And he genuinely cares for you. The only regret is I didn’t go sooner.

The office is always clean and nice. The staff is great. Rita is a joy and cracks me up every time, Angie is always smiling, and Jade is always very helpful. Dr. Azeem is by far the best doctor I have seen for my pain. He listened and actually looked me in the eye when speaking to me. I have been to two pain providers in Brandon and Tampa and Dr. Azeem got me results they could not. When your really in pain a little wait is worth it if the dr finally gets you results. For that, I will wait 1 hr

Incredible doctor that actually treats you instead of pumping you full of drugs. I can only assume the bad reviews on here are people that didn’t like the fact that they couldn’t get their fix at his office. Honestly my pain is 100% gone and I have been in pain for 6 years. Do yourself a favor and go to him Yes there is a wait. I’ve never been to a doc that didn’t have a wait, the difference is he takes the time to REALLY LISTEN to every patient. I was iffy because of the reviews, so glad I went

This Doctor changed my life. I have been dealing with pain in my lower back for almost a decade. A fusion, numerous injections, and pain meds were not helping at all. I had given up. A neighbor raved about Dr. Azeem and I thought I would try again. ONE injection later and I am almost completely pain free. I read the “Barbados” review and laughed. I have had doctors from Harvard and Hopkins that did NOTHING for me. Shame on that person for complaining about wait. He takes time with each patient!

Dr. Azeem is a very caring doctor. He actually listens to the patient. Everyone else treated me like I was drug seeking and Dr. Azeem treated me with a injection and I am 90% pain free! I love his office. It is very festive and always a joy to be on. Angie at the front desk is so sweet and helpful and Rida the office manager is always ready to help. I called her with a issue from my previous doctor and she took care of it for me and was very kind. I would recommend this office to everyone!

First and last visit. Referred by Florida Orthopedic Institute. I should have looked at Health Grades. I was 20 minutes early to appt. 45 minutes after my appt time brought to a room. 30 minutes more to see the doctor. Is this guy is on Barbados time (Where went to school)? No real apologies made, but offered referral to elsewhere. He tried to turn it around on me, saying I should expect to wait. Not my other doctors. Only stayed to get MRI script. Taking the results to higher rated provider.
