ABSOLUTE BEST
I’ve been suffering with chronic back pain for years. Dr.Said has made me better. My condition is degenerative, but yet I’m feeling much better than I have in years. He is brilliant; incredibly knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and genuinely concerned. He takes time to explain things in a way in which I can understand. Every. Time. He has laid out his treatment plan for me clearly and concisely, and answers all my questions. He continues to address in detail all of my concerns. There are good doctors, and there are great doctors. Dr. Said is a great doctor.

Not individualized pain care.
Pain is real! But if you have it,he seems to push injections rather than what worked for me. Asking what has worked for me thus far & consider that. Not that type of Dr at all. Made me feel like alot of CP community feels,I think, be someone else's problem. Kept cutting me off, and gave me misinformation. I think as long as he can do procedures on you,he may be the Dr for you. That's no different than what all these pain Dr are shoving down the CP community's throat. I am different & I felt like since I am different, I didn't deserve individualized treatment.

Looking for the best? Stop here!
Dr. Said is an amazing, caring and top notch Doctor. I left a doctor from a large facility as I could never get in for an appointment or my doctor hardly ever showed. Dr. Said's office got me in right away, he talked to me, gave me information, options, and he was there for me. I appreciate his honestly and sincerity .

Dr. Said at Ascend Pain and Wellness is incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and dedicated to his patients. He treated my father-in-law as a second opinion for unresolved pain issues after oral surgery for cancer. Dr. Said reviewed his chart thoroughly before our meeting, and had even consulted outside specialists to make sure he had all the options to present. I am also a physician, and impressed with his abilities and dedication to his patients.

My husband has suffered with chronic back pain for years and Dr. Said has been terrific. He explained several options and started with the least invasive. My husband is now oxycodone-free and is enjoying a life with very little back pain. We are most pleased with our experience with Dr. Said and with the entire Premier Pain support team.

Medical assistant staff was amazing, they took my stress level down to zero. They are so professional yet they are funny and put me at ease. Victor the paramedic, Natalia was the assistant in the procedure , Diana was wonderful as well and Erin took amazing care of me in recovery. I want to assure all future patients you will be in the best hands ever! Dr. Said of course had a hand in this and I didn't feel a thing. I am looking forward to future appointments !
