If you are shaking with trepidation and chronic pain as I was, take a leap of faith and contact Dr. Omar Syed at Canyon Pain and Spine in Glendale, AZ. The office is lovely, the front desk and assistants ( I love Cindy) are simply such caring people and Dr. Syed IS the epitome of a doctor I never knew existed!! He explains procedures so that we understand them, he is patient, takes his time and is oh so caring. He gives one the gift of "Hope" that he will help you without false expectations. I am a 77 year old woman who has been given hope and help and in return I give Dr. Syed my Trust ( which is not easy for me to do). I have not been wrong!! Df. Syed is an amazing Doctor and human being who truly cares for his patients.

Friendly staff and very helpful. Dr. Syed was great but the nerve block didn't give me as much relief as I thought it would. Will have to see what he thinks my next plan of action should be.

It was very good, since I was so nervous since I have never had the injection before yes I would recommend Dr Syed he explained everything to me, he was awesome, and I feel a lot better than before I got the injection.. Not 100% yet, but a lot better than before. Everyone there was very helpful and I thank everyone there for making my first experience a great one.

Dr. Syed is personable and straight-forward. Also, my experience getting a steroid injection in my back as quick, efficient, and comfortable as he said it would be. I couldn't recommend his help more wholeheartedly.

Outstanding communication skills and looks for long term solutions. Honest and forward leaning in terms of therapeutic and rehabilitation procedures. I appreciated his candor regarding the diagnosis and his conservative approach to potential invasive solutions, He is very much a realist and obviously creates a treatment plan that is results driven. Highly recommend.

My mom is a patient of Dr Omar Syed and we are so thankful. She's had to endure a number of hip surgeries over the last four years due to an infection. Dr Syed has been amazingly patient and kind. His previous years as an anesthesiologist along with his people skills make him, in my opinion, a bit of a unicorn in the medical world. He's smart and he's nice. It's also such a rarity to feel like a doctor is actually listening and also caring for you like he would his own family. My 83 year old parents leave his office feeling like someone cares for them and has a plan for her health. That is gold. They were referred by their primary care, Dr Eric Limkemann. He too, is a compassionate, caring and very wise doctor. We all say she now, finally, has the doctor dream team.

I had recently switched valley pain offices because the previous office had horrible communication. I could not be more pleased with this office and the communication. The office manger is on top of running this office. I highly recommend this office and couldn’t be happier with the choices to switch offices.
