I was troubled with back pain for some time - with much patience and understanding with my situation, Dr. Mahboobi zeroed in my pain threshold on my first visit. I have been pain free since that visit. Thank you Dr. Mahboobi !

I was referred to Dr Mahboobi by the PA at the Anderson Clinic for lower back pain. It was suggested I go through a series of shots to avoid surgery. I had had these shots over a year ago by another practitioner, she was in and out and the shots did nothing for me. When I say in and out I mean it seemed like the proceedure was simply to dispense some product into my back and charge my insurance. My experience with Dr Mahboobi was completely different. He explained to me what he was going to

Dr. Mahboobi and his technician, Amy, are the most caring, efficient and effective pain management team I have encountered in my years as an RN and most recently as a patient. They are truly patient oriented and compassionate while maintaining a highly professional demeanor. I trust this team to address and resolve my pain issues. Most sincerely, Benita Bavaria

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Dr. Mahboobi and his office staff. Specifically, Amy! They listened very well and provided various options to assist with getting me some relief from radiating pain I was experiencing on both sides of my legs. After 2 years I'm very optimistic about my quality of life. It's only been a few hours since my first injection but again, I'm very optimistic.

My primary care doctor referred me to Dr. Mahboobi when she decided not to manage chronic opioid patients. I've got chronic back and hip/le pain, am in a wheelchair, and am a palliative care patient. He comes in, shakes my hand, and says, "So, you've been in pain 20 years and have arrived at an opioid dose that's much too high. The deal is, if I am your doctor, you will taper both your long-acting and immediate release opioids in half. And I am worried that you are 0.5 mg of Atavan." I said no.

I will recommend Dr. Mahboobi to anyone with neck, shoulder or back related pain problems. He changed my life for the better and I am forever grateful for his professionalism.

I have had back pain for the last 5 years and have been to many doctors who haven't been able to help. I first went to see Dr.Mahboobi in the shirlington office. His staff there was very rude and incompetent. Dr.Mahboobi on the other hand was gracious, understanding and knowledgeable. He informed me that he also worked in the Mount Vernon office, which is where I have been seeing him since. The staff there is courteous, friendly and knowledgeable about insurances. I would not recommend elsewhere

He is the doctor that I can trust. He was very friendly, take time to listen and explain everything and never been in rush for injection. My low back pain goes away in couple of days and I am so happy with the result. His staff are also very friendly and always in good mood.

Very friendly and humble. He helped me with my lower back pain and leg pain. I had previous injections at another clinic which were painful and I felt rushed. But with Dr. Mahboobi he takes his time and I can feel the difference with the injections. His staff also loves him which makes it a pleas to office to visit

I recently saw Dr. Mahboobi and couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome of my care. During the first visit he examined me and instead of going in blindly to do an injection, he sent me to radiology for an MRI an x-ray. His staff called me almost immediately after having the study done and put me on the his schedule for a steroid injection which helped tremendously! I have one more injection to do and will hopefully only see him for maintenance. He and his staff are wonderful!

I suffer with lumbar disc degeneration and severe sciatic pain both down my Back & legs. The orthopedic dr. said there was nothing he could do and referred me to National Pain and Spine Centers where I started treatment with Dr. Mahboobi. He recommended steroid epidurals in my lower spine. I get the injections every six months, nearly 3 yrs now. I have the utmost respect for and trust in Dr. Mahboobi. The sciatic pain is virtually eliminated. Thank you for improving the quality of my life!
