David Hannah – Nov 22, 2019
Dr. Amireh was the first doctor to actually give answers and help with the CAUSE of the pain, not just push pills for symptoms. Absolute bullseye for diagnosing the problem. Had a great experience and it's a shame my PCP isn't like him! Irony of doctors in his field is the goal is not to need to see them.

Dealing with spinal stenosis, lower back arthritis & bursitis both hips is daily pain. He is compassionate, professional with a warm personality. He fully explained diagnosis, future treatment options & answered all questions. Gave bi-lateral epidural & I was walking upright next day! At Dr Amireh’s direction, staff called to check my post-procedure status. Dr Amireh helped tremendously with my pain management &, if needed, I will return. I heartedly recommend anyone dealing with pain to see him

Dr, Amireh deserves high praise for his incredible intellect,warmth and his amazing results in a very difficult specialty. Over 30 years of MS and as a R.N. he is a very rare doctor who is extremely dedicated and treats his patients with results, kindness and compassion. He is well respected in the nursing community. I have seen numerous pain specialist and always came away dissatisfied and felt dismissed, like I was a bother. I am grateful I found him and I know he will be there if I need him.

I suffered from excruciating neck pain for over a year. I felt hopeless as no amount of painkillers would help. My Dr. suggested pain management with Dr. Amireh. I was apprehensive at first but after my 2nd injection I am pain free! Dr. Amireh is the best! So kind and caring. It's been 40 days since my injection and I feel amazing-NO MORE PAIN

Karen B in Sanger, CA – Oct 21, 2017
I felt like I was giving vague ideas of my symptoms, but he knew exactly the problem. When I had the treatment, I was totally pain free by the next day. Three years ago I had a different problem, and that treatment was somewhat similar and it lasted 3. years. So, I feel this will be long lasting as well.

He is not only very knowledgeable in his fields of practice, but is very personable and speaks to you in lay terms so you can understand. The staff he hires is also very friendly and has very good follow thru. Jim Kuhtz

Grade: A++. Rasheed Amireh, #best Pain management MD. Two years ago i was vacationing in another country when someone ran a red light & totaled our car. I sustained back injury with debilitating pain. I was referred to Dr Amireh, best referral ever. He is extremely professional, personable, a great listener, he takes time to discuss options, and he seem to genuinely care about the wellbeing of his patients. Today I am 95-100% pain free. I would highly recommend Dr Amireh to family and friends.
