Amazing doctor
He is very nice and empathetic to your pain. He takes me out of most of my pain in one visit. I don't have to rely on drugs that most doctors try to push on you and he listens to his patients. Wouldn't want to go to anyone else.

Very thankful for Dr. Amireh
I have medium to severe sciatica from bulging discs and degenerative discs and I went to this doctor to inquire about a spine injection. He pinpointed exactly where my problem was by asking me a series of questions and reviewing the MRI report. He explained that he would start in the location he believed my problem to be and that it would also be diagnostic as he would know more after the injection where my problem was by the result. Then I could have subsequent injections as needed. I had the injection and it went exactly as he described. It took approximately 24 hours to feel a great degree of improvement; my pain was approximately 25 to 30% improved. He listened, he was kind, he explained thoroughly. He did exactly what he said he would do and it worked like he said it would work. I will return and I will get treatment from my husband next who has the same condition. Thankful that I found him, and I highly recommend him

Dr Amireh is a kind and caring Doctor. If it weren’t for him I wouldn’t be enjoying my life as I am now. I would be in constant pain and probably unable to function. He saved my life. He found my pain problem and sent me to a surgeon to have it repaired. After surgery I still had pain issues and nerve damage in my back and feet. Dr Amireh continued to treat me. He installed a spinal stimulation device that helps with the pain in my back and feet and he gave me injections that help me for at least 4 months at a time. I wouldn’t be walking if it weren’t for Dr Amireh because the pain would overwhelming. He is a great Doctor and I highly recommend him.

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
