I have been seeing Dr.Ghorbani and his physician assistants and I couldn't be any happier with my experience with the practice as a whole. The office staff goes above and beyond for their patients. Would highly recommend APMI.

Positive experience until I tried to schedule an appointment for a second injection and was told that the provider did not indicate that this was my next step. They wanted me to come back in the office to do what I had already done with the provider. Called staff and did did not receive a call back. Called again and that's when it was obvious that what I was verbally told was not what the provider had written. Very frustrating interaction which should have been simple process.

What I like best about APMI is that it offers a full range of services - injections, physical therapy, orthopedic doctors, and prescriptions (as needed). They are focused on providing options for reducing pain and being able to participate fully in life. The staff is friendly, professional, concerned and expert. The physical therapy area is new and fully equipped with a wide range of options. Unlike other PT places I've been to, APMI PT sessions usually have only a few clients at a time and I get lots of one on one time with the therapist. The epidural injections are done with the option to put the patient under during the procedure. This makes the experience a pleasure instead of one that I would dread because of the pain. Highly recommended!
