I have been a patient of Dr Karim for over 8 yes she is very kind and understanding, and listens to me as a patient. She works with you so that you can help with your care. I am a recovering addict and she has listened to me and understanding that even though I am in a lot of pain my recovery comes first and has been able to help with my pain relief without being on addictive meds. So if you want a Dr who listens to YOU and helps you then you need to go see her you won't regret.

My first visit to Dr. Shahnaz Karim was 2010. She is a wonderful doctor with a charming bed-side manner, caring for her patients and encouraging each one to work hard at recovery. Dr. Karim spends time listening, never rushes, and is very respectful. The office is quite, professional, clean, and the staff is extremely polite. Dr. Karim is a no-nonsense, rule-oriented professional who properly addresses patients pain and rehabilitation. I have 7 years of astonishing results and more to come.

in Houston, TX |
Been seeing her 8 years and not only did she provide me with excellent care via medicine, injections, topicals and even cupping treatment; but she has personally mentored and counseled me regarding employment, school, and personal fitness. Every time I visit the office weather it is for a refill or injection or both she makes sure I do not leave without a prayer and motivation as well. She's written countless letters for me and is the best pain doctor locally. Only down side is the wait time.
