Kept insisting my 2+ years of tailbone pain was rectum pain due to repeated rectal penetration. I said I'd never done that even once, he said then it was probably due to an advanced HPV infection which I told him was also unlikely since I haven't had any kind of sex in over 20 years. My MRI report clearly said my pain was due to a uterine fibroid. He wrote in my records that I was "hesitant to admit engaging in rectal sex." Wish you could sue a doctor for engaging in creative writing.

Dr Abbassi is Awesome. He gave me my mom back. She was in so much pain . He has great bedside manner and is kind and really explains in a way we could understand. He himself called my mom the next day to see how she was feeling. All in all a great experience. I would totally recommend him to anyone with back pain issues. Thank you so much Dr Abbassi .

Dr Abbassi seemed to want to help but offered no viable options. I was told to not even make an appointment if not willing to have an injection. So I hesitated but agreed. Then dismisses facet arthrosis as a potential cause of my awful back pain. No epidural injection as offered. He blamed my pain on the very medication that kills it and dismissed me.

Dr Abbassi is the consummate professional. When you see him he treats you as if you were the only patient he is seeing that day. It is rare to find such an excellent diagnostician who also has a sense of compassion. A healer not just a practitioner.

Dr Abbassi is awesome!! He always personally calls after every procedure. He is down to earth, honest and always does his best. He has cured my back pain completely and I will keep coming back to him as long as he is in Arcata. I can't recommend him enough, he saved my quality of life.
