He's not the type of doctor who will write a scrip just because of an issue , he throughly makes sure you indeed pain. He's one of those doctors that is interested in rehabilitation of core & strengtg trainer rather than just a pill or patch to resolve a problem as he looks for the long term use of medications and habit forming problems that are associated with medicine , he is a doctor that I trust and throughly believes in rehabilitation services over writing scripts, a U/a is preformed

I've been seeing Dr Wassef for a while now. He's one of the finest doctors I've had since trying to recover from multiple pain issues with a number of hip replacements and lower back problems. Thanks to him I'm able to do a lot of the things that I couldn't do before seeing him. I'm very thankful to him and he has been extremely helpful to me. I can't say enough positive things about him. Thank you Dr. Wassef.

I would not recommend him. I waited for almost 3 hours only to be seen for 5 minutes and have all of what I said completely disregarded.
