Patient Comments (10)
He is so unbelievably personable and intelligent! He cares about his patients and his enthusiasm is contagious. Its rare for your appointments to run late and his nurses are amazing. The NP named Sarah is so compassionate! I cant say enough good things about this office!

Dr. Bajwa treated my cluster headaches from 2002 to 2013, when we left Boston. Before I came under Dr. Bajwa's care, my cluster headaches were debilitating enough to jeopardize my commitments to my job and family. Dr. Bajwa patiently worked with me regularly to adjust my treatments to a) prevent my headaches and b) manage the acute incidents. As a result of his efforts, the frequency of my cluster headaches is now quite low, and I am able to manage the occasional outbreaks without any narcotics!

I have been a migraine sufferer since I was a child. Nothing seemed to help until I found Dr. Bajwa! He worked with me until we found the right combination of drug therapy and Botox. Now my migraines are few and far between (when I did have them several times per month). Because of him, I am able to attend college with little worries about my condition getting in the way of my life!

Dr Bajwa is a great Dr. He takes the time to explain what he is doing and gives lots of options for treatment. He is always willing to answer questions and his Nursing Staff and MA's are a pleasure to work with.

Dr.Bajwa is honestly the best. Being a migraine sufferer I never thought I would see the end and then I met Dr. Bajwa ... Total life changer and his staff is all very nice and fun to be around. They make you feel at home even in uncomfortable situations. I couldn't recommend Dr.Bajwa or Boston PainCare enough!! 5 out of 5 stars!!

Dr. Bajwa not only cares but takes the time to explain each and every aspect of my care. I would recommend Dr. Bajwa to anyone and everyone. Being a daily migraine sufferer I thought this would never end... and then I found The real Dr. B. Come see this guy for migrane relief. I finally have my life back and you should too!!

My experience with Dr. Bajwa was amazing. Boston Pain Care is an amazing place with amazing staff. If you have headaches come to this guy!

I suffered with severe migraines for a number of years, I went to several facilities and headache specialists, all with no help. Finally, my friend, recommended Dr. Zahid Bajwa. I reluctantly went, seeing as no other physician had been able to help with my migraine pain, until now. Dr. Bajwa is wonderful, his office staff, and clinic are pleasant and clean. I have been a patient of Dr. Bajwa's for 2 years, and my migraine pain is finally under control. I can not thank this kind doctor enough. :)
New York, NY |
I used to like Dr. Bajwa however the quality of his medical care has eroded steadily since he joined Boston Pain Care Center. He no longer listens to patients and has not updated his treatment options in keeping with his peers. Very disappointing!
