Dr Zaki Anwar is a knowledgeable doctor, and knows how to satisfy the client, 1st doze of stem cell’s gave me comfortable feeling. 2nd doze created discomfort with heat flashes in my chest , probably this was because of very fast flow of iv. 3rd doze went fine & good feeling, later on. As the results of infusion of stem cells will be visible after six months, so its too early to comment. As i am a Parkinsans patient , so my actual statement regarding these stem cells results can be shared after couple of months As i also added vitamins doze in the iv , the immediate positive effect of these vitamins was visible in form of energetic feeling. Rest all is ok Take care Major Anwar ul haq

Dr Anwar has been quite attentive, and, given the complex nature of my condition/multiple areas of damage or deterioration, has provided me with options otherwise unknown to me. Thank you

When I began seeing Dr. Anwar, he was conservative and cautious in his approach to my joint condition and needs. Over time, he increased levels of intervention and treatment, which has resulted in greatly improved physical functioning for me. This is not a "one and done" process, but an ongoing plan of treatment that builds over time. I am so grateful for the significantly improved mobility and decreased pain that I now experience. Five stars for this doctor and his caring, targeted approach.

The doc and I work pretty well together. He's always serious about making me as comfortable with my pain as possible. He's always willing to offer or look into new procedures or options to help me deal with everything that I've got going on. And I have quite a bit going on. He's also a pretty nice guy.

I have been doing prp injections with Dr.Anwar for a year now and have had great results. Prior to my prp injections I have had several shoulder surgerys and still continued with extreme stiffness in the shoulders. The PRP injections stopped all the stiffness in the shoulders and I now have full mobility inboth shoulders. I would highly recommend Dr. Anwar for any joint issues.f s
