I have run 9 marathons and have periodic knee issues as I had a torn meniscus back in 2012 and some arthritis. Dr. Anwar has kept me going as I continue to run 45-50 miles a week and currently training for another marathon. I also had bad tennis elbow a couple years back that was bothering me for more than 6 months until I got a couple PRP shots and have not had a problem since. Its been great. I highly recommend Dr. Anwar if you have any pain issues.

Dr. Anwar always takes time to listen to my concerns and to talk through options. When I have had increased pain, he has always been able to get me in for injections the next week. He offers many options for pain management that do not include opiates. I suffered on opiates for years and he was the first Doctor to offer me something new without opiates.

I have been with Dr.Anwar for over 10+ years...I travel about 90+ miles to see him. He and his staff are professional, efficient, knowledgable yet warm and caring. I have tried to find a closer pain specialist but I am usually questioned why I really want another Dr. or they have no desire to deal with the medication I am on. Dr. combines meds, procedures, and various other techniques to help achieve a life worth living when you desperately want to give up...They are Gods just GREAT human beings.

I no longer have the weather forecasting knee! My knee would accurately forecast the changes in temperature, would ache when it was going to snow or rain, but no more!!!! This was the knee that was replaced! But I still had so much pain outside the joint after it was replaced, and physical therapy did not help! Thank God for Dr. Anwar! Now I have lasting relief--no more drugs!!!!!!
