Dr. Hafezi, pain management and rehabilitation physician, chose to go into his area of medicine so he could make a meaningful difference in the lives of patients. Dr. Hafezi says the natural complement between physician medicine and pain management lets him establish treatment plans “not just to address patient symptoms, but to help them be more active, independent and productive. I like it when I can help my patients have a better quality of life,” he explains.

Patient Reviews

May 11, 2017
The office staff recognized and thanked me for my service in law enforcement. I recently retired and you don't get compliments like that very often. It was much appreciated. Nurses and doctors helped me many times during my 37 year career and I was able to let them know they are appreciated, too.

I would recommend this provider.
May 02, 2017
He helps those with sore aches and pains by examination and proceeds if granted, to give shots to deaden pain to help with rejuvenation of the painful area(s).

Very nice and concerning docter

PIH has the best staff starting with accommodating us with an appointment, very little wait time to see your doctor, and the doctor, in my case, Dr. Hafezi, giving you his full attention to detail and providing the medical procedures you need to alleviate your pain. I give PIH 10 Stars ????????????????????

I feel he's doing what he can to help me, but maybe he could try and find more options for my pain management. I'm still in pain and I know he's trying to help me, but I'm frustrated. Maybe call in another doctor for another opinion or something.

Very good , took time to explain all of my problems
June 20, 2016
This doctor seems to be competent and shows some empathy to the patient's nervousness. I was surprised when asked if I wanted to have the procedure. All I could think of was my limited knowledge would not make me qualified to know if it was the best option.
June 15, 2016
It took too long to ge an appt when I'm in pain. Over two months, when I had this test on the other wrist, so I know the problem is the thumb joint. Now I still have to wait for joint replacement like I had on the other thumb.
