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.

Many Doctors inherently are arrogant. Doc. Hafezi appears to part of that group. They know everything and we know nothing. They often seem uninterested in what we ask, answering questions while standing at the door trying to get out. This was what I experienced yesterday. I arrived 15 minutes early as instructed , did not fill out any forms and sat for more than 40 minutes waiting to be called. The Doc. , at one point, cut me off and said he had to leave all while standing at the door.
April 06, 2021
I did not visit Dr. Hafezi on this appointment. He called. I'm recovering from back surgery and cancer surgery on my back and I didn't want to go into the office again. So my son called know Dr. Hafezi for a long time and I get along with him just fight. Thank you.
