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.

He didn't take enough time to access me or get to know my problem. Know I'm the one suffering, it was bad enough I didn't rest enough before know I rest even less because don't have enough medication.
January 16, 2018
How well things went
January 09, 2018
Read the medical history and focus on the patient, you see several patients in one day, that is the field you chose to work on. It was a one time experience with you, and not sure you really cared or focused on MY health issues.
January 08, 2018
Visit was brief and fairly quick. Had to wait weeks for this, my only concern.
December 20, 2017
This is a doctor who is pleasant to talk to and will answer all your questions.
December 14, 2017
He was great easy to understand friendly and listened
December 11, 2017
Dr is honest and sincere thinks of the patients needs and not his paycheck. If your insurance company will pay for PIH Services it's to your advantage to switch over to PIH WHITTIER Not Downey facility....
December 07, 2017
I feel the doctor has a good handle on my problem. I can only hope that his strategy works for me.
November 20, 2017

He is a great Dr, highly recommended, I've never been to a pain management specialist before he made my experience wonderful, i was happy to have him as a doctor.
October 11, 2017
The overall experience with this provider was positive. I like being able to check-in on-line. Also no waiting or additional paperwork was needed once I arrived. The provider was able to explain clearly the issue discovered.
October 04, 2017
The doctor was in a hurry. Don't bother.
September 27, 2017
Dr and staff speak clear and understandable english and are very courteous
September 26, 2017
It took 3 weeks to get a nerve conduction study
September 22, 2017
Yes of course
September 22, 2017
Provider is excellent. I had a sense Dr. Hafezi was also very good but quick and only gave me basic info. My issue is with the nurses with family members in the waiting area. I was kept longer than usual because my BP was too high. My cousin was waiting and waiting and no one was giving her any info on me and they did not attempt to check my status for her. It was very traumatic for her. She was very upset not knowing anything. Nor would they let her go back and check. Other patients had family members there afterwards.
September 14, 2017
He is an understanding and knowledgeable professional.
September 13, 2017
Have seen him on and off for 10 years to help keep my pain management under control. Recently went to two other doctors closer to my home but ended up going back to him and PIH Whittier where I know my life is in good hands
September 12, 2017
If you are suffering pain by all means see Dr Hafezi.
September 11, 2017

August 01, 2017
Very easy to talk to. Explained everything in a manner that as easily understood. Very professional yet friendly.
July 20, 2017
He is a friendly, professional doctor, who appears to know his business well. I will see him again in just a few days, as he and I are both interested in how well this procedure works on me.
July 18, 2017
He took time to answer my questions, and explained my problem clearly.
July 17, 2017
Dr. Hafezi was very clear and explained lots of information I didn't know about the medical processes I wasn't aware of and he was very kind. Definitely not a push you out the door doctor.
July 17, 2017
He is definitely a great doctor
July 11, 2017
Doctor was empathetic and listened carefully. He explained options for treatment clearly and understandably. Allow plenty of time for your appointment as we were 45 min after appointment time before we were called in. It was worth the wait.
July 07, 2017
That if they need a caring doctor and a competent doctor he is the one.
June 30, 2017

Doctor was easy to communicate with and explained issues clearly.
June 19, 2017
Good Doctor!
June 15, 2017
I have been a patient of Dr. Hafezi for at least 10 years. Dr. Hafezi understand my medical needs and has always taken very good care of my medical concerns. He is the reason I can still walk after having cerbical and lumbar spine surgeries. I have great confidence in him and his medical treatments he has planned out for me through the years. Especially, knowing that I do not like to take pain medications. He had been a Godsend.
May 26, 2017
He seemed in a hurry and just stopped by to mark the injection site. No questions asked.
May 25, 2017
Great doctor and staff....
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.
May 04, 2017
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).
April 25, 2017
PIH is beneficial but their phone system, even making an appointment is the worst. Don't think you're going to talk to the actual physician.
April 24, 2017
Provider did not seem to want to do anything other than cortisol shots.
April 21, 2017
He cares
April 04, 2017
He was very patient and explained all questions and concerns I had for upcoming procudure
April 03, 2017
March 31, 2017
Very nice and concerning docter
March 30, 2017
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 ????????????????????
March 29, 2017
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.
