Make an Appointment


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.

I appreciated the Dr's honest opinion and actually listening to what I had to say.

The doctor in pain management seems like he is always in different mood I go see him he's happy sometimes he's is overwhelmed , I get feeling that he Is afraid to write meds for Meaning to do his job and manage pain . He is not in pain The patience are. He doesn't know what we feel. If you put a order they send it to the wrong pharmacy . Some of the medication are different brands and they will upset your stomach and he argues with me over that.

Well, my experience was very excellent because they treated me immediately and even a car sent me to another hospital that was there in La Paz and then they made the appointment for me immediately, that is also very much for me, thank you.

The reason I couldn't get an answer for an appointment is I don't have an appointment to go back to so that's why but it's 0. There was no appointment to go back to. You should have that answer in one of your on that question, because not everybody has to go back to an appointment again. Thank you.

the one reception when i arrived was rude regarding wearing a mask, including the way she spoke to the lady next to me. Dr Hafezi for second time was rushing me and didnt respond to my request. i aske if he could change my prescription renewal date a couple days early as i am going on vacation and his response was "it is already sent" even though i was stating my wishes while he was processing the prescription, yes im aware it is an opioid for pain, however i was not asking for week in advance just two days, and he blew me off like i did not matter!!!

My appt was at 10am. Called in at 10:20. Didn't get seen until 10:50. The line at the parking checkout line has been out of control. Takes too long to exit people are paying at the exit causing to much much.while others already have their tickets validated. .

I'm sorry to say I've dealt with Dr. Havasu over number here. He's not my favorite doctor, and he jumps to conclusions for sometimes. He seemed to think there's a health problem in my home, a safety problem, which is not the case. I don't appreciate sending somebody else. Double check on me. I will continue to see him as long as alright have to, but that was 1/2 too. Okay? Thank you. Thank you for calling. Bye. Bye.

I don't want that doctor anymore. He doesn't listen to you. He cuts you off. He's very rude. Please call me back, at area code [PHI removed], to provide another carrier. Thank you very much, cause I need a new doctor. Thank you.
