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.

Provider prepared me for what to expect at different times during test and assured my comfort as best possible.. He also answered all my questions in a patient pleasant manner.
December 12, 2018
The hospital is beautiful and CLEAN. Staff are kind and helpful. Overall services are excellent. Doctor's are busy and talk to their laptops and tablets more than us. Just a fact, unfortunately.
December 03, 2018
efficient and friendly now lets see bout the procedure
November 28, 2018
Good experience
October 29, 2018
Location for this provider is excellent. Wait time is common, but they are using update to date technology to check you in.
October 25, 2018
Dr. Hafezi and staff are courteous, efficient and have great listening abilities!
October 25, 2018
I think you should stop talking when a patient is talking let them finish with they have to say stop being so condescending, and definitely don't tell them that basically they wanna keep their numbers down in the pain clinic so the government will stay out of there charts that's exactly what I was told and I think someone should call me on that because I was told that they would prefer to not raise the patient's pain medication even though the law states you have to try it doesn't state you have to keep it there it states you have to try to reduce the medication but I was told this group of doctors have decided that they would rather pick a number that they think patience should stay yet and that's all they can have no matter how bad their pain is because they don't want their books audited that's exactly what I was told and if you call me I'll tell you that !! I could never finish his sentence because he continued to talk over me I was never examined by him he came in he said a few things as I started to speak he interrupted me and continued to talk over me he's rude he's condescending and he's extremely condescending a field to women and I think all the men doctors are in the office I think you need a few female doctors in there!!
October 24, 2018
very good doctor,
October 17, 2018
He explained all that he was going to be testing for. Was efficient and quick and was professional.
October 12, 2018
The doctor did a great job on my procedure.
October 11, 2018
Poor bedside manners. It seem as though that he didn't really care about my chronic pain. He made a comment like if you already suffered the pain for a few months you take for another month or so until we get my MRI procedure done. I'm not a fan of this physician.
October 11, 2018
I will tell them how caring the staff made me feel. How the Dr. listened to me and made me feel that I wasn't the only person with my concerns. He also told me that at my age (67) I shouldn't expect to do what I did in my twenties. This was good to hear. Just take one task at a time.
October 10, 2018
Staff wonderful and so was my doctor. Explained my condition so I could understand what was going on with my body.
October 08, 2018
Horrible, insensitive and would never recommend to family and friends. All he cares about is prescribing pain killers not finding other solutions.
October 08, 2018
Dr took the time needed to listen to what I had to say.
October 04, 2018
Everyone in the same day surgery are amazing. Kind and helpful. This is my third time having a procedure done there and I always leave feeling pleased with the entire staff, starting with the front desk.
October 04, 2018
The doctor was wonderful and very professional. I'm very happy to have him in charge of my physical issues. He is terrific.
October 04, 2018
I'm sure he's a great doctor but he needs to listen more to the patient.
October 03, 2018
He spent a lot of time with me, answered all of my questions, and came up with a treatment plan that I approved of.
September 06, 2018
I've been seeing Dr. Hafezi for several years and would recommend him to family and friends highly. His assistant Shiranda is terrific also and the two make a wonderful team.

July 24, 2018
I just met Dr. Hafezi, maybe on my next appointment I may be able to answer this question.
July 23, 2018
Dr Hafezi is a nice guy, but the wait times are painful.
July 02, 2018
Find a different doctor if u work and can’t meet there last appt. at 3:15pm. They will try and push u to the PA (physician assistant). When ur copay is 50 dollars I don’t think u would want to see the physician assistant.
June 25, 2018
I appreciated that he gave me a complete understanding of my condition and options. Although the wait was long, the service was excellent.
June 12, 2018
This was an excellent experience. A Resident was shadowing Dr. Hafezi the day of my appointment. It is terrific to see instruction, explanation, and mentoring shared with the new Doctors coming in. Dr. Hafezi insured he completed all testing which had been requested on the referral. He was professional, appropriately welcoming and friendly to me. I could not have asked for a better experience or treatment.
June 05, 2018
Not a good experience .

Dr Hafezi was very kind and supportive. He answered all my questions and showed compassion for my mother's condition. She is a kind soul and we are very grateful for his help.
April 26, 2018
I have already recommended him to my friends. The most important thing is that he LISTENS. He understands my pain, knows about my previous problems and makes recommendations to treat my condition. He answers all questions in ways that are understandable.What more can I say.
