I had been seeing a different provider but it didn't seem to be getting better Dr Azahr it seems has more knpwledge and I would like to make him my primary care physicianMar 17 2016
He listened to me.Mar 4 2016
We are at a point where I just have to deal with it. My back problems go WAY back and I have seen the pain management clinic, done injections which Dr. Ragenathan who said he has done all he could do outside of just managing the pain with medication. The type of outside work I do, working with horses, lifting hay bails and feed he said was aggravating it and I moved around too much for injections to work/settle. I also did a radio frequency ablation which did not work either. The pain radiates down my leg (SI joint) and instead of being on Norcos I wanted to be on something Non-narcotic (at the time tramadol was not listed as a narcotic) but was a lot LESS stronger than Vicuprofens. I had to take more of the tramadol to alleviate the pain but I am fine with that. Dr. Azhar has NEVER made me feel bad (like some doctors do when having to take pain medication) I chose to just continue to see Dr. Azhar for the medication due to the fact that it was non-narcotic and to keep the cost down on my insurance as well as the HUGE wait times I had to endure in the pain management clinic. I also see Dr. Azhar for all my well women's exams and everything else so it just made sense to see him for the continuum of care for my back issues.Feb 12 2016
I have a good relationship with Dr. Azhar and trust him.Feb 4 2016
