Dr. Ghauri and his team have been working with me and my chronic health issues for over 4 years and I have never had a bad experience with them. Dr. Ghauri is kind and listens well. His team is considerate of me and my time. The practice manager is always making sure I am taken care of and that prior authorizations are completed in a timely manner. There are procedures that are done in office, under sedation, which is extremely convenient. I sincerely appreciate and recommend this practice to anyone with chronic pain and/or spine issues.

Have had great experiences with Dr.Guari and staff. They have helped me gain so much relief from the pain I was experiencing. Had the greatest relief with my Abbott pain stimulator implant which they helped me get approved. This is the place to go if you are looking for relief from chronic back pain.

I explained my worries to Dr. Ghauri, who listened attentively. He thoroughly examined me and put me at ease. Because it was my first appointment, I was in physical discomfort, but as I left his office, I felt calm.
