Dr. Alhamrawy was excellent. When seeking the help of a pain management doctor communication is key. He gave me more than enough time to discuss my history, concerns and a clear plan to move forward. I look forward to continuing treatmentwith him. I reccomend him to anyone looking for a great practice with a Doctor that listens to you!!

Dr. Alhamrawy was quick to see my dad on multiple occasions. He performed several injections, did a nerve test, and offered his expertise on how to prevent future pain. He did a great job as my dad’s back pain has subsided.

Hard to understand accent. Speaks very fast and does not spend enough time listening to patient concerns. For a physiatrist, I think its important for a Dr to spend time understanding what the patient is going through.

I have been seeing doctors for my entire life due to two painful birth defects. Dr. Al has been the most passionate, understanding, amazing doctor I have ever had. He truly cares about you and is there for you 24/7. Hisstaff is amazing and friendly, which is rare now a days. If you are in pain, he will do whatever it takes to help you day or night. They don't make many doctors like him anymore!

I went to visit Dr. Alhamrawy for issues with my thumb. I was seen very quickly. The doctor spent a lot of time with me, thoroughly looking at my issue and explaining everything clearly. I was impressed with how thorough theexam was. I also had concerns regarding my insurance and payments and both one of his office coordinators and Dr. Alhamrawy himself called me to address any concerns I had. He seems to genuinely care about his patients and is very knowledgable, and helped resolve my thumb issue. I highly recommend him.

I came to Dr. Al in terrible pain. My ankle, wrist, and shoulder stopped me from doing many of the things i enjoyed. I came to Dr. AL's office and he immediately knew what to do. He gave me some injectionsand referred me to a physical therapist in the same building. I haven't felt any pain in my wrist or shoulder since the injections, it was pretty amazing. After a little physical therapy treatment for my ankle, the pain went away there as well. He was knowledgeable, reassuring, and extremely effective. I would recommend him to anyone.

I found Dr.Alhamrawy through zocdoc. Patients provided positive reviews and they proved to be accurate. I have a history of knee pain and arthritis but experienced severe knee pain before Christmas unrelated to an injury, resulting in inabilityto walk or bend knee. Trip to ER was non productive. Dr Alhamrawy was able to see me the Monday after the incident. Office staff were professional,pleasant and efficient, Dr. Alhamrawy was knowledgable and after brief history and examination suggested Hyalgan therapy. I am very pleased with the care and treatment received.

Dr. Al has the patient's best interest and needs as his top priority. He uses a conservative approach mixed with injections, epidurals and medications. He truly wants to help remove your pain, not just mask the symptoms.

He is a doctor who cares about his patients and pays attention to your wants and needs. He is interested in eliminating your pain in a conservative manner, but ensures your pain needs are being met. He remembers details about hispatients, which is not common in 2016. Overall, I would highly recommend him to pain patients.

I hurt my knee playing basketball and could not move my leg at all. I needed immediate help and Dr. Alhamrawy was the best decision I could've made. I was beyond impressed with my experience at his office.I was completely blownaway by how helpful and informative he was and how he was able to get my knee feeling better quickly by removing the fluid as a result of the torn meniscus. My appointment ran on time, Dr Alhamrawy was really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him!

I have been a patient of Dr. Al's for almost 2 years, so it was a no-brainer to follow him to his new office. I would never trust another doctor when it comes to all my back issues following an almostdeadly car accident I was involved in 10 years ago. He is one of the best doctor's I've ever been to. Just a few months ago, I cracked another one of the discs in my back and needed an emergency injection. I was in agony and could barely walk. He told me to come right in the next morning, gave me the injection (which I was very reluctant to get after I had adverse reactions to my injection after my accident) and called me from his personal cell phone that night to check on me. His bedside manner, knowledge and treatment plans far surpass most physicians.
