Verified Patient Reviews
Dr.Zackary was very professional. I went in because of lower back pain when coughing and sneezing. He really listened to what I had to say and asked me very detailed questions that allowed him to really figure out what is wrong. He performed different tests to see what exactly was bothering me. He gave me very good advice and a variety of options and detailed descriptions of what I had to do. He will schedule follow up appoinments to make sure everything is working out.

Awesome doctor! Loved his approach. Looking forward to this journey out of pain.
I have suffered from chronic non-malignant pain for more than 10 years. As I am new to Metro-Atlanta I was anxious about changing doctors and all the issues that come along with pain management and medication continuation. Dr Boomsaad was beyond courteous and spent more time than ANY DOC I HAVE EVERY HAD A CONSULTATION with regarding medication options and moving me to more long term solutions. I would highly recommend Dr Boomsaad for any chronic pain ,management patient.
