02/10/12 3 1 1 3 Terrible experience! I honestly cannot belive this Doctor is on any list of "helpful Doctors". I saw this Doctor while in University Medical Center. after 6 weeks in the hospital I was assigned to Dr. Annabi. He did one spinal injection above my existing 4 level spinal fusion (l-3 thru S-1)that procedure was completely unsucessful. I was given a medication for sedation that was absolutely terrible (ketamine)After the first injection i was scheduled for another 5 days later. After 3 hours in the pre-op room I was sent back to my room and told Dr. Annabi was not able to make the procedure. When i asked why I was told " we dont know, he wont even answer his phone". Dr. Annabi caught me in the elevator while in transport back to my room. At that time he stated that he was sorry for missing the procedure and that i just needed to be discharged and see him in his office in 6 to 8 weeks! This was simply not an option. I eventualy learned i had displaced hardware pressing on my spinal cord!!

16/01/10 3 2 2 3 First appt., never once examined my mother, my mom asked about a serious problem she was having, she was told he was a pain specialist and couldn't be concerned with other problem, though he did finally say it could be heart failure, didn't seem at all concerned with that, wouldn't tell her what she should do about it, only does steroid shots in the back, nothing else, not a pain specialists, only shots for back pain
