Ratings for Dr. IMAD Rasool
Excellent MD and his staff and Pain Clinic are the best Ive used. I have been a patient of his for 5 years and since seeing them my overall quality of life has improved dramatically. If you are a chronic pain patient these people are the ones to go too, they care and they provide results.
Horrible. Absolutely HORRIBLE. Terrible staff. Checked his license and found that he has a Malpractice Arbitration Award on his record. Someone reported on this site that his wife died suddenly while under Dr. Rasool's care. I really don't know how he managed to get #1 of 11 Anesthesiologists in Northridge, CA. Good God. This guy's an idiot. And he's an a-hole. He mis-read my MRI (or got me mixed up with another patient) and totally talked down to me. Excuse me S-head. Talking down to woman might be okay in Bagdad, but it doesn't work that way here. I filed a formal complaint against him and am taking on a mission to get Facey to stop contracting with him completely.
I have been a patient since 2010 and cannot say enough about dr. Russell. He has given me my life back and gone above and beyond to explain about my condition and how he can help. Betty is an absolute angel, I cannot believe anyone would write a word against her or the doctor. In the past 5 years I have seen how patients behave in the office and those that write bad reviews are probably not telling the truth or asking for extra meds. I would trust this doctor and have with my life. I would also recommend him to anyone who is in chronic pain.
He is the WORST doctor with the WORST staff. Betty doesn't know what she is doing and neither does anyone there. I was supposed to get a Spinal Cord Implant for back pain (broke my back 8 years ago with 2 back surgeries). I got the phycology eval. and my insurance approved my procedure back on Dec. 6, 2013. I kept calling them to see what was taking so long. All they said was they have nothing. I contacted my insurance, & they said they approved it a long time ago & gave me the auth. number. I called them again & the said I was being to demanding & disrespectful. Excuse me, but you are pain clinic, & I'm in pain. The dr. called me yesterday & said 'you are a selfish, dmanding, inconsiderate b**ch & I refuse to be your dr.' No, I'm on your case because I need & getting NO help. He went on to degrade me as a woman & human being saying VERY rude things to me. I have NEVER been talked down to like this. STAY AWAY FROM THEM!! Now I'm trying to find a better dr.
One of the worst doctors. Offered no solution for 7 months of disabling back pain yet recommended a nerve block for a secondary issue involving numbness in thigh. Had not reviewed both MRI reports and misanalyzed my condition and simply ignored significant herniated discs. Condescending and told me my back pain is all in my control to fix even though I have gone out of network and paid out of pocket for PT, chiropractic, acupuncture, traction, cupping, etc. without recovery. I have found my own reputable doctor and am paying out of pocket for epidurals. I asked about the nerve block and he was trite and laughed when I asked questions such as how he avoids hitting the femoral artery when injecting the femoral nerve. I would not let this doctor touch me as he showed poor judgment and was sloppy in his review of my case and I was offended by his treatment of me. I also prefer a better background. Unimpressive credentials, Univ of Baghdad training.
My wife died suddenly while being treated by Dr. Rasool. Malpractice Arbitration decided against Dr. Rasool, saying his conduct breached the standard of care, and I received a monetary award, which hardly begins to compensate for having lost my soulmate.
I would have to say that Dr. Rasool is one of the kindest and honest doctors we have ever had the privaledge of having. He went above and beyond to help my husband who has lived in constant pain for almost 9 years. We love him and will continue to use his expertise. Thank God for him.
