Ratings for Dr. Abid Qureshi
I developed severe sciatica in Jan. 2016 and after proceeding through medication, PT, two epidural injections, x-rays and MRM imaging and diagnosis (bulged L4-L5 disc with long term disc degeneration) and waiting for 5 months in constant pain I consulted with Dr. Qureshi. He was very thorough in reviewing my case, and carefully walked me though options. He made sure that all my questions were addressed, recommending a TLIF for the best chance of resolution and to achieve my rehabilitation goals. Dr. Qureshi discussed pros/cons, compared to other possible methods, etc. After the initial consultation I checked websites, talked with numerous people that went through back surgery, and checked track records of other possible orthopedic surgeons. I decided to schedule the TLIF operation with Dr. Qureshi who has excellent recommendations and expertise in this technique. I believe that the preparation and surgery were the best I could get...Dr. Qureshi is very skilled and supportive. The surgery was a complete success to eliminate my sciatica. Recuperation has been fairly quick (I am now at 3.5 months post-op), and Dr. Qureshi continues to provide great recovery support. This was a tough decision to make, but the right one. I am sure my recovery will be very good and I will be back to my regular lifestyle with rock climbing, motorcycle sport riding, etc. Dr. Qureshi and John Muir Orthopedics were key. Thank you very much Dr. Qureshi you are awesome.
Before 2006 I had constant lower back pain and took pain medications all day. I couldn't walk, do steps or stairs, or sit for several hours without pain. Traveling by car or plane was not possible. Dr. Qureshi recommended surgery and without hesitation I said yes. Today, 10 years later, at age 75, I am pain free. I can travel long distances by car and/or plane, walk several miles, take the stairs, and work out at the gym. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Qureshi for giving me my life back! Dr. Qureshi is the best!
I have battled various orthopedics problems in the past (since I used to play high school football...knee problems, shoulder, elbow etc) and have dealt with several orthopedic surgeons in the past. But, Dr. Qureshi is by far the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever dealt with. I suffered a fractured vertebrae (L5) and a ruptured disc while working out in the gym. My symptoms were extremely severe and had almost full paralysis in my right leg. Dr. Qureshi performed a L5-S1 laminectomy (or commonly known as spinal fusion surgery) on me back in September 2016. The day after surgery, when I was instructed to get up and walk, my paralysis was completely gone and surgery couldn't have gone any better. Dr Qureshi was absolutely fabulous in his calming bedside manner, knowledge of the field, medical evaluation and advice. Dr. Qureshi is extremely kind and knowledgeable. He is very thorough with his examination and took the time to explain everything to me by showing me the X-ray images and explaining why we needed to move forward with the surgery. Since the surgery, I have been visiting the office to follow-up on my condition and couldn't be any more impressed by Dr. Qureshi's enthusiasm; not to mention the nurses and staff are extremely kind and friendly. It has been a great pleasure to get to know Dr. Qureshi and his staff and I recommend them to everyone with great enthusiasm.
I have had two serious lower back operations over the past five years (a laminectomy and a spinal fusion--L3 through Sacrum), under Dr. Qureshi's care. Both operations have radically improved my life. He is a very thoughtful and communicative professional as well as a meticulous surgeon, traits not commonly found together. Throughout treatment he continually weighed the risks and benefits of my options, and made them clear to me. He does not rush to any approach but considers each situation uniquely. The rehabilitation from both operations was neither quick nor easy, but the results have been extremely good. At one time I could hardly walk and was in constant pain. I credit him with having me back at the gym and pool, not to say making each day a joy instead of a dread! I consider the the nine long hours he spent over a microscope delicately fixing my lower spine an example of state of the art modern medicine.
I had a Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion June 2015 on L4-5. I had seen 3 prior surgeons before finally getting in to see Dr. Qureshi ( all of whom were not from Muir Orthopedics) He's the only surgeon who could actually tell me what was wrong in a way that i could understand, he didn't just throw medical terminology at me. I have Ischemic Spondylolishesis and i've seen alot of medical professionals in the last 13 years. Dr. Qureshi is by far the best. I have mostly recovered and am almost ready to go back to work. I cannot thank Muir Orthopedics, Dr. Qureshi and his staff enough. I am grateful to all at Muir Orthopedics. Any one who is dealing with back or neck problems, Dr. Qureshi is the man who can help. Thank you so very much, Dr. Qureshi and thanks again to Jenise. She took care of my disability paperwork and had to deal with the crapy people who i have my insurance with. Thank you again
I had one major triple fusion of L2-L5 by Dr. Qureshi in June 2015. Surgert took about 6 hours. Dr. Qureshi is very personable and explains everything clearly. I went to him on recommendation of 2 M.D.s and friend who had used him. They definitely were correct. He is totally professional (and he has the softest hands). Can't say enough positive things.
I have had two major spine surgeries with Doctor Abid Qureshi operating. Dr. Qureshi is an excellent, attentive, and very knowledgeable medical professional. While in recovery for my most recent surgery the pain management doctor visited my room and upon seeing Dr. Qureshi told me that Dr. Qureshi is “the doctor for the doctors.” That is a statement I can wholeheartedly agree with. A very long and intensive surgery, I had the upmost faith that Dr. Qureshi would do a job well done—and he did. If I could give more than five stars I would.
