Ratings for Dr. Ali Mortazavi
Dr M, his PA and the assisting nurses have been nothing but supportive, open eared and willing to help. Each and everyone made sure that my concerns were heard and an explanation was given. Dr M is literally the best doctor I’ve ever came across and I would recommend him within a heartbeat.
Don't waste your time or money. I had back surgery in June (I'm 24) and at first the back pain/nerve pain in my left leg went away and now it has come back with a vengeance and Mortazavi has cut me loose. "Great" follow up care, yeah right. The only staff member that is awesome is Kelley. She is so helpful and actually cares about the patients. I called to get more muscle relaxers and 7.5 hydros because I am back to working 40 hour weeks and the nurse, Amanda, told me over the phone that he will no longer help me and that I need to find another doctor. I was just in his office maybe 3 weeks ago and he did not tell me any of this. I even told him that I was moving but would fly back for any appointments. He was okay with all of that 3 weeks ago yet when I need medicine they tell me to go somewhere else. I've only called 2x for pain medicine in the last month and a half so I'm not a drug seeker. I just don't understand.
I was talked to as through I was a not a person, I felt as thought he thought I was too old to bother with, I am only 69. So he therefore sentenced to me a life of pain and relying on a walker for assistance. I was so very disappointed and confused when I left his office. My appointment was with Dr Mortazavi, but he had to go to hospital, so his PA explained there would be two surgeries and his nurse even explained all about insurance and gave me paper work to take to my primary phisican. I decided to wait and when Dr Mortazavi arrive he was very friendly with my daughter and daughter in law but spoke to me as if I was a not able to understand him. Then he when explained the procedure he want to do it had nothing to do with surgery or relieving my pain. He actually sent me to another pain clinic. I do not want drugs for the rest of my life or do I want to rely on a walker. I had heard such great things about this doctor I was very very disapointed
Mortazavi told me I have the neck of an elderly woman even though I'm not even 50. He's already recommended surgery based on my X-rays alone. Still waiting for my MRI to be scheduled (slow) I was given several non-opiate medications to help control the intense pain, but nothing helped, when I called to request something more effective, I was treated like a drug addict by his staff and denied any effective pain relief by Mortazavi. I went to Resurgeons to seek relief from pain, not only did they do nothing to help, but they made me feel humiliated for even asking for pain relief. According to the 'good' doctor, I will need surgery, but he won't be doing it!!!
