I am a patient of Dr.Nazim at moss memorial heath clinic. I dont think i am being treated good by him. First off here are my most recent mri results of my neck.

Degenerative disc disease present at C6-C7.


Multilevel intervertebral disc desiccation. Straightening of the cervical lordotic curvature.

C3-C4: Left posterior lateral annular tear.

C4-C5: Mild intervertebral disc bulge narrows the ventral subarachnoid space. Mild left neural foraminal narrowing

C5-C6: Mild intervertebral disc bulge narrows the ventral subarachnoid space. Mild left neural foraminal narrowing

C6-C7: Diffuse intervertebral disc bulge narrows the ventral subarachnoid space. The central canal is narrowed 8 mm. Moderate left and mild right neural foraminal narrowing.

Cervical spondylosis most prominent at C6-C7 with central canal stenosis and left greater than right neural foraminal narrowing.....

Problem is Dr.Nazim has told me at just about every visit i have been to that EVERYBODY who has an mri of their neck will show bulging discs like mine, this may be true for people over 70 years old, but i was 25 when i first had these problems with my neck i am 30 now. He makes me feel like he underplays my illness every visit, and recently told me he doesnt know why i am in pain. I am not a drug head and dont take my medication for nothing, i am in horrible pain every day from the time i wake till i fall asleep. Also I have been having chronic migraines for over a year now and have told Dr.Nazim about this on numerous visits, so he prescribed me Amitriptyline, but i still had migraines almost everyday, so my next visit (3 months later) i told him that i am still having migraines but amitriptyline helps very little, so he upped the dose and still had migraines, next visit (3 months later) i told him im still having them and amitriptyline helps but i still have them, so he told me to just keep taking them. He hasnt done any tests to see why i have these migraines or gave me any reason why.

Another problem i have is Dr.Nazim does not give refills on my medications, his nurse tells me if i need refills to call my pharmacy to send a refill request fax which is ok with me but the problem is that when i get my pharmacy to send it Dr.Nazim doesnt send the fax back untill around 21 days later so i suffer for weeks. This is EVERY month i go through this, pain, suffering, and withdraws, from going weeks without my meds every month this happens. Every visit i go to he runs in and tries to run out as fast as he can, so everytime i have questions or concerns i have to stop him while hes walking out the door.

i just dont think im being treated right and fairly. I really like going through memorial, but i really dont want to see Dr.Nazim again.

i have tried to contact the patient rep. but she was no help at all, after a few emails she told me that my emails to her was going to her spam box and never heard back. My patient rights have been broken over and over again.
