Florida Spine & Pain Specialists
I was very happy with Dr. Azeem and the care he provided. He was very thorough in his initial examination and discussed with me how to move forward. He listened and responded in detail to my concerns at each visit. At each visit, he focused his attention on me as an individual and not the clock. He was always on time. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
I have been treated by Dr. Azeem for the past two years for my degenerated spine. After years of searching for a physician that is both compassionate and listens to the patient, I can honestly say that I was fortunate to find Dr. Azeem. Other doctors that I had seen gave me pain medications to mask the pain and from the start Dr. Azeem told me that he would find more effective ways to treat my pain. This young man is great at what he does and has given me my life back and I highly recommend him.
I came to Dr Azeem with a multitude of back issues. We sat down, as a team, and layed out possible modalities of treatment. I've found him to be informative and patient with my many questions. It's been in interesting journey. I am now relatively pain free, with out narcotics, and appreciate being part of the process. Thank you, Dr. Azeem, for giving me back my life.
Dr. Azeem is a very caring physician that does the most incredible job helping with your pain management!!! my nerve ablation gave me such relief from my chronic pain. I recommend him to anyone that is in need of pain management.
Great doctor really takes time to listen
When I was told I needed to see a pain management doctor, I was not happy because of all the bad things I heard and pill distribution. I went to Dr. Azeem. His office staff was awesome and definitely caring. Now as for Dr. Azeem, I would definitely rate him a 20!!! He actually sat and listen to me, exam me and in no hurry and this was my first appointment. My second appointment was even better, I felt very comfortable talking to him, he listen and this doctor cares. I truly recommend him!!!!
My husband & I just left from our appointment. I'd have to say I was very impressed with the way he is and how he treats his patients, even when this is the first time meeting. When he opened his computer, he asked if we could see each image with him. He explained exactly what he saw & diagnosed my husband's condition. We are looking forward to this condition no longer existing. I LOVE that he just doesn't shove pills on someone & send them on their way.
My experience with Dr. Azeem was very good. After years of having on and off back pain I have been pain free for about 6 weeks. Dr Azeem is very professional, explains the processes available and actually treats his patients as intelligent adult.
Absolutely! Dr.Azeem took time to show me the X-ray and explained in detail exactly what the procedure entailed,he is polite, professional I have had pain for months ! He performed a Kyphoplasty to repair the L4 which was fractured and the bone was compressed. For lack of the correct I will say he put (cement) in the compressed area to bring it to the normal size, l am 90-95% pain free! I am so grateful Thank you Dr Azeem.
At first Dr. Azeem and I didn't see eye to eye,I was in severe lower back pain with sciatica and wanted pain relief. He informed me that he didn't believe in just giving pain pills [narcotic ones] ,so I had a bit of an attitude about that, because I was hurting. I stuck by him to see if he could help me anyway because I knew he was a good doctor. Well I am happy to admit that my back has not felt this good in over 15yrs with the treatment Dr. Azeem has given me. He's tops in my book I'm grateful.
Very caring, explained a plan to me that hopefully will keep me out of the operating room. Dr Azeem helped me through a very difficult and painful time before and was successful..
I've been in severe pain with sciatica for over 18 months. Various doctors tried several different treatments with minor relief lasting for short periods. After comprehensive exam by Dr Azeem,he pinpointed exact problem & prescribed medication and topical cream giving me pain relief. Physical Therapy and exercise have Also been very helpful.
Dr. Azeem gave me back rang of motion I never believed possible. I had a radio frequency procedure and within a day I had an increased range of motion for my back.
My first visit with Dr Azeem was about two months ago. I was experiencing acute pain in my left SI Joint and lower spine area. Dr Azeem diagnosed my problem immediately and I am now 95% pain free and have resumed all normal activities. Dr Azeem is a young, brilliant, and highly skilled physician with a sensitive positive attitude. Absolutely no doubt in recommending Dr. Azeem to all my neighbors and friends requiring Orthopedic attention.
Dr. Azeem was very helpful. He was referred by another doctor. Gave me options for my pain. Decided on injection in office great equipment and office. After injection 2 hrs later no pain.
Dr. Azeem was wonderful. He does not give pain medication for no reason. He works with you to figure out the cause of your pain and treat it for the long term. He did give me some medication after I got a MRI and started physical therapy to help me with the breakthrough pain. He's a great doctor!
Amazing doc. He listens and knows his stuff. Honestly he is fantastic. If your in pain and you need help go to Dr Azeem. He will get you off meds and on with your life!!
I'm a 7 handicap golfer and develop lower back pain. MRI reviled arthritis and nerve compression. Dr Azeem did a Radio Frequency Ablation and I received immediate pain relief. Played nine holes and for the first time swung with no pain.

America’s Opioid Epidemic
“The current opioid epidemic that is gripping our nation is indiscriminate. It is affecting our seniors to our children, our weekend warriors to professional athletes. I am met with a story daily describing tragedy associated with opioid abuse. Although necessary in very specific circumstances, the overprescription of opioids needs to be curtailed. As a member of the medical community that treats pain daily I will continue to strive to provide long term pain solutions independent of opioids. Further, I will continue to advocate and educate to the medical community at large regarding the non-opioid treatment options available to treat pain.”
– Dr. Nomen Azeem, M.D.
