    How was your appointment with Dr. Alabdulkarim?

    Jan 27, 2024
    I am thankful I was referred here by Dr. Barry Henry. I’ve had chronic, constant, nerve pain for 4 years (I am 34 years old now), and I have been to many doctors throughout that span with very little relief. I’ve had multiple epidurals in my neck, shoulder, and wrist, as well as physical therapy, dry needling, laser therapy, cryotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care, etc. My options were becoming limited other than surgery. The pain I had experienced was affecting my mood, work ethic, and overall well-being. Dr. Karim is very personable, but most importantly, he listens to your problems and concerns and addresses those issues. He has me on medications, but they have helped tremendously, almost to a point where my pain is completely gone. I could cry with how happy and relieved I have been feeling. Dr. Karim is a blessing, and I recommend him to anyone that’s experienced similar symptoms.
