What Patients Are Saying

“Cathy Hays and Dr El’mohandes are extremely exceptional practitioners. I’ve been with them for exactly 5 years now, and I am very, very satisfied with their expertise, experience, but even more so with their deep care and compassion for me as a patient. “Bedside manners” are incomparable–they listen with concern, believe in me, are passionate in their desire to make me as painfree as possible, while still helping me to continue to be a productive member of the community. In my 20+ years of living with chronic daily migraines, both Cathy & Dr El represent the best among the medical practitioners I’ve met and worked with. And Dr El has infused his office staff with the same “we’re here to serve you” attitude when it comes to his clinical and front office staff.” – Marcus

“Dr. El-Mohandas has always answered my questions in a way that I can understand the terminology. He also is very pleasant in his approach and uses humor to lighten the stress before the actual procedure begins then instructs his assistants so that they give the best care. He is apologetic for any inconveniences, which have been rare. I have complete confidence in him doing a procedures.” – Doris
