    I went to Dr. Ghobriel for relief of leg pain being caused by a herniated disc. The pain prevented me from standing or walking for more than 5 minutes. My orthopedist suggested disc fusion surgery. I decided to try epidural steroid injections. After multiple injections by Dr. Ghobriel, the pain is all but gone. I can now do everything that I did before the disc herniated occurred. Thank you Dr. Ghobriel!

    I saw Dr. Ghobriel for back and leg pain - sciatica. She gave me meds, an injection of steroid and later a Radiofrequency Ablation. I have not had pain for the last month and feel 100% better! It improved my mobility and I can do a lot of things I could do before the pain started. I would recommend Dr. Ghobriel to anyone who has back pain.

    My name is J. Schultz. Over the last several years I have suffered with lower back pain. I saw several Pain Management doctors -- none of them did anything to relieve my pain.

    I had spine surgery for two years in a row which did not help. I found Dr. Ghobriel by accident and it was the best thing that has happened to me in years! It seems that is was my hip causing me all of the pain and not my back. Dr. Ghobriel helped me immediately by offering a steroid injection for my hip.

    I, Dennis Q, want to say that after I received two shots from Dr. Ghobriel I felt 100% better!  I was in pain for so long I didn't think I would get any relief, but I was wrong.  I feel like she performed a miracle!

    Dr. Ghobriel and her staff are so nice and made me feel very relaxed and confident tha she would help me which she did.  I am now able to do more activities and feel like a new person!

    Dear Dr. Ghobriel,

    I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my results after only two visits to you I am relatively pain free.

    I have been suffering with tendonitis in my left foot for over a year.  I've been to four different doctors.  I've been wrapped, booted, braced, sent to physical therapy, etc. - all to my avail.  Thank you for finally helping me.

  • Dear Dr. Ghobriel and staff,

    Thank you just does not emphasize how much I appreciate what you have done for me.  You have given me my life back. I have been suffering from back pain for over 15 years. Dr. Ghobriel was my answer. It was the BEST thing I have ever done for myself.

    Thank you all so much,
    John G. and family

    After being in constant pain for five months, my orthopedist recommended pain management. I went to Dr. G who reviewed my MRI and scheduled an epidural.  

    From the beginning visit on I was impressed and pleased with the compassion and professionalism of Dr. Ghobriel and her entire staff. Needless to say, I am a fan and would not hesitate to return!

    My name is Ann Mark.  I came to Dr. Ghobriel in December 2013 in total agony because of herniated discs.  On January 2, 2014 Dr. Ghobriel gave me an epidural injection at CentraState Medical Center and I walked out a new person!  I am almost completely pain free and can do any activities I want.  I feel young again, thank you so much Dr. Ghobriel!

  • After experiencing back pain and leg pain for six months without any relief, I went to Liberty Pain Center.  Dr. Ghobriel performed shots in my back.  I felt so much relief that I am now able to resume my life without any pain.  Thank you Dr. Ghobriel!

  • I came to Dr. Ghobriel for pain relief.  She recommended that I have steroid shots.  After the first injection, I had about a 1/3 relief in my pain.  I waited three weeks and had a second injection.  About three days after the injection my pain was reduced to about 10% of what it had been, and on some days there was no pain at all!
