“I was living every day in misery and didn’t want to get out of bed. Icouldn’t do any fun things. People wanted to go bike riding or bowling, and Ijust didn’t want to. Chronic pain ruins everything. It colored everything forme pretty badly. I wasn’t ready for another surgery so I had a second injectionand it was a miracle! From a solid seven pain level every day, now my pain isat a level one, if at all. I’m back in my garden, with pets, grandkids, nowhaving fun with them. I am totally psyched, thrilled, emotional, excited abouteverything. Most people in chronic pain don’t like to talk about it much,because that’s all we think or talk about and nobody likes to hear it all thetime. Don’t give up- keep trying, go to another doctor, try some other treatment.Now it’s all worth everything!”

“I have had neck pain and severe migraine headaches and I haven’t hadmuch success with migraine medications. I wanted to be more proactive, so Ichose to go see Dr. Navani. My first initial experience was outstandingservice. The treatment that worked was the occipital nerve block. I did not geta headache the morning after the procedure. It was a simple procedure. I amable to exercise again. It’s exciting not to have a constant headache- itcreates a happier home for myself and for my family. Now I don’t even have tothink about the pain. I have been hiking in the sun and heat. If you’reskeptical, I would do some research- it’s very non-invasive and the results areabsolutely amazing. I’m so pleased. I am very happy to have some relief,finally, from Dr. Navani.”

She took personal interest, listened to me, anddetermined the best plan of care. Dr. Navani’s expert and caring methodsquickly reduced my pain, all the while she encouraged me. Her wonderful andpersonal care has brought me back to the threshold of wellness, where I ambeginning to enjoy a full life again. It is my great pleasure to have thisopportunity, to thank Dr. Navani and her wonderful staff, for their excellentcare.

Dr Annu Navani at Comprehensive Pain Management was highlyrecommended to me by my podiatrist. I am so elated to have found such a greatdoctor. Dr. Navani is so knowledgeable, caring and up to date on the latesttechnology. I had a nerve block injection and I was so amazed at how well ithas worked. For the first time in many years I have received some significantrelief from my severe foot pain. Now I can stand for longer periods of timewithout continually thinking about when I can give my feet a break. The entirestaff at their office is really great and very nice to work with.

“Living with chronic pain is quite a challenge. Some days mylower back feels like a knife is jabbing into me. Other days my legs and feetwill spasm, ache, and burn. There are times when medication and exercise do notcompletely help. These are the times I rely on prayer. I couldn’t go throughthe pain as well without the help of the Comprehensive Pain Management Center.Dr. Annu Navani has supported me through the past seven years. She and herefficient staff have helped me with their expertise in pain management. Recently,I fractured my sacrum. Dr. Navani and her staff immediately ordered the propertests, evaluated my condition and successfully treated me. Her administrativestaff saw to it that all my insurance paperwork was done in a timely manner.I’ve learned to stay positive through my condition. I get out of bed everymorning and shower, put on make up, comb my hair and get dressed. I’m alwaysready to meet the day. I don’t allow pain to keep me from my daily schedule,even an occasional lunch with a friend. I don’t use a housekeeper becausemoving around is one of the best things I can do for my body. On my number “8″days I may have to recline and pt my legs up, but…I don’t lay around feelingsorry for myself. I push through my pain and stay positive to enjoy the bestlife I can. I would not be able to handle my pain if it were not for Dr. Navaniand her team of specialists. I am grateful to each one.”

I moved away from California and the care of Dr. Navani aboutsixteen months ago, it took me a few months to write this and to reflect backand I am hoping that patients who read this and come under her care will beinspired by my story. My story goes like this…. I thought no one was asknowledgeable about my pain but me until I met Dr Navani. I knew right then andthere that I had found a doctor who was going to put my needs first and get tothe bottom of the pain like no one had before. She did exactly that. I did whatshe told me to and within three months my pain was under control. My painlevels were low and I was happy again. I wanted to once again leave my home, goto work, and out with friends. When I moved away, I had to find a new painmanagement doctor. I moved to Georgia and I thought I had made one of thebiggest mistakes of my life as I could not find a doctor like Dr.Navani…. I looked everywhere but she could not be found. Theend to the story is that I did find a wonderful doctor whom I like and trustvery much BUT HE’S NOT DOCTOR NAVANI. She caresabout you and she will be there for you. Open up to her so she will know youinside and out and don’t ever be afraid to tell her what it’s on your mind orbothering you. You must trust her! I promise you that you will have a kinddoctor who is eager to help you regain your health back so you can live anormal life again. You never know what you have until you don’t have itanymore. Dr. Navani is one of those wonderful loving doctors with a gift toheal not only your health but your soul. The world could use a million morejust like her. To you, Dr. Navani from the bottom of my spine L4 L5 S1, I missyou and thank you for the many years we have had working together on my backand to your entire team that always made me feel like I was the only one in theoffice. Thank you!

No matter how much I learned online about my upcoming spinalsurgery, the more informed I was the more “panic mode” would set in, especiallyabout the pain. Frankly, I was terrified. Fortunately, I had Dr. Navani on myteam as pain management specialist. I have been under her care now for months;and post-op we have successfully lowered my need for the pain meds. Dr.Navani’s caring attitude and approachability made my ordeal (especially throughthe months in ‘Halo’) much easier to cope with. Thank you, Dr. Navani. Kudosalso to Erin, Lucia and Yvonne – staff extraordinaire!

My primary physician referred me to Dr. Navani several yearsago. Those of us who have the misfortune of experiencing chronic pain withoutany escape from it’s misery are beyond speech at the prospect of relief fromit’s torture. After several years under Dr. Navani’s care, not only have Ifound that relief, but a physician who is not only an outstanding physician,but an outstanding and sensitive person as well. Her staff reflects her concernfor her patients. They are efficient, warm and inviting. It was a difficultdecision to find a pain management doctor. It was one of the best decisions Ihave made.

Approximately fourteen months ago, I started having severe dailymigraine headaches. My whole life was disrupted. I could not tolerate sound orlight, which made parenting a five-year-old nearly impossible. I was useless tomy family and my job. I had to quit my job as every doctor I saw told me therewas nothing they could do to help me. No specialist could find the reasonbehind my migraines and all told me that I would just have to learn to livewith them. Nobody understood how debilitating the headaches were. Nobody wasthere when I was vomiting, lying in the dark and planning my death. I begged myhusband to leave me so that I could end my life and end the agony I was livingwith. Instead, he found out about Dr. Navani and we made an appointment right away.During my first visit, Dr. Navani diagnosed my problem and scheduledradiofrequency injections for me. After those injections, my whole lifechanged. The pain was gone. I could enjoy time with my daughter instead ofdreading the sound of her voice. It may be cliché to say that Dr. Navani savedmy life, but she truly did. She was able to end the agonizing pain I was livingin and saved me from suicide. My family is forever grateful to Dr. Navani. Shetruly is my hero.
