Wonderful team led by the Awesome Dr Murtaza, they always do the accurate diagnoses and provide exceptional care.
Great physician I strongly recommend Dr Murtaza in 18 years of chronic pain he is the only one who has help me to keep my pain under control.
If I could leave 0 stars i would. this man runs a factory. he's not interested in you, only giving shots to everyone. after receiving 2 shots without success, rather than trying a third he ghosted me. I called every day for 10 days, left messages on his portal and NO RESPONSE. My wife called as well, and NO RESPONSE. He deserted me. Don't be his next victim, find another practice that cares about their patience.
Extremely disappointed. All he is interested in is making money. If you aren't feeling well from his injections and call for further help he never bothers to call you back. My husband called every day for an an entire week, sent three emails, and I even called. After two pain injections, he didn't even give the common curtesy of having his P.A. call to see how she could help further. I never heard of a doctor too busy to care about helping his patients. Do Not go to this doctor unless you want to be deserted when he doesn't have success. Despicable behavior.
Dr Murtaza has been my MD for 20 yrs. He Is one of the best Dr’s that I’ve ever had. The only one that comes close is the DR who referred me to him. He is an incredibly special doctor. He sincerely wants to help! You can see it in his caring & determination. But what really makes him unique is his ability to think outside the box. It’s a challenge to him Because he cares. I expect him to come up with a new treatment on his own one day. I’ve followed him wherever he’s been & in between places I have not done well. There are groups of us who know what a difference he makes.When he leaves a place to go to his next step up he is missed so badly. I don’t immediately think of being a DR & being joyful in quite the same realm. But he truly is joyful. He gets excited when he finds a new RX some thing that will work; a new possibility such as combining 2 different RX’s based on the best in both & then tailoring this to his patients needs. His students & patients are lucky to haVe him.
Second time I went to see Dr. Murtaza but for a different issue. I have had this problem since March. I had constant pain and lethargy. Pain pills and muscle relaxers were not helping. One painful part of my body was affecting my whole body and mind. Of course I know its all connected. But I just want to say I am very impressed and amazed at the quick results after being treated by Dr. Murtaza.I highly recommend him.Pain and swelling gone and I feel well and energetic again. Can do my activities of daily living and have a good sense of well being.Thank you again Dr. Murtaza
Dr. Murtaza is hands down amazing. I had been having trouble with some tingling in my shoulder blade and upper back for a few months and decided I should see someone. Not only was his staff welcoming and friendly, Dr. Murtaza reviewed my medical history, explained everything in detail and spent extra time answering all of my questions. After 1 simple trigger point injection, my tingling is gone! I am so happy and I would absolutely recommend him and his pain practice!
Dr. Sajjad Murtaza has been my doctor for around 5 years and has been such a blessing in my life! I would fly across the Nation if I had to see him! When I first met him, I could barely walk, I was in immense pain, and another Neuro Dr. had me on some questionable meds that had endangered my well being. Dr. Murtaza was able to right the ship and get be back to acceptable level of health. Without him, I would not being able to function everyday without pain. He treats you as a human. He listens and wants to get to the root of the problem, rather than throwing medication at patient. He thinks outside the box and utilize all the tools out there to help his patients. He doesn't treat you like a number or money assembly line. He cares and takes the time. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone seeking assistance for pain management or anyone needing answers when no on else seems to be able to find any. Thank you, Dr. Murtaza!
A true professional who partners with you in an innate way to help you achieve your health goals. Fot the foolio who posted “shady and only after the money”; please... this couldn’t be further from the truth. However, you’re welcome to your First Amendment Right to disparage someone. Murtaza and his staff really go the extra mile to help you achieve your health goals and work with you proactively within the confines of your condition to make the situation mutually agreeable for you and your situation while also striving for AND achieving results. I am proud to have him as my health consultant and will continue to send those in need his way and to personally utilize he and his clinic in the future.
Unfortunately Dr's Murtaza staff is really really bad, they never called back or followup with me or other patients.
Doc Murtaza is my hero! He fixed my excruciating pain from damaged discs! He and Jessica saved me! They actually listen. They make smart decisions and tell you your plan to recovery. I went from being unable to get out of a bed with help to zero pain!
Dr. Murtaza helped alleviate pain in my neck and provided proper rehab guidance to maintain it. My quality of life has drastically improved since.
Procedure went well... As long as you follow advice you will have a smooth recovery. Great attitude. Staff is very friendly.
Excellent Doctor, highly recommend him, he has treated me with 2 different conditions and has relief my pain, of course as a patient I also have to follow directions on treatment. Also Drs staff are amazing, so friendly and polite. Location it's so convenient on the West loop.
I recently visited Dr. Murtaza at the Metropolitan Institute of Pain and I am so happy (and relieved). For those of you with chronic pain, you may know what I mean - to be relieved of pain symptoms (especially in the back area) is the best feeling.Anyways, so I injured my lower back during a yoga sculpt class and I thought I would check this place out after visiting my family in Chicago. My back pain began interfering with work as well since the pain would flare up while I was sitting at my desk. I tried a chiropractor, and then some very expensive massages, but these didn't really help. I finally looked at other ways to treat my back pain and decided to check out this place after a friend (who I assumed was annoyed with my nonstop talk of my back pain) recommended it.Well folks, I am almost entirely pain free! Dr. Murtaza clearly explained to me my treatment plan and took the time to educate me about my diagnosis and MRI. Even though I was a little grumpy during the visit due to having a particularly bad episode of back pain, Dr. Murtaza was friendly and calming. Overall, I highly recommend this place if you're experiencing pain (especially back/neck pain).
I have been a pain patient of Dr. Murtaza's for about 20 years now. I am very experience pain patient, I have had serval pain doctors before I refer to him. I have never met a doctor who is more creative in his thinking, I was so happy to find him. He always has a plan A,B, C and D no matter how challenging the diagnosis might be. He is amazing with patients he has great people skills and a great bed side manner. I am very grateful to have him as mum doctor. I always thank him for being there , he makes a huge difference in my wellbeing.
I most highly recommend Dr. Murtaza. I have been a long time patient of his, he is an excellent physician and every time I've had to have a procedure done I have gotten good results. He is both kind and understanding. More over he is generous and you know he is not out for the money. I know that because one of my procedure was considered experimental and he absorbed it with out charging me. He was always up front about the cost of things, he knew I was going through financial difficulties and thus is were empathy comes in. He always provides more than one option for treatment.
Superb. Smart. Efficient. Kind. And did the job well.
Super shady and only after the money. Even with you being a patient who is undergoing treatment they make you come in to pick up an MRI request and charge your insurance for a visit. They explain this with that is what is required under your plan - as verified by my insurance provider that statement was bullshit. Then they recommend surgery under Xray while the whole medical world recommends this to be done as ultrasound guided for the health of the patient. Also, the recommended surgery was only to break up the calcific deposits with a needle while NorthWestern performed the same and also removed the deposit in one step. This would have been another procedure with Dr Murtaza. He is really just after his wallet and not into the best of his patients.
Seems like Dr. Murtaza is attentive and cares until he learns that your injury is not that serious and he will not be able to profit from you. Appointments felt very rushed, barely answered any questions. Very disappointing experience. When you come in, the admin staff asks you to fill out information about your health, prior injury history etc on the pieces of paper with extremely small print. You can barely see the questions asked. The admin staff has no knowledge of payment options
