“I highly recommend Dr. Rimlawi and his associates. I had lived with severe cervical pain for 15 years. Dr. Rimlawi is the only spine doctor in DFW who would touch my neck. He saw my MRI results and said ‘I can help’ and asked me how I lived with my neck pain for 10 years! Dr. Rimlawi has created his own minimally invasive surgical techniques. At 6 weeks post op from Dr. Rimlawi performing my 4-level cervical fusion I had no more pain! My neck was done in 2014 and I went in to get my back done in December 2016. I have been pain free ever since. Dr. Rimlawi is passionate about people living pain free and giving them the best quality life. He truly cares about helping his patients. He is honest and realistic. I am forever grateful to him for providing me another chance at life. I am thankful the Lord gave Dr. Rimlawi his passion and knowledge!!! Thankful every day!!! I can now live and not just exist. In my experience, Dr. Rimlawi is the best spine doctor I have encountered. I tell everyone I know about he and his doctors.” -Terra
“One of the things I have enjoyed in this experience is how Dr. Rimlawi thoroughly explained the procedure. He and his nurse practitioner have been very genuine in caring about how I am doing. I no longer have the pain that I began with and I no longer have numbness in my right leg. I knew that I was in good hands, may God continue to bless everything that you do.” – Pamela W.
“I honestly feel great! I am so appreciative of what you have done for me. I have not had a headache since my surgery, which is a miracle on its own! I feel like I finally got my life back, and for that I am so very grateful! While I hope to not need you guys again any time soon, if I do, you all will be my first call.” – Catherine S.
“I have struggled with back pain for over 25 years. In my younger years I worked out, I practiced Karate, I have pounded concrete for 30 yrs. Little by little it was destroying my back. I lived with pain daily, I had to stop working out. I went from living life to medicating my back pain. I was in excruciating pain on both sides of my legs, pain all the way down to my ankles. It never stopped. I worked every day in pain and at the end of work I could barely get in my car to come home. For years I went to doctors. They would just give me more pain pills and injections and try therapy—nothing ever helped. For years I was told that surgeons wouldn’t touch me because I was overweight, so I suffered. My wife had neck surgery a few years ago by Dr. Rimlawi. I asked her to call and see if he would see me. He was very honest with me. He saw my MRI and knew that I was in pain. Dr. Rimlawi told me that because of my size it was going to be difficult, but he said that he would do it. Dr. Rimlawi fixed me! For the first time in years I am pain FREE and off of all pain pills. Dr. Rimlawi gave me my life back. Thank you Dr. Rimlawi for taking great care of me. I am now working out more and teaching my youngest son Karate!” – Robert R.
