I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.Narendra G. ★★★★★

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen. Robin helped me many times with insurance to ensure that I got my shots in a timely manner (Hi Robin!). I’ve been going to this office for about three years and I couldn’t be more pleased!Anne ★★★★★
I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.Jeff ★★★★★
I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.Glen ★★★★★
I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.Jen ★★★★★
I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.Sharon
