Wonderful bedside manner. I was very nervous during every procedure he performed, but he and his staff calmed me. Dr. Anijar explained everything he was doing. Warm, friendly, and very reassuring. I would highly recommend him!

Thanks to Doctor Anijar my mom went in to see the doctor complaining of hip pain and pain shooting down her leg. After the doctors examination it ended up being that the pain was from her back not the hip. After her epidural my mom feels much better. Thanks to the doctor and the staff

The whole staff was wonderful. Dr. Adijar listened (not all doctors do) and took the time to explain all my options before deciding on a course of treatment. He has a wonderful manner that can convince you that even a needle in your knee isn't that bad (it wasn't) I highly recommend him and the practice

After being a patient with the same doctor for pain at Sylvester I was happy to find a very nice, clean incredibly stocked with all the latest gadgets and the first time since I had my intrathecal pump that they first numbed out my area then under fluoroscopy stuck me with no fishing for the port or pain. It was a pleasure.

Dr Anijar had helped my mother tremendously. Yes, he gave her pain medicine in her wrist, but he is cautious, asks questions, gives recommendations. He has a thoughtful approach that ensures he is doing right by his patients. He is also just lovely and makes you feel like he actually cares. Rare in today’s world of traditional and pain medicine.
