I am a registered nurse - Dr. Ashraf and his staff are courteous and gracious. They treat you with respect. They care about you and most importantly return your phone calls! I went to several doctors. No one provided a good treatment plan and I could not find relief. The pain was affecting my life and my work. I was miserable. Then I was lucky to find Dr. Ashraf. He absolutely saved my life.

I have been utilizing Comprehensive Spine Care for well over a decade as a nurse case manager caring for injured workers with both spinal and pain management issues. The most important things to me and my patients are timeliness in securing treatment, good outcomes and a focus on returning injured workers to productivity in a safe and effective manner. I know when I refer a patient to anyone of the physicians associated with Comprehensive Spine Care the staff will be sensitive to all of my needs and that I am guaranteed that my goals as a nurse case manager will be met. Thank you for all that you do for me and my patients as it is sincerely appreciated.

Dr Ashraf was very reassuring. He went through the MRI and explained the areas that were problematic. He took his time, answered all my questions, addressed any concerns I had, and reassured me that my situation was not an emergency. He suggested alternatives to surgery, and see how that goes for a month.

I feel Dr. Ashraf displayed a genuine and heartfelt concern for my health. His diagnosis of my injury, and explanation of necessary corective procedures were presented in a manner that was easy to comprehend.

As a case manager I have found that Comprehensive Spine is a breeze to work with! The office staff is extremely helpful, efficient, and responsive to the case managers’ and patients’ needs alike; appointments are flexible, plus they make every effort to accommodate the case managers when unexpected conflicts arise. The staff always makes a note in the patient’s computerized file when a case manager is expected to attend a visit and will call to notify the case manager if the client arrives early and wait for the case manager to arrive. Dictation is always immediately available at the conclusion of each visit. Spine surgeons Drs. Rafael Levin and Nomaan Ashraf are superb surgeons affiliated with highly-rated Hackensack University Medical Center as well as their sister facility, Hackensack North (formerly Pascack Valley) in Westwood, NJ. Both physicians have an excellent understanding of workers’ comp and make every effort to assist case managers in addressing all aspects of the claim while attending to all of the clients’ needs with a superior level of expertise, empathy and professionalism. There is also a pain management specialist within the practice, Dr. Jonathan Lester, who can assist clients with their pain management needs as well as perform EMGs and epidural injections. In addition, there is a physical therapist located in the Emerson office location who can provide PT services to clients. Due to their expertise and positive outcomes as well as the ease in working with the office, I have referred many clients to Comprehensive Spine for treatment and plan to continue to do so in the future.

Thank you to everyone at Comprehensive Spine for being so wonderful

FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE MADE ON THEAT FIRST PHONE CALL TO THE OFFICE AND THE RECEPTION STAFF COULD NOT BE MORE COURTEOUS AND HELPFUL. VISITS WERE QUICK AND PRODUCTIVE WITHOUT A 30 MINUTE WAIT IN THE WAITING ROOM. DR. LEVIN AND HIS NURSE ARE COMPASSIONATE AND UNDERSTANDING AND I WAS ABLE TO SET MY OWN TIMELINE FOR RETURNING FOR TO WITHIN THE TIME ALLOWED FOR MY PARTICULAR PROCEDURE.

-Anonymous

I have been having severe pain and functional limitations on a daily basis. Dr Levin has done more than any other person I have ever met to go out of his way treating me and to help find other appropriate health care providers suitable to my needs. Many MDs are in a rush and give the impression that they themselves have never experienced the pain you yourself are experiencing so they are incapable of empathizing. Dr. Levin is empathetic, caring, available, and patient and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

-Anonymous

The office staff at Comprehensive Spine Care realizes the importance of Case Managers and has dedicated professional staff members who are efficient and courteous. There is a quick turnaround for appointment scheduling as well as a shorter waiting time for surgical scheduling. The appointments are given appropriate time blocks and the office wait time is minimal.

The physicians are knowledgeable in the workers compensation process and strive to develop a working rapport with the claimant and case manager. They are always available to meet and answer any questions about a claim. The return time on work status/quick notes is immediate and the office notes are faxed the next day.

I THINK DR. ASHRAF IS AMAZING AND HAS SUCH A CARING AND WARM BEDSIDE MANNER. HE TAKES THE TIME TO EXPLAIN THE PROBLEM AND THE REMEDY. HE TAKES THE TIME TO LISTEN TO THE PATIENT AND MAKES THE PATIENT FEEL IMPORTANT.

-Anonymous

Dr. Levin explained the procedure in detail and in such a way that I had a clear understanding of my issues and what to expect. I liked that he performed the dictation of his notes while I was present in case I had any questions or additions. I was happy that he offered me the option for a less invasive procedure that had not been offered to me with other doctors.

-Anonymous

I was fortunate to have Dr. Levin treat my low back injury, first conservatively, and ultimately with successful minimally invasive spine surgery. I am significantly improved functionally, and my pain level is dramatically reduced thanks to Dr. Levin. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
