What patients are saying

I saw Dr Masoumi in his South Surrey Clinic. He is an extremely helpful and caring practitioner. His ability to problem solve and assist me in getting treatment for a chronic back problem was outstanding. He referred me to the Scoli Clinic in Vancouver ( I have scoliosis) where I will receive a comprehensive assessment and care plan and ongoing folowup. Before I went to him, I had no idea where to turn for help, advice or treatment of this disorder. Thank you Dr Masoumi!-
Dr.Ali Masoumi is a lifesaver. After waiting for back surgery and being rejected after 3 back injections. He was my last resort. I have seen numerous other chiropractor both before and after my injections with minimal results. Dr.Ali Masoumi has ended the pain that I have been constantly experiencing for the past 6 years.-
Dr. Masoumi is an excellent chiropractor. I had a very severe shoulder injury & was not able to do my daily activities and sleep properly during the night. After seeing him for only one session, my pain relieved to the the extent that I was able to do my daily activities & sleep during the night without noticing the pain. I am so grateful to him for his help.-
Dr. Ali Masoumi is knowledgable, helpful, friendly, humble and gets results. I experienced my all time best medical practitioners appointment last week; walked out of his office completely pain free. I'm a 50 year old road cyclist - he keeps me healthy so I can enjoy my sports, life and being fit!-
My mother was suffering from ``tennis elbow`` for almost a year. She could not sleep at nights and would usually wake up crying and feeling totally hopeless about the pain she's experiencing. She was not expecting much improvement when I took her to Dr. Masoumi for shock wave therapies; however after a few treatments she's finally relieved that it can actually be treated. She's no longer taking anti-inflammatory medications and she sleeps well now. I must thank Dr. Masoumi for his expertise and great bedside manner. Having a doctor who actually listens is very important especially for someone who has suffered a long time and wanted to grasp any opportunity to make the pains go away.-
I suffered from running related knee pain for two years before seeing Dr. Masoumi. I had seen 2 physiotherapists and a massage therapist for over 2 years with no success. I was so afraid to see a chiro from hearing other horror stories. He explained everything he was going to do and made me very comfortable. I started to feel better immediately and am only continuing to improve. After 2 years I'm finally able to run again and am not afraid of chiropractors anymore. I would highly recommend him!!!-
