Faris Abusharif, M.D.

As a practitioner of Interventional Pain Management and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (Endoscopic) my mission is to work diligently to control your pain rather than have the pain control you. A patient centered individual treatment plan is achieved through good communication and spending as much time as needed with each patient. Comprehensive and compassionate care, whether surgical or non-surgical treatment, will be delivered to exceed my patient’s expectations.
