“Pany Nazari is a highly trained, highly skilled, competent and interested medical professional who specializes in pelvic floor health and function. I recommend her services for women and men of all ages and capacities. I am a 70-year-old female powerlifter holding world records in deadlift, squat, bench press, and strict curl, and require a well-trained, functional body to continue excelling in this sport. Pany has worked with me on correcting and maintaining abdominal and pelvic health and function so that I can continue to stand tall and lift without pain; she is an integral part of my support team.” — K.H.
“I’m so very pleased with the quick progress I’ve made under Dr. Nazari’s expertise. I’d heard she was the best, and indeed it is true. After four years of desperately seeking relief from several different doctors for chronic constipation, nocturia, and bladder leaks, I’m now living a better life. It was so frustrating to continually be told “just drink more water, eat more fiber, it’s part of post-menopausal aging,” to say nothing of two horrible rounds with Linzess (some of the most awful weeks I’ve ever endured). I’ve been very conscientious about doing the daily PT exercises that Dr. Nazari prescribed, and since the second week, I’ve achieved dependable morning BMs. No more Dulcolax, Fleet suppositories, Miralax, Metamucil or dreadful Linzess. My problem seems not to be IBS-C, but rather uncoordinated and tight muscles, as well as an imbalance of some strong/some weak muscles. And PT exercises and biofeedback has been the long-sought answer. Regarding my nocturia, sleeping through the night without having to wake for the bathroom is now my new normal. It feels so incredible to get 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep, after several years of getting only 4-5 hours total every night when I couldn’t fall back to sleep after the bathroom. Regarding daytime bladder problems, I’ve gone from daily leaks and accidents to just the occasional drip. I realize that pelvic floor muscles can take 2-3 months to respond and strengthen, and I’m confident that as I continue Dr. Nazari’s exercises, I will enjoy the same success I’ve achieved regarding the constipation and nocturia. Dr. Nazari’s treatment has been a blessing, and has absolutely improved my quality of life.” — C.S.
“Pany Nazari came highly recommended from a friend for good reason. She is absolutely amazing and her passion and knowledge is clear. I got pregnant with baby two only three months postpartum. My OBGYN said it was unnecessary to see a PT at this point since I am pregnant, however, I visited Pany Nazari and she has vastly improved what other doctors told me was “normal” (stress incontinence, vaginal pressure with subsequent pregnancies.) She did an internal exam on me, also had me do kegels using an ultrasound, and taught me how to do them correctly. I feel like I will be back to normal if I continue working with her and after I recover from this second pregnancy. She has empowered me to improve and is proactive in helping me go back to normal. Pany is out of network with my insurance, which has limited how often I can see her. However, I think the time spent with her is more valuable and money well spent since this is my health and future well-being. I believe she is more beneficial than other therapists out there and so I continue to see her.” — K.R.
“Thank you for solving my hip pain in such a miraculous way with the exercises and shoe lifts – thank you for healing me! I will always be grateful.” — M.L.
“As you recall you helped me recover from an ankle fracture. Well, we did Mt. Kilimanjaro and I successfully made it to the summit and back. Just wanted to say thank you and let you know of that success!” — D.M.
“Thank you so much for your time today and each time that I have come. Your warmth, connection, and healing hands and spirit are truly a blessing.” — E.D.
“Meeting you and working with you ultimately motivated me to continue pursuing goals that were slipping through my fingers. There is more work and I am grateful for what you have provided not only in expertise but also moral support. That gift is priceless. I will celebrate that I am beyond taking care of my basic daily needs and that I get the privilege to access superb medical care. Thank you for your efforts and I am grateful. Time to move and pay it forward. I am at peace. THANK YOU!” — L.R.
“Pany has been a wonderful and knowledgeable resource for me. I thought I had to live with constant leakage every time I sneezed (not fun!), but Pany set me straight! She provided me with exercises and strategies to strengthen my muscles and it’s given me lots of confidence to move through my day.” — J.T.
“I feel better physically and mentally. The work you did on my hip and leg and groin has lessened the discomfort. I truly appreciate your caring and kindness to me. And terrific and comprehensive knowledge level and experience.” — S.F.
“I wanted to let you know that I am feeling really well! I actually completed my race last week and had NO PAIN (!!!) for 50 miles. Even afterwards I had no incisional or referred labial pain.” — J.D.
“My Europe trip was all around great, including from a pain perspective. I walked 6+ hours a day and didn’t have any pain and no issues at all. Thanks for all of the help! I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do a long flight and then days of walking without pain a month or so ago.” — R.H.
“Whatever you did today to my back and hip was unbelievable. As soon as I started walking I realized there was no more pain on that side. I didn’t even know that I had pain and restriction of movement until you freed it. Thank you so much. It is such a relief.” — B.P.
“Before being referred to Dr. Nazari by my new doctor, I had suffered from chronically recurring pelvic burning and urinary frequency/urgency for almost 15 years… going undiagnosed or misdiagnosed throughout this time. I received inconclusive tests, unnecessary antibiotics, and no resolution from gynecologists, urologists, primary care physicians, and urgent care doctors throughout much of my adulthood. This was expensive in terms of monetary costs, lost productivity, emotional wear and tear, and disruption of vacations and special events. The “burning” unfortunately became a familiar and expected way of life. After 3 to 4 months of pelvic floor physical therapy with Pany, my symptoms have improved to a remarkable degree. Pany’s rates are fair, she is compassionate, she teaches you self-help strategies to augment her therapies, and most of all, her treatments work. I hope that more patients and more referring physicians become aware of Pany’s services and talents.” — E.C.
“Thank you so much for your mail and the exercises. It was wonderful to meet you. You have given me so many really meaningful insights that will help to carry me in the years to come! The visual cues really helped and I feel I have a much better understanding now of how my body works and what is causing the pain. Most of all you have given me hope: that I still have a life ahead of me and that I don’t have to think more surgery is the only solution. Thank you, thank, thank you!” — M.S.
Update from above patient, who visited Dr. Nazari for just one session while visiting D.C. from South Africa: “A quick note to let you know how much I am still drawing on my single session with you. In particular, the way in which you enabled me to visualise how the muscles contract has been amazing. I am doing the exercises you gave me and feel a lot stronger, with much less pain. Thank you for those precious 90 minutes you dedicated to my problem – it has been amazing!”
“I’m doing soooo much better! Almost all my pelvic pain is gone and my hip pain. All I have is just some pain when I try to push something out of the way with my leg. But honestly I’m so amazed and happy with the improvements and I can’t thank you enough for all your wonderful work! Definitely wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. I finally feel like I have my life back. P.S. I just got back from a trip to Maine and went on a hike at Acadia and a five mile walking tour the day before in Portland with no pain!” — L.S.
“Dr. Nazari is so compassionate, caring, & knowledgeable & she takes the time to explain everything; I am a person who is very anxious at Dr’s visits — but Dr. Nazari put me completely at ease. Most importantly, she has helped me to start making changes to improve a VERY distressing situation. I HIGHLY recommend her! She truly is wonderful.” — S.R.
“Dr. Nazari was amazing! She got me better in 2 visits! She is super talented!” — L.P.
