I did not receive relief from my pain. I did find Dr. Ajam to be very caring seemingly, but he did not investigate any options for pain relief. I no longer go for any services. I was just wasting money.

You will never find any pain doctor better Dr. Ajam and his PA Sarah. They CARE and truly treat you as a person. They WANT to help you be in as little pain as possible. I have a special condition which they know and they always keep track of it so that they don’t cross paths with one my the other medications.Like I said: they are amazing!

Dr. Ajam is incredibly intelligent, kind, caring and compassionate. I have dealt with chronic pain for ten years. Not only did he listen and take me seriously, he immediately identified an issue previously missed/ignored by my former doctors. We are now implementing therapies to correct the issue. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Ajam. Truly a great doctor.

Dr. Ajam is an outstanding doctor; he is one of the best doctors I’ve ever had for any reason. He listens intently, carefully and thoughtfully. He is compassionate and kind. I can count on him for followup. His explanations are professional yet easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been a patient of Dr Ajam’s for approximately 8 years. Originally, He was my pain management physician at Brookstone Pain Clinic which is part of Wake Baptist Medical Center. Dr Ajam is an amazing man and Physician. It was for that reason I followed him when he went to Carolinas Pain Institute. The surroundings changed but the man didn’t. Dr. Ajam is one of the most compassionate people I know. Being a physician has not diminished that personal patient connection one bit. We all know that in too many cases one can get overly “technical” and forget that the patient is an actual person. Dr. Kamal Ajam never forgets this. You tend to think you’re his only patient. He listens. Beyond all of the human connection which is rare indeed these days, he is one fine physician. His credentials alone are enough to impress, but his actions will leave you feeling blessed to have this man in your corner. Pain Management is a contract. You hold up your end and I guarantee Dr Ajam will hold up his. During a scheduled surgery this June, Dr. Ajam’s presence was not required but at 5:30 AM, there he was coming to see me in preop and then he joined the surgical team. Came out to brief my wife and then to his clinic.I call that well above the call of duty.This is one fine physician and man.

I’ve been a chronic pain sufferer for nearly 20 years, during which time I’ve been everywhere from over drugged to under drugged by Doctors, never intentionally, just under educated in the field. I have been a pain patient with 2 pain clinics, due to an out of state job transfer, until nearly a year ago when after 12 years with the same clinic I transferred to a 3rd clinic. My new physician, Dr. Ajam truly listened and I discovered is caring, compassionate and on”top” of the latest treatments. During all the years and all the Dr’s it took to finally diagnose, then treat my illness, I have never experienced such a talented, genuinely caring physician. He goes to extra lengths to communicate and understand. He is one of a kind and I recommend him to anyone that wants to be listened to and treated, not just drugged.

I have had the opportunity to know Dr. Ajam for greater than five years. In part, this included fellowship training wherein there was direct clinical observation. Dr. Ajam has exemplified excellent professionalism, clinical judgment, and compassion. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Ajam and would trust him in providing personal family care.

Better care cannot be found. Dr. Ajam will work diligently to get to the root of your pain and if it is possible, eliminate it. If not, he will help you manage it so you can return to a human life and even flourish. Thank you, sir for the great care!

If I could rate 100 stars for Dr. Ajam and his staff, I would. Amazing! I have never had a more compassionate Doctor in my 46 years. I have Chronic pain from Pancreatitis. When I first went to Dr. Ajam, 7 years ago, I was not able to have a pain-free minute. Anyone that has chronic pain knows that any normal function, sleeping, resting, being able to be productive or have a flourishing day is impossible. I saw many Drs. desperately trying to get help to N0 avail. I consider it a blessing to have found Dr. Ajam . He listened carefully to what I had to say, even thru my tears because I was hurting so much and no one else seemed to understand. Dr. Kamal Ajam gave me hope and got me on a safe treatment plan. He is always accessible and truly cares about his patients. He has since treated my 77 year old father as well. We both highly recommend him to anyone that is suffering. He has worked miracles for both of us!!
