Pain Management Doctor Ammar Alamarie’s Biography

With board certifications in both anesthesiology and pain management, Dr. Ammar Alamarie brings a high level of expertise to his physician-run practice. A native of Queens, New York, Dr. Alamarie attended Ross University School of Medicine, graduating with high honors, before completing his residency at SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York and working at the prestigious Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in New Jersey. He brings over a decade of experience in the medical field.

“I am a patient advocate”

As a physician, Dr. Alamarie’s goal is to provide high-quality care with price transparency. Because he is the sole proprietor of his practice, Dr. Alamarie says the medical process, ranging from making an initial appointment to diagnostics and treatment, is streamlined and efficient — there are no hidden fees, he says.

Dr. Alamarie entered the field of medicine after witnessing family members being mistreated for their own struggles with chronic pain. His grandmother suffered from severe rheumatoid arthritis, and his grandfather died from overdose of prescription medication while battling prostate cancer. These experiences shaped the way Dr. Alamarie viewed medicine and made him want to pursue the field to improve diagnostics and treatment.

“I am a patient advocate,” he says. Dr. Alamarie specializes in a range of issues, including neck pain, sports injuries, thoracic pain, upper back pain, knee pain, lower back pain, opioid and non opioid pharmalogical management.

Dr. Alamarie uses a comprehensive approach and tailors treatments to the specific condition and the patients’ requests, whether he’ll recommend surgery, a chiropractor, physical therapy, medication or a combination. Above all, Dr. Alamarie brings honesty and expertise to his practice and says, “I will tailor to the patient’s specific condition by taking a detailed history and physical exam, and using the appropriate diagnostic tools when necessary.”

Dr. Alamarie actively teaches Anesthesiologists who are taking the certification exam. He is an Oral Board instructor for physicians who are taking the American Board of Anesthesiology exam and wants to assure his colleagues are experts like him in the field and are practicing quality evidence base medicine.

Dr Alamarie and his staff are the best! I would recommend this office to anyone who has pain, and would like great care. Dr. Alamarie was very thorough and took time to explain things to me. My experience was excellent!
Dr Alamarie is a terrific Dr and is always very concerned about how I am feeling. He has done numerous spinal injections on me and has NEVER hurt me. I have had injections at other places and they told me “I’m gonna blow your foot off” and it did feel that way. The way He puts the medicine into my spine they always work wonders on me. I am a 4 time spinal surgery veteran and have never had a Dr that was so caring that he is hurting me and is constantly asking me when he does my injections if I’m ok. If you are looking for a Pain Management Dr look no further than Dr Ammar Alamarie!
He has been managing my pain for 2 years. I am able to stand longer in church and play with my grandkids. Thanks Dr. A!
Dr. Alamarie eliminated the back pain that made my life miserable. He listens to you, explains what he will do, and his staff is outstanding. I finally went to the place that has made my life 100% better!
I only have great things to say about Dr Alamarie. He always has a plan to help me manage my pain. I am allergic to most meds. He was able to have my insurance approve therapy for my neck.
Dr. Alamarie is phenomenal. He spends a lot of time with his patients to really understand the issues and recommend appropriate care. The office has onsite ability to provide steroid injections for spinal issues, which saves a ton of money and time versus going to the hospital for treatment. The staff is very helpful, attentive and responsive. I could not recommend this office more.
Dr. Alamarie is a gracious and considerate doctor who genuinely cares about the individual he is treating. He is trying to help me with a health issue that I have had for many years that most doctors ignored. I truly believe he is a wonderful doctor that loves his patients experience better health.
I saw Dr Alamarie after seeing a couple of pain doctors in town. They kept me on medications and my right foot was getting weaker. I was told by them “use your cane”. Dr Alamarie took the time to make sure my insurance approved my MRI lumbar. I needed to have surgery and I am blessed that he sent me to get back surgery. The spine surgeon told me if I held off surgery any longer I would have had permanent weakness. Dr. Alamarie is honest and I would recommend him to my friends and family!
Dr. Alamarie is an amazing doctor. He is all about patient care. He and the staff are awesome. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a pain specialist.
Dr. Alamarie and his staff was very personable and professional making my experience very comforting. Thank you!
Dr. Alamarie and his staff are phenomenal. I’ve had major spine surgeries involving multiple rods and screws in my lower spine. I’ve dealt with Scoliosis for years as well. Dr. Alamarie listens and comes up with an ideal treatment plan for you. His goal is to help relieve your chronic pain. I am very happy with all they have done for me and would gladly recommend them.
Dr. Almarie is very attentive and helpful for anyone who is suffering. He made me extremely comfortable and explained my case thoroughly to me.
Doctor is awesome! He listens to you and my back injection gave me instant pain relief. The place is super clean and staff is friendly. I would definitely recommend this place!
Doctor Alamarie is a great physician, a professional: not only because he knows what he is doing, and get great results to a patient problems, but also he has such a jovial personality and this ability to make anyone feel comfortable: he knows how to approach a patient, his calm assurance, his way to communicate with you, its clear explanations make one feels confident and positive. A trustworthy doctor.
Great doctor and staff and a much more pleasant experience than many places I’ve been. Glad to have found Dr. Alamarie.
I would recommend Dr. Alamarie to anyone experiencing pain. I feel the fact that he is an Anesthesiologist makes him even better equipped to help with pain management. He listens and is genuinely concerned about helping you find healthy relief. He has really helped me with migraine headaches. The office staff is also very kind!
I came to Dr. Alamarie in severe pain. I was in tears almost every day after leaving work and walking to my car. I had been told about my only option left was a fusion but I did not want that. Dr. Alamarie listened to me and offered options. Two months later I am having minimal to no pain most days. No surgery and no opiates. He is compassionate and knows how to listen. I am forever grateful.
I relocated from out of state and was very nervous about seeing/finding a new doctor here. I was able to get in right away! Where I lived before it could take months to see a Pain specialist. Dr. Alamarie has wonderful bedside manner and was thorough in his questions and examination. His staff was helpful and patient as well.
Excellent practice! Love the doctor and staff!
I was referred to Dr. Alamarie for pain management. This was my first time seeing a doctor for this. I am so thankful to have such an understanding and compassionate doctor who actually listens to what I am saying. He has worked diligently to find the root of my pain.
Like everyone at the office. And the procedure worked.
Excellent experience. Great pain care and a lot of other treatments are offered. Dr Alamarie always was attentive and caring! He helped my back pain. A++
Dr Alamarie and staff are professional and personable. I was treated with respect and listened to. Recommend to any one needing relief from pain. His treatments have improved the quality of my life.
Dr. Alamarie and his staff are super nice and professional. I always feel at ease when I when I need to go in. Dr. Alamarie is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his work. He has helped me regain my independence and I have even been able to significantly decrease my medications.
Dr. Alamarie and his staff are very caring. My back pain has improved since the start of treatment. They have been God Send. Before I went to their clinic I couldn’t walk and my left leg was killing me. Now I am back at work. Dr.A is a pain specialist with great skills!. I highly recommend him!
I have dealt with many pain offices around Charlotte trying to find help and I have only been offered medications that cover up the pain and been referred to surgeons. Not only have I had the best experience overall with Southern Pain and Spine (the staff are so nice), but Dr. Alamarie actually understands what is causing my pain and has offered me options to eliminate my pain instead of cover up the symptoms.
I have been getting treatment for pain for over 30 years, and Dr. Alamarie is the best pain doctor I have ever seen! He takes the time to listen and explain to you where your pain is coming from and how he can treat it. He gets to the root of your problem versus masking the pain through injections and steroid treatments. He treats the real issue and gives you genuine relief. In addition, the office staff is so courteous and professional. They are truly a kind and friendly team!
Great experience! Dr Alamarie is very professional. He got rid of my sciatica. Highly recommend him and his staff!
I felt defeated because my cervical surgery did not alleviate all of my pain and I felt helpless that anything would. Then I went to Southern Pain and Spine and met Dr. A. We treated my pain in several different ways and slowly I began to feel normal again. I was so surprised when I could move my neck left to right and up and down with greater range of mobility and less pain. I am forever grateful.
My experience with Southern Pain and Spine Specialists has been outstanding. I have had chronic neck and back pain for over 12 years following cervical spine and low back surgeries. My condition was properly diagnosed and an effective treatment plan was created for me. My chronic pain has never been managed this well!
Both Dr Alamarie And the staff are very friendly and concerned about their patients. They go above and beyond to take care of their patients. . I was able to come in for a visit the same day I called. I have a lot of pain relief now and glad I will be able to sleep better. It is also affordable and there is no hospital fees. I was recently laid off because of COVID and needed treatment for my back and knee pain. Highly recommend Southern Pain and Spine!
I had a great experience at Southern Pain and Spine. The doctor took the time to listen to my symptoms and his treatment plan helped. Other docs told me to keep stretching. I am glad my friend recommended Southern Pain and Spine. I highly recommend the staff and doc!
Highly recommend the Amazing Dr. Alamarie! He reviewed my 15 years of chronic pain and treatment as a new patient. He actually examined my spine and lower back coming up with the CORRECT treatment. Incredible experience my pain has dropped in half!!! I never expected to ever have this much relief ever again. Going to a physician run – HANDS ON – practice is the best thing I have done! Excellent care and excellent friendly staff. Office is spotless.
