Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Reviews

"Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
was scheduled to do facet injections on the 19th but rest, ice and pain management enabled me to resume nearly normal function and the injections were postponed. I met with the Dr. the day of the injections, we discussed the situation and were both elated to be able to postpone the procedure."

"I had been having lowe back pain for several years as it increasingly gotten worse. I saw my PCP, had a MRI and was referred to Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
for treatment. I am 41yo and didn't think this was normal to be so restricted and in so much constant lower back pain. He is a bit conservative as he told me and sent me to physical therapy to see how I would do. He was clear if it didn't work for me that he would do an injection with no promises on how my pain would react to it. After 3 or 4 weeks of PT, I wasn't getting any relief at all so my therapist has a great relationship with Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
so he emailed him and his office called me within a couple of days to schedule me for an injection. I arrived at his Greenwood office and the procedure was extremely quick less than 10 minutes. Dr.

's nurse explained everything to me and escorted me to the exam room. Once Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
came into the room he did exactly what was explained to me and proceeded to do a bilateral nerve root injection of L4. It was an extremely easy procedure. He informed me it would take 3-5 days before the steroids would take affect. It was day 3 and my pain was relieved. To date I have not had any pain. I just had my 1 month follow up and he said if I have any issues to just call and he would get me right in. I am very happy with his skill level and bed side manner. Will definitely will return if necessary.

"Some time around 6/2011 my current condition worsened and I decided to visit a Pain Mgmt. doctor. I had previously been seeing my family doctor for my condition. I've got a 3-level cervical bulge and a L5/S1 lumbar bulge. I went to the appointment in hopes of getting a trigger point injection to calm my spasms down. So, not only did it take 1 month to get in, when I finally did, Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
informed me that I would NOT be getting any injections that day. He's foreign and doesnt speak english well. He just didnt seem to comprehend that I've already done conservtive treatments (phys. therapy, etc). He sent me on my way with Neurontin and a pat on the back. I receive other med's from my family doctor so it's important to not that I was NOT seeking narc's from
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
. I took my cervical MRI films and let him look. He told me "You've got a 3 level bulge, but it's not that bad". Little did I know the entire run around with Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
would be "It's not that bad".

In the meantime I did a MRI that he requested on my previously undiagnosed lumbar condition. I already knew about the c-spine condition and had MRI backup. Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
downplayed my condition telling me it "wasnt that bad". What does he know about living in my body? Nothing! I found that statement very disconcerting. Again, I would like to note that I was not seeking any medicine, just an injection. So he prescribed me more physical therapy which my longtime therapist thought was odd. She asked me, "Why would he do that when you told him you''ve done multiple rounds of phys. therapy".

So a few days after the MRI was done I receive a phone call from Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
. This idiot has the nerve to tell me that the MRI results showed a L5/S1 bulge, but it was not touching the root canal. I asked him what was causing my sciatica and numbness in my foot - His answer, "Muscular issues". He says, "You'll benefit from stretching". I cannot tell you how upset I was that I had wasted time with this fool. My
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
regional health physical therapist could not believe this. I truly feel like he had no compassion for me or my problem. I am a pretty dang tough dude - I work construction and am an outdoorsman, hiker, etc for my hobbies. Benefit from stretching! I couldnt believe it.... Do you think, Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
, that my physical therapist hasnt already told me this! Unbelieveable this guy calls himself a Physiatrist.

Dr.
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
caused me to waste time, money, and blow literally a few thousand of my insurances dollars on a total crap diagnosis. You cannot fake true back injuries - Muscle guarding is apparent to even the most naive massage therapists. Muscles don't guard unless there's an underlying problem (e.g. DISC BULGE).

I dunno if it's Dr. Chans english comprehension or is general compassion for patients, but I would never waste another dollar at

"Claudi's office is in her living room and the massage room is one of her back bedrooms. I am fine with the down-to-earthness of it; some may be put off by it. I believe Claudi is very knowledgeable about what she does. If I had any complaint, it would be that her sessions always run over time, so if you're on a tight schedule it might be a problem. We have developed a friendly relationship, and I trust her evaluation and suggestions. "

"Dr unable or unwilling to take care of injured caregiver. Skeptical and cold. No real answers given for pain caused by physical job. Sent back to work without proper rectification of problem and/or referral to a specialist. All of the staff, with the exception of one kind nurse, were
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
, rude and uncaring. The doctor was late for every single appointment... up to 1 hour late! I would guess that this is how people are treated in a poor clinic and yet these people are supposed to be taking care of the caregivers. What a sham!"

"I EXPERIENCED ABSOLUTELY EXCRUCIATING PAIN DURING THE PROCEDURE. I had entered the surgical room with hope that I would receive relief from the severe pain. Dr. Kowlowitz arrived at the surgical area in a hurry and said very few words. He began the procedure and I felt immediate pain. I remember Dr. Kowlowitz saying something like LOOK HOW INFLAMED THE NERVE IS and then, THIS MAY HURT A LITTLE. These may not have been his exact words, but they are darn close. Childbirth was a picnic compared to this type of pain. The pain from the steroid injection was so bad that I thought I would pass out. I can remember apologizing to everyone in the room because I was writhing in pain and yelling out -- I was embarrassing myself. I'm not a complainer - plain and
Indianapolis Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
. Dr. Kowlowitz repeated the process a second time treating both L4 and L5. The nurse was very sympathetic and helpful to me. Once the procedure was over, Dr. Kowlowitz left as quickly as he arrived. I was so exhausted and my leg and foot were completely numb by the time I was returned to the prep area. The nurses stayed with me for 15-20 minutes asking me to take deep breaths and checking my blood pressure. During this time Dr. Kowlowitz did not stop by to check on me. I found this odd and very disconcerting. The nurses helped me dress and took me by wheelchair to meet my husband and go home. Before I left the nurses had explained that someone would be calling me in 48 hours to check on me. NO ONE PHONED ME IN 48 HOURS. I did receive a call approximately 2 weeks after the surgery. And I just received a call 2 days ago informing me that one month had passed and was I perhaps considering another injection. I was just a little miffed when I informed them that the severe sciatic nerve pain had returned two days after the injection on January 11. NEEDLESS TO SAY, I WILL "NOT" RECEIVE ANOTHER INJECTION FROM DR.KOWLOWITZ. Since the procedure, I keep asking myself why was I subjected to such extreme pain. I can tell you that I am very disappointed, puzzled and angry with Dr. Kowlowitz's decisions and actions while treating me on January 11.

"The procedure went quickly and very smoothly. He explained everything in detail and made my wife feel very comfortable. It was

to get an appointemnt, and we did not wait long at all. His staff is first class. It is too early to tell if the procedure has worked, but we are confident he will get the issue sorted out."

"I had a pinched never in my spine and he was great. I love the fact that he started treatment which was as minimal as could be and did not suggest lavish things. We took baby steps to get a solution towards the problem and I appreciate the fact that he did it that way rather than doing spinal surgery. His office staff is nice and they got me in quickly and took care of the problem and I can?t say enough about him and his staff. "
