"My initial introduction to this practice really set the
for the rest of the experience. The office staff are rude and obviously very unhappy." During my meeting with the physician, I was interrupted and told that it was his time to talk. I was then scheduled for an epidural steroid injection without discussion of any other options. I was scheduled for a 8:30 am procedure. When I arrived I noted that the time of the procedure on the face sheet was 10:30 am. When I asked about the discrepancy the staff outright lied to me. What I learned was that the doctor has all the patients come in at one time and then he works through them. I was there for 2+ hours waiting. I felt like it was a shooting gallery and we were just a herd of people to this doc. I found the whole experience to be extremely disrespectful and that they have obviously have forgotten that I was paying the bill. Find another doctor!!

"I found him through word of mouth and was able to fit me in on the same day, He stayed open till I got off after work and was very accommodating. It was a phenomenal" experience and the follow up and post treatment was fantastic. They were able to work around my schedule and h is prices are extremely fair and reasonable.

Pain management

Pain management typically falls into two different categories, acute or chronic. There are basically three ways to manage chronic pain: medically, psychologically and through alternative therapy.

If you have a sudden onset of pain or if the pain has occurred after an injury, you may want to visit your physician for an evaluation. (Photo by Karen Geswein)

I apologize, but that would fall under our Pain Management category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.

Hi,

This is Kyle K from Member Care. I'm happy to help!

I looked through our database to find providers to assist you, but I'm sorry to say we don't currently have options in your area.
 
We like to offer members at least three options for their projects, so when this happens we are happy to offer the services of our Local Research Department. They will search outside of our database to track down some options for you. Because these providers won't be rated by members, it will be difficult to determine intangibles like reliability, price, expertise and other things that can be found on member reviews. However, we want to help you find a place to start with your project. Please allow a couple of business days for them to follow up with their findings.

I made an appointment with Dr.
San Rafael Pain Management Doctors Provider Name Locked
's PA several weeks ago. It took that long to get in. I brought in all my records, xrays and medication list. The PA was terrible. He had no compassion or sympathy at all. He gave me a quick once over and ordered an MRI and said to come back in a month and go over the results. I told him I was in excruciating, debilitating pain and at this point I have no life, and asked him what to do for pain in the meantime. He told me to take advil. Seriously? Like I hadn't thought of that??? How long did you go to school so you could tell me to take advil? Not to mention that I'd already told him I had taken tons of it and it wasn't helping. He said, " sometimes there is nothing we can do until we get the MRI". And that's the way he left me, in pain and in tears. So he didn't listen to me, didn't seem to care of have any empathy at all, wasn't at all interested in other factors that could be contributing to this, gave me no reassurance or help of any kind, and nothing to help me get out of pain.
I told the desk that I didn't want to see the PA again because he was a jerk, that I wanted to schedule with Dr.

. Now my appointment is 6 weeks from today and I get to try to figure out how to live and deal with the pain and still try to work and take care of my family in the meantime. Thanks a heap! When I finally do see Dr.

cannot read a MRI or CT scan or the CPN either. Have failed to address pain issues. Dr.

gets by on personality but lacks the basic understanding and skill needed to treat anything complex. Likes to run up the tab with TPI shots and sends you in circles. Most injuries get better on their own, if you have serious problems avoid this Dr.

Never even made apt. Called and Very friendly staff told me that they would prescribe Meds as doctor decided as usual. Called primary to get referral and their office told her that they do Not prescribe pain meds at all. I am doing physical therapy and have had everything possible done to help. Need pain meds in order to walk. I have broken rods and screws in back as well as Multiple Sclerosis . I am not an addict and I am more then willing to work with the doctor to get the right Combo to ease the pain. The person on the phone evidently doesn't know what the office does or does not do. But they tried to be helpful so they would probably would be nice to people who only need procedures done. Very nice on phone and they tried to be helpful.

My husband goes to him every three months for injections in his back. I have never met the doctor because his office is kind of small and the rooms are kind of small. They will only let the patient and one other person go back to the rooms so our daughter always goes back with my husband because she can remember things better than I can. She says she likes him and that he is nice and talks to them and explains everything. I was asking her about him. The treatment that he is doing is working. After he gets an injection my husband seems to be able to move, after a couple of days, easier and better. They set up his next appointment when we finish the current one. Everything has been fine so far. The office environment is fine. We always have to wait an hour or so because he has all of these injections set up for Thursday. After they have been given the injection, they have to wait a few minutes before they can get up and leave. It always takes us a while. We are always gone half a day because we have to drive 30-45 minutes to get to his office. It is probably not his fault because of the type of medicine he practices. It is not something that can be rushed when they go to

He is also the director of the emergency room of the Ash Down, Arkansas hospital. He has advised me on books to read and exercise. He told me if I did not walk everyday that he would be able to tell at the next visit so he is not one of those doctors who just writes out prescriptions and sends me on my way. He really wants to see me be pro-active and make things better for myself and get off the medications. He is very kind and offers more information than any other doctor I have ever had. It is always in and out with every other doctor other than my primary care physician. He is very good and is the best doctor I have ever been to. There is one lady in particular that is horrible. The rest are very kind, but I always end up having to deal with this one lady.

When I asked Dr.

In fact, he billed my insurance.
In addition, I had to pay all other expenses to repair the damage.
