Pain Management Treatment reviews in Norfolk

  • They charge for EVERYTHING, they wanted $100 to fill out a one page form that would allow me to return to work.  Have heard other horror stories about patients being dropped for getting medical services done by other facilities.  They operate to earn money as their number one priority.  There are other good physiatrists in the area, stay away.

  • She is very good. I called Dr. Nock and within two minutes, she knew what was wrong and she referred me to a physical therapist. She also treated my husband, who had something wrong with his knee. I would recommend her.

  • I'm having physical therapy for my knees and neck. Annie is my therapist. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable and friendly, A client at Innovative gets attention from the physical therapist for the entire hour; one is not turned over to a and quot;helperand quot; for any part of the treatment. Innovative is first class all the way.

  • Everyone in the office has been very friendly and helpful.  They did a thorough examination and presented me with a treatment plan that I have started to follow.  Their office provides not only chiropractic adjustments, but also physical therapy and deep tissue massage therapy so the treatment plan can include all three of those elements is more comprehensive than what I was expecting.  The goal of my treatment plan is to reduce chronic pain, increase my range of motion and improve my general health.  I have only had a few appts. to date, but so far, I am very pleased.

  • I first saw Dr. Barr in December 2007 and last saw her in December 2009. In between, I mostly saw her Physician's Assistant, who was a wonderful caregiver and allowed me to be a partner in my own treatment plan. Dr. Barr, however, works on the "Doctor Knows Best" model; she seemed to have formed a perception of me at my first visit and to be unwilling to revise this perception later, despite the new diagnosis with this connective tissue disorder and its implications in my care.

    The first treatment Dr. Barr tried was a series of injections in the joints in my neck. This was very scary for me, but it did help my pain for a few months. She told me that, if this helped, we could do it up to 3 or 4 times per year. When I asked for this treatment two years later, Dr. Barr refused, demanding that I lose 50 pounds first.

    In 2008, I was experiencing severe pain in my thumb joints. My orthopedist ordered physical therapy for my hands, instructing me to take the x-ray and MRI results to Dr. Barr's office. Dr. Barr dismissed these, saying "I can't do anything with this. I don't know anything about hands." I just had to live with the pain in my hands. In 2009, her PA tried to treat the pain in my hands with injections; shortly thereafter, she suddenly left the practice.

    Over the summer of 2008, I underwent prolotherapy at Dr. Barr's recommendation. This was the most miserable experience I ever had, with inflammation and infection occurring throughout my body for 9 months following the prolo treatments. During and after the treatments, my pain levels did not lessen; in fact, they increased. In a September 2008 appointment, I brought charts about my pain, demonstrating the areas that hurt and the activities that hurt or helped. The PA said, "But I thought you were doing so much better!" I replied, "I don't know how anybody could possibly think that!" She reviewed everything I'd brought with me, and we discussed a different -- and more effective -- treatment plan.

    At my last visit, Dr. Barr asked me to consider taking disability leave from my job. I thought about it, and I scheduled an appointment to see her in January 2010 to kick off the disability application process. She had her assistant call me on the day of the appointment and say, "Dr. Barr says she cannot do anything for you." The assistant told me Dr. Barr had canceled the appointment and refused to see me. I felt crushed. I found a new pain management specialist whom I first saw in March 2010. I was unable to take desperately-needed disability leave until August, after establishing a relationship with my new doctor.

    If you are comfortable with a doctor who is strong-minded, speaks with authority, and practices the "Doctor Knows Best" model, then you may be perfectly happy with Dr. Barr. For myself, I expect my doctors to treat me with dignity and respect, to allow me to ask questions and openly discuss treatment options, and generally to allow me to be a partner in my care and treatment.

  • She did a poor job of it. She lacks compassion and she is very cold and she does not want to work with "cancer pain".
