    Janet Romasanta, DC
    .I have not going back and I am dealing with several issues that has nothing om do with her. I didn't see any staff she was the only person I saw. She was experienced and seemed to know what she was doing.

    This was my 3rd visit. I have gone longer periods of time without pain since age 40. It is more than a chiropractors adjustment, it is muscle training, which I have never been exposed to before. I have been seeing chiropractors for 60 years. The scheduled adjustments and training are leniently build to assure repetitive sessions. I would recommend anyone in any kind of pain to commit themselves to this chiropractor for alleviation of discomfort. And I speak with having much chiropractor experiences.

    Orthopedic Specialists SW FL
    Dr. Dawson has comprehensive knowledge in the treatment and rehabilitation of chronic back pain. My first visit he reviewed my medical history and records from my prior physician who had left his practice. He also did updated xrays and basically confirmed my diagnosis. I was on narcotic medication and he agreed to continue prescribing but only on the condition that I be drug tested. At first I was a bit put off but then understood this was just his doing due diligence as a physician to be sure I wasn't shopping around for drugs. It was also a protection for me as so many other patients can become addicted to prescription narcotic medicine because their doctor didn't care enough to monitor their use and control.
    Dr. Dawson takes his role very seriously, he will not just peddle drugs because you ask for them but by the same token he is concerned about pain relief so takes a reasonable and effective approach to trying multiple methods to resolve pain. The process is slow but very methodical and I can see where it makes sense. Back pain can also be felt as referred pain (location of pain different than location of source of pain) so Dr. Dawson has a very methodical process of treatment. When doing multiple injections he doesn't treat the entire area at once. He starts at one end or side of the spine and progresses so that both you and he are able to get a better fix on the cause of the pain and therefore be more effective on the treatment.
    He is gentle and considerate as the process of spinal injections and nerve blocks is not always pleasant or painless. But he and his staff are very relaxed and he is always in tune with how you are feeling so you develop a confidence and trust which aids in being more relaxed with then aids in feeling less pain and discomfort. As Dr. Dawson is determining his plan of action, he always includes me in his reasoning, gives me a sense of what to expect and the steps involved, what if any alternatives are available and then it is my decision on how to proceed. So far this is working.
    I am still in some pain as I have a chronic condition and there is no "cure" per se. But I am not in the same amount of pain as when I started. I am much more functional, I sleep better and I have more tools at my disposal to deal with the pain when it hits me the worst. I have been to physical therapy at his direction to learn new stretching exercises that do improve things. I have topical prescription ointments that I use that can give me an extra "boost" when I need to be more active. I am still on my narcotic pain medication but am still on a low dosage and with the other treatments find that it is more effective. I have a modern TENS unit that I also use that can really provide great relief.
    The support staff at this practice is also outstanding. The assistants follow up with calls after some treatments to check with you on how you are doing. If you have questions, you can call them at any time and they will either give you an answer or get in touch with Dr. Dawson to get the answer for you. When you are scheduled for injections or never blocks the support staff there are also great. They will chat with you while you are waiting, keeping you relaxed and calm and during the procedure they check in with how you are feeling. It is never "fun" having to submit to painful treatments to resolve back pain but this staff makes the process as process as pleasant as possible and is always concerned with making sure that any discomfort is minimal or resolved quickly.
    Continued pain injections are in my future along with treatments to temporarily destroy nerves. But they work, the visits now are spaced further apart and I continue to be more functional and am regaining a quality of life that was missing for a long time.
    If you have chronic pain, Dr. Dawson is the doctor to see. You will always find him attentive, he listens thoroughly to your description of pain, he asks clarifying questions and then he comes up with his assessment as to the cause of the pain and the treatment options. So far he is batting 1000 and I am glad that I have him on my side.

    Healing Hands
    Nathan is very knowledgeable, and used his massage technique, plus stretching, on my problem area. Before I left the office, he gave me instructions on doing stretching at home. Any questions I had were answered in full. Nathan also asked for notes from my chiropractor so he could better address my problem. He is very thorough, attentive, takes his time listening, and replying. I will continue using this practice for my massage therapy, as needed.

    Specific Care Chiropractic
    It was a welcoming experience to visit this office.  I received 10 adjustments so far.  It was suggested to me that massage therapy would be beneficial, so I started that.  One treatment, so far, today.  Right now it's not fair to Specific Care Chiropractic to comment on my pain since I've had only one massage.  I still have a ways to go.

    Augusthy, Dr. Reggie M
    Initially I was very impressed with Dr. Augusthy. He is very knowledgeable in his field and was able to treat my back pain and actually provide significant pain relief. He did a full complement of xrays to confirm my diagnosis and explained the problem in great detail and so that I understood exactly what was wrong and what my options were. I went for the combination of physical therapy (extensive and completed the Spine Rehab program at Lee Memorial), a change in medication and cortisone injections. As far as I was concerned Dr. Augusthy was perfect, he took time at every visit to assess my progress and answer any questions I had.
    All this changed dramatically. I had a 3 month follow up appointment and had to be out of town that day. When I called to reschedule a few weeks before the appointment, I learned that Dr. Augusthy was no longer a member of the practice. I was blown away and shocked beyond words. I was not able to get anyone in the practice to tell me what happened and where he went. It was my intention to follow him if he had moved to a new practice. To this date I still have no idea what happened to him, I never received notification or a courtesy letter advising me that he would no longer be able to treat me.
    I found this to be totally unprofessional both on his part and on Lee Memorial Hospital and the Spine Center. My primary care doctor who had referred me to Dr. Augusthy was also unable to find any information on what happened or where he went or why. Ultimately I was referred to a new pain management clinic and had my records forwarded but without the ability to know if they were fully up to date or not, I had to start back all over at the beginning and begin a new relationship. Pain Management is a tricky field and it is essential to build a trust relationship with the provider and the provider has to be comfortable with the patient in order to provide narcotic pain medicine relief. I feel I have endured months of unnecessary pain while I had to rebuild this critical doctor patient relationship. I don't know who is at fault or why Dr. Augusthy left, all I know is that as a patient, it was not handled well at all.

                   I MOVED TO SW FLORIDA FROM NEW JERSEY IN OCTOBER OF 2009, IN DOING SO I HAD TO FIND A PAIN MANAGEMENT DR TO SEE ME TO HELP WITH THE BATTLE OF THE MONSTER  RSD...I MET WITH A COUPLE OF OTHER DOCTORS AND DID NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH THEM AT ALL, THE DOCTORS I HAD MET WITH SEEMED TO BE HAPPY WITH JUST HANDING ME SCRIPTS WITH OUT CARING ABOUT WHAT I WAS GOING THROUGH ON A DAILY BASES. SO I CONTINUED TO SEARCH AND FOUND (DR. GREGORY PAINE) AND I AM SO HAPPY I CONTINUED MY SEARCH FOR A CARING, & COMPASSIONATE DOCTOR.  HE IS A DOCTOR THAT LISTENS TO WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, IS NOT RUSHING YOU OUT OF HIS OFFICES, HE EXPLAINS NEW TECHNIQUES THAT ARE IN THE WORKS OR ARE OUT THERE FOR TRIALS. HE IS A DOCTOR THAT CONTINUES HIS EDUCATION, AND THE BED SIDE MANNER IS NOT JUST WITH HIM FROM THE FRONT DOOR ALL THE WAY TO EXAM ROOM EVERY ONE IS EXTREMLY CARING AND FRIENDLY. I HAVE BEEN UNDER THEIR CARE FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS AND COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED THAT SINCE  I HAVE TOO DEAL WITH THIS MONSTER OF RSD I FEEL I AM GETTING THE BEST CARE I COULD ASK FOR.

    ABC LEARNING CENTER OF FORT MYERS
    I like the whole environment of ABC Learning Center. They are really good with the kids. The only reason we will not be using them in the future is because our daughter will be going to Kindergarten.

    Specific Care is very nice and pleasant. They seem to be very good at what they do and they solved some problems for me that have not been recurring.
