Review of Dr. Paracha

-Ofallon |

Dr. Paracha is a goon that works for the workers comp companies. He only cares about "selling" you on spine stimulators so he can get a commission on them. He does not care how much pain you are in and has no human compassion. I would refuse to see this Dr. if you are sent to him.

Review of Dr. Paracha

- in St. Louis, MO |

He listens at the first appointment. At that point in time if he doesn’t understand your condition his attention quickly dissipates. Didn’t offer any additional physical medical treatment or test after a visit to the emergency room. After he only completed one of the two referrals this patient was stuck between two diagnosis. One of which was CRPS

Review of Dr. Spinks

-Saint Louis, MO |

Dr. Spinks is pleasant but disorganized. Another pain Dr was wonderful and I barely used pain meds. Spinks was not the same. In 2.5 months I was only given trigger point injections and tons of pain meds. My recs were not obtained and didn’t listen when I told him I needed blocks. Finally scheduled and they cancel twice, then push out 2 weeks again. Staff is rude, not empathetic, unprofessional, discuss other patients openly and make fun of them, can only leave a voicemail and never return calls

Review of Dr. Spinks

-St Louis, MO |

Getting an appointment was very easy. However, they will charge you over $300 for a drug test. Be sure and check with your insurance company first - it is not a covered test.

Review of Dr. Spinks

-Cape Girardeau, MO |

He is under the guise of a,pain management specialists. He thinks of himself before the patient, very cocky and not at ALL concerned about how his decisions effect the patients quality of life. He is unethical and more concerned about the green in his pockets than his patients. The war on drugs biggest casualty are chronic patients. Are there drug seekers, Absolutely!!!! However it is NOT all of us! I was told something different every appt, no consistency at all! It is poorly run! RUn from him!

Review of Dr. Donnelly

- in Seabrook, TX |

I met Dr Donnelly this last weekend of August while my best buddy Brad Atcheson was under her wonderful care. She is truly a beautiful person and doctor. Brad was hurt very badly such that it was touchy that he may not even survive. She was so kind and sensitive to the anxiety we were all feeling and it was so obvious that she truly cared not only for Brad but also for his wife and the rest of us friends and family. Thankfully Brad will recover. God bless Dr Donnelly, she is the best!

Review of Dr. Burke

- in Maryland Heights, MO |

Too many orthopedic surgeries over the years for me to count, but this was a first: a personal, but professional, conversation with an anesthesiologist! It was my first time as a patient at Barnes and both incidents were impressive. There's always anxiety pre-op, but Dr Burke erased any concerns I had. He thoroughly explained what he would be doing before and during the surgery and emphasized he would be present and along side me while I was asleep. I wish he could be made aware of my thanks!
