Review for Dr. Gallentine

I was so scared to have a steroid shot for my hip and spine but Dr Razdan explained the entire procedure, what was in the shot, etc., leaving me pleasantly surprised when I felt only one minor needle stick with very little pain. I would recommend him highly. He truly is a painfree doctor.

Terrible! He stares at the computer when you ask questions and dismisses any side affects you are having by saying he has never heard of anyone having that problem. He just doesn't care about the patient just results. His nurses are rude on the phone.
