Dr. Cherrick is talented, devoted to relieving pain and insightful. It may be hard to get an appointment, but that is because he is in demand. He may seem brusque but if you ask him to slow down because you have more questions or you do not understand , he will turn on a dime and return his focus to you. Note: National Spine and Pain has a rigorous accountability standard for Rx meds, soif you are drug shopping, you had best keep looking.

Was a patient of Cherricks and then took mom in law. Left his practice because his nurse at the time...but he had the audacity to send me a letter of discharge! Could not talk my elderly mom in law into leaving because she became addicted to the charm he put forth and the pain meds he gave her. By the time we got her to leave and see another doctor it was too late. She died believing all of those pain meds were her salvation...not wanting physical therapy, etc.??

The first two years were fine. The office staff have been kind, understanding and efficient. Saw him for my annual visit with the the doctor on Tuesday. I was in a LOT of pain. Out of nowhere, he verbally attacks me like a pit bull. Repeatedly, he displayed the temperament of a bad two year old who needed discipline. Then, he plays the victim. Nothing was wrong! All of his staff was mad at him for making me sob for 20 min. As an adult woman I demand to be treated with respect at ALL times.

I like Dr. C personality and care-wise, on the rare event I can actually get in for an appointment. After years with him I'm giving up this practice after waiting 3 months to get in with acute, acute pain. Now I can't get a call back regarding test results, which is holding up my care even more. Time for a new doc.

First office visit with Dr. Cherrick and and his assistant was enjoyable and made you feel comfortable about being there, but was there to get the source of the problem.

I,ve had mulipy complications, and was put on all sorts of weird drugs. I,ve seen him for Two months now and He is a for real a comprehensive DR...the reason some people need to see him is most Dr,s will foccus on ONE problem, they cannot comprehend multiple injuries; thus I highly recommend to anyone that has more than one serious ailment ; most Dr,s just push u off, he is highly recommend!! Linda Levi I already have more confidence than I,ve had in years of being pushed around, Thank

This doctor is awesome: High energy personable care; very intelligent; extremely funny; when the office visit is over you'll feel you've got a powerful ally in your corner. I ran into a woman there I've known at my office for almost ten years...she said I've picked a very good place and added that she'd experienced pain for most of her life and now it's almost completely gone. And his PA Sarah is also AWESOME. She's really in the right business with her caring listening talents.
