I made a comment about being in pain and he said he couldn't help me. Strange, I could have sworn he was a pain mgmt dr. Don't waste your time with this a-hole. No bedside manner, just a huge ego. Oh and the waiting room...kinda dirty, ripped furniture, and always a very interesting mix of characters. If you are just pain normal, you don't belong here, you won't fit in.

Extremely unprofessional Dr. Very bad bedside manner, my medical needs were disregarded. Would not recommend. I was there for 4 hours.

I recently began to seek a different Dr. for my pain management needs. I was a patient of Dr.Oruenes' for about 3 years and had always dreaded my monthly appointments. The wait was ALWAYS at least 2 and a half hours long and to top of that, Dr. Oruene is very arrogant and cocky! He treats his patients like their just a number and has a horrible, uncaring bedside manner. But what really took the cake is when I ran across Dr. Oruenes' pic and profile on POF!!! So unprofessional! No Thanks..
