Hampton, VA |
All I Can say is he listens and advises me what to do. The Injections i get He Talk through it.

I was so disappointed with his demeanor. Not personable at all. I was having nerve block injection and instead of easing into it, it was a you will feel some pressure followed by a burning sensation Inserted the seringe and plunged away. I would rather got through another vasectomy. I was in tears by the third of four injections. I have canceled my appointments and deal with the pain. I am a human being in need of treatment, not an automobile being serviced for an alignment

Despite multiple pain problems (WELL documented) he went back to lowest available dose at 2-3 times the interval designed. He either made a Medication ERROR or LIED to me saying he was Rx'ing extended release. Refused to add anything for breakthrough pain -- including POST OP! Rejected surgeon's strong advice to use liquid form (SAME DOSE). Tricare choices very limited; may HAVE to return. VERY long wait to get appts. Forgets details during appts.
This guy is absolutely horrible. He asked me the same questions twice I had already told him about. I couldn't believe this guy wasn't listening. Even though I've been in a pain clinic for 7 years and just relocated he basically told me I didn't know what I was talking about and my previous doctors were wrong. Does not use main medications but will prescribe antidepressants because they've shown possible help but he will do injections. Doesn't make $$ of prescriptions so injections will do
