Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have seen him often for back and leg pain. He has treated me with injections without any ill effects and very helpful to treat my pain. He is an excellent physician with an outstanding bedside personality. The negative reviews are unjustified and inaccurate.

Wait time for my appt was over an hr. Then he refused to treat me without an MRI even though insurance continued to deny it... all the while I am in pain. When they finally scheduled me for injections they did not tell me I couldn't be on antibiotics so then my procedure had to be re-scheduled and pushed yet again. When I showed up for that appt I was told I should have gotten a phone call as they had to cancel all his appts that day.... still waiting. 2 days of work missed and no relief found.

As many pain management doctors are, this doctor is injection happy. He injected without getting imaging... little did he know he injected and caused serious issues with something that was there. Not to mention they should change the name of their "palliative care" center to cancer pain center because they dont take on patients with other SERIOUS conditions besides cancer no matter how much they preach how important palliative care is.
