What People Say About Dr. Alok Gopal, MD

I'm not a big fan of doctors due to a couple of severely incompetent things done to me by doctors. And in looking for a pain management practice that actually does good, I went to several others before coming to NSPC. Not one of the practices I saw previous to seeing Dr. Gopal ever did me any good at all. I was only asking for the ability to function on a somewhat normal level, and received no help until my first visit to NSPC and Dr. Gopal and staff. On the first visit I knew I had found what I was looking for. I've been able to function with some normalcy ever since then, and I am grateful for that. I highly recommend these doctors. They're very skilled and not pretentious.

Dr. Gopal is not interested in fully evaluating the possible underlying causes. His evaluations always end with a recommendation for injections. He does not listen. I saw the PA last, and she went to consult him. Gopal did not come into the room to evaluate or ask any questions, but he overturned her evaluation and recommended an injection, claiming prior surgery left scar tissue. I told the PA this problem was before surgery and had not gotten better. Injections $ seems to be all he knows.

Compassionate, genuinely wants to help even if it means an outside referral. Very knowledgable and smart enough to say that he doesn't know, but will try to find an answer. It's true that some of the procedures are very uncomfortable, but Dr. Gopal tries his best to warn you when a stick and burn are coming; and then he is very comforting... will pat my arm and ask okay? The technician is pleasant and professional. Office staff are very friendly, pleasant, and helpful.
