Great experience! The doctor and the staff helped me manage my pain and I am forever grateful. Dr Alamarie Spent a lot of time and seemed very concerned to solve the underlying issue. My neck was killing me with severe pain after surgery. I can say I am almost pain free.

I saw Dr Alamarie in Aug 2020 and really thought I found the right doctor. On my first visit, he spent about 40 mins with me. He suggested doing an ablation for my chronic pain. I told him I'd think about it. He also gave me a neck brace (charged my insurance $1500 saw it on Amazon for about $150) Later that day I received an email asking me to rate him 5 stars. I thought that was odd. A few days later, I received a notice from my insurance that the ablation was APPROVED. When I went in for my follow up-I told him I wasn't ready for the ablation. His whole demeanor changed-told me I can't help you if you don't do it. Really? That was my ONLY option with everything he offers? I was in tears and he DID NOT CARE!!!! I let the referring doctor know what happened he told me he's heard this from several patients & is no longer referring him.

Dr Alamarie correctly diagnosed my condition as SI joint pain, while everyone was saying it’s from my disc. Staff is professional and Dr Alamarie spent time with me! Price was much lower than going to the ER. They seemed very eager to help me! Highly recommend this clinic!

Dr.Alamarie and staff are professional,knowledgeable and friendly. Dr.Alamarie listens and imparts medical advice that is in the best interest of his patients. I was seen by Dr.Alamarie with severe constant cervical neck pain 10 out of 10 after a few visits I am now 95% better. I was able to be seen quickly. His staff is polite & accomadating and his office is clean & Covid precautions are in place. So glad that I was able to find such a great place for my pain management needs !!

I trusted him, he sincerely tried to relieve my wife’s PHN pain which she’s had for 10 yrs. I’d have given him 4 stars but he overcharged me, I can’t even get an invoice. The office has hung up on me several times. If he isn’t honest in billing, how can I be sure he was honest in his treatment. An Overcharge of $300.+ means more to him than his reputation. I’d have been open to negotiations if had been willing to talk. Also, we have had to wait 30 to 45 minutes to get in, even with a 1st appointment after lunch.

I find this doctor very caring and welcoming. He was able to help with my knee pain and I am able to stand longer in church. He did a gelicula block. He wants to help you. He is good if you have pain. If you are addicted to pills dont ruin it for people like me who need help and have pain. He practices by the book and explains things well!

I had an epidural in my lower back. 100% free of back pain for the last month. Y'all should check that place out. Hard to get an appointment there but now I know why . They treat you like a human being and the doctor and staff care. I recommend them. God Bless!

By far the most respectful staff I have ever met. They spent there time with me and explained things. The doctor has a big smile on his face and has a good personality. He did an injection on my lower back and I have been doing great the last two months with no pain. I couldnt do home chores and clean my yard. Dr.Alamarie is great and I have recommended him to a lot of my friend.

I can't tell you how happy I am to have Dr. ALAMARIE treat me. After seeing him 1 time, he did my first ever facet injection. It worked! I became mobile again!, could walk upright again & able to tolerate simple tasks again! the injection last me about 6-8 weeks. Due to the success of the facet injections, I elected to do lumbar ablation which should give me 1-2 yrs of relief! I give him 5??recommendation!

Very good doctor who spent time with me and addressed my pain. He made a plan for my pain and did not just write me pain meds which usually make me constipated. Great Doctor and highly recommended! Always smiling.
