I have had chronic pain for over twenty years & have been to a number of pain management Drs until I found Dr Yadegar. He has been the only Dr who has ever made it possible for me to walk when my pain becomes debilitating. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs his expertise.

A great experience from out consultation and on. Just came back from my second group of elidurals these are a little different So I could not be knocked out But the anesthesiologist make me feel very comfortable and what I thought was the lidocaine numbing shots was actually the multiple epidurals I was getting, Doctor Yadegar Listens to your Concerns explains everything that needs to be explained perfectly and now I have no apprehension if I have to do this again. I would recommend him to all

Dr. Yadegar has been treating me for several years. Not only is he the best at what he does, he is extremely compassionate. His techniques have been far superior than other docs I have used previously with results lasting years. I couldn't help but respond to the last review which was written by someone who clearly is misrepresenting this amazing doctor. I have recommended him to countless family and friends ALL of whom have had great experiences.

I would never go back again. Worst bedside manner and attitude. No exam given at all and immediately jumped into invasive treatment. Really disliked him. Never,never, use or recommend him to anyone.

He is probably really great at the procedures and diagnoses. But his office is impenetrable afterwards. He/they are unresponsive to pain management issues after the patient has left his office. No sensitivity to the situation he leaves his patient in regarding # days of pain meds remaining on his latest prescription versus how long it takes to get a followup appointment. That's important because prescriptions for narcotics can't be renewed without seeing him.

Finally got into see Dr Yadegar after all this red tape with my orthopedic doctor. I pinch my sciatica nerve and the pain level was 10. Dr Yadegar realize this and scheduled my epidural spinal injection the next day. He was straight up with me and I plan on using him from on with my back issues. He went out of his way to get this procedure done asap and I thank him for that.

Dr. Yadegar was professional and polite. He went into my diagnosis in full detail and explained the issue in clear language. Dr. Yadegar treated my injury and after many months of pain I was pain free. The office was spotless and the staff was friendly and reassuring.
