This man has one of the best personalities I have ever seen besides my doctor. He was very down to earth and very easy to communicate with. His staff is reflection of him also. Yes I just left this morning and feeling so much better. 5 stars

in Memphis, TN |
I went to this doctor as a referral to get better treatment options for my chronic pain in my upper back due to broken vertebra. It took over 1 hour to even see the doctor then I was talking to him no less than 5 minutes. All he kept saying was I don't treat chronic pain when it says everywhere on the Internet and his office that he does! I have no history of anything bad he just refused to accept me as a patient!! Why???
