Patient Comments (3)
Mobile, AL |
My friend saw him today and he did absolutely nothing for her. No treatment plan, no discussion, no help. She has x-rays, MRIs, and written statements from multiple specialists for levoscoliosis, kyphosis, 4 herniated discs, and a foot that was broke in half. All injuries from a wreck. She moved here and hasn't been able to find a new pain management doctor, so after finding a medication that worked for her, this doctor disregarded it and offered Mobic. Mobic=Tic Tacs for pain

Very poor care given to my husband in back pain. Not asking for pain pills but asks like he has no time to assist my husband with a treatment plan.
in Leakesville, MS |
A gentlemen and tried several things before surgery and genuinely concerned.
