The office said they run between an hour and an hour and a half behind all day every day. How is that acceptable when you are seeing pain patients? Why not change your scheduling to deal with the issue? Then they were hurried and said they were short on time after I waited over an hour.

I saw Laura Ricard (PA) twice at the Fairfax, VA location. She spent 5 minutes examining me, did not order an MRI and even after hearing my medical history, misdiagnosed me. She was rude, not at all compassionate and seemed very impatient. As a result of her misdiagnosis, I received a very painful injection which was in the wrong area and a complete waste of time and money. Her diagnosis cost me weeks of additional pain and delayed proper treatment. This place is a factory.

Dr. Whittenberg was very thorough, asking plenty of questions and actually listening to the answers. She was concerned with how things were going, what I have tried that didn't work and what she thought we could do that might work. She was very honest, knowledgeable and caring. She did a series of cervical epidural's to help with neck pain I had been fighting for over 20 years, and thus far has been the only thing to help me. She's the best!

At a scary and frustrating time in my life, Dr. Whittenberg has been a rock for me to learn on, and a guide to show me the path forward. I cannot thank her enough.

Made appointment for my mother visiting from AZ. She had seen a pain specialist there, but no relief. After visiting with Dr. Whittenberg, she determined previous Drs were treating the wrong area to reduce her leg pain. She and her staff worked incredibly fast to get my mother in before she returned to AZ. The pain management worked. And she talked my mother and I through the entire procedure. Great ability to communicate medical procedure so those of us without medical degree understood.
