Dr. Bannister and his team are out of this world excellent! Dr. Bannister really takes the time to listen to his patients along with getting the proper diagnostic testing done to better understand which treatment plan will work best for you. His bedside manner is by far the best there is out there! It's very difficult to find a Doctor who is knowledgable, understanding, caring, and properly tends to his patients needs. And the staff behind the Doctor is phenomenal!

I trust them completely , regarding my healing process,tolerable pain

Dr Bannister told me he would help me when two other doctors kept just giving me different medication. Just because of my handicapp i felt other doctors thought i was making up the fact that i had pain. Dr. bannister reviewed my mri with me and asked me questions for over 20 minutes. After everything he put me on a strict plan to better my health both physically and mentally. I owe him my life, i haven't slept through the night without pain in years. God bless him

I was referred to Dr. Bannaster by a friend and wow what an experience. After a horrible encounter with a previous pain doctor Dr. B truly restored my faith in the medical industry!! He was very thourough in my initial visit and offered me various treatment options after I was diagnosed. He kept me and my family in the loop throughout the entire process which kept my mind at ease. The office staff was also extremely kind and thoughtful towards my needs. Anyone with chronic pain should try him

I have been a patient and happy with the service. dr bannister was honest with me about my prognosis and didn't pretend I would be perfectly fine. He gave me treatment options and educated my husband and I as to what the potential outcomes would be. I'm happy to say I am walking again and I lost weight, lol. Thank you so much! I have referred my daughter already.

Today was my first visit with Dr. Bannister and it was a great experience. He was very thorough in explaining the procedures he felt would help with my back pain. He spent plenty of time with me answering all questions and did not rush the visit at all. I felt he was very genuine and compassionate. He made it very clear that His intentions are to find out the cause of my pain and do what's needed to address it and not just mask it with temporary fixes. Great office staff very friendly.

I visited Dr. Bannister's office today and had an excellent experience. He listened carefully to my health concerns and together with his PA, Renee, they charted out a course of therapy that they knew could provide me with relief. I would recommend their practice to anyone suffering from difficult to diagnose chronic pain conditions. Excellent diagnostician and listener. Compassionate and caring!

Dr. Bannister did not rush me through. I felt he listened to my needs and concerns. An added bonus is that the waiting room time was short. I highly recommend Dr. Bannister.

This is a staff issue complaint. I had called the office twice for appointment,and had giving all information asked for by front desk. In turn i was told they would call back to confirm insurance which i had already checked with and said they accepted. My wife who is a practice manager elsewhere and over 20 years in the insurance had called also to follow up.. Dr. Came highly recommended by previous Dr.I used. A week later no return call,no messages. Front desk lost a big account for minor issue

Excellent doctor!!! Not only does he listen, and goes to above and beyond his skills as a professional competent practitioner to treat what's the matter to treat the whole patient!!!

He's is doctor that really cares about his patients... He listens and pays attention to every complaint that you may have .... He sees his patients as people with real medical problems ... Not as another co-pay

Dr. Bannister was the only pain doctor in 8 years who correctly diagnosed, treated and got my back pain from a 9 to 2 without prolonged use of pain meds after an injury in Iraq. In my opinion there is not a better doctor out there to help you get your life back. I cannot make a higher recommendation for a healthcare provider. His staff and offices are incredibly well run, he is on time, he takes the time to talk to you and really get to the bottom of your ailment- A+++
