He listens, Is conservative with his approaches to pain management, and does not just throw pills at the problem. Fantastic. Feels like I got my life back after he worked with me through treating my lower back pain.

After explaining that I did NOT want any pain pills, I was sent for testing and had a follow up appointment that I was not seen at because of a scheduling mistake on their part. I was not seen at my second appt after being told I wasn't 30 minutes early. After voicing my opinions that this office and "doctor" were not managing things properly, a letter was sent to my referring doctor stating that Mr. Closson didn't feel comfortable giving me pain pills due to my "disrespect" of their office!!!!
