J.M. – Jun 24, 2021
During my surgical procedure I was not yet under anesthesia and Viesca continued with the procedure anyway. I was complaining of severe pain and he just ignored me so he could hurry up finish. He is callous and uncaring in regards to his patients condition or the level pain he is inflicting on them. I strongly recommend avoiding this man for medical needs.

He did not fix my biggest problem in a timely manner. Right leg absolutely on fire, seemingly, but on the third set of injections he helped my, didn’t fix the nerves but got all the insurance money he could. I tell everyone not to go to him. He seems like an egomaniac. I will never use him again. Just a heads up.

The doctor was very kind. I'm pretty young to have the injuries I do, and most doctors have been dismissive. He asked pertinent questions and treated me like a human being instead of someone just looking for drugs. He explained several options that are not medication that could help me, and I was SO relieved. I left with a smile on my face, and I appreciate his professionalism and expertise. The staff was extremely helpful and everyone was so nice!

Charity Rakes – Oct 18, 2019
Carrying and honest - the one difficulty is the wait to be seen but then this is the new norm - once on they’re professional and take care of their patients - there are some people who approach pain management with unrealistic expectations - no I’m not at zero but I’m also no loner at 8/9 - I can learn to live with 1/3. If I had surgery that level would be considered successful. No complaints and highly recommended- thanks

I am a retired attorney. Dr. Carlos O. Viesca has been my PM for 15 years. He's treating me for Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome that requires state of the art medical care that can only be obtained at a facility like his. I would like everyone to know that Ketamine effectively treats depression and pain. Ketamine therapy has given me my life back in a way that was not possible before starting treatment. I commend all the staff, nurses and doctors working with Dr. Viesca. They're kind and devoted
