Dr. Carmel has been my pain management doctor for 6+ years. He is by far the best of all the others I've seen. He's personable, caring and well educated. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

He is very personable and very caring. He spends a lot of time with his patients. If he can't fix your problem he will refer you to a dr he thinks is fitting for your condition. I would refer him to anyone.

I have used Dr. Carnel for years. He put a shot in my neck and it for better. I was down all last spring with my back. Dr. Carnel gave me 2 shots in my back a month ago part and I was so grateful. I'll be 86 my birthday and I've got fishing to do. Thank you to everybody there.
