We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Obah is doing his best to help people. The staff have issues with prior authorizations and don't always get back to you when a message is left and they have strict policies which are a bit more bizarre than most clinics I have been to but overall they are good, caring people who are doing their best to help their patients. I was scared to get the injections but they have been helpful and Obah and the other prescribers are good communicators.

Dr Obah is a very helpful. I would recommend him to anyone needing pain management or help recovering. He is not only great at what he does he is kind and compassionate and willing to help. The thing I love most is he is always trying to find new and better ways while still holding on to traditional time tested methods.

Dr. Christian (Kris) Obah, M.D. is uncommonly kind, decent, genuine, & cares that his patients receive the best care he can provide. Dr. Obah answers questions and concerns. He actually listens to what I'm saying (a rarity among today's MDs). I've been his patient for 9 years, following him when he completed a fellowship at U of U. I'm an RN--I trust Obah professionally. I recommend him to anyone suffering from severe pain (temporary or chronic).

Danna Schow is wonderful! She listens to not only details of my pain management but me and my overall life care. She discusses alternate activities that I can do to improve all areas of my life, thus minimizing my pain control and the depression and anxieties that can add and exacerbate my pain. She is a great listener and always offers her opinion when asked. She is smart, informative, compassionate, and kind. Everybody needs a Danna Schow!!!!

Although they are very busy, the clinic truly takes time to know me and to understand my pain needs. Doctor Obah and the great staff took several angles to treat my pain issues and to get me back to functioning at a high level at work and with spending quality time with my family. They also have access to other modalities that treated my pain rather than to just prescribe pain medication. I'm very thankful I was referred to Lifespring.

Worst experience of my life. I would never recommend this man who calls himself a Dr. to anyone. He put me in more physical pain than I have ever had... I have 5 kids. Now when I have to go in for a procedure, I have to be put under sedation because of what the man did to me. He dug and dug and DUG, then said I would hear a small pop.... He couldn't do it, and finally gave up. How on earth did he pass through the U of U internship???

Scheduling is terrible. You won't get a phone call back, ever. You will show up for a procedure to be told they haven't requested authorization by your insurance.

From the time that I arrived in his office until I left was 2 1/2 hours. Most of my time was spent in the exam room. I was told that Dr. Obah was out. I was to see his assistant. I went to the desk twice to ask when will be seen. I was told that she had one patient ahead of me. The nurse came into my room twice. I asked the nurse how much longer? She said that there was one patient ahead of me. Dr Obah's assistant came in. I told her that this behavior was unacceptabl. No reccomendatio

Dr Obah is amazing. I've known him for about 4 years. He has been willing to spend time with me each time my migraines and neck/back pain has reoccured. I know he cared for me as a patient and as a person. I would recommend him to anyone. He truly wants the best for everyone.

Dr. Obah and his associates have improved my life exponentially! When I first started treatments here, I was pretty much home bound and had no social life. Now I'm able to visit friends sometimes, work in the yard a little, and even work one or two days a week. It's hard for me to express how much Dr. Obah and his team have truly helped me. I'm not without pain, but it is managed so much better than it ever has been in my whole life!
