Absolutely wonderful doctor and office staff. They truly care for you as a person. Very supportive, and I have even received direct calls from Dr. Gay to check on my progress and well-being in between appointments. I cannot recommend him enough.

I experienced severe back pain last summer and Dr Gay was able to provide alternate treatments to keep my pain minimal until I ultimately chose surgery. He is excellent at spinal injection and radio-frequency ablation.

Very happy with the care I have received From Dr Gay and staff @ AK Cut for Pain. The staff is positive,courteous and helpful. My appointments are on time. I'm very happy with the epidural received for my Sciatica 5 days pain free so far Longest such stretch in 9 months The progression through gabapentin, chiropatrick, to the epidural hasn't been hurried and all the steps have been thoroughly explained. I highly recommend this physician

Anchorage, AK – Oct 03, 2016
A few years ago I was under the care of Dr. Christopher Gay. He is an excellent Physician who is very peaceful mannered. Dr. Gay always took time to listen to my concerns. His interest in helping solve problems, with my input, was outstanding. I totally trusted his vast medical knowledge, abilities, and procedure techniques. I was sad to see he is no longer in the Virginia, DC, Maryland area. I must say, Our loss and your gain. From: A nurse who was injured on the job.
