My doctor referred me to Dr. Oliva after I injured my back and my pain had not improved in a month. His office staff is very professional and friendly, and Dr. Oliva was caring and skilled. I got an appointment quickly and since I was in a lot of pain he expedited my epidural. Now I am pain free again. I am telling everyone about Dr. Oliva’s practice!

Dr. Oliva is so compassionate and very caring. He managed my pain so effectively via epidural injections for herniations of discs in my neck and back. I had two different appointments for the injections. Each time was painless and he and his staff are very kind and patient oriented. I highly recommend anyone with pain issues to seek his professional assistance. It has been 7 months pain free for back and 5 months pain free for my neck. I'm amazed and feel so blessed to be painfree.

I was referred to Dr. Oliva by my primary care doctor for back pain. I am so pleased with the care that I received from Dr. Oliva and his talented and caring staff! I had one epidural and two weeks later, I am back to moving without being in constant pain. He has such great personality and he took time to answer my many questions. I trust Dr. Oliva and am going to recommend him to my friends.
