I am at my wits end with their performance to date. As a Veteran and military Retiree, I suffer from chronic neck pain, and see them every month for therapy, treatments, and pain medication (Oxycodone hcl tabs 10mg). While the treatments have helped a little, the office staff makes any benefit useless. They are rude, impersonal, and cant tell you anything. The wait time is horrendous, but if you are late, they cancel you. All they are interested in is money and getting you out the door

I have been going to Dr. S for over 4yrs for facet arthritis and DDD. I am the patient he has to tell to take pain meds. I hate them and I am all for his approach on how he manages when you get them. I have have steroid injections, trigger point injections, and every 6 months RFA. This is what we have found works for me. It has been trial and error but no 2 people are alike in treating pain, nor dealing with it. There is no cure for what I have. But I now have relief and some of my life back.

This Dr. is educated on how to not get everyone hooked on high dosage of narcotics. When you go to the Dr. and take his advise and try not to take loads of opioids, you will do better. Some people think that 10-15 pills a day and stay inside house is acceptable. I like the staff and Dr S and the P A’s and they talk to me thoroughly. They are not there to write out bottle after bottle though. You will be offered injections to try to help, and you should try.

Giving only 1 star is a real compliment! His PA's take the time to explain stuff, but he is totally useless, less than 5 minutes the few times I've see him. He sets the amount of pain meds ridiculously low, with no respect that each patient's needs, tolerance, pain level, metabolism, etc. is different, and so you cannot set an arbitrary amount. He dismissed me because I finished my meds 2 days early (which was not enough to start with) after a surprised urine test. AVOID HIM AT ALL COST!!!!

He is only concerned with booking multiple procedures for the $$ at the expense of his patients health. Uses strong arm tactics of withholding meds if you refuse these dangerous procedures. RUN

If I could give this doctor no stars I would. The staff is a little to be desired. Called to make appointment due to extreme pain and would not make appointment, they advised me that I had a appointment scheduled in two months and would see me then. Only spent 5 minutes with doctor and PA did all dignososes and medication treatment. Would not recommend if you have CRPS / RSD.

My experience with Dr. S is little as you rarely see him it's usually one of the PA's. Not quite sure why that is. The time I saw him last he convinced me to have another shot in my knee even though I told him it has not been bothering me. That night my knee hurt worse than it ever had. He is always in a hurry so you don't get the opportunity to ask questions. No worries cause I am taking my business elsewhere. This office is full of rude staff and providers who really don't care.

The doctor and his staff are outstanding. I have had two procedures and both gave me immense relief without having to resort to painful surgeries. Excellent bedside manner and extremely professional. Highly recommend.
