One of the most arrogant doctors around. He couldn't make it in Hollywood but will try and cash in on your body should you let him. The reason second opinions were invented.

Dr. Southern is a God send. I suffered for months with sciatica from herniated discs . I finally went to Dr. Southern who was in the same group with my Ortho and within days I was pain free. Love him.

Dr. Southern was the only Dr. who was able to alleviate my back, hip and leg pain. Had seen many Dr's before him with no success. He's extremely knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommend him.

I have been coming to Dr, Southern for at least 10 years. He has kept my pain levels manageable through very accurate steroid shots, pain medicines, and physical therapy for arthritis, broken bones, and spinal stenosis and many disc issues. He sometimes is in a big hurry and only likes to focus on one issue at a time. Other times, he stays longer and explains what is going. happening to my body. He is personable and mostly cheerful. He is very good at pin pointing the cause of pain. He shows me respect for my consistent handling of my pain management. He shows interests in my activities.

The most painful 3 day procedures I have ever experienced. No follow-up call, email or text. Never heard back now going on 9 weeks from procedures. I can only hope the procedures are going to work.

Dr. Southern is very patient with me. He knows that I have a low tolerance for pain and is aware when giving me trigger point injections. He never rushes ... takes the time to explain what is causing the pain.
