This content was provided by Dr. Fairleigh "Relieving Pain, Restoring Function, Renewing Hope, this is our philosophy at Gulf Coast Pain Institute. We recognize that pain is subjective. X-rays, MRI's and lab work can't show us your pain but we know that it is real and not only affects how you feel but affects you as a person. At GCPI, we aid in diagnosing the specific issues causing you to hurt and through our multidisciplinary approach tailor a treatment plan to help make you feel better and be more functional.

Patient Comments (8)
in Cantonment, FL |
I was seeing him for a Rare Blood Cancer. I am taking Oral Chemotherapy. I seen him for 5 years. He admitted that he didn't know much about My kind of Cancer. But would research it. After going to him for 5 years. He still didn't know that I have cancer. Then accused me of selling my pills since My high mg water pill flushes My system. He dropped me from being seen. Made me feel like a very no good low life. I will not recommend him

We've been with him forever and he's always been a good person to us. He isn't just going to give you medicine to get you out the door. He actually cares and wants to fix the problem.
in Pensacola, FL |
He really seems to care and want to try to help not with just medication but with trying to think of all the different ways to help you feel better.
in Pensacola, FL |
He is very competent and very personable. He has pretty much resolved the problems I have and is very easy to talk to.
in Pensacola, FL |
I would recommend him to my friends and family. We appreciate his commitment to trying to solve the problem and trying to figure out what's going on.
in Pensacola, FL |
He is very personable but I felt like I was in an assembly line as he sometimes does 27 procedures in the morning. He and the staff talk constantly to each other constantly during the procedure. He is a good doctor but wouldn't return because it is very difficult to get anyone in the office to return a call if you have a question. He is a very competent doctor but way too busy
Pensacola, FL |
You can tell he's been doing this for a while. He is easy going but strict on making sure my meds last. I don't mind but I've seen patients get upset when they don't follow the rules. He's a great doc that helped me get back on my feet again.
in Milton, Fl |
Looks at the big picture of my care. I didn't want to take pain meds for the rest of my life so I'm happy I have treatment options.
