Dr Lichten is fantastic both during the office visits and during the procedure. He takes the time to understand and discuss treatment options and works with you the get you better, not to simply mask symptoms.

I had an appointment within one week of calling. A few minutes in waiting room. Dr. Lichten is kind, educated and is highly trained in his field. Dr. Lichten is getting the pain in my lumbar and knee down with injections meds and physical therapy. I am very happy to say I can start to live again and not be down with pain all the time. Dr. Lichten listens, he is sympathetic and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr.Lichten. Thank you Dr. Lichten. ??

I highly recommend Dr. Lichten! I work as a registered nurse in the ICU. I chose to see Dr. Lichten for my chronic back pain because, being in the healthcare field, I knew that he had a wonderful reputation. His exam was very thorough and his diagnosis was very accurate. This was evidenced by the relief I had with diagnostic injections. I am now in the process of receiving therapeutic treatments for long-term pain relief. He also started me on a medication regimen that suits my specific needs.

I had chronic and serious back, nee and hip pain that limited my ability to walk, sleep and stand. It was constant and greatly limited my ability to do the things I need and like to do. Dr. Lichten scheduled me for some physical therapy and spine injections which together eliminated my pain. I could not be happier with the result. Anyone suffering from constant back, nee, or hip pain should see him. You don't need to live in pain. Thank you Dr. Lichten.

I highly recommend Dr. Lichten. Thanks to his thorough evaluation and treatment plan, my pain is relieved and I've never felt better. He demonstrates professionalism, empathy, and also seemed to be as happy as I was that the treatments were successful.
in Collegeville, PA |
I came to Dr. Lichten after experiencing long term severe pain in my neck, shoulder and having chronic headaches. I was extremely skeptical regarding any type of pain management. However, he took the time to hear all of my concerns, what I had done thus far worked and took his time to explain all of my treatment and medication options. He has improved my overall pain level and I am now living a more normal life. He performed several injections, was very patient and professional.

I recently had an appointment with Dr. Lichten for severe neck pain. This was the first of three scheduled treatments. As the treatment progressed I realized I was in excellent hands and felt comforted. I was quite surprised when he said he was finished. He was caring and his experience was quite evident. I highly recommend him to anyone suffering from neck pain. Lorraine B.
