First appointment was two weeks ago to treat Shingles nerve pain. He did a complete exam and also referred me to a couple other providers for additional information. I was very pleased with his personable style and his expertise and caring attitude.

Just after a few short weeks I feel like I found the best and greatest Doctor I could possibly ask for. No nonsense. I had reached a place I did not want to be. He saw through my pain and I have since started getting my life back. He has a wonderful staff. I am 76. I have not had good luck here in Arizona health wise. Dr. Morales was recommended to me by a PT. He is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

I am sorry to have to leave dr. Morales is care. I have been with Nova Spine Institute for 4 years and have been happy with my progress and had no issues. After all this time dr. Morales seems to have changed his attitude towards his patients. While nothing has changed in my lifestyle or medical area, this doctor felt a need to accuse me of things that weren't true, due to what the feds have dictated. I am a reasonable person but the doctor needs to take lessons and how to talk to his patients.

He is a good listener, compassionate, understanding, professional , patient, knowledgeable etc. He has helped me get relief from trigeminal neuralgia & foraminal stenosis. However there is usually an hour between the appointment time &the time I actually see the doctor. Also a bit of advice. Bring a winter sweater because his waiting cubicle is rather chilly.

DR. Moralesis wonderful From the second he entered the room and shook my hand I knew I was in good hands. He gave a very though detailed examination. He scheduled a MRI for a neck injury from a car accident. He gave me a sample Flexor patch for my shoulder that keeps me awake at night. He will be injecting me today. Also I cant say enough praise for April in there office. She goes over and above for each and every call. She even follows up when she is away from the office on vacation. Love the!

Dr. Morales has been treating my pain for arthritis, with RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation) treatments and I have been very happy with the results. I was taking oxycodone four times a day and wanted off the drugs. Dr. Morales is a very concerned/caring doctor and asks questions and listens to the feedback. I very strongly recommend Dr. Morales.

Saw Dr. Morales for severe neck & back pain = few hours of sleep in a 24 hrs. I was exhausted & discouraged. He carefully listened to me before a thorough exam. He gave me choices in treatment. PT & meds have allowed me to sleep and the pain level is amazingly reduced to the point I can live an active life again. He's compassionate, skilled & thorough. At each visit, he carefully listened not only to me, but also my husband. I highly recommend Dr. David Morales.

So far, so good! Epidural injections in my lower back have helped to alleviate the pain. I am so glad I didn't sell my bicycles. I thought I would never ride again. He listened to my concerns. Together we realized other pain treatment options as I wasn't wanting to entertain narcotics/opioids. Thank you Dr. Morales!

This office is very unorganized. .His staff is rude and made numerous billing errors. Also this doctor acts rushed; seems like he books more patients than he can appropriately handle. Do not go to this provider.

Dr. Morales and the staff of NovaSpine Pain Institute are outstanding. The front desk staff are friendly, professional and helpful. The nursing staff and anesthesiologists have procedures down so that everything runs smoothly. Dr. Morales is patient, answers all questions and truly takes the time to make his patients feel like they are important to him. I would highly recommend the practice to anyone suffering from back pain.

Dr. Morales is a caring and professional doctor who helps his patients reach maximum pain relief. He spent time with me explaining what can be done about a pinched nerve in my spine and bursitis in my hip. The pain was unbearable. He gave me several injections which removed the pain by 95 percent. I am very grateful to him for being so knowledgeable and enabling me to live a productive life again.

Dr Morales has truly given me a life again. He and his staff are the most professional, caring, and compassionate I've ever been associated with! He has monitored my prescription use to maximize effectiveness without letting me become dependent on it. With regular treatments he and I have rejoiced together with the results and are optimistic for the future. I am blessed to have Dr Morales as my pain management physician and would recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Morales is a very compassionate doctor. I saw him for horrific back pain and he was able to quickly diagnose my problem and come up with a solution. I really appreciate that he doesn't like to heavily rely on treating pain solely with drugs but provides many other solutions that are healthier in the long run. I also appreciate that he takes the time necessary to explain treatments options and doesn't rush you out of the exam room when your 15 minutes are up.

Dr. Morales was outstanding. He gave me his undivided attention when I was describing to him what my problem was not like other doctors who half listen to what you are telling them. He is very patient even though he is constantly busy. The treatment that he applied for my situation was just what I needed to feel better, he did not prescribed anything less or anything more, it was just what I needed. Thank you Dr. Morales for giving me back my mobility. Totally awesome.

his people skills aren't the best, he is there for the money not the patient. you should see the way he does physical, by touching your joints only. when i went there he treated me like i was a junkie and talk to me down with his chest pop out. he did not listen to what i had to say, sometimes as a doctor listen to what we say. so we had a few bad words to each other that day what a professional. this so call doctor that is hiding in his own little world. no doctors that i talk to knows him wow!
