Dr Trujillo’s nurses are amazing! However, the doctor didn’t live up to their praise. He was rushing because it was the end of the day, I guess. He has a speech he apparently gives all of his patients about meds. On a positive note, he did order the appropriate radiology requisitions right away. Hopefully the follow up visit will yield a positive review.

The Dr explained and answered our questions. My only complaint was related to circumstances beyond the doctors control. Over the past six months only two of my monthly visits were with the doctor, I found his staff to be helpful, there was only one incident where I was dissatisfied with the staff, and I found upon my next visit that staff member with no longer employed there.

He normally does not see patients and the nurses that do are allowed to fake records about you and will lie to you about tests like mri's. If you are on state healthcare they will tell you your a low life and not worth spending money on for things like stimulator that reduces pain. In the office alone with them record it because they've been known to threaten you in many ways. They see you for a few minutes just to tell you they are refilling your meds and will refuse to listen to anything else.

This Pain Clinic treated me as a "Pill Seeker?" If you want this kind of medical customer service please engage this clinic. if its pills you want - go see them but please do not expect a "Pain Management" plan. If you want pain management services go someplace else.

I have been seeing Dr Trujillo for more than three years both him and the staff has always been very professional and polite. They really care about me and we talk about different was to help my pain they don’t treat me like I’m stupid like a lot of doctors do I have the last word . I have had fifteen surgeries since my accident and I would Definitely recommend Dr. Trujillo for a pain management doctor thank you .

He was impressive at first appt. I wanted off of pain meds and he said he could do. Then I was pushed off onto Ms Hall who was not so impressive. Back to Trujillo and now he gives me bad info and it is clear he has no experience weaning off med I've been on. They referred me to cardiologist then after jumping thru all those hoops, they overruled him. They charge for every phone call, like scheduling xray. They are not very knowledgeable people incl the great doc. They treat me like an insect.

Staff (aside from Trujillo) was GREAT (if that's what you're looking for in a "Doctor"). Aside from his lack of honesty, and ABUNDANCE of concern over his own time being "wasted" if he spends more than 8 minutes per client, I would also find him acceptable. However, as someone who is well acquainted with what a "good doctor" looks like, this "individual" is absolutely NOT it. After 5 visits with him, and receiving ONLY medication, his concern is far from being about me. "The Patient".
