Dr. Pahr will tell you one thing but the staff will do another. Staff is extremely rude. I have been trying to get help on paying my bill. I call every month and have been doing so for the past 5 years. I still have not been contacted. Not sure what to do.

In the current environment with respect to pain management, Dr. Pahr has a very difficult job to do. Somehow he manages to do so with care, fairness and integrity. He is consistent and does follow guidelines with everyone, which is refreshing. I am pleased to see that everyone has to go through scrutiny before being trusted with very strong medicine. Thank you Dr. Pahr. Not because you've given me an over abundance of medicine, but you've helped life, for me, to be more functional.

Doctor and staff lack compassion. Ignorant regarding my illness. Not interested in getting to know the patient to educate himself as to what exactly is going on. His treatment plans seem to be random and what works best for him. Am not sure what is motivating this person to practice medicine.

Always treats me with respect and I truly believe that he cares about all clients.. great doctor!

Awful. I do not recommend him. He's not interested in helping your pain. He's interested in having as many patients as possible. So he will cut your script down even when you say your in pain. He wrote a script saying 1 every 12 hours but the script was only for 30. Previous to that I was on 3 a day. It seems as though he is incapable of doing math.

Dr.Pahr is the best pain management doctor! He really listens and seems to genuinely care, he is strict but I think that is a really good thing and I wish his staff was 1/5 as decent. Most (not all) of them are rude, they cut you off and don't listen. I'm sad to be leaving him because he really is a great doctor but after 4+years of being given a hard time by his staff I have had enough, I don't have insurance and therefore am self-pay, I spend way too much money to be treated awful by them.

I went to Dr. Pahr because two people I knew said he was good (they were both women). I was already on Norco and other things when he accepted me as a patient. I had to get my script every 15 days rather than getting scripts for 3 months at a time. Every time I went in I told him the 10 mg 3 times a day was not enough. When I told him I was drinking to help with the pain, he cut me back to only 2 a day! I also had to get refills every 10 days! When pot showed up in my screen, he dropped me ! SOB

Ive been seeing Dr, Pahr for about 6yrs now, Hes understanding, caring, and yes he does take the time to listen and ,answer your questions.He is fabulous in my book, theres no better doctor out there.
in Cleveland, OH |
Dr Pahr does care about patients pain. He limits medications to see more patients and just does not care if you are experiencing pain where suicide is in your thoughts because the pain is so great. If you are in great pain do not see him!!!!!!!

my pain management doctor stopped taking my insurance so I made appointment with Dr Pahr. My previous doctor faxed my infor to him. Dr. Pahr would not even see me. stated that I was on too high of pain medicine. Told Pahr that he could decrease it as he was the doctor however he refused to see me even though I was there for an appointment.

Dr. Pahr is an excellent caring physician who was recommended by my family doctor. After becoming a patient of Dr Pahr's, I have found significant pain relief for multiple issues. I wish his office staff would/could live up to his standard. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pahr to friends and family. I would, however, warn them that his office staff is NOT as caring or committed to patient comfort as this doctor.
