In the beginning, I loved Dr. Stephens. He diagnosed and began treatment immediately. Over the 2 years since then, it seems that he doesn't understand or care about the actual pain and suffering his patient is going through. His medical assistant and nurses/office people are rude, do not return calls, takes 6-8 weeks to get a prior auth...Since combining his office with the other doctor, the problems have gotten much worse! Wish he would read these reviews and address the problems.

I have been a patient of Doctor Stevens for over two years. He has been very responsive to my needs and always takes time to listen. His staff is always helpful and attentive.

My referral was sent back to my primary care doctor with a not that said they couldn't see ma as a patient. I called Dr. Stephens office and was told I missed a new patient appointment 1 year ago and they couldn't see me. I informed her that I knew nothing about an appointment last year and she transferred to the nurses voicemail. No one has returned my call yet...

Dr Stephens is down to earth, so nice and caring. He doesn't rush you thru your time with him, he actually checks you out thoroughly, he is a hands on physician. My back surgeon never touched me to see where the pain was ever. Dr. Stephens puts you on a treatment plan to help your body and makes adjustments as needed to help your quality of life. I would tell anyone needing medical help in this field to defiantly go see Dr. Stephens for a consult, hopefully he could help you too.

I wouldn't recommend any family and or friend to tour staff for any kind of assistance for anything. Dr. Stephens seems to know how to practice medicine when he is not being ordered around by his Medical Assistant .

Dr Stephens is fabulous, it's like you are his only patient when you are with him, he's concerned and listens and asks questions and answers questions in a way that you understand exactly what he's saying.
