Dr. Jones and his staff are great. They make you feel at home and actually care about you. He explains all your options to you. If you have a procedure done the staff and Dr. Jones make you feel less nervous, like your part of the family. Thank you for everything.
Lees Summit, MO |
Listens well, very personable. Great results. Would recommend to family and friends. Expensive process, and insurance will give you grief, but worth fighting through. Dr. Jones spoke with their 'physician' and explained to their satisfaction. Clinic staff were excellent to work with. Billing clerk, not so much.
in Leawood, KS |
Dr. Jones is an excellent doctor! I was referred to Dr. Jones by family members. Being under Dr. Jones care, I can now take part in working out and doing daily activities. I would highly recommend Dr. Jones to friends and colleagues.
Kansas City, KS |
Dr Jones is only there to do what he thinks needs to be done due to test results. He became negative when I tried to explain my concerns about the procedure that was to be performed. Even though he recommended I see a surgeon, he still decided to do the procedure. Once the procedure was done, I was told to only contact them if I has any problem. I was given shots in my lumbar area that we're supposed to be the first of there. Very unprofessional!
in Olathe, KS |
Excellent communications and very helpful for the Sciatica I had been suffering for many years!!
in Buckner, Mo |
Very knowledgeable and willing to help.
in Blythedale, MO |
Dr. Jones explained the MRI and performed an epidural. The procedure went well and since then I have been pain free. Dr. Jones told me to follow-up as needed and I will definitely see him again for pain management. He is a very nice man and easy to talk to and communicates well with patients.

in Kansas city, mo |
I liked dr. Jones, he's kind, knows what he's doing, I've have so many epidurals on my neck in the past and only one had worked. Now with dr. Jones they seem to be helping. He also does not over prescribe meds.like others I've been to in the past. He's a little hyper but I have respect and trust in Dr jones. Catherine matthews, Kansas city
