I have long standing pain issues, and was referred to Dr. Celis for his opinion. He reviewed my records, but did examine me at all. His comments and diagnosis was blunt and callous. Repeatedly stated that “you can’t get younger,” as if I was stupid. Outlined a dire future for me, being incontinent and unable to walk, and left. I’ve been upset ever since the appointment. I have seen several pain/spine specialists, and he was the most uncaring person I have ever met. He may be a good doctor only if you have a straightforward problem.

I cannot recommend Dr Celis enough. He has all the attributes of a top doctor. He is a careful and compassionate listener. He encourages me to try every option, and I have. He discusses options with me in a non-patronizing way. My gratitude for his care, thoughtfulness and sense of humor is immeasurable.

Not what you'd call a cuddly guy, and it gets in his way. I never doubted he knows his stuff, but I didn't feel I could trust him and didn't think he trusted me, so our communication was poor and treatment ineffective. Moreover he commutes between several different offices, which makes scheduling difficult, and his colleagues apparently do too. As result his office has an empty, creepy vibe, on top of all the big-brother drug controls the government forces him to put us through.

Dr. Celis is one of the professionals I have seen for chronic pain. He has been the MOST thoughtful doctor I have ever had. He takes the time to review my chart and all previous issues. I am a rather difficult patient due to the many injuries over many parts of my body. He has been thorough and very knowledgeable. Each time I meet with him, I am left with a feeling of confidence and comfort that we are doing the right treatments to address my issues.

Very nice man. Caring doctor. Pretty serious most of the time but has a dry sense of humor. Takes the time to talk to you instead of just rushing around room to room. His office out in San Rafael is REALLY nice. He is the only Doctor in that office, so it's always very calm and quiet.

Pain management doctors are always busy and frequently double booked however, Doctor Celis really makes you feel like you are his top priority.

Dr Celis is an amazing doctor. He is very thorough and patient, he is just excellent. He spends a long time with me each month when I have had nerve blocks, and at each visit, and still does. He is committed to making sure we find every option besides drugs to treat my entrapped nerve and associated severe pain. He has integrity, expertise and TRULY cares about his patients. This is so rare these days. I highly recommend Dr Celis and pain management consultants. Five stars all around!
