Saw his fellow for most of the appointment. Saw Michna for about 5 minutes. Spends no time with you.

Stay alway. Not sympathetic, interested, a listener, professional at all. I wrote a complaint to his boss and the head of the pain clinic and sadly no one responded to my letters. Hopefully taking it to the next level helps. I shouldn’t have to live the rest of my life with pain for hours and hours. I deserve to be hear.

Not helpful. Cortisone shot in my back was administered by a resident. He was there "observing" but didn't seem interested. The shot provided no relief. In follow up, he offered no other real alternatives and didn't show much interest. He has a lot of degrees - pharmacist, law, medicine, but in my view, he is not effective in the role of pain doctor.

Horrible egotistical insensitive. Why would such a jerk want to care for those in chronic pain when he has no compassion or empathy towards his patients? Just seems to be here for the money. He has a small, nonfunctioning amygdala. Avoid avoid avoid.

Had an appointment today, 30 minutes late being seen, I was very clear about my pain which I've been treated at a different Pain Clinic for 18 years. He asked me to point to my pain I did, he told me I was incorrect, did not examine me at all, my appointment lasted less than 90 seconds . He sent me for X-ray and said get your Med records. Thanks for the exam. Now waiting 10 days to follow up with a different doc at this office. He appears a Doc with an ego, not sensitive or able to communicate
