Aside from initial appt, my family member was rushed in appts with Dr. Cornidez and if I asked questions about her care, Dr. Cornidez came across offended. During recent appt, Dr. Cornidez shared frustration of my "need" to ask so many questions related to my family member's care. He also expressed frustration that I asked for clarity more than once regarding recent discovery from an MRI. I was concerned to hear this. A caring and professional doctor should welcome questions, even questions previously asked. Perhaps this is a situation of "not a good fit" but my main concern with Dr. Cornidez is he seemed to take issue with my need for answers and requests for details. In conjunction, the succession of injections my family member received without evaluations in between, (aside from initial appt) and the overly rushed appts with Dr. Cornidez, when appts were provided, did not leave a positive experience. This isn't to say the practice itself isn't wonderful. The staff are always cons

I have suffered from Common Migraine Syndrome for 53 years, and have had treatment from a variety of medical professionals for 45 of those years. Because of the current "opioid epidemic" in the U.S, my personal story of chronic pain, which involves relying on only two medications, i.e., Migergot (vasoconstrictor) and the lowest dose of hydrocodone, intermittently throughout a given month... has been understood and accepted by a scant number of medical professionals; the most magnanimous of whom has been Dr. Eric Cornidez. It was clear to me that Dr. Cornidez read the volume of medical records I provided at my first appointment, as he immediately said upon introducing himself; "you have been through a lot, haven't you?" All of his behaviors evidenced a clear and comprehensive understanding of the fact, that not every individual for whom opioid pain-relievers are prescribed are "drug-seekers." There exists in this world, those patients who neither abuse nor become addicted to opioids.

His skills in identifying and explaining my sources of pains were exceptional and productive. His injections have always been painless and effective for periformis, intercostal, SCM, and occipital nerve block. Pains in my legs, back, neck, and head are always relieved.

Every time I see Dr. Cornidez I continue to get better. He truly cares about his patients. The staff always treat me incredibly well and I always feel that they go out of their way to make sure I am taken care of. Dr. C has reviewed my MRIs and explains them to me thoroughly. I continue to trust the things he offers and am getting better every day.

I took my 89 old grandmother for her shoulder, I have NEVER seen any doctor explain to my grandmother so patiently. My grandmother is hard of hearing, she says yes so she won.t get embarrassed. I felt that Dr. Cornidez wanted to make sure that SHE understood everything with such compassionate voice and character. I wish her PCP was like him.

Dr. Cornidez, is the most personable, professional and knowledgeable doctor I have ever had the pleasure to meet in my 72 years. I only gave him a 5 star rating because there are no more stars. I would recommend him to anyone in pain.

I am amazed at the negative reviews I have read! Are you sure you have the right Doctor and Clinic? Dr. Cornidez has been treating me for over 3 years for 4 different pain issues. Each pain issue has been 95 to 100% eliminated. I could not be more pleased with my treatment. I have been extremely pleased with the Staff at PISA, they are beautiful inside & out, seem to love what they do and take care of you with love and compassion. I have referred 2 family members to PISA & I HIGHLY recommend him

Dr. Cornidez has treated me for the past four years. I feel blessed to have him as my Physician. I suffer with disc pain in both my upper neck as well as my lower back disc areas. Dr. Cornidez evaluated and correctly diagnosed the areas where I had severe nerve pain. I have received cervical RFA - burning of the neck area nerve endings, that has totally eliminated the extreme pain I had. He is courteous, kind, and truly considerate to his patients wellness. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Cornidez and his staff are absolutely amazing. Dr Cornidez listened to me when I described how my pain came about and how it was impacting my life and well being. He was empathetic, answered my questions, recommended different treatments, and courses of action to become well and healthy again. The staff is professional, competent, informative, and are happy to come to work. This is a well orchestrated machine The best way to describe my experience is tears of joy from being pain free!

I, like another reviewer, had a horrible experience with him. Made me feel like an inconvenience and like he didn't care that I was in pain. I will never go to this place again.

Dr Cornidez is an amazing doctor. He is so optimistic and confident in what he does. He has a wonderful personality. I was having really severe lower back and leg pain. My surgeon ordered a MRI and discovered a huge cyst in my spine and told me to go to the Pain Institute. Dr Cornidez had studied my MR prior to my appointment and when I arrived he told me he felt he could help me. With a needle, he was able to break the cyst and I had no instant relief. One week out and I have no pain
