TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE
After receiving very high recommendations from 2 orthopedic doctors who couldn’t help me with bulging/herniated discs I was sent here. Very skeptical about Pain Management ,however I proceeded anyhow after having a bad experience about 5 years ago, being sent to a “drug factory” before the opioid crisis, where I obviously said no thank you to my 2nd appointment! After seeing his LPN, explaining my situation, and telling him that I was considering a Marijuana Medical card, but didn’t like the idea much (age 54 ), also how I have been shuffled through the medical system (at least 15 doctors, all who either said nothing I can do, or you have to live with it), in the past year. Take a copay of $75.00 on the way out! So, Grahling agrees with me, yes shuffling bad, copay with no results bad, then tells me to go somewhere else! Very unhelpful, agrees with you when convenient,yet does the opposite! DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU GO HERE!

Very disappointed. Dr. G has a prestigious educational history. He NEVER saw nor spoke to my husband. The determination to NOT treat my husband as a patient was related one the phone by the nurse practitioner. I respect the NP but was not given a chance to confer with Dr. Grahling. Extremely shocked.

I have been going to Dr, Grahling for over 10 years to control my pain. He is an exception physician and as a result of his expertise, I have remained a functioning member of society. Never did I think that was possible!

Very poor experience. Once procedure done you never see him again even when requested and you've had an adverse reaction. Staff initially nice but then rude when I tried to get appt to see Dr rather than nurse. Never told I would not see him for follow up. He did not have the professional behavior to call me after bad outcome. I had Botox injections for migraines. Made things worse and added new neck problem. Was told there was no down side to these injections which is false. Unprofessional
