Went to Dr. Proano, in September 2016, for a hip cortisone shot, came away with a cortisone flare and a staph infection, which I am still suffering from. Soon after, after trying to reach him several times, he finally showed up for 5 minutes, while I was in the hospital. Have spoken to him once since that time, and have not heard a word from him since. Would have been nice if he tried to contact me over the past 6 months, to see how I was doing.

I would NEVER recommend this dr to ANYBODY! I saw him 1 time at hospital for T-spine epidural. He yelled at the attending nurse, the flouroscope tech & me. I was given only a small local, then he "stabbed" me, my arm began jumping uncontrollably. The nurse was trying to comfort me & said it was ok to scream. Another nurse asked how it went. "She felt EVERYTHING!"I began to dress then was told I had been sedated & had to wait. I left immediately. Negative side fx lasted a week. Never saw dr again

When I came into Dr. Proano's office in April, I shuffled in on a walker because of a botched procedure from a doctor in Hermosa Beach. Dr. Proano listened to what I had to say. He said we would try and make my pain go away. After the first epidural I was a little better and was able to walk with still some pain. I then had two more epidurals, and I have not had any pain medication since June. I am a very happy patient.

Began using Dr. Proano in May, 2016 following the retirement of my pain management physician. I am in chronic pain from an automobile accident. Extremely difficult case. My care has been excellent. Office is quite busy but my care has not been compromised what so ever.
