He’s an absolutely wonderful Doctor and person. He is so kind and caring.... He truly feels your pain and wants to help you. And he only hires kind, caring personnel....Andy, who is the Doctors medical assistant, manages to make me laugh ?? no matter how much pain I’m in. He is a deeply spiritual, gentle,health care provider. Do not hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Formosa.

Waited for 2 hours in a freezing cold waiting room smelling of bbq.Never received apology for the long wait.Dr. Formoso is a mediocre doctor at best. He did not even review my prior records or look at my injured leg. He just wanted to push meds and send me on my way. After my visit, I never received a callback in which I requested calming meds for MRI...simple request!!! I refuse to return for 2nd visit. This was the worst doctor I have ever seen and I wush there was a 0 star option.

Dr. Formoso does not have one positive attribute. His staff is rude, the wait time is in excess of an hour, and the waiting area is dirty. When you finally see the doctor, he is inconvenienced that you are there at all. I received treatment from the physician and in a short period of time, I went from uncomfortable to having pain so severe that I could not walk and an infection in my bones from stem cell injections delivered by the doctor with no end in site. DO NOT SEE THIS DR.!

Dr. Formosa write up. which should be titled "House of Horrors" I started my search for pain management doctors on account that I had not had any success in seeing a sports medicine and spine specialist for the discomfort I had in my lower back, which through MRI's had shown that I had arthritis in my lower back in the facet joints. The Sports medicine and spine specialist did suggest seeing a pain management doctor and so the search began. There of course were many pain management doctors an

I believe Dr Formoso wants to do best by his patients. He did take a good hour with me to go over everything with me and years of wrong diagnosis. We are trying to get to the bottom of what is causing my pain other than slapping bandaids on it. I no longer want to take drugs and want to FIX the problem. However, his front desk lady at the East Park location is not a medical professional though she might think she is. She was judgemental and mouthy without prompt. Termination for behavior is sug
