I went there on Oct 4 2019 and got a shot in my neck. I was pain free for two months.I have tried numerous times to get another and am in great pain. My wife and I have called the scheduler and nurse many times and not a call back.The Dr is great but the staff really is lacking compassion.

Although Dr. Hale is a personable physician he's fallen into the arena of doctors who refuse to go the extra mile for a patient. With recent laws in effect regarding opioid-based medications for treatment of chronic pain Hale voluntarily restricts his ability to properly write scripts matching the patients individual circumstance. He's now using the "one size fits all" method of prescribing. Many patients living in serious pain are not adequately treated according to TIPS Mission Statement.

He has done wonders controlling my pain from my severe back problems. I hold him and his P.A. in the highest regard. Re the comment awhile back re the poor scheduler - that person is no longer there, and the new scheduler is very prompt in returning calls. I have been under his and his P.A.'s care for many years.

Dr Hale is awesome. His scheduler is very poor. She returns calls a week later if she returns them at all. Time for the unemployment line!

My experience with Dr Hale was excellent. He and his staff were informative before the procedure. I had no pain during my epidural. So far, this treatment has alleviated my hip pain. I would definitely recommend Dr Hale.

I have been with Dr. Hale for over 10 years now. I do not know where I would be today without his expertise and support. A friend suggested I go to him after a NOT-SO pleasant experience with a different specialist. But this has been a great fit and I am grateful for the support over these years through some pretty tough physical challenges.
