Unprofessional office staff, unethical billing practices and incompetent billing company.

I don’t pick a doctor at random, I investigate what doctor to see by getting recommendations from people who work within the hospital, within the specialty for which I'm seeking a doctor. Not everyone has the ability to vet their doctors as I do, but, I can assure you, Dr. Mortensen was highly recommended. Scheduling and rescheduling my appointments were simple and convenient. Nothing but a positive experience during my appointments with Dr. Mortensen and the staff at Innovative Pain Care.

I would never recommend Dr Mortenson to anyone. His primary focus is money vs a patient. When it takes his staff over 6 weeks to get a prior authorization, that in reality, after checking with my insurance, never needed one.....it still was another 2 weeks to schedule. Where does that leave a patient? It leaves a patient suffering an unnessary 2 months, because of lousy and incompetent staff.

If you want to go to a pain clinic with absolutely no compassion then you've found your doctors. None of them care. I don't understand why they are pain doctors when they don't care when someone is suffering. Do yourself a favor, go elsewhere. These jerks don't deserve your money!!!! Even the secretary is rude.

I would love to give a review on the doctor, but in the 4 years that I've been seen under his care at the Franklin location, I have seen him twice. One of those times, he was administering facet injections and I was receiving laughing gas, so I'm not sure that time even counts. I am constantly told Well, Dr. Mortensen says/thinks ___ but when asked if I can see the man who is supposedly providing answers and care from afar...the answer is somehow always No.?

when called after procedure due extreme headache, pain, and nausea I was told it's Friday, why don't you go out for a fish fry. If I would've known that a fish fry would cure my condition, I'd go every week. I would give zero stars, but that wasn't an option.
