i have had 3 injections in my back by Dr Learner, found him & his staff very friendly & helpful. he explained the procedure in detail to me. my last injection was 4 months ago & I haven't had any pain until last wk, so will be calling for an appointment soon. I am very satisfied with him & the staff.

I felt better educated as to my source of pain, my options, and reaching my goal which is an active functioning life with out invasive back surgery. I had a failed injection done by another physician which left me fearful. Dr. Lerner explained why a different injection could work better, and it did. I am down from an 8 to mild discomfort, and that is just at the injection site. It was not suggested but I do recommend keeping a journal because he is very receptive to information in treatment.

I have been to different back pain doctors with varying degrees of effectiveness before being treated by Dr. Lerner. Finally I have located to right doctor for me. I find Dr. Lerner extremely knowledgeable and helpful and his staff are equally courteous and helpful. My excruciating back pain has lessened considerably under Dr. Lerner's care and I would highly recommend him to everyone experiencing such maladies. Kudos to Dr. Lerner and his staff.

Treats you like a drug addict on first visit without knowing anyanything about you.

I have had nothing but good things to say about Dr. Lerner and his staff. I walked into his office for an epidural this morning with a pain number of a 7 left at a 2 and now 6 hours later am at 1. Even with the office very crowed this morning. Yet when I did get to see Dr. Lerner he took the time to answer my questions. I feel he really is concerned about his patients as is the rest of the staff. Rosie

Dr. Lerner was very rude, and would not listen to anything we tried to tell him. He assumed my brother wasn't in any pain and was just like 95% of the population who experience back pain. He had not looked at any test results that were sent to him nor did he have one of the most recent MRI scans. I have dealt with many wonderful doctors, but this one should not be practicing.
