I have been going to various Pain Clinics for 15 years and Dr. Celestin, is by far the best, most responsive, compassionate and skilled pain killer. I am grateful for how he quickly treated me with very effective nerve blocks and he has so many other options and TRULY wants you pain free!

I was referred to him by my orthopedic in New Hampshire. He is outstanding. Not just the medicine he practices but his manner. Frankly, most Dr are hard to deal with. I'm actually looking forward to seeing him again.

Dr. Celestial found the cause of my pain which had eluded others. I brought him a copy of my MRI, and instead of just reading the report (which completely missed the problem) he reviewed the MRI itself and found the problem. I'm reviewing from his time at Harvard Pilgrim.

Dr. Celestin has cared for both myself and my wife. As previously noted, he is not there to write prescriptions, but to come up with best root cause treatment available. As a result of his skills I'm getting around extremely well with next to no pain, this after being incapable of walking more than 20 feet.

Dr. Celestin is a great doctor who listens, really listens to you when you're describing your problems. He's very intuitive and genuinely cares about finding the right solution for you. He knows what he's doing. He doesn't just write scripts and send you on your way. I like that about him. He wants to find the long term fix for your issues. I'm so glad he's my doctor.
