I have been seeing Dr. Iyer for many years and she has absolutely saved my life and given me a quality of life that I did not have with other pain management doctors that wanted to make me their guinea pig or over medicate me she has found a combination of medications and that works great now I'm able to walk and have a wonderful quality of life and she is a god-sent. I would not know what it means to live with out Dr. Iyer... Thank you for restoring a life that I now have because of you Dr..

The BEST pain management doc I've been to see. I've been to many over the years. She knows exactly what she's doing. She finds the point of the pain & will do an ESI, or MMB, whichever she deems necessary, according to medical guidelines. At times I have a RF done. Something like a machine is used, & finds the perfect spot to burn the end of the nerve. Amazing hands. I don't go there to get drugs to get high. I need pain relief to try to have quality of life. And you won't have to wait

I was treated by Dr. IYER for twenty years for severe chronic back pain, and I am so appreciative of her knowledge, compassion and conservative prescribing methods. She used every possible alternative holistic method of treating me, taught me how to meditate, exercise, and use positive thinking to deal with my severe physical pain. She is a healer. She listens and give suffering patients an arsenal of methods to r elieve their pain. She helped me. I now take no meds. She is a great physician.
