I had an appointment for 8 am and arrived at 7:30. The office wasn't open yet so I waited in the hallway. After a few minutes another patient showed up and began to wait as well. Then another patient showed up to wait as well. We all had 8 am appointments. The staff opened the door at 8:02. I filled out my COVID-19 paperwork and waited at the desk. About 10 minutes later the receptionist showed up and greeted one of the patients by name and grabbed her file and placed it in the rack for the nurse. Then she grabbed the other patients file and put it in the rack. At 8:30 she asked for my name. After I told her my name I explained that I had an 8 AM appointment and I was waiting since 7:30 before anyone else. she said just go have a seat and They'll call you. Then they proceeded to call me in at 8:38. I went into the exam room and told the nurse that I have to be at an appointment at 9. Long story short the doctor wasn’t there. I came back at 1 and he had no memory of doing my injections

I have had my back fused at the lower end and also broke one vertebra that didn't heal like I hoped it would. Because of this I have gone to several Pain management Dr's in the Bakersfield area where the first three were a total joke. Then I got referred to Dr. Brazill and what a breath of fresh air. I can't say much about his bed side manner, but who cares. His surgery center is top notch and the same for all of his assistants, and same goes for what he has done for me.

Dr Brazil is a grumpy old man that is so angry with the way meds are controlled that he does NOT care for his patients anymore. He even told me all he cares about is retiring with enough money before FDA takes everything away. He is MEAN and will make you cry and feel like nothing! His other Drs in his office are wonderful and try to help as much as they can. Dr. Brazil pushes epidurals on everyone even if you have a reaction to it because he performs the surgeries so it's more money for him. Same goes for the Stimulator!! He is a horrid man that needs to be fired asap before he kills another patient.

My first visit was horrible. I waited over 1.5 hours to see the doctor. When I saw him he wouldn't even let me finish a sentence. I felt rushed and like he didn't care. Now I'm waiting to get an epidural and come to find out he is running very late. He has cost me money on both occasions. I had to miss work both days. I missed 2 hours on my first visit and 4 hours today. This is so unacceptable in my opinion.

I was seeing this Dr. for the past 4 years. I'm in my 60's, disabled, and I've been in pain for many years. I've had many failed back surgeries, also for my arm, and knee. I've been on the strongest pain relieving patches for the past 12 years. I don't use any ilegal drugs, nor alcohol. I've been following the office procedures to keep receiving my pain patches. Approximately 6 months ago, I couldn't urinate, even though I tried. Dr Brazill himself stated I could return, and give a sample. It didn't seem to be a problem since I was trustworthy. I returned within 2 days, and I was told I was being dismissed from his practice. I didn't understand, and I was confused. I tried explaining that I was allowed to return by the Dr. himself. His staff didn't care at all, and I was also being lied to. I was forced, threatened to sign a document that I didn't agree with. If I didn't, I wouldn't get my last prescription by them. I was given a list of other Dr's I can see. I don't recommend this Dr

I was referred to this Dr from my PCP to help me with my pain meds. This Dr. came in, and he didn't even introduce himself. He ordered a MRI of my back. As soon as he saw my pain medication, he basically said "I can't help you". No options were considered. He took the MRI order back, and sent me back to my Dr.

I’ve been seeing the doctors at this place for a few months now...can’t complain about the them but the office staff is another thing! The rudest people I have ever encountered. The people that go into their offices are people who live in pain and deserve at least a little sympathy. It would be in the best Interest if the doctors at this establishment to listen to their patients about their concerns. As a patient, I live up to my agreement and contract and I expect to be treated fairly. Period!

Dr Brazill has the bedside manner of laboratory scientist, if you want to be his lab rat be my guest. The only thing he wants to do is poke you with needles for a treatment that is experimental and not proven effective. (It actually causes deterioration) I had 4 injections already. He gives you no choices or options other than that. I traveled over an hour to his office. He didn't attempt to shake my hand. He didn't read my chart. Asked me "What my deal was?" and told me to go back to my Dr.

I have been dealing with a college sports injury for nearly 20 years , I have had experience with many of the top leading pain speacialists in Bakersfield , and across the country. Although I have not been able to stop my pain , after countless procedures and failed surgery. I will say Dr Brazill has been the most thorough of all my pain speacialists and I would recommend him to anyone seeking a pain management Doctor. He is also more compassionate and I feel he has listened and truly cared!
