Did what my ortho doctor asked, but it was of no help. When I told doctor Bonocore his treatment did not help, he basically told me I was full of crap. I dont see him anymore.

Jason in OH – Nov 01, 2018
He is now in St Mary's Ohio. I waited 2 months for my appt. I get there and the nurse spent 30 min going over all my meds conditions etc. Then he comes in, glances at my conditions, and says he don't prescribe pain meds. That he can't help me, he don't know what would help for my problems. What a waste of time and gas! Should not call yourself a Pain management place if you refuse to prescribe pain meds for people with life altering pain! Stay far away from this one!

Caused severe pain in a completely different area during MMB. No communication at all. Worse doc I’ve ever been to. Going back to PCP and will deal with the pain.
