I have been Dr. John Rober's patient for 9 years. He, and his wonderful team, have consistently managed my long-term pancreatitis pain and sciatic pain in an excellent manner. The clinic is professionally and efficiently run from patient records to admissions to procedure execution to follow-up. The team members are courteous, friendly, and efficient. Every team member mentions how well the clinic takes care of them as employees and care providers. Dr. Roberts continues to expand his knowledge and offer new approaches and procedures for pain management. I highly recommend Dr. Roberts and TVPM for patients looking for long term solutions to acute pain management.

L. Scott in TN – Jun 14, 2018
I have been a patient with Dr Roberts For over five years. I find he and his staff are professional, efficient, and effective. They are genuinely concerned about my physical well being. Dr Roberts had never failed to ask how I am doing or to take time to ensure I understand exactly what is happening in the procedure. Dr Roberts has always been available for an office visit and his Physician's Assistants handle each visit professionally. I have never left his office unsatisfied.

Janet T. Poole in Athens, AL – Jan 28, 2017
I have severe arthritis in my lower back, keeping muscles and tendons inflamed with frequent bouts of painful muscle spasms, some so strong they tore muscles. I was a 61 year old defense weapons systems analyst, but was having to quit work because of my lower back pain and pain medications. I am now 68 and still working. The shots don't heal the arthritis, but receiving them every 90 days decreases pain 70% to 90% across the period between shots. John Roberts is 100% my hero.

Tom H in Huntsville, AL – Jul 23, 2016
Overall - Unacceptable experiences w/TN Valley Pain / Dr. Roberts include: 1. Initial face meeting w/Dr. Roberts occurred only minutes prior to outpatient procedure. 2. Insufficient (local) anesthesia applied 10 seconds before (deep) back shot. Excruciatingly painful. 3. Unprofessional front office-to-patient communications, delays, rushed demeanor. 4. No written confirmation provided for outpatient procedure to confirm date/time/place/type/anesthesia. I won't return. .
