I started with Dr. Schneider with two epidural injections with very little results. Next he recommended using a transdermal system then he progressed to MS contin which still had very minimal effect. I decided after all this to stop treatment. Then I found out later they had been charging me for drug screening at $240.00 per test and $100.75 for an information sheet they called a behavioral test plus $200.00 for a consultation every month in order to get a prescription for the pain meds.

I would recommend Dr, Schneider to anyone who is in a great deal of pain. I see Dr. Schneider for low back pain and he is the only Dr. who has been able to help me GREATLY with the pain. He is very professional and knowledgeable in his field of medicine and he is the only one that I trust to do any kind of procedure on my back, for I have been through back surgery in 1986 and ir is no fun, In1986 the Dr. had to open up my back to remove a very large rupture disc so I am particular who I see.

I go to the office on Seven Springs Way in Brentwood. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am with my treatment here. 1. The front office staff treats me like I'm an inconvenience. 2. I have left over a half dozen messages and have NEVER reached anyone and NEVER received a return call. 3. Never has NP Kimberly Prichard, made any effort to discuss or understand my pain 4. Today, the NP scolded me for going to the ER but she had no suggestions for when my pain gets unbearable.

I tried to use this clinic and from the very start I had issues. I came in complaining of Severe Lower Back Pain. They scheduled me for Injections. When I arrived the had me on the table and started to set me up for Injections on my NECK. I stopped them and they looked at the chart and nothing on my chart suggested anything for back pain. Even though they prescribed me OXYCODONE 10mg. Then a botched MRI (only neck not back) had to do another MRI. I am now looking for another Pain Clinic. No Star

Went to get pain injections, would not give them to me, nurse said they was not ever put in file. On top of that they owe me a credit of $50 SINCE DEC 2015-- called and called still have not received it, still billed my ins. co. for shots I never GOT. What kind of place is this. AND YES MY NAME IS KEITH JENKINS IF ANY QUESTIONS! ---------Met Dr. Schneider first office visit for about a total of less than 1 minute, said nurses would take care of me, oh yeah they will.
in Franklin, TN |
Dr. Schneider and his staff are FANTASTIC! They have been VERY COURTEOUS & PROFESSIONAL. Dr. Schneider & his staff care about his patients and listens to them. I was in the Medical field l many years,They operate a Professional practice that cares about their patients, and not just money, or your insurance. I would recommend Dr. Schneider and his staff to everyone. If you LEGITIMATELY are in pain they will help with an individual treatment plan for you. I trust them. Sincerely, Gregg Cozart

Dr. Schneider, from the very fist visit never said, Steve, I have your best interest at heart. HOWEVER, I KNEW HE DID !!! Not only from every word he said, but everything he DID. I've been going to Pain Clinics since 2006. This is the FIRST provider, Doctor or otherwise that has ever mentioned the words, Spinal Chord Stimulator to me !!!! I've been through 3 different Clinics and Institutes for PILLS and injections with NO HOPE of relief. UNTIL NOW !!! I GET MY LIFE BACK, THANKS DOC. !!
in Columbia, TN |
Dr. Schneider and Jordyn did such a great job with my injection!! I instantly felt relief!! I have never seen a doctor with such great skill. He is understanding of my pain and worked with me until we found a treatment plan that worked. If you hurt, don't put it off! Let Dr. Schneider take care of you!!

Dr Schneider has helped me try many different methods to treat my pain. Very professional and thorough.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
He is just interested in prescribing addictive medicine instead of looking into the cause of the pain. He does not have his patients best interest at heart and he spends very little time speaking with me to see how I'm feeling. If you want a script for narcotics, he's your guy.
in Nashville tennessee |
Did not see the Dr but one time his nurse practioner did not want to hear about the pain you are having and gives you meds your allgeric to and judges by your appearance on top of it if your out of town and didn't get a message they called they kick you out of their clinic
