Dr. Wages solved my excruciating neck pain issues with a facet nerve ablation procedure for which I'm eternally grateful. My back issues were improved as well. I've had no problem with his medication prescribing. I'm really sorry he's left this clinic.

Dr Wages, the receptionists and nursing staff are professional, knowledgeable and very pleasant. Patient care is top priority and Dr Wages never rushes you through an appointment. I appreciate the high level of service and care I receive in the PSA Cedar Park Clinic.

I have been seeing Dr. Wages for roughly 3 years. After relocating from another state, I started seeing Dr. Wages due to a specific source of chronic, severe, life debilitating pain. I had been treated by other providers at my previous address for years without much luck or help. From that very first visit, it was clear I had found a physician that cared about me and in whom I could have the utmost confidence. After my very first visit, Dr. Wages came up with an aggressive treatment plan to first get my pain under control - and then begin working a continuing and evolving systematic plan to find the right combination of meds to reduce my pain with the least dependence on large amounts of strong narcotics. Over the last three years under his care, I have been able to gradually reduce the number and strength of prescribed pain meds while simultaneously reducing the amount of daily chronic pain that had previously kept me from enjoying activities of choice. He gave me my life back.
