Cold. Doesn't listen. Pre determined treatment no matter what the consequences are.

The review from Sara is obviously from his office. Anyone who ever saw this quack knows he should not be a doctor.

Been a patient of APA for 2+ years, met John one time and it was like he truly didn't care about my health issues but rather saw me as a pill hound. Was drug tested a lot during my time with APA which is understandable and necessary but always took my meds as prescribed. Wages did his UDA on me and never saw him after that but they changed the policy and now send it out and charge your insurance. Got a big bill in the mail and was treated so poorly by APA Billing staff I am never going back.

I have to admit, once I was scheduled and read some reviews, a little part of me worried. But, I believe now my suspicions were correct that the bad reviews were likely drug-seeking people who didn't get what they wanted. I came to see Dr. Wages wanting help finding answers about my pain, and I couldn't have been more impressed. He sat down and explored my history with me and the different possible causes and possible treatments. I greatly appreciated his thoughtfulness and expertise.

Dr. Wages, doesn't lesson to his patients, and likes to do the more expensive medical treatment. And will up and leave and have a nurse finish the office visit. When you have a drug Urien test done the windows or always full makes you wonder how safe the test are they do.

Dr. Wages clearly does not care about his patients, his staff or how he does business. He has a track record of only being available for the first appointment and then pushing the heavy lifting onto his clinical staff who are not always given the tools to help patients. he makes 0 exceptions and runs his clinic out of a 1960's textbook. He has a lack of empathy and logical reasoning. LITERALLY ANY DR IS BETTER!!!!

I would never ever recommend Dr. wages to anyone in pain.
