I had been promised and pre-approved for a specific procedure to relieve pain. The day of the procedure all final approvals were reviewed and agreed to and understood by multiple healthcare providers including the anesthesiologist and alshon. When I was already under anesthesia alshon performed a different procedure which I would have never agreed to if i had been awake.

Dr. Alshon has been my quality of life lifesaver. He takes the time to listen and works with me to find a better solution to ease the daily pain. He understands the "plug and play" doesn't work for all human machines. He also keeps updated in the medical field often telling me new studies coming out affecting my medical issues. I am very happy to have found Dr. Alshon. If I didn't like Dr. Alshon I sure would have not given any of my homemade Mango Jam that I stood and made through all this COVID-19. We are still looking to get relief but I'm very sure Doc will find a Solution real soon, and to everyone else who complains about the scheduling, if your looking for a great doctor Dr. Alshon is he one and "PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE" you have to wait for the best!

JOSEPH ALSHON is a terrible, rude, bully of a doctor, not only does he make you wait 1-3 HOURS in the waiting room every single time, but he rushes you in and out of the room, doesnt answer your questions and is very unknowledgable about any pain issues you may have. I saw him a few times and finally had enough of his bullyish attitude that i went to see someone else in a different practice. his office is filthy dirty and they book 4 to 5 patients all at the same time. This office is a total "$$ grab" all they care about is getting your $, JOSEPH ALSHON is terrible, do not see him, he is the worst medical doctor i have seen in 20+ years. Unless you like being bullied by a doctor!? 0 stars if i could!

Doctor Alshon is great and listens to you explain your core complaints. The office staff on the other hand is very incompetent and rude they need to fire the office manager.

Dr Alshon is so caring and knowledgeable in chronic pain ,if you are suffering call this doctor I got injured and was mis diagnosed by orthopedic and neurosurgeons they did many surgeries that was supposed to stop the PAIN but didn't ,and was told sorry that's all we can do So if your suffering please don't give up there is a doctor that CARES still and will do everything to ease your pain, and not give up until he gets you a better quality-of-life I wish there was more doctors like this man

Dr. Alshon has been my doctor for the last 5 years. His bedside manner is kind and caring yet he also doesn't tell you what you want to hear, he tells you what is best for you.

I've been with dr. Alshon for 6+ years. It's fair to say that I was pleased with him from the very start. The one phrase I would use to sum him up is straight up. He takes all the time necessary to review your medical history and plug-in your verbal input to come up with the best diagnosis & pain management plan for your improved quality of life. He doesn't tell you what you want to hear he tells you what you need to hear. Basically your health and well-being is his top priority.

He is extremely professional and has a wonderful bedside manner. He has always listened to my concerns and finds the best solution for me. Honestly, he is the best doctor. I moved away for 3 year and moved back here last December. I've been a patient of his for the last 22 years. I wouldn't go to anyone else for my specific health needs.
