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.

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

Appointment desk personnel are very rude. They have so many patients they canot handle them. They do not care about their patients' pain. They are not helpful nor compassionate.

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.

He took the time to explain his plan of action for the best management for my pain. I was very impressed.

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.
