Dr. Monis is the most compassionate and caring Doctor I have ever met. My pain is chronic and he recognized it immediately. He helped me to ensure I do not suffer and made recommendations to improve my quality of life. He has given me my life back! I can never repay him... Thank you Dr. Monis.. In tears at how he cares for me. All typed from the bottom of my heart. Richard

Dr. Monis is a highly sought after specialist in his field. However, office (exam room) wait time was one hour at each of my appointments. My time is valuable as well as his time. I'm very disappointed. Also, he spent very little time me overall and I felt rushed.

I trust Dr. Monis, and I do think is very knowledgeable I did have to wait 21 days for his next avail appointment when i had to reschedule due to illness (I did have a medication shortage and had to deal with it on my own.) Dr. Monis doesn't spend much time in an appointment. He assumes I know things when I have don't unless he tells me. I have to ask questions in the hall every apt when he should have talked to me enough during the appointment to explain treatment every time.

He is an amazing doctor! Babcock location is very good. Dr. Monis is very compassionate and will listen and talk with you. I have had other pain specialists look down on me because of my insurance. He treats me with respect and kindness. Great man and great doctor. Sure dont have many like this anymore.
