Patient Comments (3)
Portland, OR |
Due to recent CDC guidelines he cut my dose of narcotics in half (a does I had been taking regularly for for 4 years) for safety reasons. Which was ok but he did not cover the extra pain I had due to the cut back in narcotics. He told me my pain receptors would "reset" and I was "completly healthy". After 45 days of increased back pain (I have multiple level degeneration of the lower spine) I left. I don't think he really cared or believed me. I found a new provider that has helped me.

Extremely pleasant demeanor and presence. Dr. Hurst-Wicker and his staff were all professional and made me feel at ease with pain issues I was having despite my fear that it maybe more serious. I was provided an easy explanation of my symptoms and the roadmap to recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Hurst-Wicker to friends and family!

Dr. Hurst-Wicker is a skilled physician and diagnostician, and he is personable. He performs a thorough physical exam and history, and as a retired board certified emergency nurse, I know what how important those things are. No other pain doctor has done these things, or made me feel they are interested in my outcome. My pain will require ongoing care, but I have never experienced such success in pain reduction. He is my pain care partner and share my values for wanting integrative care.
