You will only meet him once. After that, all treatments and consultations are completed by nurses or PA's. He will switch you from your effective pain medicine to a less effective medicine that is politically correct, but not patient correct. It doesn't matter, you will not be prescribed Norco or similar

I actually see Dr Suderman at Javery Pain. He was very nice and explained everything quite well. I have been going there for about two years and the staff is very friendly. My Drs did change just recently but it didn't affect my treatment. I like the fact that you only have a consult every 5-6 months, as it saves time. If the treatment isn't working you can request a consult ahead of time. And I love the patient portal, you can do everything needed, request appointment, order refills etc ...
no time for patients, can't seem to keep staff always changing, you are just a number, no Dr patient relationship due to never seeing him. would not recommend him ever again

I have seeing him now for 8 years. He try doesn't care about his patients. All he wants to do is sell you a procedure and new medications and if you don't do it he will kick you out his practice by saying you werent compliment. Please run from him. They can't keep doctors in his practice and as well as staff. He loves to change your treatment plan without talking to you.

I would suggest for you to go somewhere else. I have been going to him for 10 years and he is getting away from treating patients properly. Instead, he is more like "get them in and get out quick." I use to see him before my procedures and I don't anymore. I am lucky to see him once a year. He also changes your treatment without discussing it with you. He just does it and you have to find out from a nurse. I urge you to not come here.

This doctor has total disregard for his patients' time. Some doctors occasionally run late, but this practice ALWAYS sees you an hour or more AFTER your scheduled appointment time. They even ask you to come 15 minutes early so that you end up always waiting about an hour and a quarter (or more) for your scheduled appointment.

After having a horrible experience at MPC my primary recommended Dr. Javery's office. It was a night and day experience. Dr Javery and Aaron Greene have improved my quality of life so much. I have a 12 year old son and a few years ago I could not even play catch with him. Now I do everything a father should be able to do with his son. Everyone I have met there has been so pleasant and helpful. Especially Pat at the registration desk. I would highly recommend this office to anyone in pain.

I started seeing Javery approximately 3 1/2 years ago. I was so impressed with him at that first consultation and he repeated multiple times that due to the severity of my condition it was a rule he had that every 3 months I had to have an appointment with him versus the P.A. I totally agreed and was actually thrilled that a doctor cared. It's been 3? yrs and I have no idea what he even looks like .Run people run!

I Have been seeing Dr. Javery about 18yrs and my life is so much better for doing so! I have recommended him to many. Some have heeded my advice and life is better for them! I had one dear friend go with me and with permission she went in to talk with him. He answered questions that took care of her need for pain management. That is a quality doctor! Dr. Javery is a quality doctor who answers all my questions whether it's an answer I want to hear or not, because he is honest. Always truthful!

Dr Javery has and is a huge part of my pain management program. My quality of life has gotten so much better with his help. I have a multi faceted approach to my pain problem that includes Chiropractic, massage, nutritional support, exercise, and nerve block shots. I reccomend Javery Pain Clinic to everyone I meet with chronic pain problems!

He put me in the hospital twice, first MRSA in my neck next hematoma T3 to T8, I said I was in extreme pain in recovery and was ignored never made it home went straight to hospital and was paralyzed from ribs down. He also thinks all my other doctors are wrong.
