I only have good things to say about this clinic. It is clean and the staff upfront works efficiently and are friendly. After car accident, my pain was unmanageable. Most of the time, I can't lay down . Dr. Li is a true professional. He is caring, asks questions, listens to my concerns, and provides answers with thorough explanations. I never felt rushed and he allowed me to express my medical concerns.

Fantastic pain management service! Dr. Li is very thorough and smart. His staffs are attentive. I have been seeing him for past 5 years for my lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain...Dr. Li has changed my life! He is straight-forward, but professional. The office has strict policy on opioid prescription. So drug seekers/addicts stay away or you will be disappointed.

Worse doctor ever! Horrible Bedside manners!!! rude and swore there is no such thing as carpel tunnel and explained it’s a “proven fact” that such an injury is not caused by repetitive motion.. said workers comp doesn’t owe me anything. Blamed my injury on “depression” and my “old age” I am 51 so I found that pretty insulting,” a total quack

Amazing rare pain management specialist who provided me with definitive long term results through noninvasive precision injections without the side effects of long term medication use. Dr. Kevin Li also maintains an unbiased open mind type attitude towards patient observations and sentiments.

He is a pain management quack (she does not deserve any other title). His 5 star reviews are fake, notice how they are written in broken English, specifically with a Chinese accent ("He is not pill pushers"). Unethical, horrible doctor.

One of the worst doctors I have ever met. He did nothing to treat my pain, and the front desk are a nightmare to talk to. Avoid like the plague.

I was referred to Dr. Li by my family doctor. I used to go to another pain doctor so I'm familiar with what to expect. Dr. Li is a different kind of doctor. He is very strict with opioid medication. When I called his office to schedule the appointment. I was told from front desk that Dr. Li doesn't prescribe opioid medication on the first visit, and he is very strict with opioid medication. Which is good, because I don’t want my body to addict to opioid things any more. Dr. Li management my m

There's a sign on the front receptionist's office saying something like no opioid medications. I was kinda surprised to see this but it doesn't bother me at all as I'm looking for anything but narcotics. Overall, the visit was smooth and my questions were answered in details and I will be going back to see Dr. Li when my low back pain gets worse again.

Dr Li took my pain away with two injections. I had lumbar stenosis and as soon as I got two injections I was pain free. Dr. Li always takes his time and I never felt rushed. I strongly recommend him to my friends and family members.

I was tired of pain docs over-prescribing opioid medication to me even though they hadn't work. Dr. Li was clear on opioid prescription policy and was frankly very strict about it. It's perfect since I have been looking for someone to find solutions to my pain problem without doping me. Would highly recommend Dr. Li to whoever needs real pain management.

His office told me that my insurance would cover my appointment, but they needed $50.00 for a reservation fee, so I paid it. When I got to there office the women said I had to pay $150.00 for my appt. but would get it back. So I met with the Dr. Li and he told me I was a good fit for suboxone treatment, so I believed he was going to give me my script. Instead he told me my insurance does not cover his services and that I need to go to a lab for urine & maybe he will give me a script next time.
