Very grateful to Dr Zhou for relieving my pain with epidural injections. I was very concerned to have this procedure but Dr Zhou thoroughly explained the procedure and put me at ease. I appreciated him showing and explaining my MRI and what needed to be done. The staff are very pleasant.

By far, the best and most trusted in his field. Dr Zhou is professional, and one of the most competent Pain Management Physicians around. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my spine. The reps from several trusted medical device companies who call on these physicians have told me that in their experience ,Dr Zhou is the best one , ( I had to meet with these reps to discuss options for myself. )He's efficient, very detail oriented and has a commitment to perfection.

I have been a patient of Dr.Zhou going on 2yrs now. Have had surgery from him meaning the stimulating for my RSD and I would never let anyone ever do or talk me out of this. He has been the best Dr. in every matter. Never had seen or been treated like he he does. The best ever!! 5 Star plus. Would talk to anyone who wants any information about his over all relationship with his patients and his work. Simply the best..

I met Dr. Zhou for the first time when I took my 78 year old father to his appointment on Friday, Dec 15. I was immediately impressed with Dr. Zhou's commitment to my father's well being and health and the goal of being pain free. I've never seen my dad become almost emotional when talking to me about Dr. Zhou before he (the doctor) even came in to the exam room. Dr. Zhou is professional, compassionate, super SMART, and yes, humorous.

I am very happy w Dr. Lunqiu Zhou aka Dr. Sniper... he was only doctor that explained in details what was going on with my lower back. And he also explained what I need to do to strengthen my back is very important to get better. I seen immediately differences in my back after I got the epidural injections that day and I am active again. I also cut back on a lot of my pain medications. I will refer him to anyone.. sincerely a happy patient

This doctor flat out told my husband he "wasn't a man" due to his severe back injuries. How can you say that to a human being who is already suffering from enough physical and mental pain??

Dr. Zhou took the time to understand what was going on with me. He reviewed in depth the results of my MRI and X-rays to make sure I understood what he was looking at and what was likely causing my pain. He even took out his models and explained them in detail so I could relate better. I was very hesitant to have anything injected into my body. Dr. Zhou explained my options and I ultimately chose an injection as well as doing exercises he recommended. I have been pain free for a week!

Dr. Zhou is a very caring individual. Being a person who has little faith in doctor, I was leery at first. But Dr Zhou has been a blessing. He goes the extra mile to explain your condition & treatment. He listens & answer all questions. Since going to him, there has been a big improvement. Thank you, Dr Zhou. Last but not least, the staff is very helpful & friendly. Thanks all.

One of the best Doctor one will ever have. He is very professional and treat patients really well and actually believe in curing the symptoms not like the other doctors who just want a patient to come back for no reason. ??

Dr. Zhou is the best doctor who has ever treated me for any condition. He treated me as if I was his most-favored patient, took his time to ensure I understood every aspect of my condition, and fully explained what was needed to improve it. He also listened to my concerns very attentively. My time was his time. He is a true gentleman who is extremely knowledgeable in his field, and committed to doing the best for his patient. I am grateful to him for helping me feel so much better.

Dr Zhou is a very compassionate and caring physician. He listens to the patient, takes as much time as needed. His skill is unmatched, after an epidural injection xxx I was pain free for more than 6 months. An excellent physician.

It was terrible ! From the beginning he was more focused on the fact that I am a plus size woman rather than assist with my medical concern. He even asked me do I eat a lot? Once I asked about what he was prescribing me he then starts shouting at me and was very rude! Even ripped up the first script he had written out for me. I have never felt so humiliated in my life! I would never recommend or return to this doctor in life! Ty

One month ago today I had my spinal cord stimulator surgery, for my migraines/headaches. That I've had for 17 years, they did not start out as bad but ended up being, daily on a range from 7 to 10.. The day I had surgery I went in with a 7 came home with NO headache, any headaches since have been below a 3 and can turn stimulator up and within 1/2 hour it's gone !!! Dr. Zhou thus far has changed my life, I'm SO, SO looking forward to a pain free future... So Very Thankful I found Dr. Zhou .
