I want to provide our local chronic pain/cancer pain patients a truly confident summarization of what it is like at Interventional Pain Management Specialists, Florissant, Missouri Office. I'd highly recommend anyone whom truly is in need of pain management, to schedule a consultation appointment with either: Mahendra P Gunapooti, MD or Jennifer Middendorf, ANP-C. They have such respect for not just me, but, other patients I see when I'm in their as well. They listen, provide, & take care ofyou

I called to make an appointment and the girl that answered the phone was ghetto and rude, she got an attitude because I was asking a question about being able to self refer to specialist myself. After I called my insurance company to have them call, we find out she didn't have the intelligence to say it was an internal policy for all. She even told me before I hung up on her the first call, I would not be seeing dr. G., I told her I guess I won't because the staff in RUDE. I got another pain dr.
