    I have been going to Dr. Hale for over a year. He is involved in my care, making sure I am getting the correct medications and follow up. Dr. Hale answers my questions and makes suggestions to reduce my high level of pain.I have also gone to his physical therapy and was impressed by the personal. quality care I received. Not only is Dr. Hale a good physician, he is charming and has a wonderful sense of humor. My one negative is the length of time at the office. Bring a book and snack, but go.

    Recently Dr. Hale fired a number of problemed staff. I believe this will help his practice substantially. He still spends too much time on the phone which makes the scheduled patient feel he is inconsiderate. His average wait time is 4 hours (no exaggeration). He is a wonderful doctor, caring so much it makes his wait times hours later than a patient's appointment. Nothing but his appointment can be done in that day.

    nds the BEST individualized Treatment Plan possible, doesn't tolerate ANYONE that doesn't legitimately need him, continuously does ANYTHING possible to further his already top-notch Patient Care AND skills, & just so much more! I actually had the best of luck YEARS ago first when I was "led to" one of the, if not THEE BEST, Neurologists in existence, & then again when HE eventually referred me to Dr. Hale for my (unfortunate) chronic Pain Management. These two Doctors basically saved my life!

    Dr. Hale is a wonderful Dr, and I would have continued to see him if I hadn't moved out of state. I had Dr. Hale as my pain management/orthopedic Dr. for many years and never considered changing Drs. I found him to be a very concerned and caring physician. He had always maintained a very professional lawful practice and continues to keep his practice running on the up and up, abiding by the rules imposed. The only hesitation in moving was leaving my wonderful drs.with him up there on my list

    Just passed 4 hours waiting to get in for my 1 PM appointment, it,S 5 PM. Missed 4 hours work so this has cost me about $150 so far but this guy could care less. If had it to do again I would avoid this doctor. The staff has picked up on the let them wait attitude also. All you hear is all the patients commenting on how long they have waited.The Doctor only knows how to collect $$ but not a clue how to manage a medical office. Bring books, laptop, lunch and dinner and learn to stay calm.
