Let me start by saying the staff and nurses are just awesome. This Doctor is a pain management Doctor. My M.D. referred me to do to back pain. I respond well to physical therapy and traction and was a bit surprised that after viewing the MRI they wanted to start by jabbing needles in my back for nerve block diagnostics with burning several nerve ends off with a final surgery. Let me also say that the Doctor and Chad who helps him out have a bad bedside manor and 0 sympathy for the patients.

Dr, NP and all the staff are awesome!!! As a cancer pt dealing with alot of drs, Dr. Ranson is I think one of the few genuinely caring drs left..It's not in and out like many corporate/private,offices--he always has time to chat and really gets to know pts as people, not just a condition..His whole office has the same attitude...As much as I despise the pain and reason I am there, so thankful I am..honestly believe I wouldn't get this care anywhere else.
