First , I have never seen such a pumping of high star comments which obviously was/were performed by marketing individual (see their web page) / Second, Once the poster of their new office improvements was displayed everything became about the money. I was constantlantly harrassed to the point of exhaustion to get injections which was clearly stated by my oncologist NO STEROIDS . Next surgery to burn nerve endings was on the $$$ train. I had just been in the hospital for 6 weeks and surgery was STRONGLY frowned on unless a life saving event. In a nutshell, Don't waste your time . Florida pain medicine has been turned into a cash cow which has resulted into them losing the best Dr's they had to other practices with scruples and caring for patients. The last straw was when a great Dr that has since left said he would have to check his professional decision with his Boss, Bhalani. I hope enough read this before it gets purged from this page as they do often. count the STARS for yourself.

I couldn't ask for any better care than what I received with Florida Pain Medicine. The staff greeted me with kindness and courtesy. Dr. Bhalani was caring, he listened to my concerns and explained everything to me in a way that I could understand. I'm practically pain free!

I like Dr Bhalani, he is very helpful, polite and caring. The staff is nice, but the overbooking and waiting 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hrs is absurd!! My time is no more valuable than his... a very inconsiderate practice. This happens with every appt I make done. I am done

They really do listen, help fix, suggest, or refer, whatever the case may be. I talk to my friends, family, or whomever asks about my pain management or procedures and I refer to here.

Dr Bhalani listens to my multiple concerns. On this visit specifically I needed injections in both knees and, although he was all booked up, he found an appointment for me. I appreciate Dr Bhalani's knowledge and pleasant personality.

I did not like this doctor at all. He is rude, condescending and arrogant. He walks around his workplace like he is the supreme healer. He avoids speaking directly with his patients most of the time. Maybe he should be more thankful and gracious to the patients that Provide his paychecks. This doctor needs a course in kindness also a course In humbleness.

Dr Bhalani's Zephyrhills office is fantastic! He and all of his staff are very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and they always put you at ease. Today, I was called back for my appointment five minutes early and was seen by the physician within ten minutes. That, to me is time well spent.
