Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Had first epidural six years ago for sciatic pain and was pain-free for 6 years. Pain recently returned and had another epidural with good results. Staff is friendly, professional, no long waits for appointments, Dr. Gauthier is warm and professional and explains every step he is doing along the way. Makes you feel a part of the procedure and is very calming. Can't recommend he or staff enough!!

Dr. Gauthier has been awesome. He has done several injections for me. Very knowledgeable and I love the way he explains things and wants you to be a part of your own healthcare. I love the fact his answer is not to just hand out narcotics. I trust him and know I can count on him anytime even in a pinch. My number one choice of doctor if you need an injection.

Dr. Gauthier and his staff are super friendly. I love that everything in my appointment is consistent. Also when it comes to scheduling an appointment months later you don’t have to wait forever to see them. I personally recommend and talk about how great he is to everyone or anyone!!! This is one doctor you’ll never regret seeing ??

I have been seeing Dr. Gauthier for about 3 years when I need a steroid injection. I have had two double fusions so needless to say, I have chronic back issues. Dr. Gauthier is my number 1 doctor for injections. He is absolutely excellent at what he does and is the only doctor for me who can keep me calm while inserting a needle in between my nerves. He is the BEST!

Dr. Gauthier and his staff are amazing. I feel like they always put my needs first. He explains the procedure to ease any fears I might have. I spent years unable to raise my arm or turn my head. Thanks to his treatment, I am able to turn my head/lift for the first time in years. It's nice to be pain-free for once. I would definitely recommend him to anyone suffering from chronic pain.
