DR. Gorback is a very professional and knowledgeable pain management doctor that is dedicated to the improvement of his patients. The treatment I received was administered in a very professional and competent manner. Appointments were attended to a prompt manner and his explanation of treatment was very easy to understand. If improvement or pain management of a condition is truly your aim ,I highly recommend him. If your aim is solely for the prescription of drugs, one should go elsewhere.

He was very rude,poor bedside manners. Does not listen to his patients. Center for pain relief, what a joke! I would not reffer my worst enemy to see him.

Dr. Gorback is a professional and caring doctor. He gets to the root of your pain and doesn't just give out pain medicine. He did a procedure on my knee and now I am pain free. My family and I are very thankful. I recommended my husband to see Dr. Gorback in regard to his back and hip pain. Dr. Gorback had a x-ray and MRI done on my husband to make sure he knew exactly what he needed to treat. He is very a great doctor. My husband came home with hope in his eyes. Thanks Dr. Gorback.

Wow, wow, wow! It's so nice to find a doctor who listens to you and explains things. His staff is very nice. The doctor is sort of formal and never addresses you by your first name but his nurse gives hugs and the receptionist is very sweet. He has helped me a lot. He told me up front that I had several problems and that it was going to take a lot of work. He does one problem at a time and it took a while but we got there.
