Piss poor performance. Would not keep me on meds I had been on 14 years and was able to have a great career, social life, etc! I never saw him once, His nurse Could only prescribe tylenol#3. So he insisted on these expensive injectionswhich broke me. Before last surgery I asked him to put me back on meds I was taking before so I could get back to functioning again. " I swear to god, he said there not doing u any good? Really? I work everyday! Had sex! Now I can't walk. Don't use him!

Dr. Phillip's practice is a "unusual" set up. He has multiple offices, with only 2 doctor's rotating that only see you at the 1st appt. The rest of your care is done by nurse practioner's . He is a mostly "procedure" pain person, which is hard for patient's that do not fit in this environment. If you are not a person who will do procedures, this is not for you. He is quite educated & very knowledgeable, which is a shame due to the set up of the company.
