Skillful, expert at pain relief, compassionate and caring. Dr. Rock has treated my Mother 5 times this year. He relieved her severe back pain, when so many other experts could not. Dr. Rock relieved my Mother's fears and produced real and lasting pain relief with radio ablation therapy. Dr. Rock is a wonderful, caring and skillful pain specialist and has dedicated his life to relieving the pain of others. He steers his patients away from dependency on medication to life changing solutions

Biggest jerk ever met. Rx several redundant analgesics along with Vicodin and morphine patches. Two days later in er for overdose. When drs found out who rx them they commented he was known for this and have seen several of his patients. When they called him he NEVER called them back. Good luck he won't be there after hours will charge you if you call for advice. Rumor from other sources says he has been in trouble with DEA for not reporting all Rx also. Up too you! I wouldn't trust him again

In 2001, I began to experience severe pain throughout my neck, mid-back, and tailbone area. After two separate spinal fusions in 2004 and a third procedure in 2013, my pain level increased. I began working with Dr. Rock in 2003. I found Dr. Rock to think outside the box, and after reviewing my test results, began a 360 program to improve my quality of life. Dr. Rock's approach has also included inserting a spinal cord stimulator which has reduced my lower back pain by 50%

I have a neurological chronic pain disorder. Until Dr. Rock, I was seriously struggling to not only function but find a reason to live. He was the first doctor, of many, to diagnose my disease and offer aggressive treatment. And, he recognized and understood how devastating my disease was to my life and my mental state. Dr. Rock is incredibly patient, intelligent and empathetic. He listens, explains and takes action, doing anything and everything he can to help 24/7. He is an exceptional doctor.
