very caring and understanding of the amount of pain that I was having. Is very willing to work with me in choosing a doctor that is closer in distance to me and able to do injections in my back to help with the pain not real thrilled with the telephone service. I tried four time to contact his office and it hung me up on all four calls. grrrr

At first I was impressed by Dr. Schabacker. I was promised a referral for a pain pump and it never happened. I saw Dr. Schabaker for more than a year and was prescribed pain meds that didn’t always work. I was in tears many times in his office and explained the pain. I was drug tested and had THC due to visiting a state where it’s legal. I was in pain and can’t take more pills so had no choice. I was cut off to withdraw and suffer in pain. I was accused of lying, never got the needed referral

He actually listens to what I said to him. He recognized that I had chronic pain. He has always been nice. He makes what has become a anxiety producing appointments easy and stress free. If you have chronic pain he's the one to see, hands down

This Doc is professional and straightforward. I like the guy. Doesn't stare at you like you are a bug under a microscope......if you've ever had one of those doctors.

I have always found Dr. Schabacker to be extremely professional and empathetic. Without his help to find the correct treatment for me, my family, and my lifestyle, I would not be enjoying a fuller life today. I recommend Dr. S. to anyone who is suffering today and truly wants help.

I will have to give this dr. Michael schabacker MD Stars. the main reason I will give this doctor five stars is because he had doesn't have a computer sitting in front of him. he sits on a rolling stool in front of you while he looks you in the face and lets you talk. He asks questions and goes over with you the next step. He is very adamant about making sure he covers everything in each 20-minute visit no time is wasted. He has a great bedside manner. He shows empathy. I love his staff.

1st appointment today. Extremely impressed with Dr. Schabacker’s bedside manner. Very compassionate, knowledgeable, explained/answered questions. Did not feel rushed through at all. Entire staff in his office also kind/professional. Very impressed with the strict and straightforward regulations to enter/remain a patient in his practice. Seems to me this is the way pain mgmt practice should be run.

I was super skeptical when I was referred to this clinic. After my appointment today, I am so relieved. Dr. Schabacker is very caring and compassionate and put me at ease immediately. Communication is so important with a doctor and he listened patiently to my concerns. I was treated very respectfully by the front office staff and nurse as well. If you're feeling nervous about an upcoming appt like I was, no need to worry.

I've been a patient of Dr. Schabacker's for 15 years. He is compassionate, honest, follows strict regulations regarding treating chronic pain and has an A+ bedside manner. He's truly a professional in every way. My concern is what will happen when he retires? Pain Management is not an easy specialty due to the DEA constantly watching. They will not find any wrong doing in his clinic. Patients, once referred & accepted, sign a strict Pain contract. Those who violate the contract are dismissed.
