Patient Comments (9)
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.

I have never been so disappointed in a medical professional in my life. My daughter is in need of pain management for chronic pain as well as the counseling to learn to live with it. She was denied that by Dr Schumacher. She was denied because supposedly in 2014, before we were even looking into pain management, she was a no show at an appointment. She wasn't even doctoring in Billings back then. The specialist even personally called him and he agreed to see her but changed his mind..

My mom saw Dr last fall. We were impressed with the visit and felt that he would help with her pain issues. He said he would look at her MRI and contact our primary physician about possible pain meds that she could take. After one month, her primary physician tried to contact him several times and I also tried to contact him for information. They would never get back to me or the physician and have done nothing. I would expect a letter or something as to why he doesn't want to treat her!

Poorest quality treatment ever experienced (69 years of age) Dr must get paid on patient volume not quality of care. One cannot see the Dr sooner then every three months. Staff is definitly not at the national level of competency which is a significant concern. Even though I do not, nor have I ever used medical marajauna the Rocky Mountain Pain Clinic will dismiss patients for this even though it is legal in this state. It struck me as odd even though I would not choose this treatment= biased.

We were three minutes late for an appointment after driving 210 miles. We tried to explain we were required to have one of the tires on our car replaced due to running over debris. Most new cars don't have a spare tire,but have a can of tire repair solution. A service repairman was called from 25 miles away and replaced the tire, but over two hours had elapsed. The skinny, long haired blonde, receptionist told us our appointment was cancelled and to return the next day. Very Unprofessional.
