Front office Staff is the most unprofessional I have ever dealt with. Never answer the phone, do not return calls. My husband and I are are in an URGENT need to continue our treatments. Our Dr from CA can not even get a response.

Doctor Severson is just great. He took the time to really try to evaluate where pain was being generated and to work on a solution. I had a very difficult situation to resolve and he was determined to do all possible to help reduce pain. Great doctor and a very caring, nice man. Highly recommend.

Extremely close minded to alternatives to heroin alternatives prescribed to me like Norco. Do not see this arrogant doc getting you hooked on opiates. Find relief with mild homeopathic meds
in Eagle, ID |
It took a bit to get an appointment with the Dr initially. But, once a patient, response and follow up on calls is exceptional. The doctor went out of his way to work me in for an injection I needed badly. Office staff is thorough, respectful and kind. Dr is willing to listen and respond according to what you want to accomplish. Not a pill pusher, a problem solver. Highly recommend.

not a doctor! all he can do is push pills, leaves the impression that he is able to provide other treatments but is only licensed to preform one procedure in Idaho related to the spine. in looking at his abilities as a doctor it appears as he has 43 other fields he is trained in????? but i believe those are only related to pain medications. i was led to believe that he was licensed for much more then pushing pills.
