Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was a patient with severe RSD of both legs for over 25yrs. Dr Michael Stanton Hicks was that vital link guiding me through the torturous courses of treatment. For many years, I had 3 IPG's running at the same time for pain control. Dr Hicks was involved in over 35 of the install as well as changing out units. He listened to my concerns as I worked hard to get my life back. He often commented that it was my positive attitude and hard work that marked my progress. I gave thanks for him and the international work that he did in researching RSD. I no longer see him nor visit Cleveland Clinic but am doing amazing. No pain medications and can again play Pickleball in a competitive manner. The RSD has more recently taken out neuro function to the bladder and lower colon but local physicians are treating this. I would highly recommend the Cleaveland Clinic Pain Management and Dr Michael Stanton Hicks
