Very simple months of waiting just to get shots. Lied about having to take a drug test then came down and was told I had to take one despite the whole covid thing. Drs office NOT taking precautions with the covid. Not helping me with anything no MRI's Xrays and you get told shots are months out. Then they cancel those shots and tell you to wait three more months yet they want to cut your medication. Dr tells you one thing then two months says another thing. Dr is out of the scope of his medical practice he is not a surgeon yet every appointment he tells you if you will need surgery despite other doctors saying I need three different surgeries. Dr lies and the staff are very rude not taking other peoples disabilities into consideration. I was told not to come back all because I told them ill have to find a new Dr if the dr is going to lie. The nurse practitioner stuck me in the wrong part of the knee anything else?

Karen Levey, Patient – Nov 06, 2019
Dr dahlgren is my new pain doc in northern Nevada. He is amazing. I had no pain relief with pain pills. We tried a stimulation system and an implanted dosing device. I did best with the stimulation system trial ... so I choose to have that permanently implanted. I am finally 80% pain FREE! Thank You Carson Tahoe for brining Dr Dahlgren here!
