I’m in need of a new pain medication dr. From what I’ve read so far this doctor seems great. Does he write scripts for pain medicine?

My husband has gone to Dr. Kinyungu for about two years for severe pain due to 8 collapsed vertebrae caused by cancer. Dr. Kinyungu has always been attentive, flexible, and knowledgeable about new treatments and has greatly helped my husband manage his pain throughout his chronic condition. I would highly recommend Dr. Kinyungu to anyone.

Dr. Kinyungu is the most caring Dr. I’ve ever seen. He really takes the time to discuss your health issues and discuss options. The only problem is his front desk lady that claims to be a nurse. Danielle, seems to be high on something and smell of cigarettes. I suspected she was not a nurse and looked her up on the NYS nursing registries (all 3) the RN registry, LPN registry and when she wasn’t on either of those I checked the Nurse Aide registry. She is not listed Anywhere!

Dr. Kinyungu is compassionate, caring and very knowledgeable. I am 80% free of pain due to the use of medical marijuana. With his help I can function and be more productive. I highly recommend him. His office staff is always friendly and very helpful.
