What People Say About Dr. Nicholas Kondelis, MD

Dr. Kondelis goes that extra mile for his patients when their overall well being is concern. He helped petition BCBS by each of us submitting in writing reasons we for requesting additional migraine treatments outside the normal frequency of what is allowed due to my chronic situation. And much to my surprise the insurance company accepted our request. I can't thank him enough for supporting me in that endeavor as well as helping me to continue managing my back and spinal pain.

Out of 20 years seeing pain specialists, Dr.Kondelis last 5 years seem to give me my decision making back to a point. He gave his professional opinion,and what he thought he could and couldn't do in an honest, no punches pulled. But when I felt it wasn't working we both agreed no more and search elsewhere. Till the point that my condition and point of damage I know will not get any better,so he did the best to give me agreed quality of life to work with.Now its political.I recommend him 1000%

Dr Kondelis is by far the best doctor I have ever had. I was sick at age 16 and now I'm 47 so I have had my share of doctors. Doctor K is compassionate, smart, easy to talk to and so knowledgeable in what he does in medicine. I would 100% recommend this doctor to anyone who is in pain and needs an excellent doctor. I have been with his pain clinic for years and I would not trade my doctor for anyone else on earth. Thank you Doctor K for all you have done for me.

Horrible doctor his drug test showed things I've never taken in my life and he never checked to see if my 20 other meds being mixed could give false positives after other doctors vouched for me. Very cold towards me said to me in front of my child I have to be some type of speed freak from the results of my drug test and you can clearly tell I don't do drugs as such. Left me to go through withdrawals from a 100mg fentanyl patch and the 150 norco a month I'm on for my spinal stroke pain and other
