What People Say About Dr. Paul Harkins, MD

Dr. Harkins did injections into my back, but did them in the wrong area. He said he based it on an xray and his examination. After 6 injections that did not help, I had an MRI done which showed the correct area of damage. Then he wanted to start the injection process again, all the time I've been in severe pain for 8 months dealing with this doctor. Why not do the MRI first and then place the injections in the correct area where they would have helped ? I chose to cut my losses, take my MRI results to another doctor and hopefully get some help. I wish I could give zero stars....do yourself a favor and keep looking elsewhere.

If you want to sit for 2 months waiting to be seen then to be told we don’t accept your type of insurance. The referring doctor that sent me here sent over all my paperwork including insurance. They have no respect for the patient or their time. Their first excuse was we didn’t receive your insurance information. Then after confirmation that it was sent in mid June they confessed they did receive it and said they should have called. Very unprofessional and incompetent!!!!

I would strongly recommend Dr. Harkins for pain management. I have arthritis in my lower back so bad at times I cannot straighten up. He found that my arthritis is in my facet joints. I am getting ready to have my fourth radiofrequency nerve ablation this Friday. I now have a quality of life without being prescribed narcotic pain medicine on a regular basis. He and his staff are very caring and I would highly recommend him.

Dr Harkins and Staff have been instrumental in taking a bad back condition (4 herniated discs) and through epidurals, making my quality of life much much better. Always friendly and professional, I would highly recommend Dr. Harkins to anyone in need of this type of procedure. Jeff Porter

He promised the world during my consultation, then fell very short. 25 epidurals a day out of his office? Wow. I've seen many back doctors over the year and he is, in my opinion, the slimiest one of them all. Absolutely no compassion. Beware
