    Granger, IN |
    First I all I referred myself to see Dr. Smucker by researching doctors who specialize in pain management. I'm suffering from possible CRPS / RSD and wanted another opinion. Made the spot with his office. Day before my appointment his office calls and basically accuses me of just wanting prescription drugs letting me emphatically know he doesn't hand out pain killers. WHAT? I just want a second opinion about my chronic pain and my appointment was cancelled because the Dr couldn't help me.

    Dr.Smucker did a great job procedure wise. However the shots which were injected into my spinal area on 2 different visits did not help my back pain. If you have severe herniated discs if feel this was a waste of my hard earned money.
