What People Say About Dr. Paul Sutera, MD

Horrible , Horrible Run from this office if there is anyway you can possibly do it ! They LIE about the amount of medication they can prescribe by law NO MATTER what you condition may be. Do NOT believe a word they say as it is not the LAW nor fact. I feel bad for the patient(s) that are stuck in this town and have to deal with incompetent doctors / PAs Etc. You wait hours after your scheduled appointment to be seen then deal with their stupidity. I was a patient there for years and unfortunately this office is about the only pain management in this area. I have moved to a different area of Arizona and have a wonderful caring pain doctor along with a pharmacy that goes above and beyond. Treats you with nothing but respect. The office staff at this facility is just as bad. I do not believe they have a 3rd grade education at best. Doctors that work or live in this area are here because they cannot make it in a normal city with educated people. This posting is 100% accurate

After several visits, I'm just done. The office's notes are shoddy, they don't have in their records when adjustments were made to my intrathecal pump. I've arrived on time with my appointment card to be told that I'm not on the schedule. And as an existing patient with new insurance (that day) that doesn't require referrals, I was told they won't take my insurance without a referral. My appointment right before Sutera's office went online to confirm the needed information. Since I drive 39 miles to get to them, I asked for a physical therapy referral in my town. I even gave them a name and number. But three times they sent a referral to a clinic in Bullhead City. Over and over again it's been an issue. Now that my pump is being removed, I'm moving on.

I just saw dr. Sutera and I got nothing but nice people and very helpful for my need for help on my back. Yes I was told that they can't give me anything because I'm new and I have to do a bunch of test and I understand that very much. But I wasn't there for the meds. I was there to get help with my back and legs. Yes the meds help but I want to get help with the pain not the drugs. So I have nothing bad to say about them.

I left my pain management in mojave. Found Suteras office to be bizzy but what Doctors isn't. That's the insurance companies making impossible for most doctors to practice the way they wanIt, the days of family practice from birthing to appendix and other things doctors used to do are gone. Anyway with that in mind I found more one on one time then what I was getting. I believe sometimes they are testing people for pill seeking by using the two week fill. So I recommend them.

I like Dr Sutera. He is a very nice and understanding Dr. His office staff are the rudest people I have dealt with in a professional capacity. When I asked for my discharge letter, they made me look like they were discharging me. They called me non-compliant, rude at all of my appts, etc. They were consistently late when it came to prior authorizations, and sometimes I had to wait 2 hours past my appt time before I was called to the back. They sucked!!!!

This office is lying to patients now about a new Arizona Opioid Law saying they can only write for 2 weeks at a time. Spoke to several other pharmacies and pain clinics and this is not a true fact in any form. One of the patients had a cell phone recording being told this and was advised to send it to the medical board as this type of conduct from a professional office can lead to discipline. Some have been told pharmacies don't want to fill more than 2 weeks, another lie as well.

Patient of Dr. Sutera for over 6 yrs. But for some reason he has stopped doing follow up's for his pain pump patients, as well as no longer even filling patients pumps. I missed my surgery date due to my mother having an accident and he now REFUSES to do the medically needed surgery....!! I now HAVE to see his NP who is rude & unprofessional. I live 70 miles away & can"t always be on time due to weather, road const. or accidents. For which I am made to wait up to 4 hrs. in punishment...!!

The woman dr in his practice was the rudest most unprofessional dr I've ever met. I had a referral from both a spine specialist for my back injuries and from an orpedist for my knees which are bone on bone. She refused to see info regarding my knees and would only discuss my pack. Im in major pain 24/7 and was on dilaudid and she prescribed the least powerful pain reliever, tramadol which does not even touch my pain. I'm hoping to see Dr Sutera next time and will be able to go e a better review

Worst experience I have ever had at a medical facility. The Staff and the PA should be out of work for how they treat ailing patients. They keep you from ever even seeing the doctor, so I have no idea if he has a clue what is going on in that office.

Dr. Paul Sutera refused to request a Sign Language Interpreter for me. I gave the secretary the Deaf Brochure explaining how doctors are obligated to provide an interpreter under ADA Law. The secretary spoke to Dr. Sutera and he said he was not going to be able to provide an interpreter at the time. He said I should go see another provider. My insurance only covered Dr. Sutera. The secretary then contacted Dr. Nayer to change me to another doctor. I felt like I was being discriminated bc I'mDeaf
