I work at a nursing home and years of pulling and pushing patients had hurt my back. Dr. Tulang has helped me with his treatments. He recommended medications, home exercise program and then offered to "burn" the nerves in my back if the tests worked. Nothing short of a miracle. 8 months and still going strong. I am a bit irritated that he does not want to do a similar treatment for my neck.

His staff is friendly and seem to really care. The Dr. is especially caring and really involves the patient. Showing what he is looking at on the computer. Does not mind the patient doing research to ask him about.

I have already recommended Dr. Telang to family and friends. I am still in the process of getting better. I appreciate his professionalism in explaining what is going to take place in words I can understand. The office staff Is informed and very knowledgeable of their position in maintaining the flow necessary for a pleasant office visit as well as returning your phone messages. Thank you all.

This Dr. has no clue that a pain Dr. should help patients in pain instead of referring to them as being "loopy". As my husband got upset with his poor judgement, due to the uncalled for name calling and the Dr. stating he would ONLY do injections on someone who has had4 back/neck surgeries and unable to walk due to the car accident. My opinion FIND YOU A DR!
We are an Interventional pain Practise and not a pill clinic. Understandably, certain patients get upset. We hope that you have had a chance to reflect on treatment options that we have offered and get the appropriate help that you need, wherever that may be.

I have had this annoying pain for 5 years after a car accident. I was initially referred to physical therapy which did not help. He then did some tests and ablation of the nerves which helped a lot. Have been pain free for over 6 months now. Thank you Dr. Telang. Also has very helpful staff.

Helped my 72 year oldmother who had spinal stenosis. We have seen a remarkable improvement in her over the past year.
Muscle Shoals, AL |
Absolutely a joke. This so called pain dr wouldn't even see me at all after reviewing my medical files from a referring doctor. I have severe spinal issues and a back fusion. This quack wouldn't even attempt to help me. Guess his so called methods he advertises are a scam if he knows there useless... Thanks doc for all your help.
We are an Interventional Pain Practise, not a pill clinic. We review each referral carefully and select patients whom we can help. In our experience, patients who are on high dose narcotics often have other issues that we do not have any training or expertise to deal with. Understandably, this can upset some patients. We hope you are able to find a practice that best suits your needs.

Very patient oriented and his professional skill's have no equal. I would recommend him to anymore Who has spinal or pain issue's.

Was referred to Dr. Telang by my family doctor, about two years ago. Have found him to be courteous, professional, interested in helping me, and personable. I continue to see him every few months. Have experienced a tremendous relief from pain through injections and medications.
in Tuscumbia, AL |

Used medications, injections and physical therapy to significantly lower my neck pain.
