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!

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.

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.

My mother saw Dr Telang for treatment of spinal stenosis. She was too old for surgery. He started her on neurontin and did 2 injections. She is a lot better. Highly recommend.
