Dr. Justiz was able to quickly diagnose the source of my intense lower back and left hip pain and follow up the diagnosis with a program that quickly relieved my pain for an extended period.

Dr. Justiz and his staff were very caring and professional. I have had chronic pain for over 2 years, I have taken so many pain medications that they no longer work. Recently I was referred to them for pain management. The process was relatively easily once approved by the state. So far, it has been helpful in allowing me to do somethings with more ease.

Dr. Justiz saved me from knee surgery after a slip and fall. I felt that my only hope for a potentially crippling injury would be a surgery and he eased me back to functionality. Thanks Dr!!!

I had a discogram done at the surgery center. This was the first time going to this office. Everyone in the office was very sweet and professional. Dr Justiz was amazing. He explained the procedure and was very caring. He has a great bedside manner and the staff took great care of me. I would def recommend this dr and the nurses.

Went to several pain doctors and I could say Dr Justiz it’s one of the best, if not the best. Nice clinic, they gave me a good service.
