I've visited here to consult my neck/shoulder pains, which led to frequent headache. As a new patient, I had a positive first visit. Front staff were friendly and helpful. As soon as I was done with the check-in, doctor was available right away. He took time to review my symptoms carefully, and walked me through the treatment plans. Looking forward to next visit!

I've been through so many Pain Management doctors these office is by far the best one I have ever been to, and I have ever worked with. They absolutely care and are willing to listen, they don't rush you out to see the next patient they actually are very caring and devoted to your need and best medical plan. Doctor Justiz is the best.

Dr. Justiz is amazing!! Most clinics/hospitals will just treat you as a patient and move on to the next one, but not Dr. Justiz, he takes the time to listen to you and see what is going on. So I'm glad I found this clinic to help manage my pain!!
