My pain management Dr. Sood shouldn't be a pain management doctor. He knows nothing about my condition, pretending he does. He doesn't care if you are in pain if you have no xrays or anything like that. He told me I shouldn't be on pain meds when everyone who knows anything about fibromyalgia has told me that I should be. He needs to do his research and become a real, caring pain management doctor.

Dr Sood was given a full history and all of my medical records. Doctor reports, MRIs, IMEs, Pharmacy and Hospital reports. I saw him on a Monday, after my appointment, he told me that he would need 2 days to speak with my previous doctors. When 4 days later I had not been called back, I contacted his office, it was 2:30pm, He had already left for the day. I called the following Monday at 1:30pm, I was told that the Doctor would call me in 10 minutes as he was with a patient. I called back 2 hours later, I was told he would call me after 5 pm. It is over 3 weeks. I never received a call back. I am in a difficult, painful situation, and the Doctor never followed up. I asked the Doctor who recommended him to follow up. He never returned the Doctors call.

Dr. Sood saved me! I was referred to him for severe pain in my hip, after several doctors and physical therapists could not help me with my pain for over a year. Dr. Sood and his team diagnosed the problem that other professionals had not considered. They created a treatment plan for both short term pain as well as a permanent solution. Dr. Sood was incredibly understanding at all times and personally made sure that I understood the cause of the pain and the procedures by taking the time to patiently explain everything. He made sure I was okay with the treatment plan, every step of the way. The office is very clean and the staff is always very helpful. The scheduling process is always very smooth. Everything about the procedures was very, very impressive - the facilities are clean, the staff is very professional and courteous, and the doctors are incredibly talented, knowledgeable, efficient, and effective. I am so grateful to Dr. Sood and his team for helping me!

I broke my foot. I had sever pain. Dr Sood took a look at it and diagnosed me with ComplexRegional Pain Syndrom. The pain and swelling was horrible. The earlier diagnosed the better the outcome. He treated me with nerve blocks and physical therapy. He stayed with me the whole time encouraging me. Listening to me. Sometimes just letting me cry. It took 4 nerve blocks and then a trial on Lyrica as well as physical therapy. After 6 months I was back to normal. Never once taking a narcotic. He gave me the ability to walk again. I have complete faith in him. I can never thank him enough. This condition could have disabled me for life. It is nerve damage. The best way I can show thanks is to recommend him to others. I have not only a doctor, but a friend for life. I would never want to go to anyone else. Pain does not have take over your life. A condition does not necessarily be permanent. I am a believer. I believe in this doctor and his practice. Thank you Dr. Sood!

After suffering with sciatica, I will blessed to have found Dr. Sood. He was understanding, knowledgeable and compassionate and with weeks after going to him, he got to the root of the problem and thankfully I am back to having no hip pain. His procedures are done at his Pain Management Center in Clifton which is great. You are treated with great care and the staff is great. I would highly recommend Dr. Sood. Believe me, you will not find a better doctor than him.

I am extremely disappointed with Dr. Sood I went to him with severe pain in my back and in my groIn area. He gave me three shots in my back the first time I saw him and we scheduled for me to have an epidural. He read my MRI which was two years old I did not hear from him after that but was given an appointment to An epidural. Which I did not receive from him I am still in pain with my back and never spoke to him again after the procedure. I find his behavior very unprofessional. I would neve

Dr. Sood is very intelligent and asks all the right questions. I was having issues with neck and back pain from a Car Accident all the way back in 2015 and he was able to make the pain go away quickly after 2 injections done in a surgical center. A+

Went to see Dr. Sood and was in so much pain. Was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 6 months ago and never thought I would find a doctor who could help me. Dr. Sood was kind and caring and I felt like finally I found a doctor who knows about my condition. After the appointment and scheduling I will be back again. Nice and friendly office with no waiting. They took my insurance and referred me to another Primary Care Physician (PCP). Thank you Dr. Sood.

I was referred to MPC by my Chiropractor in Clifton after discovering that I had some pain radiating down my arms. Dr. Sood was very capable and had a very nice way about him. I went in for a same day procedure and instantly felt the relief. I'm glad that our paths crossed and I feel much better. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. - Steve
