Dr. Rahul is pretty straight forward and is very well informed and versed in pain management and procedures. He was able to help me get off the nasty oral pills that I was on and helped me with a simple procedure which has me feeling much better after only a week. A+ Top Level Doctor

Dr. Sood might be the worst doctor, I have ever encountered. He has terrible bedside manner, and comes off rude. The issue I have is that when I see a doctor, I expect a certain amount of empathy, but I felt none with Dr. Sood. I have since found another Pain doctor, who is million times better....more

Dr. Sood is a caring physician who spends time with me whenever I see him for concerns about my treatment regimen or doses. He always has a smile on his face and has a good joke for me to try and cheer me up after a hard day.
