Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gupta "Our Care Philosophy is driven by Evidence Based Medical Practice. We provide "boutique care" for the select few rather than generic volume based care. We do not do "series of three" injections, or monthly urine drug testing, or prescribe compounded creams and braces since these lack good medical evidence for efficacy. All spine procedures are done with X-Ray guidance, and IV sedation for precision, patient safety and comfort, in  a Surgery center with State of the art equipment and excellent support staff. All care is rendered by Dr. Gupta himself. Pain Medications are prescribed judiciously, and monitored as per Standards established by National Societies."

Not a good pain doctor. Bad bedside manner. Do yourself a favor and go to RA pain or Relievus. At least those doctors care about you and try to get you better.

Dr. Gupta is a life saver for me, I spent many years battling my many back issues that many doctors wrote off. I was hospitalized & he was brought in as a consult for my issues.
