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. He took the time to explain to me his thoughts on the issues & what procedure he would be doing to me to assist as well as the his future plans. Ive had other procedures with him now & fully trust him! Amazing knowledge, bedside & never rushed at your visit. His office/nurse staff are top notch as well! Thank You Ken VP

I would definitely recommend Dr. Gupta for pain management for any spinal issues such a stenosis, sciatica, I was in excruciating pain and following 2 separate injection orocedures, I can say today I am pain free. I know I can get flare ups but he has assured me we will confront that should it occur. I found him to be very kind and sympathetic and anxious to help me. Following the injections expect it to take up to 3 wks to work . Sometimes getting worse before it feels better. Thx Dr. Gupta.

I've been seeing Dr Gupta for 5 years now for my 2 bulging disks and low back pain and I can say he is one of the best doctors at helping with pain relief. I've been away at college for the past 4 years and have worked with two other doctors who have given me injections and never got any comparable relief as to when Dr. Gupta did my injections. Hes willing to even try conservative treatment of taking medication but is not opposed to either. Always friendly and really knows his clients.

He was VERY rude and arrogant. He treated me like I was lying about my severe pain. He was very cold and uncaring. He had NO compassion or kindness. I would NOT ever go back to him. His office staff was just as rude.
No patient-physician relationship was established at this visit. An Independent Medical Evaluation is an objective evaluation of the causality of the individuals symptoms and necessity for further treatment. As it is based on the physician's professional opinions, not all individuals will agree with the opinions or findings of the physician and may be unsatisfied with the outcome.
