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 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.
