I was very impressed with Dr. Menard. His personal interface was EXCELLENT and his explanation was honest and straight forward. He said that he doubted his treatment for my problem(sacroiliac) would probably not help me as the nerves on the front of the bone could not be reached by the ablation process. A DR who was NOT out for enriching himself with an unecessary procedure. Five STAR all the way!

Dr Menard was very very thorough and professional. It’s pleasant to deal with a doctor whom understands my issues. Additionally his nurse Theresa and other staff were easy to talk to and seemed genuinely geared to helping me improve my back problems.

My husband has been going to him for over a year for severe back pain. He has done NOTHING to help his pain level. His only answer is epidural in spine...three times in a year and a half with no help whatsoever. In 2018, my husband went to Dr. Menard for severe pain and he gave him NO remedy...no over the counter regimen, no prescription regimen, no TENS unit recommendation, no physical therapy recommendation. When he called about level 8 pain, Dr. M never called back.

Referred to Dr Menard last summer. He ordered MRI. After reviewing he said I'd have to have spinal surgery. I suggested steroid epidural and he said it wouldn't work I insisted to try and he shook his head and said ok. He did procedure and it worked for 6 weeks :( anyhow went back today and after he reviewed MRI again I'm being sent to surgery to a doctor we both agree on. Thank you Menard for your listening, patience, care and advice. I'm listening more this time

This man is not only a joke of a doctor but even more of a joke of a human being. The first thing he said to my mother in law was that she was fat. She is there to see him because she is in a lot of pain from Shingles and that is the first thing he says??? Makes me sick to my stomach. After reading his reviews from multiple sites I guess that’s just him. A mean mean person. I hope when he needs a doctor he gets one just like him! I will be telling EVERYONE how bad he is and to stay away!

Dr. Menard all but harassed my poor elderly father, immediately accusing him of wanting pain medications, which my father kept trying to tell him he did not want. He clearly assumes all patients come in for the same reason. In front of both my mother and father he repeatedly stated; "If you even live that long." We were there to inquire about spinal stimulation that was recommended by his surgeon. He did not even give us the chance. They were charged $175 and left discouraged and humiliated
