San Juan Capistrano, CA |
I saw Paciuis for neck pain and knee pain After receiving a steroid injection in my knee with no results I tried to speak with the doctor about what the next step would be I made three phone calls almost two weeks apart and no phone call from Dr Paciuis only calls from his assistant who did not have a clue what was happening . Apparently Dr Pacicius is too busy to return calls This is not an MD I want to have treatment from

There is no finer Pain Management specialist in OC. I have been his patient since 2011. I live a normal life, even after 5 spinal reconstructions. Although I occasionally over work my back and cause myself pain, Dr Paicious is always graciously there to lend a hand getting me back to a tolerable level. I wouldn't trade my relationship with Doctor or his office for anything! I'm so grateful to their tender care and expertise in dealing with patients like me.

Dr. Pacius has treated me for pain for 10+ years. He listens, believes what you say and offers options for treatment. His outpatient surgery center is sterile like a hospital an all medical precautions are taken..I once had an injection in my spine with no anesthetic and I would not wish that on anyone. I have also seen a doctor who had the patient get on the table with all his clothes on in a non sterile room. Dr. Pacius takes your pain seriously and is a doctor you can trust.
