I had a horrible experience of over prescribed painkillers and misdiagnosis by this doctor. No one should trust this person.

Santa Barbara office, I highly recommend Dr. Scheinberg. I had an stem cell injection at his out paitent sugery center, it went wonderful and after nine yrs of suffering, not walking, standing I am walking! and Standing!! Please consider having stem cell injection with Dr. Scheinburg he knows what he is doing and how-to use your Owen stem cells to heal you. I went from doing nothing to doing everything. Thank God I had Dr. Scheinberg.
