Consumer BEWARE!! Dr. Robert Bien and his wife Sheila Bien are frauds. The staff is incompetent and changes on a regular basis as well as having their dogs run around in their office is unprofessional and unbecoming. Wait time is 1.5 to 2 hours of your scheduled appointment. I witnessed a patient get turned away and the doctor wouldn't even see her in person and all she wanted was a referral to the implant he put in a few years back as it was malfunctioning.

We tried to pay a bill numerous times and had to leave several messages which were NEVER returned. We finally got a hold of somebody at the office, WILLIAM, and paid the bill by credit card with him. Several months later we were sent to collections because the bill was supposedly not paid. William and this office dropped the ball and didn't process the credit card payment. Instead of calling us back and solving the issue they sent us to collections over a very small amount due.

Dr. Bien is extremely experienced, patient, and professional. The office is extremely responsive and the nurses are fantastic. The clinic has greatly restored my ability to function like a normal human being. They have a flexible evidence-based approach that focuses on individual needs. The only possible drawback is finding an appointment slot.

I have been a patient since December of 2015. His staff are all nice and very professional. My waiting time has been right on time, no waiting 15 minutes or more before being called back. He adjusts the treatment as needed, so that as your pain decreases the medications are reduced and nerve medication increased proportionately. I definitely recommend Dr. Bien to anyone who wants to be treated professionally without being over medicated. My entire family are being treated by him.
