I went to pain Dr Bolash as my primary doctor ordered an injection in both hips WITH contrast in an attempt to move after that to relieve back pain. Dr. Bolash agreed in Feb. 2019 to do so. On or about May 27th 2019 Dr. Bolash, did without contrast, let a resident mark with blue ink an X on both hips. Then on to next room. I was in this room two minutes. A resident then came from both my right and left side and with force injected both hips. The resident at left hip used so much force he hit the femur. I felt extreme pain right away. Moved to next room and released. Because of extreme pain in left leg since then, every day and night, I knew the main damage was to a nerve as it radiates from my hip to my toes. My doctor ordered an MRI which shows ligament damage to both hips. I am writing this so no one Ever has to suffer like I have for the past 11 months. It is extreme pain to sit or drive. Get a doctor who will follow your doctors order. DO NOT USE DR BOLASH EVER.

Terrible, felt like I was being dehumanized. I am a recovering addict with a year of sobriety and he treated me like I was subhuman. Very patronizing. I broke my neck years ago and it's doctors like this that push people to do street drugs to self medicate since the doctors don't seem to care. $600 dollars wasted. If you have any negatives in your past look for someone else. I'd give zero stars if it was possible. To anyone out there who is in my situation keep your head up. Things will get better and you are in my prayers.

I felt like my pain wasn’t taken seriously, minimized the impact it has on my daily life. Prescribed a medication I had previously been on, told me try again. Took over 8 business days to respond to a question and only responded because I reached back out to him. Ordered tests then took over a week to release the results without any information about what the results meant. Only described procedure after I asked him about what it entails.
