It is difficult to find a pain care facility that listens to the patient and works with them to find the best level of care, you will find this at spine and pain specialists!

I have been going to this practice for several years, and have been very pleased with the care they have given me. I have had a few times trouble with getting meds after a surgery, but they have corrected that issue and my last surgery went great. I have had injections in both my back and neck and they helped at first then stopped working and so the doctor went over all my other options which I was glad they didn't just pursue other injections that they knew wouldn't help.

Very arrogant and rude to patients. He stated that he would “protect the practice at all costs” with no care for actual true medical care or advice. Asked about willingness to undergo back injections without any review of medical history or previous interventions that were tried. Did not review medical chart, have any knowledge of medications that were tried or current. Horrible bedside manner and actually laughed when a legitimate concern was brought up.

This doctor acts as though he’s better than anyone else. He acts like a know it all is loud obnoxious & uses profanities not at all how I think a professional should act. The office is way too b for staff that work there. Why have three windows when they don’t all get used? The line to check in goes out the door it’s not fun standing when ur in extreme pain, ridiculous!

Poor bedside manner and what appears to be a lack empathy for pain patients. Does not listen to patients. Office staff is a nightmare.

Just left his office and was really unsure how it would go after reading reading mixed reviews but he was awesome. Really took his time to explain my injury and options. Way more so than any other dr in the 3 years dealing with this. Great staff as well.

Very knowledgeable Doctor, patient for 9 years, major problems with appointments, average wait time has always been about 40-45 minutes, imagine if as patients we were consistently late that same amount of time! Also the manner in which he speaks is very condescending, comes off as talking down to people as if he were better than everyone else. Also having to deal with his profanity when he is having a bad day doesn't help when you are already in pain looking for relief.

I have adhesive arachnoiditis a rare and painful disease. I am on pain medication but continue to work a 40 hour week and maintain some what of a life. He basically told me I was over-medicated and the only thing he could do for me was steroid injections which are useless for my condition plus the FDA has shown they actually cause arachnoiditis. Then states he cannot cure me because he is not God and won't write pain meds prescriptions because he doesn't want to be on the FDAs list. Unreal.

I have been seeing Dr. Boolbol and his staff members since 2003. When I first came to him I was being prescribed an unheard of amount of pain pills. He explained to me the severe damage I was doing to my liver. Dr. Boolbol performed an epidural for my sciatic pain and within a day all pain was gone. Just recently, I was put on a new non-narcotic medication for the other pain in my back. I am happy to say I am off all pain medication. I cannot thank Dr. Boolbol and his team enough!!

He is awesome! I saw 5-7 doctors (neurologists, orthopedic suregons, and PCP) including physical therapist and chiropractor and he was the ONLY one that was able to stop all of my body from hurting (neck injury/disc) with the Block therapy. Definitely worth the visits.

I don't know what his other patients are talking about..I have great respect for Dr. Boolbol, he does listen to his patients...I have been seeing him for several years and he does listen to me. And I get injections on my back and they help. I will be recommending to my friends and family. He does have empathy with his patients and he has a good sense of humor.

Dr. Boolbol is an arrogant jerk and refuses to discuss anything. He has refused to help me despite severe pain from surgical complications. Not only that, but he treats people with little respect and understanding for their pain. For a pain management doctor he doesn't seem to care about people's pain.
