I have seen Dr B for 3 years and he is great. He has had a few staff changovers and broke from the PHX based pain center. He has multiple northern AZ offices, so very busy. His current Flagstaff staff is by far the best he has hired on. Very friendly, warm, professional and helpful. They call a couple days ahead to remind me of appointments or procedures. He, and staff, take appropriate time to patiently listen. Most importantly, he happily includes me as a key member of my treatment team.

To be fair- This review is not about Dr B directly and for Pres. But he should know how chaotic, un-compassionate and incompetent his staff is. I was transferred to this practice when my pain dr of 13 years left town. My appt was made in Aug. When I arrived today I was told my appt was yesterday (a lie) and they could not see me for a month!! No “I’m sorry”. I spoke with the office mgr who handed me a list of other pain drs in town and said see my PCP or go to ER for my needed pain Rx’s. AVOID

I called the office because I was running 5 minutes late. The receptionist said the doctor was running late anyway and that 5 minutes later was no problem. I ran into road construction and was an additional 2 minutes late. I was informed the doctor could not see me and I could have an appt in another month. When I said I would be out of pain medication I wad told to get it from the ER or from my primary; due to AZ law neither are viable options. The staff were cold and lacked concern.

I've been seeing Dr Brownsberger for years and he is wonderful. His staff is well informed and when you are seeking a pain management physician, you want premium service. They are like family.

too bad this is the only game in town.and they know it.good luck with getting your refills without being labeled a drug seeker.yes they make you feel like you are doing something wrong.this place has really gone downhill since the arrival of Nancy Sunshine.she is always wanting to change up your treatment plan meaning always threatening to cut down your meds.ongoing every visit.they push for implants and epidurals.,thats the end game.gone are the great days when Linda was around.
