I recently saw Dr. Deters for some lower back pain. I felt he was the first doctor that really listened to me and came up with a plan that would address my concerns and work with my lifestyle. Already his plan seems to be working. would highly recommend.

I'm surprised at a couple of comments as I found exactly the opposite. The doctor entered the room introduced himself and shook my hand . He ask for my condition and a description of my symptoms. Referred for am MRI to return and we will my course of treatment. Found him very kind and caring.

For starters He never introduced himself he never shook my hand and he barely looked at me. He questioned why i was there when my primary care doctors the one who set up the appointment. He didnt want to help me at all he was rude and kept saying i dont understand why your here there's nothing i can do for you. He grabbed my wrist and used his body to block my way so i couldnt leave the room because i asked him where he got his license from.

When I called for the appointment I specifically informed them that I needed a pain specialist to manage my medications. I first noticed that there were dead bugs all in the lights in the ceiling and the walls were filthy. The doctor came in and stated that he was sorry I wasted my time coming in because he could not do a thing for me. He stated he was affiliated with the spine institute and that he was not set up for lab work. I called the spine institute and they never heard of him.
