My husband sees Dr. Nocerini regularly for back pain. When we first went in, my husband could not sit still for any length of time. Now because of the treatment from Dr. Nocerini, my husband is nearly pain-free. The doctor is professional, knowledgeable, caring and friendly. I recommend Dr. Nocerine for pain relief.

Of the several doctors I've seen seeking pain relief from a knee surgery gone bad, Dr. Nocerini was the only one who helped. He tried 3 interventional procedures which were not successful but the 4th worked perfectly and I've been pain free for 11 months ! This doctor is pleasant to deal with, answers questions patiently and is tenacious in the goal of alleviating pain. Unlike earlier doctors who dismissed me saying there was nothing more they could do for me, Dr. Nocerini had several tools and was determined to bring me pain relief. I would recommend him to others.

Dr. Nocerini seemed to be a good doctor. He interned at UTSW which is the hospital where my daughter has been treated since she was 18. However, his office staff leaves a lot to be desired. He told us at the appointment, if she needed her medication reviewed or adjusted, to call him and he would change it as needed. Well, that would be great, if you could ever get someone to listen. We have call multiple times, and seldom get a live person. We have left numerous messages and rarely get a call back (hours later). The office staff says she has to come in each time, and will never ask the doctor what can be done. She cannot take off work once a week, and her pain is unbearable. The one call I have received back, was argumentative, condescending and overall talked over me and really didn't care what I had to say. For someone who deals with pain 24 hours a day, this is not the type of interaction that is needed from a doctor's office.

Dr. Nocerini is very professional and focuses in on cause of the pain and test for alternative procedures verses using pain meds. He makes sure that his patients are comfortable and not suffering.

Dr. Nocerini has been helping manage my pain, caused by a deformed spine, for several years. His treatments and recommendations have allowed me to walk and engage in activities at a level that I would never have been able to before his care. He has approached my multifaceted back problem on several different levels to determine the best treatment to reduce my pain. I am very thankful for all of his attention and care.

I have only had a great experience with Dr NOCERINI. He is very attentive and listens to my concerns and treats my pain in ways that other doctors have just brushed off what is really wrong. He and his staff are always so nice. I highly recommend him.

Don't Listen to Naysayers. Both Dr. Nocerini and Vattam great doctors with super people on their staff. Dr. never rushed thru my appt. and was always concerned with my condition. I'm 71 now, but was injured at 18 while serving in Vietnam. I've lived with pain my entire life. If someone was unhappy here I'll eager it's because of thing going on with them ... like not taking meds as prescribed or being manipulative. I'd recommend to friends and foes alike. I've gone to this clinic for years and couldn't be happier.

Dr. Nocerini listened to me and was so kind. I was in so much pain. He was concerned about my mental health, telling me that pain and depression are linked. I found a therapist & psychiatrist (APN) at his suggestion. I feel so much better! The pain is still there, but not near as bad. And I can handle it better. I would recommend Dr. Nocerini to anyone searching for a pain medicine specialist!!

DO NOT GO TO THIS OFFICE!!!!! This office is horrible and I wouldn't refer my worst enemy to them! The Dr acts like he has no power to correct the behavior of the people who work with him. They mistreated me and did not do what the insurance company needed for them to do to get my meds properly. They proved that they don't care about their patients. I have proof of every accusation. I'm in pain and they don't care. I wish I could do zero stars.

He was extremely rude and unprofessional. I was charged a ridiculous amount of money for literally having the doctor sit with me for 10 minutes and to tell me he could not help me. He ordered a bunch of unnecessary tests that have cost me over $300 out of pocket with him offering no solutions.

NONE. I would NEVER refer F/F to this terrible CYA doctor and clinic. I've made the mistake of going 2x in 2 years, and each time refused to treat b/c 1st) I refused UA and left. I've had 2 neck surgeries, tons hardware, chronic pain, ie legit issues. Tried again today, weed clean and ready for UA, 2d visit) 1 hr wait said wont treat b/c of prior walk-out..Then why make 2d appt?? He is unaware of med studies in JAMA, et al showing 33% drop in opiate ODs in states with med marij laws. What a joke
