Outstanding pain physician. I’ve recently switched PM doctors and the difference is, frankly, several orders of magnitude in the positive. My first encounter was >40 minutes with a very thorough history and exam. Follow ups have been fantastic with tweaks and changes to my meds and finally addressed my neuropathy successfully. Dr. Valentine has a unique and refreshing attitude overall and listens to everything you say. He’s extremely informative and fosters an environment of involving the patient in decisions which is exactly how it should be done. In the past, I’ve always felt like issues that came up were addressed with an almost adversarial or alternatively a dismissive attitude. Office staff couldn’t be nicer which is a change I used to dread calling my previous doctors office with an issue. There are only a few choices in the area for PM but I encourage anyone needing this specialty to visit Dr. Valentine, you won’t be disappointed. Can’t say enough good things. Highly recommend.

Dr Valentine has a great sense of humor! Seemed genuinely interested in my issues. Have high hopes he'll help me get my pain under control. Would highly recommend Dr Valentine. The only detractor would be the front office staff. They did not acknowledge me when I walked up to the sign in sheet, they were more interested in talking about their dating life. And the young lady tht checked me out was kind of rude and maybe said three words to me during the check out process. Very unprofessional.

Impeccable bedside manner which made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Had to have steroid injections in my neck and it was virtually painless. He spent a lot of time reviewing my condition, and concerns, and explained treatment options in great detail. One of the kindest, and most caring, physicians I’ve ever had treat me!

Just left my new patient appointment with Dr Valentine. The front end staff was very pleasant and Dr. Valentine was very thorough. The visit was a little long but the doctor made sure we covered everything and all my questions were answered. He has a great sense of humor and is very easy to talk to.
