I saw this pain doctor in 2012....he is horrible! Do NOT trust this physician! Especially when it comes to your neck! He inserted a needle and injected cortisone into my spinal cord! I've had pain and nerve issues ever since! He tried to pawn it off that it wasn't his fault when it actually was....

Colorado Springs – Dec 08, 2017
Dr. Ronald Laub is a poor excuse for a doctor. I was already established at the practice with Dr. Christopher Malinky; how I got transferred Dr "Lost Cause" I don't know. After being allergic to many oral pain meds, I sought to have an intrathecal pain pump put in for two reasons (1)meds were coming up missing and (2)I truly felt I needed constant management of my pain. Dr. Laub said before I could have the intrathecal pain pump put in, I had to taper down on my Dilaudid and quit smoking. After

Simla, CO – May 21, 2017
This doctor is terrible. During an injection he pierced through my dura and injected into my csf. I now suffer from a condition known as adhesive arachnoiditis, or severe nerve root clumping. Severe intractable pain that progressively gets worse. If you visit this doctor, I wish you the best of luck.

Adhesive Arachnoiditis in Colorado Springs, CO – Dec 31, 2016
I wouldn't hold much water in all the 5 star reviews. On my first visit, he asked that I go online and rate him positively because his rating on these websites was poor. I agreed because he seemed friendly and knowledgeable. I no longer feel this way. After 4 visits I will never see him again and mind you it isn't because I went to see him for pain medication. He is uncouth, presumptuous and moody. The worst doctor I have ever had.

Chris in Pueblo, CO – Jun 12, 2016
I am new to the area and have had two back fusions and have been dealing with back pain since 1996. My very first appointment, I knew I had found the right pain dr. for me. He listens very well and goes above and beyond what you receive from a majority of doctors out there. He takes his time to address all of your concerns. The whole office atmosphere is very friendly. I actually didn't feel like I was being cycled through in anonymity. Very refreshing!

Nancy P. in Colorado Springs, CO – Jun 10, 2016
I have been to a lot of doctors over the years for pain management. At first most tried different things to manage my pain but eventually settled into medications to get me some relief and its been that way for 5 or 6 years until a health insurance change forced me to find a new dr. and I am glad I found Dr. Laub. I've only been going for a few months but he listens very well to my issues and has been trying to find me a more long term plan for me.

Tim S in Monument, CO – Jun 03, 2016
Dr. Laub filled in for my other dr on my most recent visit, and even though I had an understanding with the other physicians, Laub contradicted our entire treatment plan. Laub is rude, condescending, cocky, insensitive, and frankly the worst doctor I've ever seen. He ignored my treatment history and argued against every step we had planned with my main doctors. He treated me like a druggy and had no plan for my pain or treatment beyond insisting I no longer take pain medication. He is horrible

Angry Patient in Colorado Springs, CO – May 08, 2016
I would recommend Dr. Laub for consultation and treatment of your pain. I am a returning patient after 4 years of absence because my primary care doctor had been managing the follow up from my earlier plan with Dr Laub, and needed to review this lifelong management of chronic GI pain that is very complicated and the exception to most rules. Dr. Laub was very respectful and listened to my situation, rather than having preconceived ideas for treatment. I was very pleased with outcome!

Debra in Monument, CO – May 06, 2016
I met him today in lieu of my Dr not being available. He was so helpful, he offered me better ways to manage my pain instead of pushing narcotics. He listened to what was going on with my pain he didn't throw the prescription pad at it. Bravo! More doctors should take the time Dr. Laub did with me. I actually look forward to using the techniques he showed me to help with my pain. I have had great experiences with everyone at Interventional Pain Management.

I have had good success with getting shots from Dr. Laub for sciatic pain. I have found him to be professional, and his pain management treatment has been very effective. It has been two years between injections, so the treatment has been long-lasting. The most recent injection I got has been exceptionally good - the pain that I was having has completely gone away. I found Dr. Laub and his office staff to be friendly at all times

Dr. Laub AND staff at Intervention Pain Management are very uplifting and at the same time very careful to make sure that you know EVERYTHING CORRECTLY about your options.He does not just say:Oh well, we can try this.He checks every detail on X-Rays, Dr.s' notes, MRIs etc and makes sure YOU KNOW exactly what is happening & the risks and benefits so you can make a decision on your care.I have 7 fused vertebrae & cartilage issues in my knee.I went in w/ crutches & walked out smiling.AMAZING DOC.

Dr. Laub has been treating me for over 18 months and he has done everything in his power to manage my pain to a level I can once again function day to day. This has included numerous nerve blocks to varying degrees, drugs, non-traditional medicine, sending me to specialists throughout the state numerous times, and even bringing medical articles to my appointments that he has been researching to help me cure/manage pain.
