I have had the wonderful experience of seeing Dr. Linehan and his team for my back problems. In Having several injections in 3 areas of my back, he has that Golden Touch, he hits the spot , injects with very little pain and always in a professional ,gentle manner. His team are the kindest, but professional. he office is the cleanest and most comfortable, wait times are quick and scheduling the next appointment is a breeze. Brandy , the receptionist and all the wonderful ladies are fantastic. Because of them I am able to walk, move and enjoy life. The are the best.

Had a compression fracture of a lumbar vertebra. I hobbled into his office & after the treatment procedure, I walked out of this office. The level of back pain was considerably diminished. The residual pain was due to irritated nerves which he treated later. Jim in Lancaster,Aug., 2020

After suffering back pain for about 2 years and trying another facility, Dr. and procedure and some physical therapy - I got no relief from the terrible pain. I could not walk for any distance and was unable to even ride in the car for any distance. There were days that I could do very little physically. I made an appointment with Dr. Linehan and after he talked to my wife and I and went over my history and examined me, he talked to quite an extent about his thoughts and opinions on what he could do to help me. And he LISTENED to me. After a lengthy discussion we decided on what procedures he would do and I am now almost pain free and am able get back to the activities I enjoyed before. I garden, mow yard, can take drives in the car. Not only is my physical health much improved, emotionally I am much better. My wife (who is a retired RN) and I were so comfortable and confident with Dr. Linehan and I continue under his care as he monitors my progress.

Went through 2 rounds of painful epidual steroids with Dr. Linehan. Actually told me I needed to "try keep the noise down" during the last procedure in excruciating pain. After it only flared my MS symptoms he referred me back to my neurologist. Anything but helpful. A waste of time and money.

i injured my back to the point of being unable to function. I was recommended to Dr Linehan by a nurse friend. I called his office, explained my situation and was seen the next day. He talked with me, evaluated my situation, made recommendations, performed one procedure and I left the office able to stand straight and with an immediate decrease in pain. I am back to work and able to function normal. I am completely satisfied with the care and kindness of Dr Linehan and his staff.

Dr. Linehan is a very caring and excellent physician. He listens to his patients and recommends appropriate treatment for the ailment. He has treated my back pain for several years and recently performed the second facet joint nerve ablation. It is a great relief to no longer experience the excruciating pain which I had been having for several months.

Dr.Ron is the best. Don't go anywhere else. He's convenient, kind, truly concerned regarding your pain or other issues and works very hard at getting the problem identified and corrected. Very kind Doc. and a Happy staff that show a lot of compassion like the Doc. does for every patient. I have referred several friends to Doc. I have that much confidence in him. I wish I had gone to him first and not spent my time in pain waiting on specialists in Cincinnati that did nothing for me.

I have had 4 visits with Dr Linehan, 3 for SI joint injections. I have gone from chronic pain 24/7, to close to 50% less pain since August. I'm 72 years old so not trying to run a marathon, just feel like a functional human being. He has been able to help me reach that level. A lovely extra is that he is a doctor who genuinely cares about his patients and improving their lives. Much gratitude Dr. Linehan!

I was greeted with a smile, taken to an exam room within 15 minutes of my arrival. Within 10 minutes Dr. Linehan came in to speak with me. He was very kind and explained my options in a way I could understand. He explained that he doesn't write for long term pain meds which I could appreciate as I am looking for something to treat the problem. I would definitely recommend Dr. Linehan and his staff!

He walked into the room stating he doesn't manage pain but sends information to your family doctor. I have had 12 injectons into and around the spine ana they didn't work so he wants to do 3 more injectons and starting my treatment all over again if you have chronic pain do not go to this doctor and find a pain management doctor that really manages pain!!!!
