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.

Could not hardly stand up or sit because of back problems. Had 4 or 5 visits and now I have hardly any pain at all. Thank God first of all then thank Dr Linehan for his professional care
in Hebron, OH |
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!
in Lancaster, OH |
He and his staff take the time to answer questions and provide thorough care.
in Baltimore, OH |
Very good Doctor and staff. Pleasant experince.
in Reynoldsburg |
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!!!!
