Without the treatments Dr. Szepiela suggested I follow through with I would be a non functioning human being. I am grateful to be able to walk on both feet after the PRP and just recently had back and hip PRP procedures. As long as I follow the protocol after the PRP treatments by helping myself to get better eventually it works. I would recommend the procedure for those who are active and want to continue to be active.

I’ve been dealing with chronic pain for the past 5 years, a patient with Dr Szepiela for only the past year. I find him arrogant, in a hurry or not listening to me. A recent event caused us to part ways. I will never recommend him to anyone.

I did a prp (platelet rich plasma) procedure with dr Ryan Szpiela in August of 2019, I went to them for low back pain. I would say when i went to them the pain would come and go I was still very mobile but just have pain after standing for long periods of time but not have pain all the time, and when I did experience pain it would be 7 or 8 outta 10. As of the day of this review the pain is there EVERYDAY and it is 2-3 times WORSE then it was before I did the procedure! I CANT bend without strong pain I can barely stand up straight after sitting or laying down and the worst part is I have to quit my work because I can no longer do it. I don’t write this review with intentions of harming the dr’s status, I only write it to caution people that this is my experience and it did not work AT ALL! It actually made things worse and I regret doing the procedure. My best friend has also done stem cell treatments and had no benefits from that either. I don’t wanna call it a scam but it’s de

After five years of "treatment" I finally asked for a few months off of the horrendous injections done to my back. I was told "no problem, just call when you need us" and five days later received a letter throwing me out of the practice due to personality difference. The same differences that meant nothing as long as I towed the line and agreed to expensive treatments that did not work. The minute I wanted to give my body a break, I was dismissed with no recourse available to me. Betrayed for $$

I've received care from Dr. Szepiela for the past few years. I've always been extremely satisfied with compassion and his business acumen. His staff will go above and beyond and have always over delivered when it comes to addressing your medical concerns. His receptionist Barb is fun loving and congenial. If you must be on a waiting list I suggest wait it'll be debatably the best decision you ever made! A++++ experiences in my book!

Dr. Szepiela has consistently been there for my husband the last 5 years adjusting and maintaining his service to keep my husband comfortable through his severe post op problem. I would highly recommend him. I found him compassionate and professional at all times.

I have had several herniated discs in my neck and back, just had a heart attack last year and he has not helped me AT ALL with my pain. I have had pain for 15 years and have been given only antidepressant medication and other nonsense new medications that have adversely caused me problems with my heart. They were all medications that warn not to take them if you have had heart problems. He has a huge ego, thinks you should shake off your ills and belittles you when complaining of pain.
