Patient Comments (9)
Toledo, OH |
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 $$

Dr. Ryan Szepiela is a very wonderful doctor. He goes above and beyond to do what needs to be done to get you well. At least from my experience with him he does the very best.

Dr. Szepiela and his staff are second to none. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Thank you all for how much you care about your patients.

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!
Went in for a back pain an doctor just talked to me for 2 mins and refered me to a physical therapist. Really ounly 2 mins. No need get a whole lot of info. No much caring. This is my second visits and will be the last one. Not very impressed at all.

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.

Excellent doctor, actually takes his time and listens to you!
Toledo, OH |
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.
