Coeur d'Alene, ID |
The worst experience I ever had with a doctor. Rude, does not listen, makes accusations, and demeaning. If you are looking for a doctor that wants your money and treats you horrible, please use Dr. Magnuson!
Moscow, ID |
I would not recommend Dr. Magnuson to others seeking procedures for chronic pain relief. After moving cross country from a good pain provider, I had a incredibly negative experience with Dr. Magnuson. He asked me what procedure I have had that was most beneficial, and when I answered he told me I've never had that procedure (I had within the past 10 months, meaning he didn't read my records at all). Most importantly, he did not use local anesthetic prior to procedure which made it horrific.
