Too fast, not a real exam
Taylors, SC |
Several years ago my mother suffered an accident so severe that one of the best surgeons in South Carolina equated it to stepping on an IED in Iraq. She ended with steel bands holding her chest together after weeks of intensive care, and is now on disability. After moving to NMB, she needed a new pain dr. to fill her Fentanyl prescription. Dr. Mayhew treated her like a drug addict and she cried the entire ride home. Apparently she did not seem "disabled enough". Avoid like the plague

I told the P.A. that I thought that I might have fibromyalgia. I then named a few prescriptions commonly used to treat it another physician told me about. She then said, “She had no idea.” She’s a P.A. that works in a pain clinic she should know that. I list a few symptoms related to my condition to the doctor. He tells me that my trapezius goes into spasm. So I suggest muscle relaxers. He refused that idea and basically put me on more Gaba. Then the staff was unprofessional and rude.

Dr, Mayhew has been the only Doctor that has been willing to help me with my RSD. I have nerve damage to my left leg from knee down and have not been able to get a doctor to work on my left knee, Dr. Mayhew didn't even hesitate to do injection in both my knee's, and I've been like this for 6 years. I have been seeing Dr. Mayhew for a little less then a year and he has already gave me 2 injections in both my knee's.

Coming to a new area, I was nervous about finding a new Pain Specialist. He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to discuss your condition in detail. The procedure he performed for me was far less painful than I expected. He took his time and explained everything along the way.

I have found Dr. Mayhew to always be a very caring and qualified doctor and would never hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I also appreciate the fact that the people who assist him are always very friendly and helpful when you call his office or go in for an appointment.

Dr. Mayhew is a very kind and VERY Knowledgeable Doctor. He is very thorough and well respected by other Doctors. I'm being treated for pain due to a broken foot that won't heal and also, have been diagnosed with RSD, which is a nerve pain disorder, that is not widely recognized by all Doctors. However, Dr. Mayhew is very well versed on this medical condition. I had a nerve block done today and Dr. Mayhew and his nurse were so kind, gentle and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Mayhew!!!
