I inherited arthritis from my moms side of the family. I have seen Dr. Mayhew many many time over the past 8 years. He is the reason that I have been able to put off hip and knee replacements for all those years. He is very professional and most of all he interacts with his patients. I have recommended him to all my friends who are talking about joint replacement because it’s better to keep what god gave me as long as I can.Dr Mayhew is the best Pain Management PERIOD!

I met with Dr. Mayhew to review my pain, etc., and listen to his review, after MRI, and what he can do to relieve my pain level. After 4 diagnostic consultation appointments and 2 actual treatments, I am almost pain free. The treatments for me last appx. 1-1/2 years. George Asteris

Six years ago I moved to the Myrtle Beach area and scheduled my first appt. with Dr. Mayhew, I was a little unsettled about the transition process and how I would continue my treatment. Dr. Mayhew and his staff welcomed me as a new patient, cont. my treatment without interruption, & have always strived to provide any appt. I need in a timely manner. Dr. Mayhew is prompt with his appt. times & always listens to any concerns I have without making me feel rushed. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been to many Pain Management Doctors over the course of 18 years, and Dr Mayhew is the best. I have chronic back pain that can no longer be corrected by surgery and I have found him to be very willing to discuss the options that might help me. He listens to what I have to say and that is very rare in my experience. He genuinely wants to help his patients. His nurse, Terri, is also very knowledgeable and pleasant. I would confidently recommend Dr Mayhew to anyone.

Dr. Mayhew is both personal and professional. He is very attentive to all my concerns and my pain issues. He is by far one of if not the best pain management doctors I have gone to. He always takes the time to make sure we address any issues that I have with my pain and medication. Wait time is zero to five minutes in the waiting room, and, zero to five minutes wait patient room. I would recommend Dr. Mayhew to anyone in need of Pain Management

Dr. Mayhew is hands-down the best pain management physician I have seen in 15 years of dealing with occipital neuralgia. He understands the condition and offered several treatment options. He always listens to and HEARS me. His bedside manner is exemplary, and his clinical skills are excellent.

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.
