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!!!
