I cannot say enough good things about this Doctor! I am devestated to see he left his practice, looking to find you, Dr Metzger. I do not want anyone else treating my back pain. With you, and Dr Gregg Foos, I know I will always be a person first! Hope you. Open a new practice ASAP!

Dr. Scott Metzger is a fabulous doctor. I recently experienced the worst sciatica/ back pain that I have ever had. I went to Dr. Metzger, who was highly recommended to me . He has changed the quality of my life!!! I went from a pain level of 10 to a pain level of 1, sometimes 0. He found exactly the right spot to inject the medication. I am so grateful to him. Thank you, Dr. Metzger.

I have been seeing Dr. Metzger since 2003 is an excellent doctor. I have received all types of injections into the spine, shoulder and hip. He is ready to listen to my pain concerns and always treats the pain in just the right way. His office staff is very helpful and friendly. I used to go Shrewsbury and now go to the East Brunswick office. Everyone I have encountered has been professional and efficient. I recently saw Dr. Metzger's assistant Patrick and he was excellent as well.

I have been going to Dr. Metzger's office for quite a few years now. He is professional, courteous and gives you the utmost attention to your specific needs. His staff is amazing, courteous, competent and efficient. Coming from another pain management physician that left me feeling like an old shoe that he threw to the curb, I was skeptical about going to another pain management doctor. However, Dr. Metzger immediately put me at ease and left me confident that he would do everything he could.
