I have been a patient of Dr. Naftulin's for a bout a year. The time the staff takes to spend with you is amazing. Their level of concern, making sure you are comfortable and have an understanding of you diagnosis is unmatched. I am grateful for all they have done for me in relieving that pain I have in my lower back.

I did not have a good experience with Dr. Naftulin. I had an injection in my neck in 2015 at a surgical center. Anesthesia was administered but he did not wait until it had taken full affect and it was very painful. When I said something to him he snapped back with something like, "well, it's going to hurt!"

Dr. Naftulin is a contradicting, insulting, and one of the most asinine physicians I have ever met. I wish upon him the chronic pain I suffer from on a daily basis and be told so judgementally that his pain meds aren't helping him although it provides relief and provides some quality of life as he did to me. He didn't exam me nor discuss my issues. For someone with so much experience, he should know that what he did was not only unfair but also very cruel.
