Dr. Li works to find the reasons for my pain, which has not been easy or clearcut. He continues to explore options for treatment and invests much time with me in discussing these options and the pros and cons with them. He is very much current with options that have been well "tested". I have full trust and faith in his honesty, care and knowledge.

I had 2 stims and I like my Dr. He really understands my pain and that its really not in my head. My stims are another tool to use just as other pain management. I wont give mine back. lol He is very smart and he does care . He has really helped me . Having the 7 day trial was painful but it was all worth the pain to get out of some pain.Not a cure. You have to be sure its for you. If you can be strong as hard as it is you will find some releif. I have sent a few of my friends to Dr.Li

Dr. Li has been a fantastic surgeon and pain specialist. He recently implanted a trial Pain Stimulator to which I had fantastic response to - 90%+ Pain Relief. I also develop a spinal fluid leak (which has happened to me twice before in 2014 and 2007), Dr. Li kept a daily follow-up on me even sending him pictures of the area (even over a weekend). He has shown great intellect and great surgical skills not to mention his extreme compassion for all I have been through.

Dr. Li removed spinal cord stimulator so I could get MRI. Procedure went well and he offered options to consider to manage chronic pain. He was patient and thoughtful and it was appreciated.

Be aware! Lots of confidence but not able to diagnose correctly. Wasted time and money going to Dr. Li. Very expensive injection procedure for neck pain has made me feel worse. Stay away from this doctor.

Dr. Li is very professional and very smart. I suffered with back pain for many years before finding him, and he was the only one who suggested spinal cord stimulation. What a quality of life saver! He also diagnosed a rare condition and helped me understand the choices I had for treatment. I received excellent compassionate care. Couldn't ask for anyone better.

Absolute worst. He spent two years treating me for a back issue and when he told me to see a spine surgeon, I did and had such advanced hip osteoarthritis. Drs at HSS told me it wasn’t my back in minutes. What a waste. He told another person I know they needed a new hip when they absolutely did not. Thank God for NY doctors. This man cannot diagnose or treat. Be aware!

Dr Li administer my spinal injection. I opted to not use general anesthesia, so I was awake for the process. As it was being preformed, Dr. Li kept a calm conversation going with me to help with nerves. Very nice with great bedside manner. So glad I found him.
