I was not impressed with Dr. Bari's philosophic approach to Pain Management. I was refereed to her prior to hip replacement surgery to try and manage arthritic pain. Her approach was to correct the problem with my hip, which was already being done by an orthopedic specialist. Needless to say One visit and DONE. As far as Pain Management I would not refer you to Alliance Spine & Pain Centers in Augusta GA. Save your time and see someone who will treat you for actual Pain Management. As a retired US Marine, I have a large tolerance to pain, when I ask for Pain medicine, I am in real pain. Here I was treated as if I was just chasing the drugs vice actually in pain. This just did not sit well with me hence why I say overall 1. Their philosophy may work for some patients, but one size does not fit all and patients don't like to be shoe-horned into a treatment that does not address their condition.

Was fortunate to discover Dr. Bari after years of care with other Pain Management Specialists which were essentially "pill pushers." Dr. Bari correctly diagnosed my condition and administered direct treatment to each level of my back causing pain. Received a series of epidural injections which were expertly delivered and most importantly effective at combating major areas of pain. The other providers and office staff are top rate. I highly recommend Dr. Bari and this practice as a whole.
