Ill start with Dr Mei has me enjoying life again, In my opinion he shows concern. The staff is always professional and helps when there may be a problem. Ive read he forces imjections, untrue he recommends them and honestly ive had injections performed by him and they always made me feel better. I dont think i can trust anyone else sticking needles in me, Dr Mei always lets me know when he about to stick me and when there will be pressure. The waiting room, yes sometimes you may wait a lil bit, but to me its worth the wait. I highly recommend Dr.Mei for your pain management...

Dr. Mei is incredibly helpful and kind. He goes through your medications and explains what and why he is giving them to you and how they work. He often has other ideas of what could help with your pain in addition to or instead of medications. He honestly cares about his patients and their health.

I have been Dr. Mei patient for last three years. My previous pain doctor was very popular with high review rates. But his clinic was suddenly closed. I have the neck pain for over twenty years. I don't want to have cervical spine surgery. I had many epidural steroid injections but none was working. Dr. Mei did cervical facet branch RF ablation treatment. My neck pain is gone for over two years. My pain medicine goes to very lower. My life quality has been improved. I know Dr. Mei has very strict pain medicine policies. I think he is an excellent pain doctor.

I've been seeing Dr. Mei for many years now & have to say that he is the Best pain management Doctor I have ever been seen by. He is very attentive to the needs of his patients and explains procedures & medications as best he can so that we as patients have a clear understanding of what's happening. He is not a Dr. Who messes around where scripts are involved. You play by his rules or You're gone. Plain & simple. To those who dislike and are complaining about Dr. Mei, You are the problem not him

Talked down to me the entire time. As someone said before like I was on trial. An this wasn't even for pm the was the suboxone program which I paid for to get help actually started crying the office and demanded my money back of corse they won't do that. So I'm stuck with him for the month but better believe I won't ever go back. Horrible worst dr experience of my life. No people skills. There all day from 8am-3pm so slow !!!

My experience was awful, I've never ever gotton so upset with the way I was treated and accused of lieing when it was my first time visit, I had no reason to lie he wasn't my pain Dr till I signed papers which was only 30 mins before I seen him. I cried all the way home because I was so disrespected on top of being pressed to hard in the areas I was hurting at. I'll never go back my 1st visit turned into my last. Very bad mannered. Treated me as if I was a child.

Dr.Mei has been very understanding and helpful with control of my chronic pain. Not to mention I am very satisfied with my injections which are performed at his office. Are they scary no. Do they work? Yes!
