Went to the Pain Clinic at the Hospital for Radio Frequency Ablation for a blown disc in my lower back. The office manager Chelsea called ahead of time to tell me my insurance was approved. Had the procedure. A month later got a bill from BCBS for $6400! Turns out, Chelsea got a verbal approval from Blue Cross because she was too lazy to do it the correct way and get a written approval. Now I'm stuck with the bill! Run the other way from these people. Disrespectful, crass & not helpful at all.

Faynzilberg is the worst doctors I know. He is condescending to his patients as if he thinks he's better than them. He has no grasp of what happens to the pain patients he won't help. Being one of them I know since my suffering was beyond measure. Multiple suicide attempts followed. I had many epidural injections before I came to him but he insisted on another before trying methadone. He discharged me when it failed giving no explanation for not putting me on methadone. STAY CLEAR OF THIS JERK
Terrible listener. Cuts you off when trying to explain symptoms. Always feel like he's rushed and once cut me off saying we had only 15 minutes and he wanted to talk. He has not always been truthful and can't keep track of referrals etc. I've been going to the pain clinic for years but as it has grown, the care has gone way down. He is good at what he does in the procedure room.

Without the care of Dr Faynzilberg and his staff at the pain clinic at Anna Jaques, I would likely be wheelchair bound and living in unbearable pain (as I had for 15 years prior!). He has a lot of compassion and truly wants to find a treatment that works for each particular patient. My mother and I are both patients. We both are very happy to say that Dr Faynzilberg's care has made an extremely noticeable improvement to our life quality.

I was forced to give one star as you are unable to post with a no star rating. The pain clinic is substandard, rude and devious in policy and practice..I waited 6 weeks for an appointment my PCP set up for me on a Monday afternoon in mid April. I was called once by their office on the Friday before my appointment (although they lied and said they called me "several times, then said numerous times) with them leaving a voicemail that I needed to confirm my appt by noon time the Friday prior.

I called Dr.Simon Faynzilberg 4-5 times in a week and a half period to schedule a consult. I was instructed to get all my medical records and fax to the office for review. Medical records faxed all the appropriate paper work to his office while I waited. I called SEVERALl times in the days that followed to get an update on a consult appointment. I was told I would get a call by the end of the week.NEVER happened.Do you realize people who want an appointment are in severe PAIN?
