Dr. Wells has performed several procedures injections, nerve ablation etc. to reduce pain in my back caused by stenosis. I have been pleased with the results. He and his team, especially P.A. Mark Udy, have been very helpful. I recommend Desert Pain heartily.

I had a kyphoplasty procedure along with several other procedures from Dr. Wells over the past 5 years and have found him along with his staff to be caring and excellent in every aspect of their work. They have been so helpful with my pain and injuries. I would refer their office to any of my friends in need of pain management.

Happy Patient in St George, UT – May 12, 2016
The only help you get here is when you get sent elsewhere. They simply fleece you for your insurance and no real care is given. Docotor Brian Jorgensen on staff is a JOKE: This guy should in NO WAY be involved directly with humans. He was put in charge of me for some reason after a while. I told him that I wanted another doctor since he was a MORON. We continued our visit, he is a moron. Scheduled a visit with a REAL Doctor and let him know once again that he was a MORON.
