My Medical Doctor office had problems arranging consult with Dr Boatwright office and requested we check with Palmetto Pain Center about appointment. At Palmetto Spine and Pain Center we were given appointment time and paper work to have completed at time of appointment My husband had an appointment at 10:30 AM We arrived at Palmetto Spine and Pain Center at 10:20 AM and was informed that because we were not there at 9:45AM to put information in computer that the doctor would not see us. We were not ever informed to be there at 9:45AM when appointment was at 10:30 ! So if you not there 45minutes earlier they will not see you! This is no type of way to treat their patients who are in pain reaching out for help! They have no compassion for their patients ??

Very disappointed that i was ignored for over 3 weeks when I moved back to this area and wanted to be a patient again. I did nothing wrong while being a patient, and left on friendly terms when i moved to another state. I had paid for my records after I moved about 2 yrs ago. If I wasn't going to be accepted back in the practice, a prompt reply to my request would of been proper protocol, not ignore my several requests. Rumor has it that they don't want to take medicare.

Do not go to this doctor if you are in pain. You will waste up to 3 hours waiting. All he wanted to do was give me epidural shots that are dangerous and did not work at all for me.He threatened to take away my pain medication if I didn't take shots. After, three very scary shots that did not work he wanted to do a fourth! Would not take no for an answer! And, my pain is not in my back!

The staff of dr boatwright are very friendly. Page is very nice lady. They always help me when my pain starts to act up. I been with all different pain clinics and this one is the best. I wouldnt go no other place. So what if there behind and u have to wait. They care about there patients. When dr boatwright able to come back full time ill make sure i can make apptoinment with him. The pain clinic is the best ive ever been too.
