Went to several appointments, saw his p.a. all but the last time. He was so rude, I would never refer anybody here. Zero bedside manner and zero personality. Did not feel confident in his staff. They were rude and the whole bunch were condescending.

Pain management options are lacking and the PA and assistant were too busy in clinic to help me. I help pay your salaries...so get unbusy. avoid this medical group, if you can.
