Dr. Diwan helped me through a debilitating bout of sciatica. He recommended treatment that was cautious and also kept a close eye on how I was progressing. And I'm so glad his practice offers sedation for the steroid epidurals! The experience with Dr. Diwan was smooth and I always felt like I could reach out to him directly if I needed him.

Only doctor I've met who flaunts publications yet sucks with his procedures. I got no relief and to be honest feel worse now. Told me if I wasn't comfortable with him I shouldn't of done the procedure!

The doctor recommended i do an injection. I agreed . When I started to question him about it he got very defensive .On the day of procedure he was totally inconsiderate and told me if i don't trust him not to do it. I was all ready and in a lot of pain so i let him do it. That was a mistake i should have left. No consideration for my pain and my fear by him or the anesthsiologist. on follow up he was nasty and told me no guarantees . He did his best and i don't need to return.

I couldn't find a Pain Management Specialist that dealt with the whole body not just the spine…until I was referred to Dr. Diwan. He is excellent and very accommodating. After two knee replacements I was still in a lot of pain. No matter what my knee surgeon did it didn't help my pain but he was pleased with my range of motion. Dr. Diwan listened to me a d created a plan of action. I feel so much better now I may not have the knee revision surgery I thought was inevitable. He is kind & reassuri
