M y experience with Dr Ford has been very helpful. On my first visit he took time to explain to my husband and me the results of my MRI, and also gave us visual aides . He was very thorough and gave us plenty of time. The two injections he has given me have been helpful . His staff is also helpful and careful about details. I would refer anyone to him. S.

Dr Ford is a very fine pain specialist. Treating back pain is a tricky business and I have had great results from his treatments. He has treated my facet joints, si joints, and lumbar spine, all with great results.

I saw Dr Ford numerous times. He had pr bedside manners and at times was rude. I liked his PA much better. All Dr Ford ever wanted to do was ablation and give me pain meds. I wanted off the meds and some relief. I finally convinced my insurance company to allow me to change pain management doctors. What a difference it made in my life. Not every doctor is the right fit for every patient. It would just be nice if he had even tried.

Mabear in Redmond, OR – Nov 14, 2018
I had 4 different neck nerves burnt and was told i might have some side effects. Well he was right about having side effects. I am now out $10,000 dollars and i hurt worse now than when i went to him. This procedure is not worth $10,000 it is a temporary fix if you are lucky and it even works. You will have to do it again in 6 months to 11/2yrs. if you are lucky and then you get to spend another $10,000 to do it again. I would not do this procedure if i were you it is a horrible choice.
