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.

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.
