I had DC Wrkrs Comp Insurance. I was his patient for 1+ yrs w/neck & back injury. I was assigned the usual non-invasive methods PT, etc. He recommended surgery for neck. For the back, a cortisone shot. I've had them before, no problem. By this time, I was questioning my plan of care/pain mgmt. When he gave me the shot. He jammed the needle in my spine w/out care and I lifted off the table involuntarily. He showed no remorse. That same appt he sent a note to return me to work-no restrictions.

Never on time. His idea of fixing a problem is throwing more medicine and higher doses at it and hoping something sticks. I’m worse off then when I started.

I don't know what I would have done without Advanced Spine and Pain. The staff is polite and helpful. Cherith Zorbas the NP is so compassionate.

I would highly recommend Dr. Raley. He is willing to listen, discuss options and takes a long term approach that he believes is the best for each individual. Even though he is a surgeon, his first approach isn't always surgery. His office staff, Dominique and Aleashia, are both great at making sure I can get appointments that work with my work schedule and have made sure that I have insurance approval before any treatment, procedure or medicine is prescribed.

Dr. Raley is an energetic, personable, and compassionate individual. These traits help him to be the gifted physician he is, but it’s also clear that he has technical expertise. I’ve had significant pain reduction after receiving treatment and consultation. This is a busy practice. The office staff is aware that their patients have acute and/or chronic pain issues and is cordial and organized. Scheduling appointments has not been difficult and office wait times have been reasonable.

I had an L5-S1 Injury and wish I had several more thousand characters to write and express the gratitude I felt after being seen and taken care of by DR. Raley and his staff. I had gone for almost 6 months of extreme pain before I found them but from the first day until the last they took care of me not only physically but made sure I was well to do from all aspects of the patient experience, I have to say I was in such despair before I met the team, but after I did and had a successful surgery-

My wife goes here for treatment of fractured vertebrae in her back and all the staff are wonderful. Dr. Raley has been especially helpful in getting my wife back to a more functional state with his treatment. I would recommend everyone who needs treatment of a spinal injury give this place a chance.

Dr. Raley has always taken his time and explained medical conditions to me. He is kind and in my opinion has a very good beside manner. He is concerned and has shown patience when handling my problem. He is also very gentle when doing my epideral injections, therefore making the whole experience less stressful. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr Raley is my specialist. He is an excellent physician with a very broad knowledge of orthopedic conditions (see list on this web site). He also specializes in treating the pain associated with those conditions. Dr. Raley was recommended to me by my neighbor whom he had successfully treated with spinal injections. Dr Raley diagnosed and treated a foot stress fracture and Morton's neuroma- which my podiatrist had missed! Later, he also successfully treated bursitis and severe back pain-He's BEST
