I was extremely grateful to Dr Davis for coming to St Johns and re-filling my pain pump in the ICU.

After many years of pain & frustration- prior to & following cervical disc replacements & fusions- I found Dr. Davis. He is knowledgeable, compassionate & talented. He has helped me more than any of the other pain doctors. He does not just send me to the pharmacy for more meds that mask the cause of my pain. He has performed several procedures that significantly reduce my pain. I am able to exercise & play golf- often. His office & staff are a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Dr. Davis!

I had a 5 star visit with Dr. Davis. He took a phone call when I was in severe pain on Friday evening and set me up for an appointment during the middle of COVID-19 one business day later. The entire staff was protective and safe during a pandemic and the care and advise was exceptional. Everyone should hopefully never have pain BUT if you do you cannot do better than a visit to Dr. Tim Davis.

Have 2 herniated discs. My doctor recommended Dr. DAVIS. Walked in with a pain ridden lower back emphasis on Walked in. Had the cortisone steroid epidural shot in 2 places. Was driven home to rest. Couldn't walk or stand for more than 30 seconds. He Must have pinched the nerve or punctured it. I was bed ridden for 30 days. 6 days later called for a follow up. Sec. Said if you can't walk in here it's a 250 dollar fee to get doc on phone. Do yourselves a favor run fast away from this guy.Butcher

I came to Dr. Davis for chronic shoulder muscle spasm. He gave me a shot in my neck. That night, the side of my scalp went numb. I left two messages over two hours. He not only didn't call back that night, he never called back at all. Subsequently I have had a head ache since the injection, for about a month. I have called him numerous times over four weeks, wondering if this was a side effect. He called back once, when I couldn't pick up, and he never tried again. He doesn't care.

I ended up at Dr. Davis's office after a neighbor referred me to him. The first thing I noticed about his office is his staff. They are really wonderful. Friendly. Patient. Helpful. Next, is that they are leaning into technology. You can make appointments on-line and they use an iPad instead of rote intake forms. Finally, Dr. Davis was great. Great bed-side manner. Took his time to explain everything to me. Nailed the diagnosis. Everything you could want in a doctors appointment.

Felt as though the doctor was trying to get as many patients in and out without really giving his undivided attention to each patient. Confirmed that by getting on a consultation call instead of coming back in and paying another high co-pay. The call lasted about 5-6 minutes with the doctor not even telling me what was wrong and felt like he was trying to get the call over with ASAP (waste of $75). Would NOT recommend this doctor to friends or family.

A terrible experience that endangered my life. Inefficient, ignorant staff with minimal grasp of English, absolutely shocking lack of skills, flexibility or compassion. I am a 2 time cancer survivor & have been treated by some of the best Dr's in the world, Davis is not one of them. Partner Dr Fung is the only redeeming feature of this mismanaged nightmare of a practice. Arrogant and arbitrary inconsistency prevails. No accountability. Frequent staff turnover means bottom of the barrel pickings.
