    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.

    well, let's see... i have been in pain since 10/2016... had my flu shot in my left arm. couldn't understand why it was still sore after 3-4 months.. i reached the point of no return when i could no longer sleep at night or lift my arm. so after looking at my mri and evaluating my condition dr davis said that i probably had my flu shot in the tendon....he gave me a shot in my shoulder...warned me of pain.there was "no pain' & i left the office being able to lift my arm above my head. genius

    AMAZING PHYSICIAN AND STAFF! Highly recommended for anyone who is having pain and has lost hope of finding pain relief. He helps you understand exactly what the problem is and what he can do to try and help provide pain relief. Him and his staff helps you step by step like a well oiled machine!

    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.
