The visit was courteous & respectful. I was called within a couple of minutes of me getting there. The two doctors Timothy R. Lubenow & his assistant was very knowledgeable in explaining to me why they couldn't take over my intethecal pain pump @ the same time Dr. Timothy & his assistant was able to refer me to a different facility where they might be able to take over my pain pump. He explain to that the doctors in the in the facility were more aggressive in managing the intethecal pain pump. I would recommend Dr. Timothy & his assistant to anyone that is suffering from chronic & severe pain of any kind to his pain management clinic. Thank U !!!

Dr Lubenow's been treating me for over 13 years for chronic pain as a result of multiple back surgeries. He is extremely knowledgeable, informative and compassionate. He is current on all the latest treatment options and techniques. He uses a very methodical approach to treatment by listening to you, examinations, diagnostics and medical records. He's the best! Also wonderful staff! Can't say enough about Susan and Noel! Minimal wait times at office visits. Thx for all you do - Dave R.

Well, he’s the same guy I met 10+ years ago!!! He did everything he could all those years ago to find the proper cocktail of medicine to help my pain for my CRPS, and I’ve been on the same meds since, he made me feel like a new person. I would recommend him to ANYBODY I know!, and I have!!!!!! I would never trust anybody else!! Thanks Dr. Lubinaw. Ags

I have been a long-term patient of Dr Lubenow after my CRPS diagnosis in 2005. He stepped in and took me on after other pain specialists reached the end of their knowledge and gave up on finding treatments to ameliorate my condition. I have had appointments at the downtown location, the Oak Park location, and during COVID, televisits. The entire group is on the cutting edge of treatment options for chronic pain and works hard to find the best possible combination of available treatments for each individual’s unique set of circumstances. They listen to you, working in a partnership with you to help you reach your goals and improve your quality of life. They provide educational seminars, provide resources for living with chronic pain, as well as having a fantastic psychologist in their group. Their fantastic support staff works tirelessly with your insurance to ensure that the best treatment options for you are covered. If you suffer from chronic pain, they are simply the best.

Dr. Lubenow is amazing! He took his time & explained everything very well to me. He answered all my questions & all of his assistants were incredible as well. I have never felt so much care & compassion as I did with Dr. Lubenow. I’m looking forward to receiving my spinal cord stimulator & can’t wait to feel better. I’m 100% confident that Dr. Lubenow will help me with my excruciating pain so that I can go back to work!!!

He’s not the same doctor he used to be & seems to spend less time concerning himself with pain management & his patients’ well-being than peddling lies about medicine. He said there’s no evidence opiates help pain (false, & we’ve known this for centuries). But he pushed CBD, which doesn’t have a single clinical trial in the world demonstrating its effectiveness in people with pain. Very sad he’s not the doctor he used to be. He used to put patients first. One time, he claimed my pain medicine wasn’t worse because he didn’t “see” proof of it. Even basic doctors know that pain isn’t visible, & since you’re not allowed to cry in his office, how can anyone “prove” increased pain?

Been with Dr Lubenow since 2015. He has given me numerous injections in my lumbar spine that helped until I had to have surgery. He is very good at managing my pain. I would definitely recommend him as your doctor.
