My anaesthesiologist Timothy Lubenow M.D.
Dr. Timothy Lubenow is my Anaesthesiologist for the past 32 years. I cannot thank him enough for treating & believing in me, even, when my PT's wanted to give up on me. It is because of Dr. Lubenow's innate ability to listen to his patients, & his sure determination for a treatment plan that my CRPS went into remission 30 years ago. I most recently saw him with regards to a surgery that could of had a negative affect on my CRPS. Needless to say, he went into action, & laid out a plan with my surgeon that was a hugh success. Dr. Lubenow & his RN's are excellent. Unfortunately, when they are out of town the front desk does not function at all to the benefit of his patients.

Best CRPS Dr Ever
Dr Lubenow is very knowledgeable about a wide variety of pain management issues but he is the best at CRPS and treatment of it! I love his thinking out of the box and he never ever questions your pain or the amount of pain your in!

Had a piriformis injection on 7-22-22. I woke up today and I still have some pain but Dr. Lubenow said this injection should start working in 4 to 5 days. I am praying that I will get at least 50% relief from what I was experiencing which was bad. I was treated with respect and they did a very good job.

Constantly late
Expect to be an hour behind on appointments. 2-3 hours behind on procedures. Spends 5 minutes with you, barely listens. Let’s one of hundreds of interns examine you. Like most Pain mgmt now a days pushes SCS implants as only option. So disappointed.

Lubenow came highly recommended by another physician. He is exactly as skilled and compassionate as I was told. I had no hope, wasn’t properly treated, and improperly diagnosed prior to the physician that sent him to me. I owe that physician my life. He sent me to Dr. Lubenow and I got hope, compassionate care, and proper treatment after suffering almost two years. I am an experienced nurse and I can’t honestly say that I have never met a physician, let alone one that treats pain who treats his patients exactly like he’d want to be treated. He’s incredible and I owe him my life.

I’m a physician with a rare condition called erythromelalgia and am so glad I found Dr. Lubenow. He took time to go over the condition with me, and answer questions, and started me on a medication regimen that is helping after a lot of misery, and after a dermatologist told me he could not help the soles of my feet that looked and felt liked they were burned. I highly recommend Dr. Lubenow.

The Most Knowledgeable & Explanatory Pain Doctor
Dr. Lubenow is very well versed in managing chronic pain. Everything he recommends is truly geared towards the patient to become capable of regainging life as it should be lived. Dr. Lubenow takes his time to review all alternatives available, the pros and cons which allows one to make decision on method of treatment. After treating with another pain specialist, it was a sigh of relief to be taken off of the amount of opiates I was being subscribed. I would highly recommend Dr. Lubenow.

Not the same doctor he used to be & seems to be less interested in pain management & his patients’ well-being. 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. He claimed my pain 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? It often takes 2 hours to see him, & you may get 5 minutes with him. If he's in a bad mood, he yells & slams doors. I wish he would be the dr. he used to be.

I have seen Dr. Lubenow for over 10 years. He is a fantastic specialist. He was the only specialist who diagnosed my problem correctly. I would definitely recommend Dr Lubenow to anyone who is experiencing chronic pain. Spends time with his patients and explains everything to you so you actually understand. Great specialist. Can't say enough great things about Dr. Lubenow. He really cares about his patients.

Dr Lubenow has been an invaluable partner.
I have seen Dr Lubenow for several years now. He has been such a great partner, providing exceptional expertise in pain management. Using vast experience with interventional pain management strategies and procedures (both old and cutting edge) he is helping me in ways that no other practitioner can. Returning to function is the main goal and he is bit by bit making that happen. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
