We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Walked in limping and after 3 injections ended up in a wheel chair. Dr. Dar informed me he would write off what my insurance didn’t cover and I later received bills for what he stated would be written off. Don’t waste your time and go to a surgeon. He had the audacity to tell my spouse my pain was mental and that is when we realized his goals didn’t align with my own. Tired of painkillers and being in pain, I found Dr. Cyr and cried after my first surgery as I could now walk with my young daughter as she held my hand.

Staff is uncaring and incompetent. The facility did unneeded tests then billed me and the insurance for it. We agreed while I was at the appointment there was NO need for the tests and such tests would not be completed since I was not seeking continuing treatment with the Doctor's office (my visit was an informational/interview type of visit.) For nearly a year the billing office continues to send me bills claiming I owe for services NOT requested or required. The billing office is horrible.

Started with Dr Dar years ago but now he's too busy to see me. I love PA Watson & wish he could do my procedure. I've had 4 other drs having to fill in for Dar even tho my apts or procedure is scheduled with him. His staff is always making errors & it effects my insurance. Extremely frustrated!!!

He only does it for the money and doesn't care. He doesn't even spend 15 mins with you in the office just injections after injections and out of the office. They didn't find a cure another Dr found it for my husband and on top of that worse billing office ever that doesn't return phone calls.

Dr. Dar and PA Watson are the best. Very helpful, kind and they listen to you. I've never felt dismissed or unheard with them. The wait can sometimes be a little long but over all worth every minute. They take their time with everyone.

I have been coming to Dr. Dar and PA Watson for almost 10 years. They are professional - they care - listen - and try to do what is BEST for you. Had injections for 4 years then finally had to have back surgery. They now are helping me cope with chronic pain from 3 failed and 1 correct back surgery. I won't lie sometimes the wait can be tough, but it's because they treat you as family and don't Rush you in and out. been to another pain clinic - came back to the BEST!

I see his assistant Watson. The sweetest person who takes the time to listen. I've been with them about 31/2 yrs. The staff is great. Any problem or concern you have they will take care of you.
