Dr V helped my Knee pain. I had my right knee replaced twice. Still had pain. He did Nerve block and nerve burning and I have no pain for last 9 months!
St.Peters MO |
He is very rude and dismissive does not examine you or ask you any questions gets angry if you ask or question his protocol ...not a good choice at all
I apologize that you felt this way during your visit at Elpis Pain Management Center. We have no set protocols for treatment. Every patient is treated individually. Chronic pain is a challenging problem and there is no single protocol that will treat all patients. I do strongly believe that Opioids have very limited role in treating Chronic pain. I do not like my patients to be dependent on Opioids. If you have any more questions, please feel free to call us and I will call you personally.

I'd give him 0 star if it's an option. This doctor is the worst. He doesn't care about his patient. He is arrogant, doesn't listen and absolutely doesn't care about his patient! He is lucky that the prescription he gave my husband that he had major side effects on didn't land my husband in the emergency room or I would have absolutely no qualms appealing to the board of medicine or whoever I needed to go to to have his license revoked. Definitely not recommended.
Fenton, MO |
I saw Dr V last week and for a nerve block for my knee pain. I had 2 knee replacements in last 5 years and continued to have knee pain. I am so happy!
Arnold, MO |
I attended a seminar where my doc talked about back pain and arthritis and effects on narcotics on our society. I have been seeing him since then. His wait time is sometimes long but its worth it.

I have been seeing Dr Manchanda since June, 2016. He helped me get off high doses of pain medications. I have nothing but respect for this guy
in Ofallon, MO |
Dr. Manchanda is a great doctor, I'm finally off pain drugs I been taking for years given by other pain doctors. I was on heavy doses of norcotics when I came to him and he slowly tapered me down. My pain is almost gone after the Radio frequency Ablation he did on me.
in Vandalia, Illinois |
Absolute waste of time. I was sent by my doctor because I have a herniated l5 s1 with a disc tear and he decided a pain management dr would be the best course of action. I had reservations about just being drugged up. Well I went to take my pre appointment urine test and after I took of work they didn't even have the order ready. So I had to take another day off and come back. The nurse practitioner treats you horrible and doesn't listen. I've never once asked for narcotics in fact other forms.
Perryville, MO |
I do NOT recommend this doctor to anyone! He doesn't listen to questions nor explain his reasoning for treatment. Very unfriendly and lacks any sort of compassion. I was in tears when I left his office.
