Patient Comments (2)
Los Angeles, CA |
I am a chronic back pain sufferer who takes medication that are narcotics. Because the medications I take are controlled substances, Dr. Nazareth refused to help me. I did not choose to have back pain and wish I didn't have to use prescription drugs to function. But the most difficult thing about being a pain management patient is the poor treatment I receive from Doctors like Dr. Nazareth who care more about maintaining their standing with the DEA than they do about the patients themselves.

Had to see Dr Nazareth for excruciating pain in my hip when my doctor was out. He refused to treat me, said he didn't want to get involved and refused to refer me to ortho or physio. He was hesitant for xray and said I had too much radiation already and cortisone shots are not good for me. He refused to diagnose bursitis and walked out on me giving me nothing. The next day I saw another doctor who diagnosed hip bursitis and gave me a Cortisone injection and guess what? My pain is gone.
