    Dr Head is definitely not looking to treat fairly any of his sick patients referred by Workman's compensation. Please help yourselves and record your session so that you are treated fairly and with respect. God bless you. And keep your head up.

    Head makes his living by declaring severely sick people ‘healthy’ as insurance companies pay him HUGE consultancy fees to do so. This man has no integrity and no empathy with the people he 'evaluates'. He tricks his visitors into a sense of false security and then withholds important information in his medical reports. He also asks questions that have no bearing on the sickness that the clients have. This man cares more about collecting insurance fees than his Hippocratic oath.

    I have to disagree with a lot of the reviews of Dr Head. After the initial questionnaire that wqas answered by me and filled out by office staff and took 2:45. When I saw the Dr he was very engaging and looked at and listened to me when I asked or answered a question. He seemed to be concerned for my well being and agreed with other doctors that I have seen for a workers Comp injury from 1 1/2 yrs ago. I just don't understand the reviews. The Dr was the opposite of what I read about.
