DR KOLE SEEMS TO BE A VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE DOCTOR IN HIS FIELD, OUR PROBLEM WITH HIS OFFICE IS HIS BUSINESS PRACTICES.WE WERE TOLD AT FIRST CONSULT THERE WOULD BE A DRUG SCREEN FOR ILLICIT DRUGS, NO PROBLEM UNDERSTANDABLE. RECENTLEY RECEIVED THE INSURANCE STATEMENT , HIS OFFICE BILLED 150.00 FOR THE DRUG SCREEN AND HAD OVER 1,400.00 OF TESTS DONE OF WHICH ARE NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE. THE BILL SHOWS THE SAMPLE WAS TESTED FOR EVERY LEGAL MEDICATION AND ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE.

Dr. Kole is one of the best pain management doctors I've met. He's kind, knowledgeable and keeps it real with you. Having MS is not easy, but Dr.Kole made it more manageable by offering pain solutions that worked. His office staff are friendly and try to get you seen same day if it's an emergency. Thanks Dr. Kole &staff!

I've seen a few pain specialist, anesthesiologists pain specific, and most really don't listen to your needs, they in Ave have minds made-up, treat you as if guinea pig. They fear prescribing pain meds so they treat you w/ more invasive treatment, ie; shots in back, surgeries, etc. I've tried many non narcotic treatment including invasive procedure which left me worse. Dr. Kole listens, cares deeply, and believes in you, he has done this long enough to spot a fake. He's a great dr. !

Dr. Cole has been helping me with my pain since my accident over ten years ago. I had different procedures along the way, all buying me time until my ultimate lumbar fusion surgery. Every step along the way Dr. Cole has made good sound decisions regarding my pain and has kept me comfortable. The entire staff is awesome and now that they are in the new location, I can't think of anywhere else I would rather go than to Dr. Cole. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Cole to Family and Friends!

Dr.Kole is by far the most caring doctor that I have ever had! He takes time to listen to you, helps with your pain mgt, and genuinely cares for all of his patients.

Tried to talk to him on what medicine my insurance covered in he ignored all of it and give me something that my shirts did not cover in the cost way too much and he also did not listen on what medicine I was allergic to and kept writing me for medicine that my body would deny. I gave him my medical records and he lost them. Basically doesn't listen at all and thinks it's normal for a 25 year old to have bulging disks and a fusion!
