Dr. Jo is AWESOME! He is very thorough, he doesn't rush me like the other money-hungry doctors out there. He takes his time understanding what my problems are and addressing them. My pain has dramatically decreased. He is the ONLY pain management doctor that listens when I say I DO NOT want NARCOTICS or any habit forming medication. I am now pain free after getting the Spinal Cord Stimulator. The staff is great! My only issue is the lobby can get packed at times.

amazing
I used to think the man was amazing until something doesn't go in his favor. He becomes arrogant, almost childlike. Not all patients are the same, should be treated as an individual not the way he thinks you should react to a situation. I received my medical records-- half the information that I had provided wasn't on the records or was only documented the way he perceived the situation. I think he is a smooth talker and you may get talked into something that you don't want.
