I’ve been with Dr Kitchen since he started at CCPM (I was his first patient the weekend before he actually started), and he’s been one of the best doctors I’ve ever had. He always takes the time to listen and really hear my concerns. I feel like he genuinely cares about me as a person, not just as a paycheck or someone to throw a script at and move out the door. I feel like we work together as part of my healthcare team. Chronic pain is a difficult thing to treat and control, and it’s very frustrating and disheartening at times, but Dr Kitchen has never given up on me and is always supportive in trying new and different things to help, and is great about leaving things alone when they’re working. I can’t recommend him highly enough, and he’s one of the few doctors I refer people to. I’d drive hours to see him if I had to, and did for a while until they opened more offices. Dr Kitchen is a wonderful doctor and a great person, too!

Dr. Kitchen makes me feel comfortable enough to completely trust his work and his decisions. We have not reached where we hoped to be, but I knew this would not go away, but rather we were hoping to ease the pain. Each procedure gets better

Really listens and takes the time to find solutions and gives great explanations that you can actually understand. Best doctor I've had yet since beginning my medical issues four years ago. I would HIGHLY recommend him. He genuinely cares about his patients and his nurse, Meredith is wonderful!!! You won't be disappointed.
