I was sent to this Dr because of chronic back pain (3 bulging disc, and degenerative disc disease) she prescribed me tramadol and sent me on my way. Well I suffer from bi-polar disorder and have a few different medications I take for that and have been told to not take tramadol yet she refuses to change my meds at all, it's stay on what I am on or take nothing at all. I fell on the ice in Feb and couldn't get an appointment until the end of April to see her and she walked in said what she had to say and left, she wouldn't even give me a chance to talk to her. I had to go through CHC and have a new MRI ordered on my back because she wouldn't send me for one, I got the results back for it and one of my disc is completely out and floating in my spinal fluids and she has done nothing. I have had something new going on with my back for the last month and I can't get in to see her until the end of September! I have talked to her emergency nurse and all they are willing to do is more x-rays. My pain is to a point it is severe, when I lay down it's like there is a nerve being pinched and it constantly makes me feel like I have to go pee and I don't, I barely sleep because I can't lay for long without hurting and have even had issue where I have urinated on myself, yet they give me no options. She is a horrible Doctor, and I am looking for another Dr that will accept medicaid so I do not have to go back to a Dr who doesn't care how I actually feel, heck she won't even give me 5 mins to discuss how I feel with her. Beware unless you want to be treated like you don't matter or like you are making up your pain! I am sick of suffering so bad because my Doctor could careless about what I really have going on. Also they have billed my medicaid for an office visit when all they did was call in my muscle relaxers! Good luck if you get send to Dr Wagle!

I transferred to this doctor when my other one retired. I had a great life, before Dr. Wagle took over my pain management. I could go to my kids activities, walk my dog and swim, as long as I listened to my body and didn't push myself too hard. At my first appointment she starts bad mouthing my old doc..."She doesn't know what she is doing, She's never had pain management training, She has you on a lethal dose of narcotics." Well, I wasn't dead yet, and I had a pretty good life because my pain was under control! It's now 18 months later and I am bed ridden, because Dr. Wagle has decreased my meds to one-fifth of what I had been taking. She wants to do epidural spinal injections, but I won't let her. I had been told by another specialist that ESIs won't help me, besides the fact that the companies that make ESIs contraindicate its use near neural tissue. In layman's terms, they instruct practitioners NOT to inject them near nerve tissue. Where is she injecting them? Next to the spinal nerves that control everything your body does. This procedure is a big money maker for doctors, they repeat it every few months, and it is quick to do. Eventually, the nerves where it has been injected are surrounded and trapped by scar tissue and the pain becomes unbearable. The last few times I've seen her, I have been in tears because I'm in so much pain and I have waited over an hour to see her. No one should suffer with chronic pain in this day and age...it's 2014 for crying out loud!!! All I want, is to be able to enjoy life. I am now in misery every single day, because of Dr. Wagle.

look elsewhere show details look elsewhere

OMG, It started while I was waiting in the lobby to be called back. The receptionist was ranting and raving about a patient who transferred care elsewhere. Major HIPPA violation- I knew her name, insurance & where she was transferring care to from the receptionist's rants. Four people cycled in & out just to check me in. I waited two hours to see the doctor for 5 minutes. There was no exam, which they are billing my insurance large amounts of money for. They made assumptions without an exam & are in such a mindset that everyone is seeking narcotics that I gave up trying to talk after a few minutes & just wanted to cut my losses & get out of there. They talk bad about patients as soon as they leave. Stay far away from this place!

Beware. This physician doesn't know her limits. Prescribes narcotics too easily.

Dr.Wagle is an excellent pain relief provided. I have lower lumbar pain & sciatic nerve pain. I went to 3 other Dr.'s before I was referred to Dr Wagle. Those other Dr.'s didn't do a thing to control my pain. Dr.Wagle knows right where to give me spinal injections. I have referred other patients to her as well.

Nothing like being under the knife and finding out after the fact that your anesthesiologist (Dr. Wagle) is not a preferred provider. We have excellent insurance and it really sucks that we have to pay the non-preferred provider overcharges, and that it could not be resolved with the doctor. Beware!
