This is a GREAT Dr. If you are suffering from Certain, Specific problems as he Only offers STEROID treatments for ANY/ALL PAIN Issues. Steroid Treatments are NOT a Viable treatment for ALL pain problems and could potentially have Dangerous Side affects that will Far Outweigh ANY benefits from Steroid treatment. He would be a GREAT asset to the Sports Med. community, but for the Other 80% Plus patients he takes on, he is giving these treatments with OUT explaining Which "Steroids" and if he Does, he does NOT tell you about Very Serious and Potentially Dangerous side-effects of Steroid Treatment for Non-Arthritic persons. His staff is Friendly and theyhave Just opened a Fabulous new Phys. Therapy clinic in Kailua-Kona. he is N OT a "pain Specialist" NOR a "Pain Mgmt" Dr.. I would NOT rec. this particular Dr. unless your PCP is Well Informed and has made a Legitimate Referral; and is Not just trying to get you out of Pain Mgmt. due to the Medicare and Lack of Other Dr's on This island. they will NOT tell you if this "Steroid- Therapy is treatment is even Suggested for Your problem and Ignores Prior Pain Management History. Do a Search online Before asking your PCP for a referral to a Pain Mgmt. Clinic. He Should really be working with a SPorts Med or Osteopath Dr.. Not calling his clinic or practice "pain Managemnt", but "Steroid Treatments for All Patients". I am a Paraplegic from waist down, so Steroids are Not going to get Nerves to Regenerate. His Motto Should Read "Steroid treatment is the new Black"
