Have you seen Dr. Scott Stengel?
July 1st, 2016Quick and long-laslting pain relief
I have experienced excruciating sciatica and other lower back pain at intervals for years. Dr. Stengel has been able to eliminate the pain very quickly, usually with a single visit for an injection in or near the affected spinal nerves. The relief is almost miraculous. I am then pain- free for many months, or a year, without needing so much as a Tylenol. He does not advise a long series of treatments or consultations. He simply locates the pain, visualizes the area, injects it and I go home immensely relieved. In my view, that is the ideal way to treat back pain, simple, quick, and long-lasting. His Columbia University credentials are most impressive and his long, clinical experience contributes to his great skill.

AFTER READING A REVIEW WRITTEN TODAY, I ALSO WANTED TO SAY THAT I TOO HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH DR. STENGEL'S OFFICE. VERY INVITING STAFF, DR. WAS VERY PLEASANT, EXPLAINED EVERYTHING & ANSWERED ALL QUESTIONS!! I DID NOT FEEL RUSHED AT ALL!! I GOT MY INJECTION THE FOLLOWING DAY & AGAIN HAD A GOOD EXPERIENCE & PAIN FREE!!!! I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS OFFICE FROM BEGINNING TO END!! THANK YOU DR. STENGEL FOR GIVING MY LIFE BACK!!!
March 25th, 2015Great Doctor/Great Staff
While I am the first to tell you, I never really have any feelings one way or another about the physicians or businesses I encounter. I have had a very pleasant experience at this office. The staff is very outgoing and not stuffy like in some offices that slam a window in your face. The doctor always explains what he's doing during the procedure. And although there is no guarantee that the treatments will help (as with all medical procedures), I was very fortunate to have gotten great pain relief from the epidurals I received. Overall wonderful experience.

Dr Stengel is a wonderful doctor. He will LISTEN and spend time with you. I have been seeing him for nine years and I never fail to get relief from my pain. He makes the injections almost painless and tells you everything he is doing. I have recommended him to several people, and will continue to do so. I personally would not want anyone else to treat my pain.

June 29th, 2012What was wrong with Dr. Stengel
I went to Dr Stengel for years and felt he was good because he helped my pain and serviced my morphine pump. Everthing seemed to be good until there was a problem with a growth in my spine at the end of the morphine lead. It was discovered and the pump needed to be removed. I have now discovered that Dr. Stengel had given me a higher dose of morphine then he should have and that it is probably what caused the growth to begin with. He also reduced the morphine so quickly that I went into morphine withdrawl. He had made the comment that not everyone goes into withdrawal when he reduced it but my new doctor was not at all surprised that I went into withdrawl. In case you have never experienced this is involved, freezing, goose bumps, then fever and sweating, nausea, vomiting, loss of appitite, stomach pain, heart racing, feeling like there was a band around my chest and them feeling like there was a hard ball in the center of my chest. After three weeks of this I am finally over the worst but still on some morphine that my new doctor will reduce slowly. Until I discovered that the treatment I was getting from Dr. Stengel was causing me more problems than it was worth I liked him and even suggest some friends go to him. Now I wouldn't let him treat my dog.
October 13th, 2011Good Doctor
I was seen today by Dr. Stengal who fit me into his packed schdedule.I found him to be competent, cordial, and professional. He has a pleasant "bed side" manner and diagnosed my back problems with a suggestion on treatment. I did have to wait over an hour but that was only because he fit me into his schedule and I was told I may have to wait longer than usual. I do admit that after reading some of these reviews, I almost called and cancelled. I'm glad I didn't.
