Arrogant and Condescending

Dismissing your pain ,basically telling you you’re making things up until they see proof .Treating you like a drug seeker (I don’t do drugs , abuse pills , alcohol or even cigarettes) but they treat you like that’s why you’re there, poor bedside manner with Dr telling you, you must not be in pain because you’re too young , looking at MRI results from 4 years ago and saying oh ok I see why you’d be in pain ... so imagine now !

May 19th advised by PA, Dr Palencia and Pain Clinic will no longer accept California Workers Comp cases or patients. Advised to find another MD to continue medical care. No referral just no more care !

I came in with severe pain in upper back and now I am almost pain free. Dr. Palencia is a great doctor and his staff is top notch.

Good dr- office Hassles you like drug seeker. Go elsewhere if you can

This Dr is good, but the office treats you like a drug addict/drug seeker so getting your rx requires playing their game of random drug screens, both before apts and at rx pick up- calling 5 days ahead and waiting until 10 am when the office opens at 8am before rx is released. I am a patient with CRPS type 2 stage 4. This is not something you can "fake" and I feel tortured playing these games to get my meds. There are a few gals at the front desk that are sweet but everyone I've dealt with in the back office are brash and unprofessional. The way they take your vitals in a large hallway calling out numbers has got to be a HIPPA violation! Dr P has been pretty good about offering me help and care. It's not because of him ;but the way the practice makes normal people feel like drug seekers that I will look for a new pain management group. I'm going to talk to my primary care dr about their policies because he offered to do my meds. I think it would be way simpler.

Avoid this guy. During the procedure, kept making comments about things not going how he wanted. So after the procedure, I wanted to talk to him to ask what happened. He refused to talk to me. Saying he is a jerk, unprofessional, uncaring, completely forgot why he became a physician (people) would be an understatement. I can't urge you enough to find another physician to treat you.
