Don't waste your time and money with Dr Fish Radio Frequency Nerve Burn

Don't waste your time and money to see Dr Fish. I should have paid more attention to the bad reviews. Poor bed side manners, only interested in injection and RFNB, both are very painful. Sticking a needle directly into each nerve is painful enough, then the burning and pain increases when inject Novocain into each nerve. RFNB, burning nerves did not provide any relief, only aggravation. After I told Dr Fish I was not happy with the results, he could not get me out of his office fast enough. His referral was on a piece of paper without his letterhead, no diagnoses face to face. Poor, poor experience.

Rude and arrogant Doctor

Didn't even look at my MRI. Had his hand on the exam room door before I could even ask one question. Recommended an SI injection. When I asked why he said that's his job and left. Rudest and most arrogant doc I have ever seen.
