Love the doctor's but the staff, Christy in particular, needs a lesson in manners and how to treat patients. We are there because we are sick. Her lack of patience with people in combination with her resting face have a lot to be desired

impressed with this pain center

I am very impressed with this pain center and I highly recommend them. The office staff is amazing and always work to accommodate me into the schedule. I came to inquire about getting Botox shots for chronic pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back. I returned to receive these shots and they helped tremendously. Several weeks later after falling in my home I came in for a trigger point shots in my neck. The office staff squeezed me in as the last patient of the day. I was running late and the doctor could not have been any nicer.
