I had gone to Dr. Maksimov for years for lumbar nerve blocks as a way to help control pain from CRPS. He, and his staff, were amazing and really cared about my wellbeing and helping to find me pain relief without prescribing more pain drugs. My previous Dr had me way over medicated where all aspects of my life suffered. I'm so grateful to Dr. Maksimov for giving me my life back.
I again feel it necessary to write a review for Dr. Maksimov, as I have just seen him today. In addition to my severe pain in my knees & shoulders, I have developed a neurological condition for which he has gone above & beyond referring me to specialists & trying to help me find a diagnosis which no other MD has been able to help including a Neurologist. He has spent considerable time discussing all options available. Since the major issue of this condition is repeated falls, it is not something that can be ignored. He has been extremely patient and I have the utmost confidence in him. I would not be able to be optimistic if he wasn't in my corner. He has treated all my pain issues with every procedure available. Most of the negative comments seem to be about pain medication. The medication policy is clearly stated on the walls of every examination room. I have considerable knowledge regarding pain medication, having worked at UCSF in Neurosurgery and have seen patients literally rip out their surgical stitches to get an increase in medication. I am totally astounded by the negative comments about the the staff. They ALL have been extremely helpful, courteous, friendly and professional. I have to wonder about the patient's behavior that resulted in such disapproval.
While I like Dr. Oleg Maksimov, it is clear that there are personality and competence issues at Columbia Pain and Spine Institute. My only complaint about Dr. Maksimov is that he is resistant and overly cautious to making changes to my pain medications. Instead I am encouraged to tolerate the excess pain the medications don't control. Mixed response to that. He may have a point but misery is unacceptable as it defeats the point of taking any medication. There are some staff members who can be openly callous and abrasive. One I avoid on the reception staff and one in the administrative staff, but there could be more. The last thing I want to deal with at my doctor's appt. is someone being disrespectful or abrasive with me when I am already in pain. It is like jumping on someone's last nerve, not an exceptionally bright thing to do in this type of clinic. I know it is not just me, I have seen several other patients treated gruffly and callously while waiting in the lobby, many responding as a victim; unwilling or unable to defend themselves. Thus, my posting here. Without some intervention with the staffing issues, it will not be long before I trade a doctor I usually like for a whole new clinic where I don't have to tolerate attitude and offensive personality types, particularly from the reception staff or on the phone.
I began seeing Dr. Maksimov after his Predecessor (who I adored) left the practice. Dr. Maksimov, he has very kind and caring and has NEVER EVER made me feel like I was a waste of his time or treated me like a drug seeker (other Doctors/Nurse Practitioners have treated me like that). I see Brianne for my monthly visits and Dr. Maksimov every few months to keep him appraised of how I am doing and for injections. Dr Maksimov is one of the best doctors that I have ever seen and I am so very happy that I have him to oversee my medical issues. His bedside manner is completely professional, he explains what is going on and what he is doing. I would and have recommended Dr. Maksimov to anyone who is in need of his services.
