A truly caring doctor

It's almost impossible to find a pain doctor in our area. After a wait for a referral was seen at this office and was pleasantly surprised. They are very selective about patients. The wait was brief and after an intake history and physical I was treated with kindness and understanding. They charge less than any other pain clinic in the area.

still waiting

Previous Doctor referred father to pain clinic this doctor works at has been over 8 months and they still have not got him an appointment or contacted us. My father has spinal stinosis and is in pain all the time. has been on his medication for 18 years and this doctor doesnt seem to be in a hurry to help someone with back bone decentigration. I dont think its right that a person should get cut off his medication. Before a pain clinic can make an appointment in 9 months and still counting. There is no other option for my father then pain management. If doctor ignatioutous could not make him any better surgically, He is not going to get any better only worse. But guess people only worry about making money they dont worry about truly helping people.
