I saw Dr. Chen at the Rex Pain Management Center upon recommendation of a friend. I was not disappointed. She was not only professional, but kind and compassionate. I had 2 procedures with her and felt very comfortable. She has a very gentle touch and I felt she was very competent. I was able to talk with her about my condition without feeling rushed. Although I eventually had to have surgery she was able to get my pain under more control. She really is my hero! I would recommend her to anyone.
I have seen a lot of doctors over the last 30 years for chronic pain. I have not hesitated to change doctors until I find a doctor that helps me. Dr. Choudry is the best pain specialist I have seen in all those years. I do not want to encourage too many patients to see Dr. Choudry in case I have problems getting an appointment with him due to a lot of new patients. He spends time discussing my options and is very up to date on the current best solutions. He also practices pain management that avoids a lot of extra pain. My last epidural with him was by far the least painful I have ever had. It is obvious that he cares about his patients quite a bit and tries to make any treatment as painless as possible. I just do not want him to get so busy that I have problems making an appointment!!
I often see NP Brookie Wood when I need an appointment and Dr. Choudry is busy. Brookie is always up to date on my treatments and she takes her time discussing my treatment. She is very professional and also very caring about my pain issues. She works closely with Dr. Choudry and I am very comfortable seeing her. She goes out of her way to make our time together productive and if there are any issues she addresses them immediately. She understands the issues with pain prescriptions and will work to make the best out of the current regulations.
Very good practice and physicians. The course of treatment did wonders.
I have seen a lot of doctors in the past 7 years, as well as pain management. First time I saw Dr. Shehzad Choudry I felt very cared. Dr. Choudry listened carefully to my concerns and made his recommendation. I felt I could trust him immediately with anything he would do. I drive more than 300 miles round trip to see him, and every mile is all worth it! I am still under his care as he is still treating my pain, and I know I can trust his judgment. Thank you Dr. Choudry for being who you are. The staff has been wonderful and always available to accommodate and help you in any way. I usually don't leave reviews, but I would definitely recommend this practice to anybody is dealing with pain. As somebody else already said... I am a person here and not a number! THANK YOU!
Dr. Yelle ) was WONDERFUL in easing my severe pain from an inflamed left sacroiliac. He used a florascope in a procedure to pinpoint my problem and injected medication that eased much of my pain. I was scheduled to have the procedure a month later, but Dr. Yelle found an opening the very next day after my initial appointment, and fit me in at the closest hospital possible!. My husband and I completely appreciate his honesty and forthrightness. We both feel, as the review below says, that we could easily relate to Dr. Yelle - thank you for all your help!
Thank you so much for all your help and friendliness - happy anniversary!!!
With much appreciation to - and for - ALL of you,
I've been to doctors all my life and Dr. Yelle is the first one that I relate to. He is the first one that is actually listening to me. He is the first one that's actually done something for me. He is actually listening, he doesn't give me the bum's rush and he has empathy. I walk in to the office and I am comfortable. The entire staff is very congenial. I am a person here and not a number.
I have been a patient of Dr. Shrimanker for 12 years now. Twenty years ago I had a really bad fall. I fell ten feet off of our deck and landed on my head on the concrete patio below. I was wearing a pair of bifocal glasses and the glasses made the step appear wider than it actually was, so I totally missed the top step. When I landed on my head, my whole body crunched down on top of me. So several of the discs in my neck were crunched together. I spent the next eight years in agonizing pain. I went through neck surgery and physical therapy for 3 times a week for eight years. I was left with horrific headaches. I saw doctor after doctor and each time they prescribed muscle relaxers and migraine medications but nothing worked. Then I was blessed to meet Dr. Shrimanker. They did different tests to try to locate the source of my headaches and they traced the pain to the occipital nerves in the back of my head. Dr. Shrimanker explained what that meant and also how he could treat it. Until then I could hardly function in doing anything. The pain was unbearable. So for the last twelve years, I have been having occipital nerve blocks and cryoablation in the back of my head. Dr. Shrimanker wrote letters every time I needed a treatment to my insurance company explaining why these treatments were necessary. Dr. Shrimanker is very kind, helpful and makes it his mission to treat patients with chronic pain. I will forever be grateful and thankful for the care I have received from Dr. Shrimanker. He is an amazing doctor.
I started going to Carolina Pain and Spine for back problems that I have had my entire life. I had tried for over thirty years and countless doctors to find relief for my back pain. I was given many different diagnosis from pulled muscles to a figment of my imagination, but Dr. Lam found the problem in my lower spine and gave me the treatment that I had needed for so many years. Now I'm pain free and able to enjoy life.
I have been a patient of Carolina Pain & Spine for several years They have been wonderful for my health and well being. They have worked so diligently with me and I feel like they have given me my life back. I am so thankful for them.
