avoid at all costs, went for knee pain 2001, prescribed ton of meds without an exam, every time tolerance built up,just gave more meds, years of this, 2015 they started getting heat from DEA so they start slashing dosages so drastically I was in mild withdrawal for monthes didn't see a an MD for years always nurse practitioner/ MA. They called me for a pill count the day after mouth surgery I was unable to drive 45min to their office so they discharged me after 16+ years of being a 100% compliant patient, Then mailed a false discharge letter that made me out a drug addict so other pain Dr's wouldn't take me, all I did was complain about not seeing a real Dr. for YEARS, mean and vindictive, AVOID
Don't go here if I could give a neg review I would. I had been goin there since 2009 before they moved and ever since bressi was found guilty of being a perv that place has gone to hell. They can't keep staff every few months they run through nurse practitioners I don't even know any of them anymore but they act like everyone is a druggy. They knew I can not hold my urine and I only go every 2 hours. They would not let me go when I first got there for a urine test and expected me to wait 2 hours after my appt to go pee again. I think they wanted me to pee myself. I always would stay and wait the 2 hours after my appt but this last time was the last straw I just got off a double shift and had to go to my kids school and they did not care about anything u have to do in ur life like I have all day to sit there. This new staff sucks not like they will last long but I told them to shove their meds and I left. Don't waste your time here go somewhere else.
So far summit pain has been great to me. I have 1 ruptured disk and 4 herniated disks in my back and I slipped my groath plate as a kid and I had to have 2 hip surgeries. So now I have arthritis and bursitis in my hip. So many doctors no matter what just treat you like a drug addict,they don't care that you are in mass pain they just lump you together with everyone. Comprehensive pain management the guy was a jerk because my insurance wouldn't pay for the epiderals he treated me like crap and just said he isn't going to help me and I had to go get surgery. Summit pain has been very good, treated me like a human being the doctor said oh wow all those problems you must be in so much pain we are going to help you, and they did. Stupid drug addicts and people who sell the drugs mess things up for the people like me that are in legitimate pain.
I must admit that the staff at Summit Pain Management is not perfect but the majority of them seem to strive to be helpful at all times. I'm not pain free nor do I expect to ever be totally pain free but I would like to say that the care I receive there is of the highest standard. I understand that the Pain Center has a large patient count, (probably due to the good care), And the large numbers always slow the processes down. I am thankful that I found the pain center and have been a patient for more that 12 years now. Keep up the good work guys.
What a frustrating experience. Unfortunately It is a repeat of my December experience. The incompetent staff seems unable to call in the simplest of prescriptions. In December I did without medication for 10 days because 1 pompus young lady insisted that my medication had been called in already(It hadn't) Once again today I was told that my medication had been called in. (One out of four had) Later to be told they hadn't transmitted. Of course I was told they would be phoned in immeadiately...They weren't. I've called over 15 times in the past 2hours. To be told this mailbox is full or get voice mail after voice mail. I hope getting disconnected was an accident. I actually found this review because I was looking for a new pain specialist. If your in pain and already frustrated don't go here. While the doctor's OK the refill process is excruciating. If this was the first time I would not be so upset but it is far from the first. While Marci was handling my refills everything was great. THANK YOU MARCI
