I have seen Dr. Rapp several times. He is very knowledgeable and breaks down the issues and options for treatment in a manner that is easily understood. His office staff are awesome and from the materials on the wall and forms filled out at each appointment, it is apparent he is aware of the pain pill seeking epidemic. I have had several nerve burns done and I am prescribed just what is needed for each procedure. I would have issues recommending him to my friends and family!
He said my pain was not that bad and cut my medication that was helping down. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia/neuropathy as well as severe back pain due to nerve damage, I feel like killing myself from the pain most of the time but he seems to think that it is not painful at ALL and belittles your pain at every turn. He also had the nerve to say that I'm to young for pain management. Unfortunately my pain doesn't seem to care how old I am. This doctor will be responsible for a lot of suicides due to lack of knowledge/sympathy. I don't like how painkillers make me feel but unfortunately they are the ONLY thing that I can take for my pain that doesn't make me sick or that I have a reaction to. And that's the whole reason my family doctor sent me to him because she could not prescribe me the amount of painkillers I need to lead a normal life, and sadly she was giving me more than this supposed pain doctor is/was.
So far the staff is friendly and helpful ..I look forward to an appointment with Dr. Rapp...
Dr. Rapp saw me the first week I called. He explained what he could do for my shoulder and back pain. The injection didn't hurt and the pain went away In a few days. If I need help again, I'll see Dr. Rapp. I think you'd like him.
Dr. Rapp & entire staff were great - very courteous & considerate. I would definitely recommend.
I could not move, stand up or sit up I was in such agony until Dr. Rapp treated my pain.
Great Doctor and great staff!
