Do not go to this "pain management" if you are in need of a real pain doctor. If you want to be put thru the money mill of injections that don't work,and or that makes pain worse, then by all means,go. This practice, is not here to actually HELP anyone. It's about nothing more than MONEY

I had 2 visits with Dr. Carl Frosina and felt like I was just hearing my own self talking. He was not friendly nor did he remember anything we talked about from my first visit. I had to ask him about my MRI. To which he asked, "did you have an MRI?" He also forgot the meds I was taking and I had to list them again. He told me to stop taking one drug that he had told me to continue to take on the first visit. Wasted trip.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Russell, he actually listened to me and what my issues where, and he offered every service I needed in one location!!! from top notch care to dry needling my muscle tissue!!!! as an athlete he really took the time to work on my actual structure to prevent further issues that could arise later in my lifting career , Dr. Russell being an avid bodybuilder knows the human body and biomechanics for a fast and effective program... trust me this is a one stop shop for all your needs!!!!
I WAS PHYSICALLY INJURED BY A DOCTOR AT THE PAIN CLINICI AM A VICTIM OF ABUSE SEVERE. HE SAID ALL SEXUALLY ABUSED ARE CRAZY AND I NEEDED A DOCTOR WHO TREATS CRAZY PEOPLE.I WAS CARETAKER OF MY QUAD BROTHER FOR 18 YEARS. CARETAKER OF MY HANDICAPPED NEICE 4 YEARSCRAZY CANNOT DO THIS. I HAVE NNEVER OVERDONE A PILL AS MY SHRINK , WHO, I USE DUE TO ABUSE. he took my leg and jammed it into my hip, and, either broke something or whatever. IT IS sCREAMING PAIN, AND, YOU CANNOT MOVE WHEN IT HAPPENS. He would not allow me to see their therapist again, as I SAW him right after my son died.He wanted so to make me a liar. I know they heard me screaming and begging in the office, but, no one came to help me sOMEONE MUST HELP E AS IT IS GETTING WORSE. NEVER HAPPENED UNTIL THAT DAY
Ive had lower back pain and nerve pain that at times radiated all the way down my leg. It got to the point that i had to retire after 32 years in the coal mines this year at the age of 53 on disability. Dr Chhabra and John Hartselle P.A. have always tried any way possible to get me the most relief they can. All the staff are excellent, professional and kind and go out of their way to help you from the front desk all the way back.If I called them tomorrow they would get me in as fast as they could to get me the help I need. I feel they have always tried their best and even went above and beyond to help me. I wouldnt go anywhere else.Victor Argo Bessemer,Al.
I've been going to Southside Pain since Dr. Goyne moved her practice there. I was not happy till my last visit when I was seen by Dr. Kendrick. My son and I were both happy. We like this Dr very much. He offered an alternative treatment for me and said if we agreed to ask through the Patient Portal. The problem is I can't get into the Portal and I've tried calling but get cut off before I can leave a message. I'm very interested in this other procedure. I wish they would call me back.
I HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH WITH JOHN HARTSELLI had a very bad experience with John C.Hartshell PC-C, I have been going there about 15 years but i had no problems untill Mr.Hartshell started seeing me.Everytime i saw him for a checkup he did'nt examined me & he was alwaya rude to me.OK the last time i saw him was 7 -22-15 he came in the roim with an attitude & he wanted to take me off of my methadone which i have been on for 15 years and put me on a Painpatch which i had already been on before by another M.D.before i started going to Birmingham Pain Center.Irefuse the painpatch because like i said i already done tryed them and it did'nt help but he always refuse to listen to me and he acted like my feeling & pain did'nt matter to him.So he went out of the room and i left.I never had any problems with the rest of the Doctors,Dr.T.Gossman has been always caring,understanding,nice,concern & very helpful.I don't know WHY this one man-John C.HARTSHELL has such a bad feeling towards me but he has been everything but nice to me.Am just a patient in pain and l needed his help!!! Nobody should'nt be treated that way!! Drs. supposed to be caring BUT NOT John C. HARTSHELL.He makes me don't want to live.WHAt have i done,AM 67 years old and God help me,just don't understand how this Dr. Can be so MEAN TO ME, Amen
Dr. Hartsell you are a liar & a a coward , for you to give me one treatment plan & then send another to the pharmacy and then make it not a big deal when I call you about it is heartless and unsympathetic. I did express to you that I woul like to be released slowly due the medication I was on, but you only response was " isn't she interested in going to another facility, even though I had expressed to you that I was worried about my blood pressure becoming an issue due to the pain, and then after me callin daily for a week feeling as if am a junky, you tell me that I can change out my OxyContin by coming by the office to get the correct dosage on a Thursday( like I had them with me), so I want to thank you for ignoring me and throwing me off to your assistant instead of fixing your mess up and because of you I am miserable and don't have allot of trust in doctors at this point.
I have chronic migraines as well as fibromyalgia. I don't know what I would do without their care. All the doctors are wonderful very caring and actually listen to me and care about your pain. I have felt that other doctors feel I am just a drug attic trying to get some meds. That's not true I have a lot of pain but with the medication and the procedures . I can live and in less pain. And do almost everything everyone else does every day and takes for granted. They are a fantastic Group of caring people that I thank God for.
Dhttp://southsidepainspecialists.com/news.phpr.Ashlee Fulmer,she is not a good doctor. I was on four morphine pills a day. I wanted a lower does. Instead she gives me a fentanyl patch. Which is a hundred times stronger. I told her is that going to help me. She said of course. Well I go to the pharmacy and get them, which was a four hundred dollor patch. I only got four of them. Which was fine cause I just wanted to get better. I put the patch on, and left it on for six hours. So I called her and told her that, I'm allergic to it. She said she couldn't do nothing. I asked her could she just lower my does of morphine, until I see her again and we can figure this out. She must of been busy or something and told me to take Tylenol and ibuprofen. I ended up in the psychiatric hospital. She has harmed my body and she also has put me in a lot of danger. I just need help. No will is helping me. I do not know what to do. Dr. Ashlee Filmed has made me in danger cause, I've been off my medicine. Cold turkey. A doctor can not do that. They just can't take you off anything cold turkey. They at least have to lower your does till you come off of it. So now she said she would not see me any more cause I went to the psychiatric hospital, that she did this to me. I need help. So.done please. Dr. Ashlee Fulmer is not a good doctor. She should know all this. My life is in harm and danger.
