As far as Drs Gore and Overtone are concerned....they suck. They treat their patients like cattle. They fill up the waiting room with people who all have the same appt time and then expect you to sit there for hours. There primary method used to treat patients are by injections, which is a hit or miss. I have had some relief from the procedure that last several months and some not last more than a few days. Now this is where the problem occurs. They seem to be on the payroll of the company that manufactures LYRICA. At first I was prescribed LYRICA for nerve damage and the burning sensation that comes with it. It worked great. But during these periods in between procedures and the injections wear off and the pain returns, they want to throw more LYRICA at you for pain. It does absolutely nothing for pain. But according to them it cures mumps, measles, sinuitis, ingrown toe nails, and herpes. Baldness...no problem, sprinkle some on your head. Hemorrhoids...just shove a few up your ass...
I am a registered nurse and this is the most unprofessional practice I have ever encountered. The receptionist making the original appointment was not very friendly nor professional she had poor phone etiquette, but I made the appointment anyway. I arrived 10 minutes before my scheduled appointment which was 4:15pm. I filled out my paperwork and waited. After 30 minutes I went up to the receptionist and inquired about the wait time. She got up and looked in the hall and said there is one patient ahead of you. I sat back down and waited. They called two more patients back. At 5:00pm the entire front staff clocked out and left for the day. Nobody every apologized for the wait nor did they keep us informed about wait times (There were several patients still waiting with me.). At 5:15pm, one hour after my scheduled appointment, I walked-out! As a medical professional, I will never recommend this practice to any of my family, friends or patients.
Jennifer Drovie is a fantastic PA. I never mind coming for my appointments because she always acts with kindness and compassion. She gets me back in a timely manner and than patiently listens to whatever I have to say concerning my back pain. I feel like she tries whatever she can to help, and it is very much appreciated. Thanks Jennifer! Judy L.

The Doctors Dr. Herman Gore and Dr. E. Anthony Overton are Surgeons of the highest degree of competence. As their combined knowledge and skill is coupled with their consideration and passion for healing, the Patient is sure to find the prescribed remedy is the relief he or she was seeking. The Doctors operating at this office always encourage patients to take ownership of their treatment, as to become an active part of the path to recovery. Their teamwork with their Nursing Staff to serve Patients, and meet their respective needs is a excellent display of efficiency while always putting the patient first.
I highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking a referral from a Family Physician.

Upon entering the wait was considerable. But went back to speak with the doctor about pain associated with an automobile accident. The doctor understood the pain and asked that I be fitted for a back brace, electrical stimulation(tens unit) and spinal injections. I have never felt better. Thanks to all those at Carolina Spine for thier Hard work!!!
