I am in the healthcare industry and work with a lot of different pain doctors. When my partner hurt his back and couldn't get out of pain - Dr. V was the only person I would even consider taking him to. Sure enough - with a selective nerve injection - a 15 minute, non-invasive procedure (non-invasive procedure = no cuts in the skin at all - not to be confused with minimally invasive) he was able to walk out of the office, where he couldn't even get out of bed to use the restroom without tears (and he is a very tough man). Anyway, I wish more people knew he existed bc his training in trauma, cardiothoracic surgery, and anesthesiology are VERY unique. I've never seen anyone with a torn up L4, L5, and S1 recover that quickly. Against the doctors wishes, he was back in the gym a week later - that's how unbelievable this doctor is. So if you didn't know - there are options that don't involve surgery out there that actually work. Also- to comment on the other rating I saw on here with one star - pain clinics get a lot of drug seekers - and if you can't trust an anesthesiologist to identify one - I don't know who can. Plus i don't know who other than a disgruntled employee would write a review like that - I feel sad for anyone that wouldn't go to him. He is literally the best-kept secret for anyone in back or any joint pain and I hope anyone with pain tries seeing him before jumping into surgery!
Great staff, Julie who is one of the staff members has been amazing and very helpful and very professional at her job along with all their staff. I recommend going there because you will be treated as a real patient.
Bring a Snickers bar, you're gonna be there a while!As far as pain care......nothing yet, but I remain hopeful!
