After several lower lumbar injuries and treatments by other doctors I was refered to Dr. Phillips for treatment of acute pain in my legs, lower back and shoulders. His treatments and medications have lowerd the pain if not stopped it all together.I recommend Dr. Phillips with great pleasure and praise him for the pain relief he has given me.
My past experience indicates that Dr. Phillips and Dr. Berlin are great pain management doctors. From my experience this time, it is easier to get an appointment with the Pope than it is to schedule and appointment with one of these doctors. I called this past Monday and was told that since I had not been there since 2013 I had to have a referral in order to get an appointment. After going to my family doctor and referral was sent, I called and tried to schedule an appointment. The lady that answered the phone said I need to hang up and dial "2" since I was a new patient. When I called back that lady that answered the phone said that I did not need a referral and scheduled my appointment after having to put me on hold 2-3 time for computer problems. Luckily I was able to get an appointment for July 18th.
After unsuccessful treatments a nerosurgeon prescribed, I asked Dr Philips if he could take me as a patient. I am so thankful he said yes. Thorough and accurate is his reputation among the surgeons who refer patients to him. I must add one other important description...caring. He cared enough for me and the terrible pain I've been in for so long. He ordered MRI's on my complete back which my other doctors didn't do. He found the problems to my back pain and now I am on the path to recovery, He is the best in his field. His assistants, Erica and Paige are consciousness and professional. They are on top of my appointments and medications. Evererything is already done before I ask. Thank you so much Doctor Phillips for giving me hope of being pain free. Thank you to Pinnacle Pain for making me such a high priority!
I have been a patient od Dr. Phillips for 5 years. He is a great doctor who never gives up trying to find a solution for your pain. My solution finally came this year with the St Jude Spinal Cord Stimulater. I had given up, but Dr. Phillips and his staff kept their positive vibes coming my direction until he was finally able to insert the stimulater. The pain now is much, much reduced. If you have chronic pain, i don't think there is anyone better to help you out. He just never gives up.
Dr.Phillips has been my dr since 2011 and he has not given up on helping me to at least get rid of some of my pain. Im a difficult case. Thank you Dr.Phillips
