Excellent!

August 30, 2018

this was my first visit to this practice. I got an appt a week ago so that was great. they never requested any tests or previous treatments...I thought that was odd. I felt like tge dr. was very warm & friendly. However, it seemed like my situation was like everyone else's....he didn't ask me any questions about specifics to my history. I liked him but I felt like I was a number.

When I first came to see Dr.Wasan and his team approximately 3 years ago I was ready to give up on life. That also included me giving up on wife and three children. These people are my world. However I was so depressed because of the constant pain I was in I just didn't care anymore. I had seen my regular health care professional for years and honestly thought that was all any doctor could do for me. Long story short. After I'd say three visits with Dr.Wasan my life changed 1000% for the better. He completely earned my trust, which is almost impossible to do, and I'm happy to report that 3 short years later I couldn't be happier with my life. Both Professionally and personally. My marriage couldn't be better. My kids are growing up to be wonderful adults. I'm doing better at my job now than I had done for ten years previous to my first visit. Life is finally good. I realize it cant all be attributed to one person but I can tell you that without a doubt his good care and his making me feel good about myself had a huge roll in just steering me in the right direction for success. I cant thank Dr.Wasan and his staff enough. I hope everyone has the same great experience I have had with them.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr. Wasan and ALL of his Staff. Especially Carole - she's so responsive if I ever have to call outside of my visits. I always get a call back and a follow up call if necessary. She's so pleasant and never makes me feel like I am causing her a hassle. They are so caring, proactive and they seem to truly want you to have a better overall qualify of life. Dr. Wasan really respects my choice to avoid all true opiates and works with me to find options to avoid that. He cares...and that's important.

Dr Wasan and his nurse staff are awesome so glad I found them to help me.

Dr Wasan is an excellent doctor....He comes in and talks to you and asks how bad your pain is and then explains to you how he will treat it....I would not want any other pain management doctor...

They were very attentive to me. Extremely knowledgeable, deliberate and thorough. They spent as much time as necessary with me. Very professional.

The doctor explained the procedure and explained what he was doing during the procedure, which helped me feel more calm.
