Went in for a procedure to identify the nerve that is causing my residual limb significant pain. Honestly I’ve been told by many amputees and Doctor Gutierrez that nerve pain is a common malady after amputation surgery.On top of that I have Buergers Disease. Basically I’m going to be in pain forever! Maybe? LOL! Anyway, I’ve been coming to Dr G for over 5 years and I was sold after he installed a DRG in my back! That did not wind up working but I went ahead knowing that we may not get the desired outcome. I don’t care because he tries everything he can outside of taking pain pills. And Kaycee my PA who sees me all throughout the year is the one who gets the ball rolling on all these procedures as well as recommending procedures that could be therapeutic or helpful in alleviating pain. If Dr.G is Austin’s Top Doc for 2023 then Kaycee ought to be Austin’s Top PA for 2023! I was not paid to say these things either! LOL! I just think they’re the best team I’ve ever worked with.
Pain Specialist of America takes great care of my needs. Although Dr. Frederick performs my procedures when I need them, his PA Angela see me for my appointments. She is very thorough, spends time with me, answers all my questions, addresses all my concerns, and truly is compassionate and invested in her patients. The only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars is the location is in Austin, Texas and I'm in New Braunfels, Texas. The drive, regardless of the time of day, is full of traffic and difficult to make it on time to appointments, unless I leave atleast 40 minutes earlier than I really need to. Other than travel time, I still refuse to look for a closer Pain Management location because they take great care of all my needs- back, neck, proper medication, and procedures which actually work to elieviate pain.
My experience at Pain Specialist was very smooth with reminders from the office to be there on time and what to expect next day. When I arrived I was served immediately and with 5 min I was called for preparation for my procedure. Dr. Frederick was pleasant and was quick but smooth and prepared me in advance for the shot. My fear quickly went away and my pain has subsided and I'm comfortable again. Thanks Pain Centers for a smooth experience. MEP
I have always had a positive experience with Pain Specialists of America. I have had some pretty serious issues with newly diagnosed autoimmune diseases and they have really put my mind at ease. I’ve also recommended two friends that love Kaycee Frederick as well.
Can't really tell you much because I haven't had the appointment yet BUT I will tell you that when I make an appointment to see the doctor... I want to see the doctor - not a PA or nurse. If I had arrived and the doctor was not available I would have left.
Angela has been my provider for years and she always has my best interests at heart. The support staff is friendly, helpful, and responsive. I've recently moved, but will continue to see Angela despite the six hour round trip drive. I highly recommend PSA.
My appointment was made through the call center so it was not made where I would go on James Casey. I was surprised they took me in when I arrived. I want to thank all the office staff and Dr Ashley for seeing me on the spot. Not only did they get me in that same day they set me up for a procedure the next day. I’m very pleased with the great service and recommend them. Thank you so much for helping me this week, I greatly appreciate all you have done for me.
Dr Fredrick is amazing I’ve been his patient the better part of 3 years. Unlike any other provider & though he is only my pain doctor he is the only doctor I can tell exactly how and where my pain is. I can tell him what is wrong and why it’s bothering me. His bedside manner is so warm and kind.I really appreciate him.
As my first visit I was appreciative for the attention given me. Usually conventional methods of treating a patient requires physical examination of sought, however when dealing with body pain, treatment has to be indivualized and that take time. Staff was professional and friendly, attentive and meticulous. Thank you.
Dr. Mouch is my favorite doctor in my 3 years of treatment. He was able to make adjustments to my medication protocol that has really helped me get to a level where I can live with my back condition for the time being.He also gave me a great deal of hope in terms of my long-term treatment options.On top of all of this, Dr. Mouch is simply a really nice guy. Terrific interpersonal skills. He is my doctor!
Dr Gutierrez is really good at listening to my issues and getting stuff done. The wait time is long but once I get to see him he is very forthcoming with injections, referrals or whatever else brings relief. He doesnt make you come back before you get anything. Once when my health ins was changing he fast tracked some injections to beat the deadline.
Despite being super busy with a lot of extra patients that day, Dr. Fox was still very caring and attentive. She fixed my problem in a timely manner. She is a great pain doctor who genuinely cares.Also, the front staff was amazing. Fixed an insurance issue I ran into. Thank you so much!!
Dr.B and his staff are the best far ever. The day of my procedure at the surgery center they made me feelvery comfortable. When it was time for my injections I was so nervous. Everyone took good care of me. ?Angela Ash, really cares and listen and staff is very professional and friendly. I recommend anyone here.You guys are wonderful thank you.
I have had neck pain for 4 years now and Dr Fox has been wonderful. She actively listens to you and works with you to make a plan to do what you want to do. She has changed locations but except for trying to find her again, I have no complaints. I recommend her to anyone that needs help with their pain. When I was referred to her I could not lay flat, tilted my head and was in constant pain. This past December I got another injection because the meds and neck stretcher were not cutting it. I was a little apprehensive doing it in the office because I know getting the needle up my spine and to the proper location is tricky. She did a beautiful job and the next day I spent the next 36 hours in a hospital with my husband and I did not have to worry about needing pain meds or laying down.I have never had any problems with the staff. They have always been professional and friendly. There were some problems with my insurance since she moved and they took care of everything for me. I have not had problems with testing or refilling my medsAs a matter of fact when I had to get a new MRI, my insurance company suggested another company that was cheaper and they faxed them the orders I got it scheduled an hour later
I followed Dr.Fox from another location because of my great experience with her as a physician. My first injection lasted so much longer than I expected. My second injection was this past week. Wonderful result. Dr. Fox’s knowledge gives me a great deal of hope and my condition is improving. Thank you, Dr. Fox! Melissa
