Dr. G, Maheen and the rest of the staff are absolutely amazing. They listen and understand that although the office is a delight, no one truly wants to be there (in pain). I believe in Dr G and Maheen and know they have my best interests at heart.
I do know That if it was not for Dr.BENGTSON,I would have been dead. You see I went to him for my 6 mouth shot in my back when he realized that he couldn't put me to sleep that my heart was not strong enough. He stopped the the Procedure. Thank God he stopped and save my life. I don't care what DR. I have I will always go to my pain doctor no matter where he may be OK.
For some reason my profile has my husbands name but I just wanted to share my experience with Central Texas Pain Center or Pain Center of America if the name changed. My Dr is Genaro Gutierrez and I also see the wonderful most sweetest angel Kaycee Frederick. My life was normal until I was involved in a car accident where a man was texting and driving his wife. My life changed that instant as all I was doing was to pick my children up from School and do my mommy duties. I used to be so active and loved playing sports and that all changed that moment. Since then (2015) my life is not the same. I’m so glad I made the right choice by seeking help from this facility. Thanks to them I’m able to have a normal life. I also suffer from migraines that started when I was a teenager and suffered all my life and thanks to Kaycee that suggested migraine medication I’m now able to perform my activities and not have to be in bed the entire day or 2 and be suffering. Kaycee nailed it and after my accident I would only be able to walk for a short distance and then would start to hunch over and not move at all. I’ve come a long way with therapies and yoga classes and increasing my exercises and all thanks to my pain being managed by the best. I truly don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have this team available to me. These past days I’ve come to see how much they truly care about their patients and how much sympathy they have. I feel like family and not like just another patient. I hope Kaycee comes back soon I’m so happy for her. I thought I would just take the time to thank everyone one and each of the angels in the team that I have there with Gutierrez being the leader of kindness and love. He is a very sophisticated Dr and is very smart and knows very well how to treat and cure his patients. I have so many plans ahead of me and can’t wait to see what the next years have for me. Thank you once again Dr Gutierrez and your team! Special thanks to Nikki Nurse, Flor that works in administration and I forgot the name of the other angel that assist Gutierrez. I just had surgery and they held my hand along the way and that meant the world to me. If you ever need that extra little help in life to be able to live a normal life if you have obstacles or challenges, this is the right place for you!!! Thank you Dr G!!!Linda Meza
I have been going to CTPC since moving here in 2018. I am extremely pleased with the care I have received from them and especially Kaycee Frederick who is the NP I see when I go in. She is probably the best and most attentive health care professional I have ever seen. She is always willing to discuss my problems in depth and is always looking for the best way to manage my pain. I cant say enough about how good she and the staff are at treating my pain. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of pain management!
Dr.Sarna was recommended to me by my long time primary care doctor to manage my areas of pain. After going to his clinic, I talked with him at length. He asked me some very important questions and I answered them. Before my appointment he checked my X-rays. He then discussed his plan that he recommended. Today he put the plan into effect. I would recommend him.
I had once tried to find a pain center near me, and found the folly in that. I begged to come back as a patient, because I didn't have the expectation to receive the kind of care I get from CTPC. I love Dr. Gutierrez and his staff there, whom I've come to know through the years. I WON'T go anywhere else; I am blessed by this team!
Dr. Guitierrez has single-handedly given me my life back. He treats his patients the way - I believe - he would treat his family. His treatment plan is to eradicate pain, and I’m certain that he treats all of his patients that was. He is kind, friendly, patient, professional, and beyond deserving of 10 stars. His staff is lovely. They are efficient, proficient, and very friendly. I’m beyond blessed to have found him and am eternally grateful for all he has done for me, and my family.
Dr. Guiterrez has the best bedside manner ever, very caring and compassionate. Dr G always takes his time with you and is very through. He has helped me with my chronic pain immensely. Thank you and the staff for all you do, especially getting me in ASAP if I'm hurting.
I have to give 5 stars because less wouldn’t be fair. Dr G is an exceptional surgeon, face-to-face human physician and as proactive as they come. The staff is great but I’m not seeing the regular people who have treated me so well and hopefully the new ones get used to my grumpy old self. When you let Leslie Escalante get away, a bad mistake was made and I miss her greatly. A real gem and a consummate professional.I know that ignorant politicians have no right to decide or legislate my pain and I hope that Texas can progress to the 21st century as far as the proven pain benefits of cannabis therapy as many states have already done. It’s gonna come and hopefully soon. Meanwhile we have to give “specimens” and be treated like criminals. (Mic dropped)
I know there’s going to come a day when I have to stop taking pain meds and I’m going to be upset but I can’t wait for that day. Because that day means I can live a normal life.I’ve had two surgeries since becoming contracted with CTPC. This last one I had (spinal fusion) on Oct 9, 2020 has caused me so much nerve pain on my left side that it’s hard to even function. I kid you not, I messaged Dr. Gutierrez everyday begging for pain relief the past week and he’s done all he can to help. I couldn’t thank him enough. He’s done all he could for me. He’s looked deeply into my MRI’s and have sat and discussed possible ways to help me.Unfortunately I HAD to get the spinal fusion. There was no other option. Mind you I’m 27 and this was scary for me. But Dr. Gutierrez was great at reassuring me and making me feel okay.I don’t know why I’m in such pain but I meet with my surgeon next week and we will see what’s going on.This place is AMAZING! Stella and Dr. Gutierrez THANK YOU so much.-Shelby R
