When it comes to finding a qualified pain management physician to help relieve your chronic pain, one of the best places to begin your research is patient reviews.
Hearing from people who share personal experiences of visits with their pain clinic or doctor is a great way to get an accurate and unbiased assessment of services the physician provides.
Any promotional advertisement will tout a pain provider as the most qualified, most attentive and most likely to offer better care than any other providers in your area. But there’s no way to know whether they really ‘walk their talk’, unless you can get feedback from those who have personally consulted with them in the past.
When real-life patients take time to post on social media or online review sites, it typically means they felt strongly about their chronic pain treatment experience, whether it was good or bad. Many people never bother to post reviews at all, so those who do are more likely to have something they feel is important to say. For instance:
- When a patient has a bad experience with their pain management physician, they often turn to review sites as an outlet for their frustration, particularly if their provider fails to properly address any expressed complaints or concerns. Many patients post negative comments in order to prevent others from falling into the same bad situation they encountered.
- When a patient has a good experience, they don’t necessarily bother to post on review sites to tell the world about it. But if they feel their provider went above and beyond to address their chronic pain management needs, they’re often compelled to share such an extraordinary resource with others, and happy to boost business for the pain physician in the process.
In short, check for reviews about any pain management provider before you schedule an appointment with them… it’s a sure-fire way to get a sneak peek at what you’re getting into before you book your consultation.

- "This is the best pain relief center I’ve ever been to. I have a debilitating disorder. And the level of compassion these doctors have is over the top. Well most people can’t even pronounce the disease that I have, these guys are surprisingly and refreshingly knowledgeable about it. They don’t mess around and I never worried they are going to go out of business for being a pill mill. If I wanted a pill mill I’d go someplace else. These are top notch doctors who want to help you live the best life you can while you’re on this earth. I love Dr. Piszel, Anthony, Pearl, and the others. They each hold themselves to a high standard. Easy to get appointments. Compassionate. On time. I wish all of my doctors were as fantastic as these are. I thank God for them."

- I see Dr. Jose Rivera at the Tampa Pain Relief Center. He and his staff are very caring, helpful and persistent when it comes to my chronic pain! They listen and take what you have to say very seriously. I highly recommend Dr. Rivera and the Florida/Tampa/Brandon Pain Relief Centers if you want your pain mitigated.”
