Review: New Jersey Sport & Spine

NJ Sport & Spine were totally dishonest with me -they offered unrealistic cures for a back condition which is incurable made incredible promises which they knew could never be attained: not by them, not by any doctor in the entire world.
They billed me - and Medicare - more than $4k for a barbarous - and totally worthless - injection procedure. I am considering a law suit!
NO my pain can NOT be completely relieved! No the nerve damage which has caused problems from impotence to falling down and will cause future problems from incontinence to possible paralysis of my legs can NOT be solved with any therapy known to medical science today and NJSS claims to the contrary are a grave breach of ethics, maybe even illegal.
They are money-hungry; they will 'sell' you on whatever puts cash in their pockets - they don't care if you are helped at all.
In spite of their OBVIOUS failure, NJ Sport & Spine 'doctors' have no remorse or ethics. There was never any apology even after being informed they were FIRED for total incompetence. There was NEVER any offer of any pain relief of any kind they forced ME to go BUY relief from an ER doctor who knows what hes doing.
They are clueless and uncaring - the last place in the world any back-pain patient wants to be. Avoid them - save your money and save yourself from pain.
Like those with spinal injuries, spinal disorders MS, and other patients with DDD, I face a bleak future of PAIN, and eventual bowel/bladder incontinence; (Im already impotent from nerve damage); loss of sensation in my legs; even more frequent falls; maybe eventual total loss of the use of my legs from nerve damage. There is NO procedure/therapy/surgery which ANYONE can do which will halt this progression and certainly not reverse it

Dr. Gutkin is the BEST Dr. I've met yet! I've been to what I thought was the best pain mgt dr, but he moved his office too far away, so I looked for a local expecting a dud. Let me tell you...He (and his staff) we kind, courteous, caring, GREAT sense of humor (that is very important to me. I crack jokes constantly). So far I've had 2 thoracic epidural injections. The 1st one gave me unbelievable relief. I've been trying to get rid of this pain for 6 LONG yrs. 1st injection I'm 60% better. This 2nd one should make it 90-100%. I love NJ Sport & Spine and HIGHLY recommend to anyone that wants a fantastic Dr that listens to YOU. Not what they want to do, he asked me what area I wanted to work on first. No other Dr. has done that. It's always been what they want to do first and dismiss the rest. Dr. Gutkin is by far the BEST ever dr.

Don't know why my last post says Keyport, NJ. I'm from Hopatcong, NJ. But what I wrote is 100% true. Dr. Gutkin is the BEST BEST BEST ever.!!!!!!

It says Keyport because that is where your Internet server is from. I'm not from Picatinny Arsenal and live nearly a half hour away. Just thought I would let you know. Someone had to explain that to me also, so you're not alone.

I feel sorry for the negative poster and its sounds like they were looking fir drugs quite frankly the comment about the ER tipped me off to the fact that they wanted drugs, which I don't understand as I've never found NJSS to be stingy with that. If you need them, you get them. Part of healing is mental so doctors need you to believe their therapy will work. That being said I was never promised a cure just an accurate portrayal of What to expect and the possible outcome. They always start with the easiest things and move on if they don't work. I wound up having two surgeries but that was after trying a number of other procedures. Sadly they didn't work for me but I eventually got a reduction in my pain. Sadly I am having issues of another kind and will be visiting them again.

They used to have hot front office staff. That helped me pain.
