I went to Dr.Savu with a neck problem. The treatment helped alot. Very expensive. Doctor and staff very professional and seem to know what was needed.

I found Dr Savu's predecessor Dr Hackbarth to be more compassionate.

Having the attitude that yoga is "crap" may have been the problem...the idea is learning to manage the pain naturally and not rely on medications. Just a thought.

I went to Dr. Gera because I heard Dr. Savu curses his patients and has a attitude with them. I was sooooooo pleased with Dr Gera and his staff. He fixed me up and it has been over 2 yrs and I am still pain free. To me Dr.Gera can't be beat!!! Give him a try. So many people have told me how he has helped them.

I'm needing a pain management doctor for some chronic pain I'm having. Anyone have any input as to who might be the best around here? It would be nice to have a doctor who'd compassionate but that can be hard to find.
Thanks!

They have doctors just for Arthritis who are very helpful. They can give her drugs that will keep her from needing so many of the pain meds.

No, not looking for a pain med doctor. I have a family and job to tend to and have no interest in being doped up all the time. I'd like to see a pain control doctor who can actually help me with my almost constant pain. Through whatever measures are necessary whether it be biofeedback, nerve blocks, or whatever it takes. But I want someone who is going to treat me like a human being and have some respect for me. I don't think that's too much to ask but I've heard about some doctors treating patients like crap. I don't want to waste my time on one like that.
Sorry about your grandmother.

I've been battling chronic pain from arthritis and have considered seeing a pain management doctor but it is not covered by my insurance. I would want to know what some alternative ways to fight pain without narcotics would be before I was out of pocket an expensive doctor visit. I definetly would not react well to being told to suck it up or to be cursed at. That is a breech of professional conduct and not the approach of a competent physician and, if that is indeed a factual comment about Dr. Savu, he would be one I could scratch off the list.

I went to Dr Savu three or four times. I have herniated disks in my cervical and lumbar spine.....and have severe pain from them.
I loved Dr Savu and found him to be very very very compassionate and kind. He actually babied me alot. I was very nervous and didn't 'put on' but I guess he could just tell that I was hurting and afraid and he couldn't have been nicer..........his staff were all great too. The injections did help for awhile, but they just didn't last for me, but my problems weree a little much to expect him to get rid of with shots.
I thought that he was awesome, and would highly recommend him. If I ever have a problem that I think he could help..........I will use him in a heartbeat. He is really 'that' nice.

It's interesting that there are opposite opinions of him. Some hate him and some love him.

oh and the 'yoga'........when I went it wasn't called that, it was an exercise 'core strenghthing' exercise. I didn't do it either, but I did not argue with him or tell him that I wasn't going to do it.........but when I ended up having to go to a neurosurgeon for surgery instead..........was told the same thing by the neuro. Savu knows what he is doing, one does need to strenghthen the muscles for certain things.
well my opinion

Dr Gera is the only one I would ever go to. Savu is only nice to the YOUNG pretty women. The way he treats his patients, I can only imagine how he treats his wife and son---and mother in law. I've just heard too many people say the same thing about his temper with patients---hey they are paying him, and he treats them that way and cusses them, I don't think so---NO THANKS Dr Savu---Dr Gera treats his patients with respect.

lol.......well, I am 45, so far from young..........and as bad as I hate to admit it, I'm sweet and all, but I'm not Miss America by any means. I could stand to loose 50 pounds at least. I can't compare him to Dr Gera, because I have never met Gera.........so, I certainly cannot say anything bad about him either. I just didn't have any reason to doctor shop after meeting Savu, because he treated me wonderful.
Not accusing or anything, but I am not a pain pill seeker........never have been. I can get all of the pain meds that I want due to my condition, so I sought a pain management doc out on my own, to keep from possibly getting addicted. So, I was not referred by another doc with a background of seeking..........this could have had something to do with how well I was treated. I cannot sit here and complain about one thing with him..........I went in wanting and begging for help and he was actually one of the most kind, compassionate docs that I have dealt with. I have heard from other people though that if you go to him and you start hinting, asking, begging, expecting a bunch of pain pills..........that you are not going to be happy. Don't know if that is true, but thats what I have heard and it makes sense to me. That's not what he is trying to do, he is trying to do procedures to prevent people from being on and getting addicted to pain medication. He is working for them to have a normal, productive life.
Ok, enough of that or I will sound like one of his employees, and I certainly am not........but I just hate to see him getting slammed, because in my opinion, he doesn't deserve it. Very nice, doc in my opinion.

Thanks for your opinion and for the others that have weighed in. I'm sure all pain management doctors get a lot of people seeking pain meds for both legitimate needs and just for addiction and I would imagine it is hard to sort out the two. I've hurt to the point where I would have begged for painkillers if it would have given me some instant relief but I want to explore safer and less-addictive alternatives. As with any chronic condition you develop a tollerance to a certain level and it requires a higher dosage to get the same relief. I am glad to see some of found some releif from these alternatives.
