The Florida Pain Relief Group Story
We all have a story to share. And we are proud to share ours! The journey of where we come from tells us about who we are today and who we want to be tomorrow.
For Florida Pain Relief Group, our journey began with Dr. Rodolfo Gari MD MBA, an expert both in medicine and business. Having treated patients for more than 25 years, Dr. Gari is all too familiar with the paper-pushing and data-crunching that prevented him from using his time to do what he loved most: caring for his patients. We all know there are too few hours in the day as it is, so he wondered: why do healthcare systems sidetrack doctors from using their time to do what they do best?
And so, Dr. Gari founded Physician Partners of America in 2013 to serve physicians who want to spend their time seeing patients and stop worrying about administration. Likewise, Florida Pain Relief’s shared goal is to strengthen the doctor-patient relationship, to provide a patient-centered experience that results in better patient outcomes. Today, we are readily transforming the patient experience in the Tampa Bay area, and as for tomorrow, we hope to be revolutionizing the patient experience in new cities across the sunny state of Florida!
Very caring. Willing to try options in order to find something that works for you. Concerned about all aspects of your treatment. The Doctor is friendly & seems like he really cares about his patients. The office staff is also very friendly & willing to help your "paperwork" process easier. After seeing many doctors after my many surgeries I finally found one I like & am comfortable with.
I had a very good experience with Dr. Prasad while being treated for back issues. I was about to cancel my cruise, that I had planned for almost a year. I met Dr.P, about 2 months ago. He suggested me not to cancel the cruise and to try PT and 2 spine injections. I was skeptical, but wanted to give a try. We just got back from 5 days cruise yesterday morning. Thanks to Dr.Prasad, as he suggested the injections and therapy helped me a lot. I didn't miss out the time with family on the cruise. Of course, I didn't do a whole lot on the ship, but being able to spend time with family was amazing.
I could not be happier after seeing Dr. Prasad for just 2 visits. He is genuinely invested in his patients and their well being and has an excellent bedside manner. He is very friendly, but stern, and while I was entering into a severe depression after 21 years of chronic back pain and Methadone just before seeing him for the first time, he has already helped me to deal with this while working to improve my quality of life through an MRI and effective targeted treatments. He has helped me to find ways to pursue my own peace, too, and has given me some real hope again. I cannot say enough good about what a true doctor this man is. He has found his God given reason for being put on this earth and he puts it to good use! Thank you, Dr. Prasad!
Courteous Staff, Clean Office, Dr.Garza listens to the patients needs and their condition, and finds the right medicine to reach the proper comfort level, with the least amount of side effects.
I really like Dr. Chen easy to talk to I can understand him easily. Great staff.
Dr Nieves office can sometimes take a while to get you seen by him or the P.A. but he takes his time with you and cares about you and gives shots, etc that can help. You can tell by his demeanor that he is patient and wants to help you and is not in it just for the money.
Dr. Nieves was very kind and listening. He is very compassionate.
