Dr.Orbegozo has been my pain doctor for 2 years and I have 0 complaints , he listens, he explains , and most of all he has plenty of patience to explain why you are in pain and what he will do to fix it. I wouldn't change him even I didn't have insurance i will keep on seeing him .He makes sure you leave that office knowing what is the next step to feeling better .

My experience with Dr Orbegozo has always been positive and caring. I feel that what goes on around him sheds a bad light on him. Again I tell you no one can ever get through to the office no one returns your call. It seems that there’s one manager for multiple offices that is overworked with all she has to handle. Everyone has always treated me with respect and kindness but we go back to the system in place at both the offices and the scheduling at the Havana surgery center. This is not the responsibility of the Dr it’s the responsibility of PPOA and there management. I have spoken to some of the nicest operators who would try every extension only to come back and say I’m so sorry I can’t get anyone to pick up. Every person I run into if at the offices or the surgery center have the same thing to say it’s not the Drs fault but this is really a terrible set up and the problems need to be addressed! I have been told to pass this on from the staff at Habana Surgery and from people at the offices. There are times I know for me I have tried for days to get through left messages that were never returned and this happens to everyone. You are not doing your Drs justice by putting them in a bad light over things they are not supposed to control! My Dr is great the system is not!

I had severe pain via post op partial knee replacement recently. My knee surgeon was not addressing it well as I was waking up in the middle of the night crying. Dr Obregazo had a long wait ..however, he took his time with me and gave me medication to help in my recovery for the next month. He is an amazing caring Dr but that is where my good experience stops. I was booked for a nerve block to help with my severe pain this Saturday and after 2 and a half hours of waiting my husband asked how much longer I would have to wait as I was in pain from sitting that long and the front desk staff was extremely rude stating “we have no idea probably another 2 hours” I am sorry but over booking procedures on a Saturday morning is not patient centered care. ****I am going to update this review because Dr O took the time to rectify what happened to me 2 weeks ago. I have never met a more caring compassionate Dr in my life and this is coming from a registered nurse whose met and spoken with literally hundreds of Dr’s. I do hope they are able to work out the staffing and answering important phone calls otherwise I will sadly have to leave.

Staff is AWESOME, Dr. O. Is my hero for giving me a quality of life back! Even though R.S.D./CHRONIC PAIN/FIBROMYALGIA ARE NOT CUREABLE, DR. O. HAS LISTENED, AND KEPT MY PAIN LEVELS THE BEST THEY HAVE BEEN SINCE BEING DIAGNOSED IN 2006. His APRN IS AMAZING, TRUELY CARING, AND MAKES YOU FEEL VERY LUCKY TO HAVE FOUND A REAL PAIN CLINIC THAT DOESN'T WANT TO PLAY "LET'S TRY THIS" WHEN YOU'VE BEEN THAT ROUTE COUNTLESS TIMES.THEY PUT THE TRUE MEANING OF CARING BACK IN THE MEDICAL PRACTICE ❤ TOO! LOVE TO DR. O'S TEAM ❤AT MY LOCATION ON SHELDON YOU ALL COMPLETELY DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO MAKE SURE IM NOT LIVING IN A BED, AND LIVING LIFE 1 DAY AT A TIME, GIVING ME A PEACE OF MIND IF I AM IN PAIN THEY WILL TREAT THE PATIENT AND THE PROBLEM ❤ K.

First visit with Dr O and felt very comfortable with him and his staff! I had been seeing the same pain management doctor for about 8 years and his staff was most of the time friendly, but the doctor was cold and hard to discuss health issues with him! It was a difficult decision to change doctors because I was established with the first doctor and knew what to expect. However, going to Dr O was the best decision made because Dr O listened to me, answered my question, and I felt very comfortable talking with him! Many thanks to Dr O and his staff! 💖

DR, O, is very professional and one of the hardest actively involved Dr's I have ever had. He is not hiding from clients or hidden in an office waiting to write scripts. He genuinely plays an active roll in leadership in office etiquette as well as going patient to patient to read over your chart together. In my personal experience, the first time I had made an appointment I had patiently waited over an hour and when he came to find this out, he expressed out loud to all staff that no paitent should have to wait over an hour followed by saying "that it was unacceptable". I knew then Dr, O, really does care about his patients whether its your first time or fifteenth visit. I have gone to many doctors and not one took my pain seriously. I mask and hide the pain really well but Dr, O was able to see through my mask and get a plan started for my pain management. With a month I was able to receive shots on my lower back and be seen at multiple places for MRI's

I've been experiencing pain from various injuries. Over the past 4 years I have had several pain doctors and have had poor experiences with each of them. I always left my appointments KNOWING that they werent listening to me, were pushing/over prescribing medication, pushing me to have unnecessary procedures, or even worse, scolding me for not having procedures that THEY ALREADY PERFORMED on me PERSONALLY. It goes without saying, chronic pain takes a mental toll in addition to the physical pain. It is incredibly demoralizing and deflating to go to the professional who is supposed to care about your well-being and they treat you like they are doing you a favor by just seeing you. SO, when I went to see Dr. Orbegozo I was expecting to have the same experience I've had the last few years; disinterested, insincere, apathetic doctor. INSTEAD, what I found was that he took inordinate care to review my chart, ask about my issues/concerns/limitations, and listen to my woes about my decreasing ability to maintain my active lifestyle. I left Dr. O's office feeling, FOR ONCE, that I'd been heard, cared about, and being treated by someone who is genuinely interested in helping me live my best life. Thank you Dr. O for your great service!

Found this office just by putting in pain management doctor's online 2 yrs ago and Dr Orbegozo and Heidi and the office staff Jasmine and Amanda the office manager has always done anything possible to keep me pain free from surgeries or procedures that I've had done. Anytime I call the office I am always returned with a phone call right away with any .. wouldn't know what I would of done without Heidi and Dr Orbegozo and his office staff today they went to the top for me Thank you guys so much 😀👍
