I came to this group for assistance with my pain in April 2018 and to work on other ways to control it other than pain meds. I have been on meds for 20years and came in searching for other options. First and foremost, I had 3 visits with them and only saw the doctor the first visit, a PA the second and a nurse practitioner the 3rd, even after I requested to see the actual doctor. My doses were pretty high and after they had me do a genetic test my first visit, we found out my high doses were because I metabolize the one medication very quickly. In June, instead of looking into other meds that would require lower doses, the nurse practitioner decided to just cut my current doses in half which as you can imagine, is not the way to taper off meds. After she said the goal was to have me off the meds ASAP; I expressed my concerns that this was being too aggressive given my history. I asked if we could do things slower or use a medication that would work better at a lower dose, based off the tests they had done. She said no, they had to do it this way because they had to get me below a certain dosage by July 1 because of the state mandate for pain medication, which, by the way, does not pertain to chronic pain patients! I then asked to see the Dr. Dangaria, who I specifically booked the appointment with, and she walked out of the room to relay my requests to him (who was sitting in his office) and he would not step in to see me and the nurse practitioner said this was the only way they could do this. I then requested they note my file with my concerns. Here is the issue....this group did not take the time to get to know me, my history or care about the fact I reached out to them for other options. They were uncaring and more concerned about a mandate that did not have anything to do with me and were perfectly fine risking me having some pretty bad side effects from cutting my dosage in half with plans to do it again, instead of doing a slow taper or offer other options. If you are looking for real help, professionalism and caring, this group is not for you. I ended up with worse issues because of their lack of empathy or common sense for that matter! Thankfully, I have found a physician that has been working with me to figure out better ways to treat me with the information we now have regarding which medications work the best and the goal being less of it and eventually the goal is none of it. This physician is doing so in a manner that we are working as a team to make sure the changes we make don’t cause other issues and are of benefit to me. This group supposedly prides themselves on compassion, but the way i was treated did not show any. Again, I came to them for other treatment options and was very open to non-medication treatments, but to immediately make drastic changes before taking the time to get to know me or my concerns is just plain heartless. I would not recommend this group to anyone! Pain Management physicians should express some amount of empathy for patients that deal with chronic pain, especially those that are open to working hand in hand with them. It would be helpful to allow patients to actually see the physician when specifically requested when making the appointment. I requested the physician and not a nurse practitioner or PA and still saw the nurse practitioner, who was the one to make the drastic changes to my treatment plan.

They really try to get to the source and help the pain. They listen to what is hurting you and not just hand you a prescription and send you on your way. They know you by name not by chart.

I don’t normally take the time to write reviews but could not go without raving about Dr. D. He’s a genuine doctor. Takes the time to sit down with you and listen and explain what’s going on. I feel like he truly cares about helping his patients. No complaints whatsoever. His office staff is great as well as Yvonne his ARNP. Will continue to drive from North side of town down to Orange Park just knowing that my experience there is going to be so much more pleasant than it would be going somewhere more convenient to work/home.

This Dr is the rudest person ever, he made me feel as if I was a drug addict in which I am not, I have numerous medical conditions including Congestive Heart Failure, Diastolic Heart Failure, Fybromyalgia, Degenerative Disc And Joint Disease throughout body, Osteoarthritis and many more conditions, I wanted to go back there being its closer to home however my Dr sold his place to these people , I have been on the same medication and dose for 11yrs and I did not appreciate his rudeness , asking me if I read the signs at front desk and on wall , well no I did not see them as I didn’t have my glasses on while in the office, at any rate he then was accusing my pain management I have been with Of giving drugs to heroin users which is a lie to he does Not need to be practicing medicine with a piss poor attitude like he has, I have reported him to the American Disability Act For Discriminating and comparing me to drug addicts !!

Dr. Dangaria has kept me active and enjoying my life and friends. I have had knee and hip replacement. I have had back surgery. My Orthopedic Dr. says I need a shoulder and hip replacement due to severe arthritis and bone spurs. Dr. Dangaria has helped me with exercises and injections. I am 73 and I work in my yard, fish, hike, swim and just enjoy my friends. He is a very professional, kind and caring Dr. Lynda Lewis

Dr.Harsh is one of the nicest Doctors I have ever met, He understands me and my pain and has helped make a plan to ease some of my pain. When he took over my previous doctors office I was ready to find a new Doctor until I met him, he takes real good care of me and I now trust him to do procedures on me after 12 year of being a patient of the previous doctor I'm glad he is here now. Thank you Dr. Harsh.

I've been a patient of Sunshine Spine and Pain Clinic for over 4 years. I am being treated for Chronic pain from herniated discs, buldging discs, failed surgery from 7 disc replacement & fusion in cervical and lumbar, pinched nerves causing pain, burning, numbness and tingling and chronic migraines. Sunshine was the first pain mgt clinic that was very proactive in my care. Dr Rehman was suberb, he didn't try to just bandaid the prob but was always actively seeking to solve the problems I had and get me as pain free as possible. Frankly I was very nervous that his practice was being sold to Physician Partners of America and a new Dr taking over my care. I didn't want to go backwards in my treatment, to where I had been in years past. I and I'm sure many patients like me, have been WONDERFULLY SURPRISED and VERY PLEASED with my new doctor, HARSH DANGARIA, MD, at the newly renamed PHYSICIAN PARTNERS of AMERICA. Dr. Dangaria is VERY PROACTIVE in my pain management treatment. His expertise in the field is evident and he is ahead of the curve when it comes to new and innovative treatment for many different pain conditions. This may sound like a sales pitch but I can only say when you have been to several different pain clinics trying to get relief and you have seen the levels of care I have seen, when you find one that is superb like Dr Dangaria you are SO THANKFUL and want others to benefit from his care also!!! It may sound corny but that is the honest truth. What's even better is he has the nicest demeanor and listens with compassion when you talk to him! He does NOT RUSH YOU like many doctors do, like you are just a number or a head of cattle. He gives you 100% of HIS ATTENTION and WORKS FOR YOU to put you on the right path to alieve your pain. HE DOESN'T STOP UNTIL YOU ARE GETTING RESULTS! So I guess you could say he gets a 5 Star 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 !! I would give him and Physician Partners of America a higher rating if I could!!!
