Unbelievable! Dr. Prasad has been great--staff too. I was pretty sure I needed to get cortisone shots for a bad shoulder. Thought that would be ortho guy giving me a shot. Dr. Prasad did a procedure in day hospital where he could see exactly where the needle should go with x-ray. Pain is gone! Much thanks to Dr. Prasad and his staff!

Got injured after a fall and was in severe sciatica pain.Felt humble that so much can happen without our control!.Our family doctor referred to Dr.P.He explained for the first time what was the problem, pinched nerve.MRI test confirmed it and got epidural inj with very good relief.He was very compassionate throughout. He then referred me to therapy and told us how imp it is to exercise regularly and lift and bend correctly during day to day work. Now I'm back at work. Thanks a lot Dr.P.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I had a very good experience with Dr.Prasad, while being treated for back issues. I was about to cancet 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. Ofcourse, I didn't do a whole lot on the ship, but being able to spend time with family was amazing.

He made me feel comfortable. He didn't judge me based on my medications and my diseases. He made wonderful suggestions that I could understand and didn't rush me out of the office. He listened to me!!!!!!! He gave me hope that he will be able to make my disease that's incurable and devastating (RA, FM....) to a disease that I'm going to be able to finally accept and be able to get to the point where I'm able to function at the status I was able to before I got sick a few years ago. This all in the first few visits is how he made me feel - hopeful! This is truly amazing as I've been to endless number of drs and found only one other to be so great. I hope it stays this way...........

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!

Great fund of knowledge. explains the condition so well that I can understand, did not rush me, empathetic. He said "I can understand how you feel and we both will work through this to get you better" and it brought tears and no other doctor ever said this to me. I feel very comfortable that Im in very good hands.

Dr. Prasad is a very skilled and caring doctor. He and his staff always follow up with a call to see if I am better. That means a lot to me. He explains and listens to what you say and how you are hurting. I am much better.

Dr. Prasad is personable, and takes as much time as necessary to completely understand all the medical issues which may contribute to pain. He explains options, and is not one to rush to the most drastic solution. I like that he is evaluative of the effectiveness of more conservative treatments first.

Mine is a sad story with but with happy ending. Working in construction industry and driving a lot at the construction site took a toll on my back. Have seen many pain docs, who just put me on pain meds and when they did not work, they just added more meds including xanax and valium. Later they would only talk to me if I wanted injections, if I didn't want injections they would just hand me the prescriptions. My employer said I can't continue. I started seeing Dr.Prasad few months before loosing my job. I was not a nice patient in his clinic, but he did patiently worked with me. He lowered my pain meds, did burn some nerves in my back [sounded scary, but was not very painful but some soreness] .He referred to a rehab place and now I don't take Valium and Xanax. Now I'm rehired at the same job and Im a new person. Thanks Dr.Prasad, i could not have done it without you!!!!

Dr.Prasad was able to help me a lot to decreasel my pain. Dr.P and his staff gathered my med records and did some lab work and then started me on pain meds. I was explained my condiction, how my meds work and the treatment using a spine model and pictures. I recently had a "test injection" and hopefully can get a permanent relief injection soon. As I did not have a primary care doctor, he even urged me to have a regular primary doctor to take care of my health. I was so touched that he not only treats my pain but concerned about my overall well being. While nobody likes the idea of seeing a doctor, its comforting to know I am in great hands with a caring doctor. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Prasad to anyone who is experiencing pain!

I recently went to the ER with nerve pain shooting down my arm. The ER physicians weren't able to do anything for me other than Tylenol-3. With the New Year approaching, I was able to make an appointment with Dr Prasad. He was extremely reassuring that he would be able to help me. Two weeks later, my pain has been greatly reduced. He will be doing 2 injections to help with the bulging disc that has been causing my nerve pain. Dr Prasad is very easy to speak with and did a great job explaining explaining the results of my MRI.

I was in extreme pain due to a pinched nerve in my spine. Dr Prasad has been wonderful. The meds I received have been successful in reducing a majority of my pain. Next, he will be doing two injections that will hopefully eliminate the remaining pain in my shoulder and arm. I'm so glad that I found Dr Prasad to help me get through this excruciating pain.

After MANY back surgeries over the past 5 years and many doctors, to include multiple pain management specialists, I finally found one I am confident will do everything in his power to bring me much needed pain relief! Dr Prasad truly cares! He takes time to listen and I've never felt rushed. He clearly explains various approaches and procedures and makes you feel like you are unique and a key part of your treatment process. Just when I thought I had tried it all and was ready to give up, he came up with 3 additional options not one of my many other doctors had even mentioned before. He quickly changed my hopelessnes into HOPEFULNESS. His staff is so helpful and friendly too. Thank you ALL so much!

I was referred to Dr. Prasad by one of my colleagues. He is not my first pain doctor. I waited untill I saw him at least few times before putting this comment. He explained me of my condition very well, using spine model, other pictures. Treatment offered by him was also explained in simple terms and in a way to make logical sense. MRI scan [where he sent me costed way less than where other doctor had sent me to!] showed what exactly he diagnosed me with. Had few injections so far and my pain is way better. Now I can sit and drive for at least 2 hours straight, after work come back home to my kids not in terrible pain, and talk to my clients without pain affecting my focus. I hope what he has done, lasts for long as has been explained to me. He is very genuinely concerned with patients and a very good doctor, whom I wish I had seen many years ago.

Dr. Prasad was nice but straight forward and having to hear u would need surgery he told me he would help me avoid it with other techniques. Also, Dr.Prasad was the first doctor who understood my weight gain from my injury and encouraged me to understand that after I felt less pain I would exercise and feel better again!

Dr.Prasad, made efforts to contact my insurance to get me the right treatment, that had been denied by insurance. I'm making steady improvement, can complete my full shift with manageable pain. Kudos to Dr.Prasad and staff. I hope he can help my husband too.

It is really difficult in this day and age to find a doctor who truly cares about the health of a patient and has their best interests at heart with no strings attached. Dr. Prasad is the best pain doctor I have ever encountered. He is very knowledgeable, patient, kind and caring and I trust his care with the utmost confidence. Thank you for everything you do!
