Left them and followed my doc back to Flower Mound. Dr Bhandari at Liberty Pain Associates - that's who I would recommend to my friends & family. Huge turnover of doctors & didn't like the massive out of network bills from Tampa FL.

Dr. Shalev is old school but he is very knowledgeable. He takes his time to fully asses my pain and problems I am having. He does prescribe medications but procedures are highly recommended. Procedures were the best thing I did for my back pain. He knows his stuff! For years I had the wrong diagnosis but he truly knew what was wrong with me. I am glad I found Dr. Shalev. I am happy he takes his time with me. Office manager was very kind and eager to help me with all my questions. Staff is nice and friendly. Billing was some of and issue but the staff informed me the billing is done at a different location in Florida which is odd why have corporate in a different state. But overall has nothing to do with the clinic. He help me so much. Highly recommend doing procedures with him. Better than my last pain management.

Run from this place as I type I am on the phone with Blue Cross attempting to figure out why office visits AFTER a year were denied.. Now how does a company bill a year after service actually over a year. My first visit from Oct 2016 was billed to me Dec 2017 and the drug test was in network but the doctor visit wasnt... Oh and they have been trying to bill my insurance $8000 for a DNA test I dont recall and insurance wont pay. They belong to Physicians Partners and from what I could determine they actually own the lab in Florida. Havent seen a bill for the DNA ripoff yet.. Oh and I spoke to the billing department here in Texas before all these bills arrived and they called to ask if I was going to come back I told them no and asked if I owed anything as I knew this place was trying to bill the DNA ripoff for 9 months with no luck. The lady told me no I owed nothing but the a few months later bills began to arrive for office visits a year before. Run run run from this place... Screw these peoples response.. They dont care so found out my doctor was out of network but they have your insurance up front and doctors in network they chose to send me to the out of network one.. Why? More money.. I did a test and called to schedule an appointment made sure to ask if they took my BCBD and it was a huge yes.. Transferred me and other lady was scheduling took my info and gave me the docs name so I again asked so she checks... No he isnt... But this other Doctor is... Yeah you know it already BCBS only has a couple plans so they bait and switch knowing the patient is on the hook. The only people that love this place are there for a drug fix or to get prescriptions to sell I am not lying you got to see it like gang banger central. This place should be shut down and the owners put behind bars.. Update.. 06/18 So I continue to get 2 bills from these losers for my original office visit in McKinney 2 years ago and my 2nd visit a day later at this office. It's actually hilarious what legit company bills you a year after your appointment then continues sending you bills for another year and tries to get a bogus DNA test paid by insurance billing them for 2 years. They have no desire to go to court and no desire to send to collections they just hope my insurance will pay the DNA BS and I will pay the office visit for their out of network lies.... Hey TPR it ain't happening it's a personal thing to me now. Again people avoid at all cost .. read the other reviews.

I have been coming to this location for about six months. After sign in and paying copay I have never been placed in a room without waiting over an hour. Then it's another 30-45 min wait to actually see someone. Be prepared to wait 2 plus hours at this location just to get refills.

Dr. Shalev is the worst. His communication skills are terrible. He doesn’t listen and wants to do experimental injections that are NOT COVERED by the insurance but wants to call them something else so the insurance DOES cover them. Is this legal? Its dishonest and unethical. The staff is awful here. Lazy, preoccupied with their own conversations, and NOT personable whatsoever. Texas Pain Relief Group as whole has proven time and time again these guys are FOR PROFIT ONLY with little respect, care, concern, or understanding for their patients. Truly false advertising with "We don't just treat the pain, we treat the person". Spare yourself the time, money, and frustration. There ARE good doctors out there but NOT here. I've finally found one after trying so hard with this group. If you are looking for a doctor who is willing to listen, does not pass judgment on you, or is condescending or a pain relief group who does not slap you with outrageous bills with unnecessary testing or experimental injections, PLEASE, PLEASE STAY AWAY from Texas Pain Relief Group. You CAN find a GOOD doctor who genuinely cares about you but YOU WILL NOT FIND ANY with the TEXAS PAIN RELIEF GROUP. Living with Pain is already SO stressful and frustrating. The only things Dr. Shalev and Dr, Norcrrini have done is make me feel worse about myself but also added a ton of unnecessary stress, anxiety, and an added financial burden.

The help from pain relief group has been a long help to me while dealing with nerve pain for many months. I recently had neck surgery and hope to keep working with them for months to come.

I’ve been a previous patient, of Dr Shalev , prior to this office opening, for several years. My first appointment was scheduled for 1pm. I arrived at 12:15 for new paperwork since it is the new location, I didn’t leave the office until 3pm. I understand “first” appointments take a little longer but almost 3 hrs was a bit long. I do not like changing doctors and have been with Dr Shalev for years, I trust and appreciate his care as a doctor and plan on staying with him as long as he’s around. He’s a great doctor and doesn’t rush visits and is a good man. I live 60 miles from the new office which makes my visit a120 mile round trip. Previously I only had to make that trip every three months since I live so far away and I live in a rural area. I was informed that I will have to make the trip each month just for med refills, wish that could stay the same as before. Other than that Dr Shalev old school, all around, great doctor.

I really appreciate my doctor truly working with me to help me be able to address my pain issues and allowing me to continue to work. I have to work and unfortunately have to have pain medication to be able to sustain a full time working status. Thank you, sincerely Jack E. Bramblett

My insurance told them I was active and they still wanted to make me a self pay. The make you sign a piece of paper telling you that they are going to get you addicted and they take your insurance for a few months then they try to make you self pay to get 3 times the rate.

Vultures! I went in for help and they treated me like a criminal. UA immediately to check for opioids and they informed me I would have to do it every 2-3 months to continue to check opioid levels. They did not prescribe opioids, I do not take opioids, but they charged my insurance an exorbitant amount for the test! Both times I went there I had to wait more than an hour after my appointment started to see the NP. Different NP each time despite only one name being on the door. Overall, terrible experience and I will not be going back.

DO NOT BOTHER!!! I went for my consultation and you'd think they'd make sure to make a good impression. Nope! I got there at 2:30. 30 mins prior to my appt to fill out paperwork at their request. I was still sitting in the waiting room at 3:30. There was a lady that had an apt at TWO and she was still sitting in the waiting room. I just got up and left. I wasn't going to even start going to an office that can't get their act together. I left a prievious office for the same reason. I spent hours of my day IN PAIN waiting to see the dr. Another guy walks in with an appt at 3:15. Mine was scheduled for 3 as a new patient??!! Usually new patients are given at least 30-45 mins to go over all of the history. They seem like they just are trying to heard as many people as they can in and out of the office.

I have never in my life been so embarrassed. My insurance provider notified me that they were committing insurance fraud by sending 2k worth of arthritic cream and lidocaine. So much so one could not use in a single month. My provider quit covering it. I went in for refills and urine analysis came back negative for any substances. I ran out of medication due to a car wreck that caused some more injuries. They refused treatment and treated me like a criminal. Then had the audacity to tell I would have to drive over an hour away to see the dr. I was supposed to be seeing to clear things up. I have also been receiving bills that were not covered by my insurance. I never authorized any treatment my provider wouldn't cover. This place is a joke. They don't care about patients just the money.... Steer clear. There are plenty of trust worthy clinics. I won't be going back.

Be careful. I've been misinformed by this company about insurance coverage. Even after calling to clarify they provided the wrong information. The billing provider they use, Physician Partners of America, never answers and takes multiple voicemail and weeks to call back. I would not trust them.

This used an out of network provider called Medical Tox Labs for a urinalysis that I received a bill in the mail for $9,880. This is insurance fraud. Stay away from Texas Pain Relief Group. They do this to many people. I was told when I gave them my urine that all tests would be covered under my copay.
