"Dr. Silberberg has provided me with great care. He was able to give me a name for the painful, bedeviling symptoms I have. Even better he knows how to treat it. After 6 years, finally someone who knows what they are doing."

Katharine M.

"The procedure staff are caring and really listen to you when you express concerns or share what works best for you. Dr. Bednar does his best to make you feel comfortable, important, and that your care and comfort is his main concern."

Glenda R.

"Just got my first epidural in my neck and let me say I was so nervous about it until I walked into the office. The front desk ladies are so amazing, sweet and helpful. And the same with Kristen and all her staff in the back, they made me feel 100% comfortable the entire time. Thank you!"

Hannah M.

"Dr. Julia is the best! The staff is professional and friendly to all. Best of all, Dr. Julia is finding solutions for my chronic pain! Never thought that it would be possible.  It's a journey for me, but it seems like there is a solution."

Nancy M.

"Dr. Julia was not what I expected at this place. I could sense genuine concern for the chronic pains that I have suffered with for years. It was refreshing to listen to him explain the reasons for my pain, and that I could understand his explanations. I look forward to the next treatments he has planned for me, and the chance -hopefully- to get the pain under control. After nearly a dozen trips to ER this year, these solutions excite me."

Jesse S.

"I am so relieved I could cry! Finally a pain specialist who listens, cares, and wants to help! Dr. Alan Silberberg has given me so much hope! As someone who has seen pain specialists for decades in different states, this is where you want to come. You NEED him in your life! My only regret is not coming in sooner."
