From the front desk check in to the quick med check, procedure room, and follow up scheduler, all of the staff are conscientious and helpful. Dr. Whitten answered some questions about alternative treatments, and quickly and gently administered the steroids. Dizzy thereafter, I was given the time it took before being escorted down the hall.

Professional but would have liked to have talked to Dr about the use of a patch for pain management now that I have a much better insurance plan that might not cost me $612 a month for a Co pay

Was late being seen,. I was referred by rheumatologist and thought/read that this office works with fibromyalgia. They only addresed the pain but I talked about all issues that are a part of it. I did get trigger point injections before I left. Doing pretty good this morning. Referring me to PT. Am just asking what they do to help the rest of the issues I discussed about fibromyalgia? I will return for follow up in Aug. Judy

Very professional, and very much down to business. He will take time to talk with you and ask if you have any concerns. Dr. Whitten hit precisely where he was supposed to with the needle. 12 hours later I’m still pain free.

I have been working with Dr. Spurgeon for just over 6 months to find a treatment plan for my neck pain. Though we haven't found the treatment that works for me just yet, he has been such a blessing to me on this journey. I am not necessarily the "easiest" patient. I have several medications I won't take for personal reasons. The source of my pain has ambiguous origins. I have been difficult to treat, and where other doctors have thrown anxiety medications and shooed me out the door, he has been patient, has listened to me, and has believed the pain I am feeling is real. Before him I saw countless doctors who left me feeling, for the large part, pretty hopeless about my health circumstances. He is an excellent listener, has an excellent "bed side manner," and is creative and relentless about finding treatment options that will work for me. He is a true breath of fresh air after many encounters with doctors whom I felt wrote me off. I know we will find something that works for me sooner or later. Hopefully it's sooner, but I am so grateful for his care over this past 6 months. I trust him with my health and would, without any hesitation, recommend him to anyone experiencing pain.
