I am extremely satisfied with my visit to Dr Numsuwan. He is extremely interactive, concise and articulate. Dr Numsuwan took his time to explain the diagnosis so that I could understand and set a timeline to improve my current condition withthe appropriate medications and PT. I couldn't be more satisfied.

Dr. Numsuwan really listened to me. His examination was thorough and thoughtful. He went into a lot of detail explaining to me the MRI and Xray images and how they led him to recommend a specific therapy relative to my presentpain and potential future condition. He was positive, yet realistic and put me at ease. I left with a treatment plan that made sense to me.

Dr. Numsuwan was great! Calm, polite, knowledgable, and a great listener. I couldn't recommend him any more highly than I do. Even when the diagnosis was a bit scary, he quickly calmed me down and reassured me that we'd figure things out.

It was the worst appointment I have ever gone on. His bedside mannor was to not listen to me. I have never seen a specialist like this and he would not allow me to speak. I have never a whole appointmentwhere I cried. I cried because he would not listen to me. I am a educated women with a Master's Degree and he looked at me like I was some kid. I have never had anyone tell me nothing is wrong based on a X-Ray. I begged for a MRI and I waited over a hour and a half to have him ignore me and talk in a microphone. Then try to quiz me on a spine demonstration? I have had pain for years and was explaining this and because my dr.'s had changed due to a move from the Midwest to DC act like it was crazy I had no MRI images. I has a friend with me who said what would you like her to do? I have seen her in pain for a year and he said keep a pain journal. Easy to keep constant back pain for years. I have never felt so brushed of or mistreated in my life. Horrific experience! I also came a long way to see him. I am insulted, and still wondering why he would not order a MRI nor take a X-Ray laying down? Felt judged and not taken seriously! Never has happened to me and he must only care about making money because this man did not let me speak and I didnt need that with the severe back pain I have. Do not see him it will be a waste of your time.

There was a bit of a mix-up with my appointment (I thought I was having a procedure; the office had me down for a straight appointment.) I was really impressed with how Dr. Numsuwan and his team strove to address themiscommunication and get me in for the procedure. They were friendly and accommodating and the procedure was uneventful and easy. I was really pleased. Highly recommend him!

He listens! And meticulously. He (and the team) was very accomodating and helpful in squeezing me in for a small injection procedure within hours after the appointment. I wil be returning for follow up in 4 weeks and I am prettyconfident if my problem does not resolve he will help further.

He explains things very thoroughly and uses a model of the spine & vertebrae to show exactly what he's talking about.I was extremely impressed and feel confident that we'll fix the low back pain I've had for the past two weeks. Highly recommend Dr Numsuwan.

I liked Dr Numsawan very much and plan to return. Unfortunately, contacting the office and trying to get information is such a huge hassle with such long wait times on hold that this may influence whether I remain with the practice.Trying to ask one question about what I needed to do with respect to scheduled back injections today resulted in me being on hold for more than 30 minutes in multiple calls because I was hung up on twice while on hold (for which I did not receive an apology when I called back and explained what happened before being placed on hold for an excessive amount of time yet again). It shouldn't be this hard to get information from my doctor's office for medical procedures.

Saw Dr. Numsuwan for hip/glute pain. Got MRI. Negative. Wanted to give me cortisone shots - but that's temporary. Wanted to get to root of issue so I went in a different direction.
