Verified Patient Reviews
I came to see Dr. Diesfield for pain. I have a brain tumor and very uncontrolled fibromyalgia He gave me a shot i didn't ask for. didn't tell me how awful i'd feel afterwards. The shot hasn't worked yet. He tried this radio wave thingy for pain, which is very corny, and did't work at all. He's about the money only!!!! Not out to help patients. This Dr. should not a pain Dr. Simply not for the people.
The doctor and staff are very friendly and accommodating. Has a gentle hand when giving injections.
Dr Diesfeld was very nice and informative. answered my questions and has a good sense of humor. gave me an injection the buttock space area before the opening and I barely felt a thing!! his staff his very nice as well. this particular clinic location parking sucks unless you pay to park on Fullerton, but overall now my pain level has gone from a 10 all the time to a 3 sometimes!!
Dr. Diesfeld actually listens to his patients and discusses treatment plans and we jointly work out what is best. Super nice guy, totally professional and knowledgeable MD.
Location is not directly accessible from the street, you have to enter the hospital to walk down to the address given. Followed all directions and gave referral like asked to from my primary care physician. I am currently experiencing a higher than tolerable injury even with pain medication. Along with the injury I have osteonecrosis which is a condition that contributes to a certain level of pain. When he reviewed how much pain medication I was taking he proceeded to ask me "what are you selling your medication on the streets?" I proceeded to become emotional and was only told he will put in the notes back to my primary doctor what he thinks. Let's review I am at a pain management doctor because we can't control the pain with the current medication, but something had to be taken until he was able to see me. I am very disappointed with his attitude, sworn oath to assist patients and overall direction. I highly do not recommend his attempt at services.
The doctor and staff were great, although we waited outside in front of the office until 9:20am (for a 9am appt) until someone arrived to let us in. Then had an additional half hour - 45 min. wait to see the doctor. Also, my appointment was changed by the staff 3 times. It was a rocky start, but since I am impressed with the doctor's knowledge and listening skills, I will keep my next appointment and withhold further judgement at this time.
He immediately made me feel comfortable. He understands the pains I live with , which to me is huge, I feel he will do for me what is best to keep my pain at a minimum.
Doctor seemed more concerned with politics than receiving my pain
Informative, precise, & helpful appointment.
Quick and speedy appointment.
Dr. D is totally with it and on the ball. Nice guy also.
I think he was very informative and I felt that he really wants to help me and treated with respect and somewhat listened to my concerns. I look forward to building a great doctor patient relationship.
He knows his stuff, but they didn't have my ZocDoc papers and I had to fill out forms at the office.
He's awesome! He and his staff are friendly and professional and the best thing is, I walked out of the office totally PAIN-FREE!!!
He's more concerned over being politically correct than treating my chronic pain. After so many repeated visits I kind of got the vibe like I was just that annoying person coming in to see him again. I continued to tell him that the medication he would give me wasn't working but he would insist with the same routine and not care about how I felt, definitely wouldn't recommend dr. Diesfeld to anyone with chronic pain.
I have been having back issues since a work injury in 2011, due to a work injury. It took me month's to find someone that was willing to see me because the only insurance I have is Medicaid. His office agreed to see me right away! I went there with the expectation to get the run around like I had from other offices I have tried to get into before, It was nothing like I expected the office staff is very friendly and helpful, I have only been to his office 3 times and everyone already knows me by name, always asking how I'm feeling. Nothing like I expected! Dr. Diesfeld is WONDERFUL! I am so lucky I found him, he takes his time with you, makes sure you have no unanswered questions, tries his best to get you some kind of relief before leaving his office while he works on other ways to see what he can do to relief the pain. I recommend him to anyone who is in the same agony of pain I am in, because even though I suffer every single day I feel like I have finally found someone that is on myside and trying to help me.
Didnt really come up with good game plan for my pain I felt hurried
Dr. Diesfeld is very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable about Pain Management, I highly recommend him. His staff is excellent.
