Dr Pak was very engaging and I enjoyed the visit; he was also very pleasant. The wait time was horrendous. I had to go to the front to tell them I had been there since 8:25 am and it was 10:21.I personally think I was forgotten although they said I wasn't and that I was scheduled to go next. Honesty and an apology would have been appreciated.

This used to be a great practice. No more. They don't care about their patients and won't fight for their care or well being. If I were you, I would choose another provider if at all possible.

Dr. Pak appeared to be a vary empathetic doctor. He shared details of the treatment with me. However, the front office was a complete opposite. No professionalism. No concept of HIPAA practices. I was in the clinic for a nerve painthat hurt while standing. I was at the check out window, and stood behind another patient for quite a while. Many ladies in the front office walked around, and looked at he as well. But no one called me over. Finally, the lady at the window where I was standing, called me over, while the patient in front of me was still being served. I raised a concern about HIPAA violation, because the check out clerk had no hesitation discussing my condition in presence of the other patient. In fact she remarked that it was OK. On hearing my concern, another lady in the front office informed me that she "could have" helped me at her window, although she came around at least three times and looked at me waiting there. Dr. Pak very spiritedly introduced me to their therapy facility next door. But the lady who was checking me out appeared least interested in offering me the therapy at their own location. She noticeably encouraged me to go anywhere I wanted to go. I will wait and see if they call me for the therapy after insurance pre-authorization.

Wasn’t quite the outcome I was hoping for. A patient with an acute injury will receive an accommodation for a handicap placard or plate. But my permanent, degenerative back disorder isn’t qualified for permanent handicap privileges; somethingis wrong with the system. When something is wrong it should be set right.

He's very knowledgeable about my complicated dx's and is approachable.He is the only one able to ameliorate my pain. I went to UTSW Pain Clinic and got no relief with some ant-seizure med that was rx'd off label for 2 typesof pain I didn't even have. The only complaint I have is that you can hear other patients discussion through walls which is against HIPPA. As a therapist I would recommend music or noise machine with waves, etc. The office and staff are efficient and courteous. The practice is so large that even if you are a new pt and in pain you can get an appointment quickly.

I enjoy the fact that all of the staff is courteous and helpful. Most importantly they are interested in problem solving and helping me utilize techniques to help my situation and not just write a prescription. Medication helps, however thereare other things we discuss that are helpful. I enjoy his physicians assistant who genuinely takes an active role in helping. Basically I don't feel like "just another patient". Definitely a class act group of people that certainly make you feel comfortable and are always willing to help. I will be coming to see these guys as long as I need pain management services.
