I called to make an appointment and the rudest lady answered the phone. I asked her if I needed a referral for an appointment and she acted like I was stupid. She also said I needed a diagnosis and when I told her I was unsure why I was having so much back pain, she responded "well that's your diagnosis, you go to the doctor to figure it out". She is probably losing so many patients due to her horrible attitude. I won't be making an appointment there.
I can't thank this place enough for what they have done for me and my back pain. Slowly but surely, I am feeling a difference. My doctor is so kind, and he seems to really know his stuff about spinal problems and hip problems. I can sympathize with the comment penny1952 made about the pain being so awful you just want to crawl in a hole and die. Chronic pain is a HORRIBLE thing to suffer from. I thought I would NEVER get relief, but Dr.J is an amazing doctor. I am now able to shower everyday, and that is HUGE for me. Chronic pain can literally ruin your life and relationships because you can't join your family in activities, it can be extremely depressing. I am far from 100% but I am making progress, and I feel like Dr. J is just an angel. Showering everyday may not seem like that big of a deal, but for me, it is a huge deal. I still suffer from terrible pain everyday, but my Dr. is making life better each time I see him. The epidural injections hurt like hell, but they have helped. And my Dr. can tell just by the way I react to the needle in my tailbone. Trust me people, these people can work miracles.
I would never go there again. Not that I could. I have been banned from there for threatening a DR Greenfield. He is a QUACK!!!
I went there knowing what part of my problems were. They are very good I am having the side effects ut doing tests on you, but very unorganized. The Dr that I go to, his last name starts with a F, I don't feel right saying his name...but he is very ditzy! He never remembers what I am there for, he tells me there is no way I am having the side effects that I am having, and discourages me from reducing the dose, even after knowing that I am scared of becoming an addict! I hadn't fully explained my pain before he put me on Oxycontin, 20mg every 12 hours, and oxycodone 15mg every 4 to six hours as needed. For all of you that don't know this...it's great for certain pain, but that tiny pill ruins lives, and relationships with family, friends...basically EVERYONE!!! I am so glad that they help me but I definitely feel like they PUSH the drugs, and try to get money from your insurance ANY way that they can. Oh and they also love to try and talk you into surgeries, and "procedures"
I LOVE my doctor, Dr. Pinkerton!y only complaint are the wait times for my appointments and one of the receptionist Condy! She is lazy, incompetent and disrespectful! She does the bare minimum to keep her job and will NEVER go out of her way to help a patient in need. I'm posting this here and making a formal complaint with Dr. Pinkerton. Also the review about cluster headaches is I'm sure true however I see Dr Pinkerton for chronic migraines and he is very knowledgable about migraines and cluster headaches. I have never met Dr Judilla but I know the Dr Garcia doesn't know anything about them either. If that's your problem demand Dr Pinkerton
Dr. Judilla lied to me! – Just had THE WORSE doctor visit imaginable! Went to The Headache and Pain Center in Overland Park, KS for treatment of my Cluster Headaches. When I made the appointment I specifically asked them if their doctors treat Cluster Headaches and prescribed the medicines that I am currently prescribed. They told me that they did. Appointment was with Dr. Frank Judilla. After a lengthy new patient interview with the assistant, supplying MRIs and CT Scans and all current meds, Dr. Judilla came in the room and asked if it was my back that hurt. I was kinda surprised and told him that I have already been tested, etc. and diagnosed with Chronic Cluster Headaches. I asked him if he was knowledgable on the subject and he said yes. I told him the meds and dosages I take and he said he does not use those. He asked if I've tried Tylonol to treat the pain! Are you kidding me? I am on schedule 3 narcotics. I asked him again if he knew about Cluster Headaches and he admitted that he didn't know ANYTHING about them. He lied to me!!! Are you kidding me???? A headache clinic??? Really???? He got out of his chair and walked out of the room. We were SHOCKED to say the least. I went to the front desk and WHILE I was telling them about what had just happened the phone rang and she answered it and kept talking to the caller WHILE I WAS TALKING TO HER!!!! Avoid this place! They just scammed me for $300.
Complaints – I have been using the Headache and Pain Center for almost 2 years now. My only complaint is the wait for the clinic. They do overbook , but so do most of the doctor's out there. There staff have always been nothing but nice and compassionate. What a lot of people don't realize is that this is the only other place beside's Truman Hospital in KC,MO that accept Medicaid so they are swamped constantly. I had Dr. Lowry perform a disectomy on my back and I wish all doctors had half of the patience and compassion that this man has. I would recommend this facility.
Pain Free! – Overall I had an excellent experience with the Headache and Pain Center. I was having constant migranes and after seeing the doctor and running some tests, they recommended a course of treatment that was reasonable and very simple to follow. I did not have the experience of getting ripped off like the complainers. It was excellent medical treatment for the cost that I wanted, and could afford, to pay.
I recommend it to anyone and everyone!
In-Net - They lie to get you to come! – I hate the Headache and Pain Center. I called to make a appointment, asked if they were in net-work with my insurance. The scheduler called me back the next day to tell me yes they were in-net and set my appointment. After I about three visits - I started getting bills from them stating that I owed them 1,000s of dollars. They were so rude and disrespectful to me concerning this account. I would never go there again.
