22:50 10 Feb 20
This place has given me back my life and I have recommended them to many people and will continue to do so! Before them all the doctors wanted to do was heavily medicate me which is no way to live once I found this group of doctors I was able to have treatments to reduce my pain and now I don't need handfuls of meds

Dr. Patel and his staff do a fantastic job. My back pain has been significantly reduced as a result of treatments I have received under his care. I would highly recommend his practice if you suffer from any type of chronic pain.
21:54 12 Dec 19
The staff are always professional and friendly. I have trusted Dr. Patel and Joseph with my healthcare needs for many years, and I do not want plan on going anywhere else.Very nice facilities, too.
01:19 12 Dec 19
David is very caring and super knowledgeable on spine and nerve pain. He always explains everything and why one injury can completely affect another part of your body, that otherwise seems unrelated.
21:01 10 Dec 19
Professional, caring, and supportive staff. Immaculate office.
03:45 10 Dec 19
I have been seen by Premier Spine since they opened their doors. Both Dr. Patel and Joseph Shankland are very dedicated to their profession and care about their patients and their well being. The staff is the best!
05:30 07 Dec 19
I was very nervous when I arrived for my injection the front office staff was very friendly. They seemed busy and I thought It would be a long wait but I was seen very quickly. I wish I could remember everyone’s names. My nurse was helpful and she put me feel comfortable’ to the two assistance in the procedure room made me feel comfortable and reassured me. Dr Patel came in explained what was going on and before I knew it the procedure was over. I was shocked. First for how quick and painless my procedure was and second that everyone in De Patels office office was friendly accommodating and sensed my apprehension ;they made me feel very comfortable. Thank You, Caroline Woodruff
05:27 04 Dec 19
I’ve been going to this office for approximately 6 months and have nothing but good things to say. The office staff is polite and very prompt in following up on things. Also the medical staff are equally helpful and informative. I moved from another practice just down the street and Premier is much much better in my opinion.
00:15 04 Dec 19
This is great place if you are in pain they want you to find relief for you
00:03 28 Nov 19
Great care, compassionate and caring. I see Joseph Shankland PA and he takes great care of me. His care allows me to be a better husband and father and I couldn’t ask for more than that.
00:03 23 Nov 19
Premier Spine & Pain Institute Is a PREMIER Place to Go If You are Hurting. They have Compassion and Understanding What You are Going Through. Dr. PATEL, and His Staff are Excellent. They Listen to What You're Needs Are, an act Upon Them. In My Opinion, They are the Best of the Best.
21:31 14 Nov 19
Dr. Patel and his staff at Premier Spine & Pain Institute have provided me ongoing and superior service for chronic pain and the surgical implementation of a spinal pain pump. The Medtronic pump and trigger point injections have helped me get back to functional. The attention to detail and personal care translates well and is very comforting. It’s nice to have a supportive team to help with long-term and debilitative pain. Many thanks Premier Spine & Pain!
20:24 11 Nov 19
The medical staff and front desk we helpful, attentive and congenial.
03:48 10 Nov 19
David Eastlund a PA at this clinic is Awesome! He patiently listens to my complaints and gives me suggestions to help alleviate some of my pain. He gives me trigger point every 2 weeks and always finds the spots that are bothering me the worst. He hears me out and always gives me options. He has a very kind personality! Dr Patel always gives me the major steroid shots I need. He is phenomenal too! I have recommended many people to this office and non of the people I refer are ever disappointed! Everyone at this office are so sweet and professional too!
21:39 30 Oct 19
Dr. Eastlund keeps looking for better alternatives with me and is both empathetic and honest with me about my pain. He is not afraid to use all the tools at his disposal to help manage my pain and he encourages me to look up new medications and procedures so that I am informed and can make intelligent decisions about my own care.
18:03 27 Sep 19
Best staff medical staff and Doctor's been around in a long time
22:46 26 Sep 19

21:50 23 Sep 19
Excellent care from their staff and dototors would not go any were else Joseph listens to you and examines you.dose not have his whole focus on a computer screen and talk to you like a person
02:04 21 Sep 19
Always very friendly,attentive, they treat me like family.
00:22 20 Sep 19
I really like the way everyone makes you feel welcome when I'm there. Dr Patel and Dr David are the best. I really feel like I'm getting the best care overall. Thank you so much.
23:02 19 Sep 19
I was very skeptical about having to change my pain management doctor. I had the worst experience with my last doctor. He didn't listen to me and decided I needed an injection I didn't. I ended up with permanent nerve damage around my tailbone and I haven't been able to sit straight up since without a donut. The first time I came to this clinic I finally found a place that listened to me. They have worked with me and they truly understand my pain. The staff is very professional and friendly. My provider Joseph is one of the best I have ever had. I should know since I was in the medical field for eight years and worked with quite a few doctors. Joseph is very knowledgeable and he doesn't beat around the bush. He truly cares about the welfare of his patients and he knows and has the tools to help with pain. You just have to be willing to listen and take his advice. He also has one of the best Medical Assistance out there. Dennis is so professional and personable its awesome. He actually cares about the patients as well. Something I am sorry to say that is really lacking in the Medical field these days. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate and am grateful they came into my life. They have helped me through the darkest time of my life and I only wish I could repay them in kind.
21:04 19 Sep 19
Fantastic staff and doctors. Very caring and professional.
23:13 17 Sep 19
I have been a patience of Joseph Shanklin for 5 years now. And I have received excellent care. I am so grateful to have found a Physicians, that takes the time to listen to my concerns & cares if I'm doing well.
22:26 17 Sep 19
This is the absolute best place in town when it comes to pain management, David Eastlund has kept me virtually pain free for the last couple years .
16:24 03 Sep 19
Excellent people very caring.

I love coming here, the staff and doctors are so welcoming and easy to communicate with. Dealing with severe pain is a lot easier when surrounded by people who genuinely care about your health and well-being
23:05 16 Aug 19
I have always been treated with respect and compassion by all the staff. The medical staff has always been on the cutting edge of new medical breakthroughs and eager to share all options in my care as a patient.
04:40 11 Aug 19

I always have been treated well and with respect from both Dr Reusswig and Dr Patel. Dr Patel does a great job when getting F-Blocks in my lower spine. Both Joseph and David are professional, kind and understanding. I have great respect for the entire office.
06:33 02 Jul 19
I have been going to Premier Spine and Pain since before they even existed ;-). Dr. Patel is a wonderful, empathetic and knowledgeable physician and my PA Joseph is incredible. Both of them have allowed a lot of flexibility and Ingenuity in my care which has made a huge difference in my life. A good pain clinic will change your life and turn your suffering around...that's what you'll get here.
02:35 22 Jun 19
Today I went in due to pain in my back and neck. David took his time with me to explain my back issues and go over a plan for care. He explained things in a way I could understand and treated me with kindness. I’m so glad I was referred to David.
16:59 14 Jun 19

16:19 31 Jan 19
I've been to many doctors over the past 7 years, I mean a lot ,from regular MD, to back surgon, to therapist physical and mental. I was given 3-6 months to live due to bad liver and pancreas . Well that was 7 years ago. So I've seen A LOT OF doctors ! But I must say when I met dr. Eastlund ,it was as if my prayers were answerd. He is so full of information, he understands what I have going on . He absolutely does not make me feel like I'm some kind of criminal, and belive me most pain specialist make you feel just like that.. so I think you guys have a wonderful place going there , the staff is great, they work together like a old sewing machine, I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Dr. Eastlund ,and everyone at premier ✌
22:56 25 Jan 19
Very knowledgeable and helpful staff, I've been going to them for the last three years and they are awesome.
05:38 16 Jan 19

23:58 29 Nov 18
I have seen multiple providers at this location, and they are all excellent. Joseph is my primary, and he is THE BEST. He genuinely cares about his patients. He always asks how my kids and husband are and is always very helpful with any problems I bring to him. I wish all doctors took the time to care about their patients the way he does. 10 starsKristen N.

Sometimes these days it can be very difficult to find a caring, dedicated Doctor of any type. I have found the more specialized the Doctor is, usually the more attitude you get from everyone in that office. The exact opposite is what you will find at Premier Spine. Dr. Patel and his staff are some of the most caring and dedicated professionals I have had the fortune to meet in my medical journey. There was one point where Dr. Patel's partner passed away, He had to move his office and he welcomed a baby boy to his family. It was unbelievable how upbeat and communicative he was. He went out of his way to make sure procedures got scheduled and follow-ups were taken care of.And that's that isn't even taking in to account his all-star level of his work. Over the years visiting several other doctors for injection procedures, I came to resist even the mention of these procedures. Dr. Patel's touch and skill makes these type of the visits bearable. Office visits are great. Dr. Patel actually has a conversation with you rather than rushing in 30 minutes late and rushing out 5 minutes later. All questions are thoughtfully answered. Bonus points for never seeing a drug rep in his office pushing pills and backing up appointments. This is so rare these days.Almost as rare as a kind, compassionate and professional doctor such as Dr. Patel.
20:58 16 Nov 18
Dr. Patel is so friendly & actually cares & understands about his patients, the staff is awesome! They treat you like family, I'm so glad I found such a great pain specialist.
22:33 01 Nov 18
Joseph and David are who I usually see and they are amazing. Very understanding and knowledgeable. Helped me deal with pain the right way and are just good people in general.
20:36 17 Oct 18
I am so grateful to have found such an excellent pain management office, with such caring doctors & staff. Living with chronic pain is a roller coaster and a nightmare. I appreciate how much they truly care about me and try to help. They are always caring, compassionate, professional, knowledgeable, and supportive. They are absolutely everything I would ask for in a doctors office! The staff is absolutely extraordinary. They’ve been so amazing with me, that I feel as though they are friends. Not only do I appreciate the Drs/PAs medical intelligence and professionalism, I appreciate their ability to be empathetic toward me & my pain. They treat me like a human being & I appreciate that more than they know! People in the medical community seem to treat you poorly when you are on narcotics, assuming you are a drug addict -so it’s refreshing to be treated with respect & concern! Thank you JOSEPH, Dawn, Dennis & Stacy! Thank you, for being YOU! You are making a difference in peoples’ lives! I have also heard that Dr Patel is amazing as well. I have not had the pleasure of working with him yet. If are looking for a great pain management office, you found it!!!!
10:38 10 Oct 18
I needed an EMG. I'd had one before and it was a horribly painful experience so I cringed at the thought of having to go through it again. I was astonished. Dr Patel is truly a concerned, compassionate and caring physician. While he was performing my EMG, it wasn't near as painful as before, we discussed my need for another Pain Management doctor. Although that's not what my appointment was for, he listened. He assured me we could set an appointment to discuss it in more detail but gave me hope just by saying he believed he could help me. This man has improved my quality of life. He's a rare individual. Truly a blessing. He takes his time with his patients. He is well informed and able to relay information, at your speed and in terms you can understand. Spread the word. The good doctor is in!! ☆☆☆☆☆
01:27 10 Oct 18
I sought out Dr. Patel after my primary care physician suggested I go see a specialist for some issues I was having with my elbow. While doing some research online I was drawn to PSPI because of Dr. Patel’s physiatry background. I was able to get through to an actual staff member quickly and they were able to fit me in on their schedule in a timely manner. I was highly impressed with the staff’s professionalism and even more impressed with Dr. Patel’s bedside manner and expertise. I’d recommend Dr. Patel and his staff to any type of pain patient.
18:34 07 Oct 18
My mother (she is 76) has been seeing Dr. Patel for over 2 years. She comes for over an hour a way to see him and his staff. I never figured out why she drives so far but I finally went to her last appointment and it all made sense. Such nice people. They are genuine. They seem to care. My husband is making an appointment now as well.
01:20 06 Oct 18
Fantastic pain practice! Wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Stop looking elsewhere and go.
01:48 20 Sep 18
All of the staff are amazing..Dr Patel is a life saver,if you are willing to do the work.
18:13 18 Sep 18
This practice has given my life a renewed sense of inspiration as a father and husband. These medical professionals really care and not only seek to heal and relieve your pain, they actually achieve this.
20:48 14 Sep 18
My mom has always had a very good experience in this office with staff,and doctors.Everyone goes above what is expected,they are competent,experienced in their field of expertise,kind,helpful and understanding of patients needs.The compassion shown is heartwarming.I highly recommend them.
11:22 31 Aug 18
The professionalism and courtesy extended by both physicians and staff are of the highest caliber. I believe their desire to both address concerns,and problems to be of highest priority and are handled with same.
18:21 28 Aug 18
The whole office is Great! I travel an hour and a half to get to my appointments but would not consider going to another pain clinic. They have went way above and beyond for my care. Kudos to Dennis, Dr. Patel and Joseph. You all are the best in the field of pain management
13:15 11 Aug 18
I am mostly impressed with the proactive pace in Dr. Patel’s office. He is a very productive physician and delights in always moving forward at a stepped-up pace with his patients! The other impression I have of Dr. Patel is that he cares Intensively about his patients! When you enter his turf, you then become his focus and his responsibility! This is not only felt but also experienced in a very personal way!
21:34 10 Aug 18
I am so relieved i have found the perfect doctor for my senior father!! Dr. Patel is on it!!! Best pain care management i could ever ask for for my parent!! I am so greatful and my dad is on his way back to being active with my kids!! Thank you so much!!! Premier!
00:11 01 Aug 18
Dr Patel, Joseph Shankland PA-C, along with their Staff with Dennis, Dawn, Michelle, and Stephanie are second to none. They provide the most professional and courteous service I have received since I had my fourteen severe incidents & injuries...
18:09 25 Jul 18
I’ve been seeing Joseph Shankland for quite a while when he was at another practice. He’s really great. Easy to talk to and he really cares about his patients. This is a new pain center but everyone there worked together before and they are all great people. It’s friendly and compassionate. Highly recommend them to anyone in need of pain management
05:10 25 Jul 18
I truly enjoy being seen by Dr Patel. Him and his staff are extremely nice. You can tell that they care about their patients. They're not there just to make it quick check. When he ask you a question you can tell he is actually listening to you. He doesn't ask and then his eyes get all classy like oh goodness why didn't ask that question no he generally wants to know the answer to it. That is why would my Dr passed away I was more than happy to transfer to Dr Patel. I baked to have him as my Dr. You would be lucky to have him as your next Doctor.
16:54 20 Jul 18
Dr. Patel has been my Pain specialist for almost three years now. He implanted a spinal cord stimulator for me in 2017, which has changed my life. I now see Jospeh, who is his business partner in the new clinic. I would recommend them to anyone, and if suffering from severe pain, I higher recommended talking to them about a spinal cord stimulator. Everyone in their office are professional and friendly.
01:27 19 Jul 18
I don’t know what else to say but THANK GOD Dr. Patel and Joseph opened back up. I visited with another pain practice down south, waited 2 hours to see the doctor who spent less then 5 minutes with me. As soon as I heard these two were back, I cancelled all future appointments with the other practice. This is a doctor who listens, genuinely cares, and they do their best to help. Patient for life.
