Like most people I have seen a lot of different doctors over the years, but with no exaggeration Dr Ruben Kalra is the most empathetic and caring doctor of all. He truly cares about treating my pain. He also “thinks outside the box” and is creative in the way that he approaches my chronic pain situation. I have had PRP injections, a spinal stimulator device, Botox injections, several tries with different meds, and all have worked in their own right. Also as a person who is easily stressed, Dr. Kalra is the calmest and most zen doctor I have ever met. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

Great experience! Relaxed, yet professional staff! Very knowledgeable doctors who also recommend meditation and other holistic approaches toward pain management. Refreshing! Have recommended PMC to friends and family!

To employ a cliché, Dr. Shinaman thinks "outside the box," in that his approach to back pain is multidimensional yet integrated...beyond opiates and beyond platitudes. I appreciate his exploration of alternative therapies.

Wonderful, cheerful staff. Doctor Longton is highly skilled and very kind.Facility is spotless. They bring me many warm blankets as it is COLD there. After treatment I am given a small snack of water or juice and crackers.

I was a patient of Dr. Edgar Celis and received excellent care from him until he left this practice last year. In the meantime, I have been attempting to receive statements for care with Dr. Celis to submit to my insurance company. To date, no receipts have been provided. I am also still receiving a bill for a date of service on 10/30/18 from Bass Medical billing that was paid on 10/30 at the time of the visit. Happy to resolve these issues, but no one answers the phone and there is no other way to send a message to this office.
