Dr Schrattenholzer always provides the highest level of care and concern during my appointments. He fully went over the results of some x-rays he had ordered for me and answered all my questions pertaining to this. He also ordered a new prescription for me that I believed would work better than one I was currently using.

Dr Schrattenholzer gave me hope for relief from a painful condition that I have been dealing with for years. he had a new plan of care to implement. he has also done steroid injections and ablation on my lower back in the past. he is always very polite, caring, thoughtful in his practice and communicates well. He also is very skilled in his practice. I have seen him on several occasions and have a follow up appointment in September. I am grateful for his care and expertise.

This provider comes to the pt. with rigid preconceived ideas of tx that are not universally embraced. He does not really listen to his pts., he had decided what he will & won't do a seeing a pt., regardless of what the pt. needs or wants. The influence over other providers is considerable.

Dr schrattenholzer's empathy and willingness to consider alternative answer for treatment to his suggestion has become less over the years I've been seeing him. He gives impression I am not as important of a patient as when I started with him years ago. Only being able to see him no more often than every 3 months even if I have a medical emergency is growing less and less acceptable, and my medical situation as of late makes that more necessary now than in past years.

I feel very close to my doctor and feel that he truly is trying to make my life more meaningful and works with me to be all that I can be under my circumstances. he follows the guidelines that are given him and always try's to work out my predicaments with me. I'm very greatful for him. He really is truly a great caring doctor. there are not many like him. I'm not just another problem person I'm a human being. that means sooo much to me.

Wait time in patient room after nurse/MA check in was a little longer than normal, but not a huge deal. As for the facility/building. The disabled parking on the roof is uncovered, which is awful for when the weather is bad. Disabled people move the slowest and if it's raining, that means they're going to get drenched. Who thought this was a good idea? Disabled parking spots should be near the elevators undercover and protected from the harsh weather elements.

I have been dealing with back pain since having numerous back surgeries beginning in 2000. Dr Schrattenholzer is by far the most knowledgeable pain management specialist I have seen, and I've seen multiple specialist regarding my back pain. He explained various pain medications and how he felt they would specifically help me. He developed a trial to see what medication would best reduce my back pain and we were able to find pain medication that has greatly reduced my back pain. I've only seen Dr Schrattenholzer twice but during those times he listened to my questions and answered them in a way that I could easily understand. He also seemed to genuinely care about my pain level and wanted to select a course of action that would manage it. I would highly recommend him to family, friends and anyone who is trying to manage their chronic pain.

Dr. Schrattenholzer managed treatment for pain for back, neck, spine. He always very concerned, thorough in reviewing all methods to live a minimal pain free life. He changed my life once I went to him. Before I felt depressed and no confidence... He validated me and what I was dealing with. Helped with various exercises, methods to help. Very KIND man! & great doctor.

Dr Schrattenholzer is my pain specialist. He has been treating my chronic back pain due to arthritis. That pain and some additional issues have returned. Dr. Schrattenholzer is the best. He always listens to me and examines me and listens to me again. He has helped me in the past, and I am sure he will do so this time. He keeps me informed on everything that is going on and thoroughly explains any procedures he wants to do and the outcome he hopes to achieve. He takes into account my thoughts and feelings and is always sure to be aware of what I think and feel. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family if the need arose.

Dr. Thomas is a compassionate doctor and is as empathetic as he knows how to be. I realize that there are constraints involved that he adheres to, but I also believe that he should be more aggressive in trying to help his patients find the relief that they need to live more fulfilling lives.
