I have been a patient of Dr. Tom's for almost 10 years now. He & the rest of the staff have always been very caring & compassionate. They always ask about my family issues as well as mine. I'm so very glad that I was able to find such a great place/people to help with my severe pain issues. Hopefully they/he never closes office!!

The only discrepancy I noticed is my list of prescriptions. I told the medical assistant what medications I am no longer taking and when I left the office, my after visit summary still showed medications that I am not taking. They were not removed from the list.

When one schedules a 20 minute appointment I would expect the Dr to spend at least 15 min.

I've been seeing Dr Schrattenholzer for the past 8 months for pain management. Dr Schrattenholzer is by far the best pain management specialist I have seen in the past 20 years for my back pain. He listens to every concern I have and has put me on a pain medicine regime that has greatly reduced the amount of pain I have in my back. I would wholeheartedly endorse Dr Schrattenholzer to anyone who is seeking pain management.

This doctor should not practice medicine. I was told about options but there was only one. what was offered should not be used for that purpose for which I came in. it should be made clear that does doctor problem with prescribing pain medication that has worked for a patient for Year's. telling a patient that taking the medication that has been working, is what is causing the problem and making the pain worse it's pretty ignorant. I plan on warning all to stay away from this Clinic

This provider is the only one that actually found a pain medication that works for me. I have tried most meds, but trouble absorbing meds is a problem for me so he started me on a sublingual drug. It is working for me. I am very happy having pain relief and it makes life a little easier. I hope it continues to work.

while provider was on vacation I was told those covering for him could not change my medications and I would have to wait for his return to attain pain relief. I didn't feel that was supportive.

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.

This visit was perfect compared to my last visits. The last visits there, the nurse treated me like I was a junkie there for my fix!

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.

He spends more time with other patients & little time with me. He tries to catch up his schedule by spending a little time with me & long with others.
