I had my first appointment with referred pain specialist Dr Tom ( only because don't remember last name) even though we just met he " listens" to his pt then reviewed options regarding with what I expressed has for my first time over the last year has been at worst intolerable unbearable nerve pain in my hands following dx of diabetic neuropathy and psoriatic arthritis hands / feet and lower back, however a year ago I had shingles that I didn't get treated that led to the pain level I stated above Frankly l at times have been so defeated. I believe this Dr and I will do great I feel very lucky that Dr demonstrates a compassionate, and upfront and honest approach..

I really appreciate the depth of explanation he gave me. I am mostly thankful for the fact he made me feel like I was listened to and he addressed the symptoms and problems I was dealing with. He didn't gloss over what I was telling him or dismissing my pain.

Dr. Schrattenholzer is incredibly compassionate with patients who have major pain issues, patients that may be cranky or frustrated because of pain. He's brilliant yet extremely personable. Just a great great guy. Whenever I hear his name mentioned, whether by a patient or medical professional, people always become enthusiastic and say something on the order of "he's the best"-and they're right.

There doesn't seem to be any real help for arthritis/psoriasis. I forgot to ask if anyone is researching substances that could be injected into the degenerating bone to solidify it.

Dr. Schrattenholzer is a wonderful doctor, however when I email him through MyHealth, it takes him 7-10 days to respond to my email or to my calls, even if I am in a severe amount of pain.

Appointment making was difficult & time consuming. Appointments are booked out fairly far. I was only able to get in due to a cancelation.

As I commented earlier. I don't appreciate my office visit being cut short because some other doctor calls my doctor. Why is is they take precedent over me? I'm the one who is physically there! I was just left sitting there - finally left the room & the nurse ushered me back in & than gave me my paperwork! Not good!

Was he trying to minimize my pain by telling me that everyone experiences pain from "overdoing it"? Unclear as to the purpose of this comment. I believe my pain to be way more painful than "overdoing it".

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.
