Dr. Chitta Thiagarajah's Ratings
One of the best doctors I have seen. He is very thorough and compassionate.. But he never tolerates people who demand narcotics. That is why some people do not like him. i have had only one Epidural in 3 years. It was very effective.
Run for the hills. The only good thing about this office is Danny Jones and the MA Diana. Dr. This thinks of nothing but money. If you're willing to get the shots, then you'll be free to have all the pain medication you want so he can keep you and your money coming in. If you're not willing, they'll find a way to make you want to leave the office. Cut down your medications, etc. Don't need to take my word for it though, it's pretty obvious if you look close enough ;) Good luck!
The PA Danny Jones was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and caring. The staff at the front is very short talk and is not very friendly. But The staff in the back is patient and compassionate young ladies, very helpful. I'm very happy with the way my Pain has been managed. Dr. Thia completely cuts my Pain with his Injections. I'm very pleased with their care.
I went to this office on December 12, 2012 for a visit to be meds for a condition that I’ve had for years. I paid $100 and all I received was a 15 minute 3rd degree interrogation. I’m supposed to deploy to Afghanistan, I can no longer deploy because I know what kind of conditions from my previous 18 months there in a war zone and I need to manage the pain. I asked for a refund of the $100 cash and they said NO. This is one decorated Gulf War Veteran still in pain. Through their efforts to try and screen out the people that misuse prescription pain medication from true patients, they have allowed a legitimate pain sufferer, veteran to go on suffering without being prescribed. They have forced me to cancel my deployment to Afghanistan. I’d advise you seek help elsewhere as they will most likely treat you as guilty and a misuser of pain meds versus trying to understand your legitimate situation. I understand their right to perscribe or not to but to keep my $100 for doing nothing?
I have heard a lot of Bad stories about Dr Thia and his staff but I have to disagree. I have been seeing him and his nurse pa for a year and a half and they are always very helpful! Nice and makes sure my back is pain free. I love Berlin and hope they never let her go! But she deserves a raise!!
I worked for Dr. Thia, you have to understand if you have the big money insurance he will schedule you every 3 months like clock work for an outpatient procedure(the spinal tap) and give you a months worth of medication so he can get paid for office visits between the 3 month injections. if you have like medical he will do a spinal injection in the officed and gove you 90 days worth of meds so you don't have a reason to return for 3 months ( thats because medi-Cal does not pay as much) His staff which I was a member of shortly is all interns from the medical college down the street. No experience, if they are lucky and cute they may get to input names and #s in the computer. The MA's in the back office are the "pretty" ones. Ben has no Proffesionalism as a manager at all. It is really messed up how that office is ran and how they treat patients. So be ready for your insurance to be drained of thousands of dollars
Very Helpful..always does the right testing and reespects the fact that I cannot recieve injections due to the type of illness I have. I have no problem with anyone in his office. They are all very nice and the ones that complain that I have seen usually are in a hurry and have no patience. I will continue to see him and his PA at this office.
