Rate Dr. Rick J. Gomez
Dr. Rick J. Gomez's Ratings
This doctor is no longer a problem as he has lost his medical license and the right to practice in Arizona after leaving a young female patient on life support after injecting her in the spinal area with a drug that was meant for intramuscular injection only because it contained neurotoxins. Apparently he had a long history of suppling controlled substances to drug addicts and of improperly using drugs and injecting patients repeatedly with drugs that could not help them. He was suppose to have rescusitating equipment on hand in case of a negative reaction and he did not. As a result a woman of 27 left his office unresponsive and with no pulse. Later she was mechanically resusitated but after 3 weeks left the hospital for a nursing home with no "significant" hope of meaningful improvement. Doctors like this should be in prison. He's a menace!

I cannot possibly leave a positive rating due to the reports submitted on his improper standard of care. There is no excuse that any Dr. can give on negligently harming, putting a patient in a coma, or even death of a patient because of the deviation from the standard of care that every patient deserves. I can only assume the ratings that have been listed come from individuals that judge a book by its cover. I approach finding a doctor just as a company would put a potential employee through a hiring process involving resume review, past work history, criminal check, medical history, drug screen, and a series of interviews. When choosing a Dr I recommend doing the same by researching any and all positive and negative findings. This Dr has on file a inexcusable negligent report that resulted in extreme damage to multiple patients. I suggest doing your research and actually caring about your health care and not just picking a Dr from a drop down list. Link to report in response TY.

Dr. Gomez is honestly the ONLY Dr. I have seen that has the knowledge and ability to effectively treat my joint pain. He is very hands-on, patient, and informative! I drive 45 minutes to see him after not being able to find a Dr that even comes CLOSE to being as effective as Dr. Gomez. His bedside manner is sincerely appreciated. He has helped me so much, I don't even take meds anymore and have only needed to go back for an occassional injection. HE IS THE BEST!!!

Dr. Gomez is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! He is kind, considerate, knowledgeable, and treats both my husband and I with much care and respect. He spends over an hour with us. I'm on 2 pain meds & 1 is a narcotic. He explains benefits/risks of titrating or changing meds. The commenter on 4/25 is unhappy because he/she didn't get his/her way. I'm a nurse and have dealt with many chronic pain patients. Some are very difficult to manage and don't realize what they are up against being on pain meds for a long time. Dr. Gomez explains everything and more at length; Your diagnosis, treatment options, medications, how they work, and has happily answered any questions we have had. I recommend that all chronic pain patient do some studying up on pain and the effects of narcotic pain medications on your own. We LOVE Dr. Gomez and his wonderful, caring staff! Don't mistake his UN-ENDING kindness for stupidity. He is well-qualified and a very brilliant doctor! Dave & DeNage Cagle

Dr. Gomez and his staff are great! They treat you with respect. Dr. Gomez goes in depth about his diagnosis & any medication he may prescibe for you so that you understand it and what is going on with your body. He does spend alot of time with you more than most doctors. He actually makes you feel like he cares about you. I don't get the feeling that money is all he cares about... obviously this is his business I don't think I saw anything that said non-profit anywhere so to judge a doctor for making money seems strange. I wonder if the person that wrote that rating tries to make as little as possible when he or she goes to work?? I recommend Dr. Gomez to anyone who lives with physical pain day in and day out. He will help you find out why and try to help you increase your quality of living.

This Doctor is amazing because he gives you more medication than a horse would take if it had cancer. Of-course you people love this doctor, He is like a drug dealer but legal. Did I mention he has his own Pharmacy he sends patients to? I'm sure he gets a nice cut from that Pharmacy, and to make matters worse, He billed my insurance 5,000 dollars for procedures he didn't even do! Be careful! many people have been hospitalized to his lack of knowledge about medication mixing and injections, One of which is apparently in a coma.I would highly suggest finding someone ethical, you might need to downgrade on the amount of medication your getting currently but at least you know your in professional hands of a doctor more ethically fit. Don't let his nice personable approach fool you! Trust me! when you leave his office him and his staff have to be "Gemini" because they have nothing good to say.It's all about the money with him and I'm sure the DEA is on his tail. BEWARE!!

Dr. Gomez is amazing. He is the most caring doctor I have ever had. He spends so much time with me. His treatments work. I would recommend him to anyone (and I have). He does get a little backed up with appointment but it is because he takes his time with his patients. He is definitely worth the wait.

This doctor is like an angel from heaven! It is hard to believe that anyone could be so fortunate to find a wonderful man like this! I can't say enough about him! He is kind, a good listener, knowledgeable, personable, compassionate, sympathetic, and the list goes on... My first appointment he spent 2 hours with me. I have never had a follow-up appointment where he spent less than 20 minutes sitting and talking to me and usually it is a half hour. Trust me, there is no other doctor like him on earth. He understands your pain...physical and emotional. I bless the day that we found him. He is an outstanding doctor and a Healer... We love you Dr Gomez! :)

Visited Dr. Gomez for the first time last week. My regular physician no longer accepts my insurance. I was so pleasantly surprised. The office is newer and patient records are computerized. The staff was very friendly as was the doctor. He actually spent more than two minutes with me. I highly recommend this practice.
