Be careful! Reckless in prescribing a med. that needed to be carefully monitored. I ended up in the hospital with a toxic level (3x the max level). Once that was discovered through a blood test in the hospital, the med. dir. at the hospital would not let him prescribe anything w/o his consent. The fact that he's not affiliated with a hospital should cause you to question why. He became enraged at me several times when he thought I didn't do what he wanted me to do. I couldn't believe a doctor was shouting at me. He definitely has an anger problem - google Best v. Best. I liked him at first but after all of this I was scared of him and found someone else.

What sound does a duck make? What sound does a cash register make? Better like hearing them both from this guy! He is working on a restricted license - he can't prescribe controlled substances (per IDFPR), court records show he has a felony arrest for cocaine possession. I would give "0" stars - but the minimum is '1'. Good Luck!

I have been all over the Midwest and tried every treatment available for CRPS, a chronic treatment resistant pain disease. Nothing worked. Dr. Best put me into remission. He is brilliant! He does not give up or give in. He is focused and dedicated! I have seen him change lives one after another since I have been there. It is amazing. My journey through failed treatments has been blogged online, and this successful journey has been blogged as well. Make no mistake...this clinic is where people come when they are down to two options....try this or jump off of a bridge. This is for the most resistant of treatment resistant. And it works! I owe my life to Dr. Best. This is worth every penny and more. It is not a cure. It is a treatment. I am not "fixed" but I am better. I don't have words to express my gratitude. Please feel free to contact me with questions. I have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD) Gracie G Bagosy

Terrible!!! Didn't help us in fact may have hurt the problem. From we are told by our current doctors -- treatments may have even been not done properly

Dr. Best is rude, unethical and expensive. His use of SPECT scans for diagnosis is based on unproven scientific claims. Money trap, stay away.

Dr Best has helped me when nobody else could. I've had chronic depression my entire life and for the first time in I don't know how long, I feel happy. Depression is a nasty disease of mind and body...a systemic disease....and he gets people like me who are treatment resistant....His approach is to heal...not to pacify...He's brilliant and I have much respect for him. He's compassionate, empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. I would totally recommend him and the work he does. He helps a lot of people who are at their wits end. I know from personal experience.

Brilliant, fabulous doctor. Dr. Best made correct diagnosis before tests were administered. On most annual visits all my questions are not answered, but makes himself directly available via e-mail (how many M.D.s do this?). Also, gracious demaenor while patient processes. Open to alternative therapies if such treatment seems viable to him. As Dr. Best was recommended to us, our family feels honored to have been under his supervision.
