Ratings for Dr. Thomas G. Stauss
I have been a patient of Dr Stauss for many years. I have been dealing with back problems since 1984. I have had 10 back surgeries and have residual nerve pain and other issues as a result of the surgeries. Dr Stauss did not just hand out a bunch a meds and call it a day. He heard the desperation in my voice and offered options besides just masking the pain with narcotics. This was the start on the road to many different procedures. He never gave up on me or said “Judy deal with or live with it”. His nurse Michelle and all the staff have been nothing less than compassionate and understanding to my needs also. I hope they take the time to read these reviews so they know just how much they are appreciated and how grateful I and others are for what they do.
don't become their experiment, if they fail they give up on you and treat you as a junkie! Terrible office staff, bad attitudes towards patients in pain, they think all you want is more drugs when all you want is them to follow through with their pain plan for you. they get you addicted then at their mercy like they're God or something!
I was very happy with the care I received at APM. Dr. Stauss was very professional. It was nice to go to a doctor who knew what was going on with my condition and was willing to try all options. I was so excited to go to a doctor who knew the type of pain I was feeling and now I am on the road to recovery. I am feeling very positive that my future will soon be pain free.
I LOVE DR. STAUSS!!! HE GAVE ME MY LIFE BACK AND HELPED GET RID OF ALL OF MY BACK PAIN THAT I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING WITH FOR YEARS, AND YEARS!!! I was hit by a car when I was 16 and I am 46 now and Dr Stauss has always listened to me and worked very had to find an answer to my pain troubles. He is an excellent doctor and very sympathetic to your troubles!!! Even his staff was very caring and helpful to me. Dr Stauss put a nerostimulator in my back and it really took care of 90% of my nerve pain!!! When the FDA said it was ok, he told me that he could add a could lead for my lower back pain, and I decided to go ahead with it.....BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!!!!!! I would tell anyone to go and see Dr Stauss in order to help them with their pain!!! BEST decision that I ever made having him for my doctor and he is a great listener and very helpful, I now have my life back and most of my back pain is gone so I can TRULY LIVE MY LIFE!!!!!!
I am one of Dr Stauss"s first pain pump patients. In 2004 Dr. Stauss gave me back my life. From the very first contact through every proceure, He has provided first class care. He is extremly knowledgeable medically and very compassionate at every contact. He has gone above and beyond his duty on my behalf at every opportunity. Yep...he's become my super hero!
The staff will not take message for Dr. and are disrespectful They try to play Dr. over phone when this is not the person I want giving me advice about my care. Will not relay concerns to Dr. and will make an appt. only. I thought being private not one of the big guys I would NOT being getting treated like I called a clinic where the patients are treated as if they are on a conveyor belt. I was WRONG...given the treatment staff. Phone staff liasons are not considerate, compasionate or helpful because afterall we as patients are at their mercy and were are not a person just a voice on the other line. What ever happened to the human side of healthcare? :(
Dr. Stauss is an excelent pain management doctor. He does not make you feel like a junkie like most doctors do when you try to seek relief for chronic pain. The office is usualy realy backed up, sometimes 1 to 1.5 hours past appointment to get called but as anyone with cronic pain knows you can't just go to any doctor and expect to get reasonable compassionate care for treating chronic pain.
Dr Stuass is simply the best pain specialist i have ever had the mis-fortune of having to go see. He "listens", & He "cares" about his patients (two qualities rarely seen in in the medical field anymore. He returns calls promptly & doesn't make you feel like your a drug seeker (another rarity in the medical profession)
