Dr. Joe H. Browder's Ratings
Dr browder started off acting like he wanted to be helpful in our case, but as soon as he got pressure from workers comp he turned tail and recinded everything he diagnosed and called me a liar. He has no ethics in my opinion and is more concerned about getting paid than truley helping his patients.
Dr. Joe H. Browder's response
Dr. Browder has long been recognized as one of the nation's leading pain management physicians and his top priority on a daily basis is to serve the needs of his patients. His ethical obligation toward patients is unwavering.

My experience with the staff have been fine. My visits for injections with Dr. Browder have been excellent, in fact hopefully, I want Dr. Browder to be the only physician to do the trigger point injections. Dr. takes time to talk with me and not be like other Doctors who rush through my appointments to hurry and leave the room.
was with Dr. Lucas then Dr. Browder for long time. Excellant for injections, however you will follow their contract to the letter which I understand. After 14 years was off count by 5 pills on two occasions having had an severe increase in my pain level. The only complaint I have is that I was basically scolded like a bad child from a nurse who saw me before the NP. She informed me that I would be p[laced under a disciplinary review for using up my drugs to soon She was in charge and let me know it. Whatever the laws and contracts may be we the patients are still human and should be treated in the proper manner. I do not feel this woman has ever been sick or in severe pain. one month later I was discharged due to my so called breaking the contract. This is a good clinic but the staff all remain at a distance and at times can be distant and rather cold . If you are in anyway sensitive or looking for a show of human contact with understanding this is not the place you should go.

I've been seeing PCET for a little over a year. The doctors and staff have, for the most part, been courteous and professional. Some are better listeners than others, and sometimes you get someone who, you can kind of tell, is just not having a great day. I don't mind this so much. I have not real great days myself, and have to hope I won't be judged too harshly for them. And I don't mind the drug tests or the nonmedical stuff I've been required to try, figuring as I do that anything that might helps is worth giving a try. But it's been a very slow process and the degree of pain relief and increased functionality I've gotten is so slight as to have me continuing to wonder if I made the right choice coming here. On one hand, their conservative approach reassures me that PCET is not likely to overmedicate me and won't be closed down; on the other, if this is as good as it's going to get, I'm not looking forward to having to live a long life. I've stayed with PCET this long because no pain treatment at all is not an option for me, because they accept my insurance, and because, though I personally haven't had much evidence of it, I know they've helped a lot of people and hope that eventually, maybe, they'll help me. But I do keep my eyes open for other clinics.
I have had problems with my back for years. I have been on the same medicine for years. I haven't had any pain meds because I am new to the area, took 2 months to get an appointment, to my amazement, I supplied empty med bottles, to prove what drug I was on, provided a drug test and listened to the PA. I was told I had to come back for a psychiatric visit, then after that, and only that, I would get another appointment to describe options. I have tried several options, Chiropractic, tens unit, spirals, and the hydrocortisone ininjections with no luck.. I hope he is better at managing pain than what I'm reading. I am not a Dr, so I will listen and it isn't a procedure that's been tried and failed, I am open to try it. Dr's need to realize, PAIN IS WHAT THE PATIENT SAYS IT IS....!!!!
I was happy with Dr. Browder when i went.. but after surgeries then my surgery1st visit back; they think your looking for prescription.. the ppl. That really need it dont get it they have trouble but the junkies have no problems.. that kills me.
I have known Dr.Browder since the late 80s previously working with him at Baptist Hospital & as his patient since 2002. He is a very caring, competent physician & I can tell you that he is not a drug dealer & never has he nor ever will do anything illegal!! Yes its true that you seldom see him at a office visit but he does have some very intelligent caring nurse practioners who are very helpful. Its true that there are the occasional drug test & everyone is treated the same where that goes! The government makes it mandatory to drug test! The staff in general are nice with the exception of one of the front office staff. This one lady is very uncaring & rude & needs to be doing some other job without public contact! Folks I sincerely believe dr. Browder is the best in pain management!
I had epidural injection from Dr. Browder on August 14, 2013. I had wonderful treatment from the start to finish of my appointment. I was never treated badly by any of the staff or doctor, just don't think I could have been cared for any better anywhere else. Would not hesitate to use this facility again.
