I suggest, if at all possible, avoid being a patient here. Constantly have my appointments cancelled/rescheduled. Get the run around constantly. Don't get reminders about appointments, constantly. Calls are not returned constantly. Rather disappointed.
Careful going to this clinic. They are very shady about their billing. they charge a hidden $150 facility fee for every 15 minutes you spend in a room. They do not tell you this upfront, and the fee is not covered by most insurances. Big corporation... big scam.
I see Dr. Steven Stanos here at this Swedish clinic. He is very respectful and a wonderful listener. He is very aware of my past and present health records. He researches his information before giving me instructions on what he would like me to do for my chronic pain issues. I would definetely recommend him to anyone looking for a pain services provider doctor. He also treats me as an equal when dealing with me at my monthly appointments. He cares about my health and well being in general. I LOVE THIS DOCTOR!!!!! He helps me with my emotional aspects of my chronic pain issues. Wonderful experiences every time I have visited him!!!!
I made a two hour drive to the clinic very hopeful about what they could do for me. Only to be told ANY medications for my back should go threw my primary care physician. So pretty much lets have two clinics who don't communicate with each other. That are across the state treat me for the same problem. I can only see a bunch of problems that would arise with that type of logic. If you expect something else besides expensive proceedures they can bill insurance for I wouldn't bother with this clinic.
The Swedish Pain Clinic actually helps people. This place is awesome! All done without Opiods!!!!
