Taking patient care personally

Patient Testimonials

  • I have suffered from "low back" problems for years. I never had considered pain management. I'm so glad someone recommended Addison Pain Management to me. I had the number saved in my phone for over a year.  My only regret is I didn't use it sooner.  Dr. Peirsol is amazing! She has a wonderful bedside manner and makes you feel very comfortable. She explained everything in great detail to me regarding my treatment plan. She kept in touch and followed up with me every step of the way. She got me going with physical therapy and I can say for the first time in years I feel the best I've felt physically. I thought I would have to be in pain forever and just deal with it. I would highly recommend this office if you are in any type of pain!!!  Also they have the very best office staff I have ever encountered. Everyone is very professional, very courteous, and very good looking!!!
  • I have complete trust in Addison Pain Management.  Two years ago I was hospitalized with severe back pain.  I went through physical therapy, but Dr. Knutson and his amazing staff got me walking again.  They made sure I was ready for the long days of teaching and could hold my new grandchild.  I live in Bedford, but they are worth the drive.  Thank you is not enough for my sincere appreciation.
  • I've been coming here for about a year due to various spinal issues.  The office looks great, the staff is always friendly, and the doctors are some of the best I've ever met in my life.  If you have ANY issues with pain, whatever the source, these guys are worth going out of your way for (though they're right off Dallas North Tollway, so you may not need to go out of your way at all).
  • I truly appreciate each and every person who works here, from the receptionist to the nurses to the doctors. I herniated two discs in November (L4-S1) in the same spot that I had back surgery 5 years ago. I staggered into the waiting room and could only lay on the floor, in so much pain I could barely breath, much less converse. Sylvia and her entire staff were kind, sweet, patient and caring. I agree with the previous reviewer- I have never had a doctor willing to call me as a follow up. I went through three rounds of steroid shots, as well as a rhizotomy, and each time she called both before AND after! She could have simply dumped some pain meds into me and scheduled a back surgery; instead, she looked my wife dead in the eye (I was still on the floor) and said something to the effect of "we will do surgery when we have no other options left." A doctor willing to do anything for a patient besides send them to a hospital for $$$$ is A+++ in my book.
  • I can't begin to describe the incredible experience I had at Addison Pain Management. The facility was the cleanest medical facility I have ever seen. Dr. Peirsol was just absolutely fabulous! She did everything to make me comfortable and understand what was going on. You could see that she genuinely cared and would do anything needed to help me get better. I felt like I was in the best hands from beginning to end and am so thankful for everything she did to help me! There are no words that describe how amazing this team is!
  • I love this place. I have received nothing but compassion from every single doctor, staff, and surgical staff. They are the best in the business in my opinion. I've been coming here for 6 months and have zero issues. I seriously love this place and it has finally, after years of pain, significantly improved my back pain as well as cervical. Way to go APM!
  • I've been going to pain management clinics/orthopedic and spine surgeons for roughly 10 years. I've been to maybe 10-20 from Houston, to Austin, San Antonio and Dallas. Addison Pain Management was the best experience of customer service and genuine care for my recovery I've ever experienced, even fresh off a couple of harsh spinal surgeries. The doctor I saw gave me multiple solutions on what my next steps could be, and even went over possible payment methods and ways to go around having to pay a ton of money for rounds of injections. I almost gave up on trying to find a good doctor and almost didn't go in to this appt because so many doctors look at my file and are quick to throw a RX at me and not try different alternatives for PAIN MANAGEMENT ! She talked with me for about 40 min and adjusted my back/ribs and told me she would personally call to check on me in a few days. Even the ladies at the front were amazing. All very friendly. I see myself coming here for a long time. I would recommend EVERYONE to at least try this place once.
  • Great pain management office. The nurses and doctors are VERY attentive to how the patient feels. I'm only 20 years old and have full arthritis in both knees. Dr. Sylvia put me through and recommended the same exact procedures she went through to help dull my pain and get me back into better shape. Dr. Sylvia is also the only doctor I've ever had that has called me to see how I was after a procedure. I've never met medical professionals like this lot. I highly recommend you see them! Thank you, guys
  • To say they care is an understatement! This is by far the best facility and doctor office I have ever been to. The wait isn't long but even if it is, the level of care that they provide is worth it. I have gone here for terrible migraines that I've suffered over a decade with and recently a pretty bad injury that has caused me to not work. I trust them completely, they even personally follow up with you to ensure you are doing well. I cant go on enough about this place! Don't waste your money or time anywhere else!
  • Best staff, best doctors. Very caring. I never have to wait very long, always a reasonable wait. They do what they say they will do, unlike a lot of doctor's offices I've been to, when they say they will call in your prescription they do it that day, not a day later. I've told buddies of mine that have had injuries and chronic pain to come here. I've never been to a doctor's office where I'm treated this well, I'm a person not a number here. Love everyone at Addison Pain Management. They have help me more than surgeons I've seen.
  • I've gone to Dr. East since 2007 with great results. He truly cares about his patients and I recognize the positive impact his skills have on the quality of my life. The staff exhibits the same level of professionalism and caring.
