I can't speak highly enough about the staff at pain and spine specialist in Washington PA.Everyone I had contact with from the receptionist,nurse,to my doctor were exceptional.they were professional,kind, knowledgeable,and I felt as if they truly wanted nothing but to help me be as comfortable as possible while recovering fr my spinal was hands down my best experience with any medical professionals I've ever had.

Best Pain Management I have been to in years. The entire staff seems to actually care! My doctor not only cared about managing my care but investigating why I was in pain! I have several severe chronic issues. This place was great from my very first appointment! I don't usually give 5 stars but they deserve it! Pain mngmnt has been a struggle for a few years now. They addressed my concerns and issues day one!!

In office visit was great but calling the office for any reason, whether it's for appointments or question, it's impossible. Nobody picks up the phone no matter what time you just leave a voice message and hope for the best. A little inconvenient but they do call back

I have had nothing but wonderful experiences since beginning treatment at PASS. Everyone - receptionists, nurses, and my nurse practitioner Isaac have been terrific, good listeners and really pay attention to my overall health. Isaac had me talk to Dr. Rao about a procedure I was going to have, and Dr. Rao explained it very clearly, answered my questions and allayed my fears. I just had the procedure done yesterday by Dr. B and it was quick and not uncomfortable. I feel I am finally in good hands at PASS and that my quality of life is the best it can be. /Update on 1/4/2022 - I would like to add that my nurse practitioner, Ester, is a wonderful addition to PASS for me. She listens and responds to any concerns I have and is very respectful and responsive about those concerns. I feel a great deal of mutual trust and respect from her, and always leave the office feeling that she is looking out for me and providing me the best “quality of life” measures that she can. I feel safe and well-treated as one of her patients.

I really appreciate the time they give you and they listen to what I need to say. Their whole team are the best!! Merry Christmas!

Everyone that I have had any contact with from the receptionists to the assistants to the doctors have been pleasant to talk to. They are helpful, knowledgeable and caring. It's hard to find a doctor where the entire staff is such a pleasure to interact with. I would recommend them to anyone that has chronic pain.

I would like to first say that my experience with the staff at Pain and Spine Specialist of Maryland ~Rockville did not start on the day of my visit. It started the day I called to schedule the appointment. After transitioning from a pain and spine doctor in Columbia, MD; in which I had an unfavorable experience, the intake staff member at Pain and Spine Specialist made the scheduling a breeze. They were able to get me in within a week. I have been in so much pain due to a car accident in June 2021. With ongoing treatments from chiropractors, physical therapy, and the initial spine doctor; my body had begun to feel increasing pain. I needed relief. Needless to say, I found everything I've been needing at the Pain and Spine Specialist of Maryland.The entire staff was friendly and empathetic to my plight. From the front to the back. Dr. John was very thorough and informative. He listened and gave me options without dismissing my feelings and concerns. He actually took the time with me and answered me and my husband's questions and made sure he met my needs. Although this was my initial visit, I can honestly say that it was the most impressive in comparison to the 3 visits I'd had elsewhere. I did not leave the office crying because I felt like a number. However, I left that office today feeling hopeful and as much as I was in pain, the staff sent me off with a smile on my face and a reasonable plan of action for my treatment. Thank you all so much for your professionalism andcare! It means so much to me and my hubby.

The staff was very professional but friendly. They listened to me, they clearly wanted to help me manage my pain. This is very refreshing after so much time dealing with most of the medical professionals who cannot relate at all to a chronic pain issue.

Me & my wife just recently started going here. We've had 2 visits so far & each time was pleasant. Dr. John treats us both. Me for back issues & my wife for back & neck issues. He explains everything & actually listens to us when we have questions about our care. They don't try to push things on you that haven't worked in the past like injections. He asked what has worked in the past in order to be able to function on a daily basis & set up our care to where we were comfortable. Staff is wonderful & the place is very clean. Also, even tho we've only been here twice for appointments they are on time & haven't had to wait to be seen. The last place we were going to was never on time & the Dr there pushed things on us that didn't work before & we weren't comfortable with & after voicing our concerns he acted like he knew what was best & didn't want to hear from us about what had worked in the past. None of that at PASS!! They actually listen to the patient & that is almost unheard of these days.

Alley the scheduling person was incredible. I was in so much pain , she was patient and had empathy , she got an appointment for me the next day! Dr Rao was awesome! He listened to my issues and was very understanding and treated with the appropriate injections and meds to help healThe last place couldn’t answer the phones and got disconnected after a ridiculous message 3 times in a row. Glad I found this pain/ spine management practice!

I see Dr Altman. He is very thorough. He actually listens which is rare. They don't just push pills either. They will help manage your pain with pain meds (if needed) but they will also give you many other options that are non narcotic meds such as braces creams physical therapy etc. He will run diagnostic tests, go over everything and point you in the right direction. I would recommend this doctor, this office for sure.

My first visit to this office was the best experience ever. From the moment I walked in, everyone was so kind and smiled. I was so comfortable with speaking to the staff. They were all very nice and showed concern. The staff answered all my questions and I didn’t feel like I was burdening them. They answered with pleasure. Dr. B is beyond amazing. He came in already knowing most of my history because of a great Medical Tech and him reviewing paperwork that I brought. My overall experience was wonderful. I would recommend this practice to anyone.

I have gone to the Pellis Rd Greensburg Office for years. Unfortunately, Dr. Ghandi moved to Connellsville and Jeremiah is only a PA and I dont like him near as well. I went to Connellsville and couldnt be happier. I have tried for over 9 months to get my hospitalization to pay for my pain meds to no avail. And I never received my MRI authorization for over 3 months. 1 visit and my pain meds are going through my insurance and my MRIs can be scheduled. Took them 24hrs. I am sold on this office. So worth the extra 10 minute drive. Thank you Pain and Spine!

The staff is great and everyone is really friendly and you are seen quickly. The only downfall is the office is really hard to get a hold of and no one calls you back.
The wait for my first visit was longer than I would have liked. Everyone there was very nice, to the point and professional. I hate changing doctor's, but I felt very comfortable there

This office is one if a kindWhen you go in for appt you always feel welcome. Not like a # and rushed through like they just want your $My Dr is awesome(i have had a total of 4 injections from other Doctors that I've seen in the past 2 yrs due to an auto accident)(Seems all other doctors want to do is give you injections )(Seems it's always about the $)Except for this office)My Doctor took the time to listen to me about how i felt about the injectionAnd the fact that they hadn't helped up to this pointI told him i really didn't want to be stuck anymore as i felt like a pin cushion from the other DoctorsHe didn't push me to have any more inhectionsHe is truly the best Doctor i think I've seenSince my auto accident 2 yrs agoOther than my SurgeonI LOVE LOVE LOVE this PRACTICE

My wait was not long. The receptionist was very courtios. The gal who took my vitals was very pleasant and nice to chat with! The wait after the vitals was 30 min.... The meeting with the Doc went...ok but i feel i need a slight increase in my dosage and he wasnt for it... I am getting about a 50% decrease in my pain level.
22:32 18 May 21
The entire staff from the folks at the front desk to the Nurse, to the Physicians Assistant to the scribe that records the visit for the doctor(great idea so the Doctor can focus on the patient!!) to the technician that does tests to the Doctor are amazing!! very caring, they take whatever time is required to fully grasp and understand the patients unique problem(s)/issues and develop a treatment plan based on individual needs while taking into account what failed in the past. i highly recommend these folks, 100% A+++ all the way, smart professional staff and just amazing doctor. Dr. Badarunath is one of the most through, professional and caring medical professionals that i have meet in the last 30 years!!! This is the place to go if you want help in coping with cronic issues. and the fact that they take most insurance is just icing on the cake! thank you Pain and Spine Specialists of Maryland of Frederick!

Dr.Rao,Is a kind and gentle physician. His care and compassion is beyond words. I was nervous, and reluctant at first, but he relieved my pain in an impressive and timely manner. I did not realize how much pain I was experiencing until after the procedure.I have the up most respect for this Dr. Raul, his gift and his skill. I would highly recommend Dr.Raul to anyone who is suffering with lower back pain. I feel normal again. 😊Thank you Dr. Raul

I have had great experiences with Dr Rao, Dr B, Lindsay, and Dr Bill and their nurses. I have the utmost respect for these providers, always kind and considerate, always great communication. I currently see Dr Bill on a regular basis after Lindsay left and I cannot say enough POSITIVE comments about him. He listens, understands my questions and concerns, always takes the time needed to work out any and all of my issues or concerns. He brings the utmost professionalism to each and every one of my appointments. Thank you Dr Bill for your knowledge and professionalism at each of my appointments. In addition, I love the staff at the Frederick location where I am seen. They are friendly and courteous at each visit, from the time I walk in to the time I leave.I wish we could communicate by phone directly with the office we are seen at though.It is a bit stressful sometimes to communicate with an office that you are not regularly seen at, although I understand every business has procedures and this is their procedure when you need to call for a question or concern. I will commend the ladies that answer the phone for being professional. Thank you for all you do at PASS, most employees are very kind and helpful and it is appreciated. Thank you DR BILL AND STAFF, at Frederick, YOUR AWESOME.

I have to say I was diagnosed with lupus close to 20 years ago. My doctor from Pittsburgh retired. I was having a hard time finding a doctor that understood my unique case. Everybody's different everybody's needs are different everybody's answers are different. Everyone in the office that I have dealt with personally have all been simply wonderful they treat me like a human being, like a patient. Words cannot express the gratitude that I have from the pain and spine specialist they helped me get back my quality of life! They are simply wonderful and they listen to you.
19:19 25 Apr 21
I like Pain and Spine. The staff are very nice. Your usually in and out pretty quick unless you need to take time out to discuss things with the doctor in which they do take the time to talk to you. They are more then willing to discuss different options if something is not working for you.... I have had other Dr's that would refuse to discuss changes. I plan on staying with Pain & Spine. I have no reason to switch to anyone else.

I love Dr. Brinda. She spends the time needed to talk and explain everything. But, when your in pain. Sometimes it hard to wait in a crowded room because you know she doesn’t rush with the patient. Her due diligence makes you feel like your the only one that matter.I would have put 5 stars if it wasn’t a 45 minutes just to get to a room

I have now been with Dr. Rao for 13 years. He is the most caring Doctor I have ever been to! Dr. Rao makes you feel very comfortable at all times. I would not want to go to any other Doctor. Now I go to the Hagerstown location, everyone is very nice and kind! They make u feel very comfortable.

Everyone is very friendly and helpful just love Dr Olegario very good doctor and good bedside manners. Dr O explains everything and is very knowledgeable would recommend him to anyone. Just wish the service would help with the amount of fee they charge for drug screening tests and send them to a UPMC approved facility. Thank you
01:32 31 Mar 21
I can't say enough good things about Dr Rao , when no one else could tell me what was causing my back pain he helped me find out what the issue was . He is patient and extremely knowledgeable and very good at what he does ! I am not surprised that all his staff are kind , caring and patient in their quest to help me have a better quality of life. I must add this office is very responsible in the care they provide to every patient who comes thru their door !

Dr Jeremiah Altman is one of the best doctors I have ever had to deal with! He is caring, understanding, and will sit with you for as long as it takes to answer your questions. I would recommend pain and spine specialists, to anyone that is having chronic pain. There are so many procedures that they have nowadays that you no longer have to rely on pain medication ❤️

I originally saw Dr Hites who has moved to the Connellsville office. He was AMAZING to say the least. Then I went to Dr Altman for a short period who I also liked, but he is always in a hurry and didnt listen to what I had to say about my pain. Regardless, he is a very good Dr and always made sure I had meds for pain. I see Dr Gandhi now....WOW! He is AWESOME! Not only does he listen, he sits down and talks to you instead of hovering at the door like you are a leper which is RARE! Always answers my questions and concerns, doesnt just throw pills at it. He actually runs tests to find out what is going on and how he can help. Getting medicatiin is never a problem and if you need to get your meds changed he is on top of it.Dr Roa is WONDERFUL! Always takes his time when doing injections and procedures, personable and sympathetic to your needs. If you are looking for a pain Dr, you cant go wrong with any of the Drs. The staff is the absolute best. Friendly, helpful and extremely nice to all of their patients.My only complaint is too many people in the waiting room which means social distancing isnt always possible. Sometimes, there is not enough seating. That said, in the Greensburg office, I rarely need to wait long before I am seen. They are a great team the functiins as a well oiled machine!
Dawn C.
20:25 02 Mar 21
Absolutely love it here. There is no waiting. Appointments are on time. Dr. Olegario takes the time to explain all procedures that will be done and listens to any concerns you may have. And I can't say enough for my girls in the office!!! Everyone is always so pleasant!!!

They were very kind and understanding.. the doctor will do what he can to help you and I didn't feel judged or anything because I was trying to get help for my back pain. I had a very pleasant experience there to my surprise honestly. I would recommend this office to anyone who experiences severe pain.
Camila L.
14:13 21 Jan 21
Every experience I have had at Pain and Spine Specialists of MD has been exceptional! I brought my dad a few years ago for knee pain and Dr. Rao took his time to explain the treatment plan and get him a compounded pain cream that was just right for my Dad's pain. Before I knew it, my Dad was back to having the same quality of life as before his pain took over. The staff is so friendly at the Elkridge location and the surgery center makes you feel comfortable when you are going in for a procedure. I highly recommend PASS to anyone in pain!!

I had been feeling ick and had a fever. I switched to a virtual appointment and was approved. It was wonderful getting to chat and talk about my concerns just as if I was there. Seamless did guys. Their fire accomplising a seamless andceasy way to be seen if Covid is around. (Which, btw, it wass, I tested Covid positive last night) . Wear masks and be careful.
Brianna E.
20:53 20 Jan 21
Everyone is so friendly! It was nice to have a Dr listen to me for once!I was very nervous about my procedure & everyone there explained everything to me in a way I could understand. They made me feel comfortable & get through the procedure with ease!

My experiences have been great with all the doctors I seen Dr.Hites, Jeremiah, and Nishant Rao, MD. They have help me get through my tough health situations. Recently, I was assigned an physician assistant and was was reluctant we to try something different medication wise, but here is what happened. I have certain allergies to gabapentin medication and recently had an appointment and I was put on a lyrica medication. I started to go into small seizures and sweating and these incidents started to increase until I used my EpiPen later on that evening in the 24th of November. I hope my treatment improves.

I just recently a few months ago started going to their office the bedside manner of all of the staff there is beyond anything I could have imagined particularly at the difficult time in my life when navigating pain was such an issue they have some compassion they have shown me love they have shown me dedication and most importantly they treat me like a person and not a patient or number I think I value that more than anything. Dr. Gandhi I just can't. No words to explain how grateful I am for him I had almost a broken ankle and recently I'm due to the dismiss from my heart medicine I broke my wrist and so they've been with me the whole step of the way they are committed to improving my quality of life I would suggest them to anybody

I have struggled with Drs 14 years.Set back in time by a motorcycle accident.No one would consider what I was going through. The amount of “Games” I have tried to play to find an understanding Dr.......Then I found the Pain and Spine Specialest.The Nurses were Great And then another Dr came through the Door??? WOW I could tell he took the time to read my chart. His first words.You have been through a lot .He understood he really understood. So kind very professional.My only regret? I didn’t find them sooner. All I can say is. If you need help and your Dr doesn’t understand. Call Pain and Spine you will wake up the next day thinking how grateful you areThe Next Day

Dr. Ghandi did more for me in 2 months then the previous clinic I was at for 10 months. I like the fact that I see him and not some young helper that doesn't have a clue about chronic pain and all the problems I have and what I'm going through!

The doctors and nurses are very nice and personable. Wait times are not long, not even during COVID. I had to look for a long time for a physician willing to treat my condition before I found PASS and I have never had any problems since. I fully recommend them for any pain condition you might have. They do not judge patients who are suffering from chronic pain. You'll get great care here.

The staff was very nice. Dr Rao was to the point and made my situation feel like I was the only person he was concentrating on during my visit. Spine and Pain so far has made me feel like a person not just a number like other pain management practices.

I’ve only been here one time so far. An intake appointment. Met with Dr Gandhi for my first visit. He said he can help me. Was very patient and supportive. My extensive medical problems were discussed. He agrees it will take so time to find the right type of treatment to help me. I haven’t met anyone else yet. I look forward to getting to know everyone. I’ll extent this review once get more info.

Dr. Roa is such an amazing doctor! During my first visit he never tried to rush through my appt., he genuinely listened to all my concerns and then took his time to explain to me in detail all his recommendations and how they would help me. For the first time in over 10 years I feel like steps are being taken to decrease my pain and allow me to live a more active life!

Excellent pain and spine facility! I've been to several that were not much more than drug dealers and PASS is the real thing. Very professional, no raising doses to hit quotas, regular testing to insure patients are not abusing any services. Don't even come here if you don't want to get better - this is a legitimate doctor's program, always looking to help their patients.

My experience with Pain and Spine Specialists has finally given me hope after many years of chronic pain. After deciding that spine problems with accompanying pain were a part of getting older for many people including me, my first visit here made me realize there are more options than to just “live with it”. Dr. Badarinath talked about possibilities, and even when we were all doing video-visits, my questions have been answered, and my choices are being considered. They treat patients like the individuals we are. Thanks very much. I am very pleased with my treat thus far.
Bonnie S.
20:24 16 Jul 20
I always come there in pain and leave there relieved. Back pain is terrible, the Dr's and staff are very sympathetic to my pain. My favorite person is Walter. 🙂

8 months ago had four level back fusion. Within three weeks the hardware had failed broke and came apart. The pain was unbearable and I was recommended to Pain & Spine Specialists of Maryland. Never been to a pain clinic before.. Even after three surgeries. So I was a little nervous. Anyway would like to say that I am so glad I did. My primary doctor Bundu has always been very nice and spends as much time as she can helping me get through this tough time. also would like to thank Dr Ralph and a special thanks to Dr Greesh who preformed my steroid injections. He saw the xray the broken hardware and was very concerned in addition changed my pain medication that made my life more tolerable Again thank you all.

I LOVE this place. Dr B and Dr Rao saved my life. In 2014, I could only walk about 15ft and had to use a wheelchair. It happened so quickly to me. I had extreme pain in my back, and legs. My other pain mgmt wouldn't help at all. Dr B gave me some shots in my hips/legs. I walked out of that office with a pain level of a 5. I went home and cried because I felt better for the first time in 3 months. I came back for shots in my back the next week. I've been going here ever since.

Jeremiah is a wonderful doctor... he listens to you. This last appointment I got in and out within 15 minutes but sometimes they do take a long time but I’m sure it’s because they get backed up. But other than that the place is wonderful. Give it a try.

Ive been to pain mgt. Accross the country getting back to Derry, and drs. Altman and injection guru dr. Gandhi are tied as best with dr. Amini in CA! They listen as a person as well as drs! I dont need sedation for my epidurals or shoulder injections any more, and i get to put off another shoulder replacement another year thanks to them! No assembly line or talking down to you, OR treating you like an addict..... they truly are there to help! The whole staff is friendly and helpful, no waiting an hour for an appt., they say 9, yer in in less than 10 min from appt. comfortable enough with them to try the hi R.F. treatment on my neck in spring, so give them a try, ive never heard anyone talk anything but praise!😀

22:27 11 Feb 20
I feel like the doctors should spend a little more time with me as a patient.Getting through to them and talking to a human is virtually impossible. Also getting them to return a phoncall os the same way.I have thought about going back to my old doctor since I have transportation problems worked out. He is closer, very friendly and no issues talking to a person when you call or returning a phone call. I need stronger pain medication in addition with ibuprofen and the doctor will not even hear me out.
Cathern C.

I have been with Dr Rao for 5 years. Between the cheerful and helpful staff (even if it is to reschedule) and the nurses I would never go anywhere else.

I showed up early while the office was at lunch. The pleasant young lady at the front desk checked me in anyway. Everyone in this office was pleasant and knowledgeable. The office is clean.
