.

After seeking treatment for back issues, chronic pain and post surgical pain for well over a decade I finally found comprehensive treatment that has made a forever change in my life and personal well being. Led by Dr. William Leone, my overall treatment has been highly effective!

I came in a total skeptic after living in pain for so long and seeking help from other good physicians who had answers of heavy drugs and surgery. I hated the drugs and their effect on my life. I finally broke down and had surgery with a great physician and it helped in ways but caused new problems as well. Even after new medications and therapy were introduced, the pain was constant and I did not know what to do.

I did seek alternative treatment in one Nashville office because of seeing a advertisements, which I found did not represent them appropriately. They were actually chiropractors, not MD's (managing physician out there "somewhere") and should never have been allowed to give me injections around my spine! They did not have the proper equipment, facilities or professionals in place. A few hours after they performed one series of 15 injections around my spine, I had a tremendous spinal headache. I was scared, called them and they told me to take some Excedrin. I keep calling because it didn't go away and it was so bad my teenager had to drive me. Only after walking into their office crying to see a MD for help did they tell me there were none on site and they were only chiropractors and could not help - go to "your doctor" they said.... Assumed that's what I was doing.

Needless to say, I was not anxious to try again! I did finally visit Dr. Leone on the referral of a friend. I am sure I seemed to be a very tough patient and was highly skeptical of his ability to help or introduce me to anything I had not already tried. He looked at my surgery scar and mentioned the way he would need to inject me so I would not get a spinal headache -- I had not even told him that had happened to me! Confidence was gaining.... He talked to me about my lifestyle and past history. He then asked if I would allow him to try and help me and we would watch the results as a team to see what truly made a positive impact on my life.

Well, I went in to his surgery center for my injections and the experience itself was like a night and day, not to mention the results. I received only a couple of injections that day and a couple more 2 weeks later. After 4 years of being on medication for intense sciatic pain, within days I was totally off of the drug and haven't been back on it. The series of injections is typically done in 3 but because I was better already he did not even schedule a third.

He also introduced me to a new medication delivered via a patch system (like a nicotine patch) which provides a steady stream of low dose medication for chronic pain. It helped me tremendously!! I need to function at a high level and not feel "drugged" and this was the first pharmaceutical that had done that for me. It was such a new (expensive) drug that my insurance did not cover it at all. However, his office called my insurance carrier and in a day it was ready for me to pick up under my co-pay only. They did all of the work to make that happen on my behalf.

I have a very different quality of life now and I believe I have a physician who really cares about helping me. He doesn't just want to push drugs or unnecessary treatments or waste my valuable time. I do know that there are other good doctors out there but for true lifestyle pain management my confidence and experience tell me that Dr. Leone is the best Middle Tennessee has to offer people in need.

Dr. Leone has proven to me, and to others who have watched my change, to be a physician who understands the needs of a professional working individual living with chronic pain.

This DR. Needs his licence pulled. The clinic is all about how much money they make and do not care about the wellbeing of your health. He is very rude & the worst Dr. I have ever been to. someone needs to close them down before they really hurt somebody. if you have ever been there you know what I'm talking about.

Pros: none

Cons: you wait forever to see a PA AND THEY DONT LISTEN EITHER

This pain mgmt clinic will see you once (Doctor face-to-face), then a PA will dispense narcotics regularly. I went there for many years, and only saw an actual DR. 2x. Also, they change billing to give the impression your seeing multiple DR's.

I went to Dr. Leone as a referral from my regular pain management Dr. I met with Dr. Leone and had a thorough exam and am planning to have the stimulator trial soon (November 2008). He was extremely professional and attentive to my questions. He answered my questions with straight answers not a hem haw beat around the bushes type person. Agreed with my current regimen of meds.
Pros: Attentive,straight forward.
Cons: Very busy office,long wait,no pain management group will prescribe Soma.Had to quit taking Soma cold turkey after 14 yrs of taking it. Haven't found any muscle relaxer that will actually work for me. Have tried them all and maxed out on them and had others added to them to try to get relief.

I first met Dr. Leone in 1995 at the Nashville V.A. Med. Ctr. pain clinic. At that time I had a bulging disc between L-5 & S-1. I received a series of Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections which gave me 95% relief. As i got older my spine worsened. He has personally performed several procedures in the last 13 years that have honestly given me my life back. I play golf regularly, bowl, have completed Nursing School and live a normal life. I was rolling out of bed to my knees and then standing up before I met Dr. Leone. My wife is also a patient of his. In 2002 she had back trouble and was off work for two weeks. I took her to see Dr. Leone and he treated her for arthiritis of the spinal canal. She received a series of Lumbar Injections and returned to work in a week. She went to see him three years later when she started having some back pain and received another series of Lumbar injections. Since then she has been pain free. I myself have been pain free. I now take my father-in-law to Dr.Leone and he has had injections at another pain clinic in Nashville with no improvement. When I brought him to Dr. Leone, he and his staff went after what was causing him pain. He has had care on his right side of his back and is pain free and now he is beginning care on his left side. He is 76 years old and says he will go to no one except Dr. Leone for his back pain.

Dr. William Leone is a wonderful, caring man who cares about the general well being of all poeple that come to see him. My family and I refer alot of people to the Pain Mgmt. Group who report having good results.
Thank You Bill
Bruce

I saw this pain clinic director at my personal care physician's recommendation after moving to Nashville from Iowa. An LPN performed the entire exam. He did not examine me at all. I had all of my medical records with me and all my bottles of pills. She took the information to him and shortly afterwards he entered the room, introduced himself and told me that my current treatment was wrong because the medication I was on was ineffective. (I've been taking medication for 4 years for relief of severe chronic pain and it's the only thing that has helped substantially). He didn't give me a chance to explain this. He stated that certain medications lose their effectiveness, but this was not the case for me. I take 30 mg/day and have been for 4 years with the same effectiveness. Then he said he had a procedure that was a spinal stimulator. It is an invasive procedure that I've had the option of taking before, but upon doing research, only about 50% of people that have had the procedure get about 50% pain relief. I don't believe in fixing something that isn't broken. When I told him that I was not interested, he offered no more information, did not try to explain it to me at all. He merely looked away and quickly walked out of the room muttering "iI can't have you as a patient".
Such behavior I've never seen in my 48 years, and I've seen 30+ doctors in that time.

In summation, he performed no exam, read very little if any of my medical history I provided him, asked no questions about the effectiveness of my current treatment, gave me no information on the particular procedure he had in mind and was very rude and
unprofessional in his behavior. I would not recommend this guy to anyone in pain since he didn't include my in my treatment in any way. My opinions and thoughts did not matter to this guy.
