  • "I suffered from chronic pain for seven years before finding Dr. Petros. My previous doctor just kept increasing my pills when I told him I had more pain and it was frustrating with how many different medications I was on. I told him that I didn’t want to take so many different medications because I felt they were changing me as a person when I was on them. When I was taking them my personality was a lot different than when I was not on pain medications so I asked my PCP if he could give me a referral to a pain management clinic to see if they had other options for me besides pain medications because at that point my emotions were out of control and I couldn’t even get out of bed to walk my dogs because I was in so much pain. After months of treatment with Dr. Petros I have reduced my medications by 2 fold and I have lost 30 pounds. I feel like myself again now that I am off so many of the pain medications that I was on. The thing that I like best about Dr. Petros is that no matter how bad I’m feeling, he has always positive and showed that he really cared about me not just as a patient but as a person."

  • "Dr. Petros is great. For once I didn’t have to convince a doctor of anything, he knew what was going on and saw that i needed not only to be seen but also heard. That means a lot! Besides that I was also able to restart my medications and trust that he knew what was needed. I feel better today than i have in a very long time and felt like I barely took any medications! That is a God send! I look forward to future appointments instead of dreading them. Thanks again Dr. Petros and his welcoming staff!"
