"Level of care has always been fantastic. P.A. Watson has been my main provider, under Dr. Dar, for a little over 5 years now. He always listens to new developments and has always been the front line man for haggling with my insurance company to get them to approved prescribed interventions. The only issue I have ever had is, occasionally, my prescriptions are not faxed to my pharmacy and I have to wait extra time in order to receive them. This comes as a blow since I have to drive 5-6 hours every three months for appointments and driving for that long(10-12 hours round trip) is absolutely agonizing. By the time I get home, all I want to do is take my pain med dosage and sleep for a few hours to get rid of the severe radicular neuropathy but, am unable to do so because my prescriptions were not faxed. Going to have to start standing there with my pharmacy on the phone to make sure that my prescriptiins are faxed over poste haste....."- J.C. / Google / Mar 16, 2020
To accurately diagnose neuropathy, we take a look at your complete medical history and perform a comprehensive neurological examination. In most cases, a less invasive form of treatment for neuropathy will be recommended initially, such as medications, physical therapy, and other alternative remedies that may include lifestyle changes or acupuncture. If more invasive forms of treatment are needed, these may include nerve stimulation, a nerve block, or steroid injections. The course of treatment recommended for you will vary, depending upon your type of neuropathy and the severity of your condition.
