I have had this miserable, depressing, chronic pain all my adult life. Dr. Carlisle has taken a direct approach with my treatment of medication and facet injections. With Dr. Carlisle, treatment for my chronic pain is under control. Dr. Carlisle has a caring bedside manner and is genuinely concerned about my well-being. Dr. Carlisle has saved my life. –  DM
