I had been referred to pain management years ago but could not find many accepting new patients. The one I did find and go to horrified me when I saw the patients in the lobby, the filth and disorganization of the staff. Even being in severe pain I refused treatment and walked out. Fast forward through years of suffering to Dr Gu opening an office near me. They contacted my primary Dr. Asking if he had patients in need of their services. My doctor knowing what i had been through with other clinics said yes and referred me. Thank goodness the stars aligned to bring us together. I was able to get an appointment quickly and was very pleased from day one. The facility and staff are very professional and well organized. The lobby is not filled with drug addicts there for pain pills. It is the opposite of the usual pain management clinic. They offer many options and have methods of treatment far beyond stringing you out and keeping you coming back for pain pills. They have truly given me hope that I can live life again. This is a legit medical facility which I highly recommend.

She is the best. A real artist! In 2013, when I went to see her, I was pear shaped; my breasts did not even fill a cup size of AAA. I then had thermage done. My skin looked younger and more contoured. I looked better than I had ever looked in my life. 11 years later my breasts look and feel natural! If I had the finances I would see her in a heart beat! Thank you, Thank you Dr. Blanchet for helping me develop into a confident and out going person!

Dr.Barsanti was very straight forward and was great. I have been in pain for 6 years and when he found out how long I had been in pain was very sympathetic to my situation. He recommended an ESI and it was done the following week, he wanted to do it that day for me but I didn't have a ride. It has been 2 weeks since the ESI and I feel soo much better and its because of him.

Dr Kapoor is very thorough and efficient. I feel like I am always listened to and taken care of in the best possible way. Very caring and attentive. I can get in to see him within a few days or even the same day in case of any emergency issue. Great doctor!!
Tips & Advices
The main difference separating a heart attack from heart failure is in the underlying reasons for the occurrence. Hearts attacks can be traced to blockages in arteries and acute flares, while heart failure is more likely to be due to congenital heart disease and a more developed condition.
Arrhythmia is an abnormal beating of the heart that may feel like it comes at a fluttering, accelerated, or otherwise irregular pace. While in many cases these occurrences can be infrequent, benign and go away on their own, if persistent, they may require further consultation with a cardiologist.
Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fatty body compound used to produce hormones. It becomes a problem for heart health when there are high levels of bad cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), which can lead to arterial congestion.
Visits to a cardiologist typically entail a doctor reviewing and assessing your health, and more specifically within the context of your heart health. It is important to prepare for appointments by having a list of medications and any documents related to your medical history. Some tests (like EKGs) may be administered on a first visit.
Invasive cardiologists are distinguished from non-invasive cardiologists for their ability to perform a number of specialized procedures, including pacemaker and defibrillator insertions, cardioversions and emergent angioplasties.
