    Dr Fandos is one of the best doctors for his knowledge of up to date pain management procedures and his concern for his patient well being. He is one of the busiest doctors I know but when you are in the room he is completely attentive to you and never rushed. I have been a patient of his since [...] and recommend him to anybody I know seeking pain management. He has kept me healthy and living a normal life without pain meds by recommending procedures or injections that return me back to my usual activities. He should be given a raise for how hard he works
