Testimonials Hear What Our Patients Say
I have been seeing Dr Garcia or Denise for a little over 2 years now. My experience has been great. They are not a place that just pushes opiod medicine.

-AMBER P.

Everyone was kind and helpful. I was treated with the utmost care. The personal attention was greatly appreciated.

-Shaquandra Monette Porter

Both Doctor and Staff are very warm and friendly. I had bursitis in both hips for years and used a cane. After 1(one) treatment the pain is gone. No longer use a cane.

Great bed side manners. The procedure done on my neck was painless and the improvement in my symptoms is about 85%. Now we are going to address other areas of my back pain.

-Teresa Boswell

Just had my first visit with Dr. Alvarez. It was absolutely wonderful! Dr. Alvarez and the entire office staff were very amicable and supportive. I highly recommend this practice.

Rick and Karen Vowell

Dr. Cannella was one of the most informative and caring doctors I have ever met! He understood the nature of my chronic pain condition, and although he personally couldn’t help me, he referred me to another doctor who is to his knowledge the only doctor in the Houston area that could. Time well spent!!

Melissa Galici

Dr. Garcia is a very caring & thorough doctor. I was in a car accident nearly 2 years ago & have had chronic pain ever since. Although I’m not pain free, Dr Garcia is trying multiple approaches to get to the bottom of the pain. I finally feel hopeful that I may be able to enjoy normal activities again

My most recent visit was to have my medicine pump refilled. Dr. Alvarez was very prompt, his staff very nice and on the ball. He refilled my pump, we talked about an upcoming procedure and I was ready to leave. I really like Dr. Alvarez and his staff.
