I received a lumbar transforaminal epidural injection recently and truly the doctor and his staff were amazing. This is normally super frightening to me and the staff in the procedure room were comforting, particularly the anesthetist, Paula Sue Rose. I sailed through the procedure feeling very grateful for their comfort and help. The doctor answered all questions to my satisfaction.

Excellent!!! During my first visit with Dr. Crooks he had already reviewed my MRI, previous doctor notes, and images. I felt very welcomed with Dr. Crooks and Ramona his nurse! They are both very knowledgeable and caring! My pain is in my cervical area, Dr. Crooks and I disgusted my treatment plan and he thoroughly explained everything to me. I just moved to Arizona from Florida and he has been an excellent Physician! I received a few injections, due to being terribly in pain on my first office visit. I was able to schedule my procedure 2 days later. I was so thankful to have it scheduled! He is truly an amazing Doctor! I would definitely recommend Dr. Crooks! I felt he treated his patients as if they were his own family. He actually took the time to discuss what concerns you have, and what he recommended, and could help with. I am a patient at the Scottsdale office and the staff was very helpful as well. I can not say enough good things about Dr. Crooks! Ramona also was a very sweet, caring, and a magnificent Nurse. She took her time with you as well and I never felt rushed or as if they were to busy to take on a new patient. Definitely an outstanding and wonderful Doctor!

Matthew "Dr. Miracle-worker" Crooks was my latest attempt since 2002 of four other "back specialists". Matthew having studied my previous MRIs decided that RFA was the most likely treatment for success while being the least invasive. He setup an aggressive schedule and only 3 days ago I had my first Lumbar right side RFA. His staff have the process down to a very quick 15-30 minute procedure (although with sedation I remember nothing from when Matthew came in the room until just before my wife drove me home). In total honesty the very next morning is the first time in ten years that I have had NO pain at all, easily stood up straight and wasn't grasping for every wall or counter top as had become normal when attempting to walk. Having not used sedation for the test procedures I know that the scheduling, preparatory, procedure and followup staff were very polite and fun yet super professional at their jobs. After 3 days I am feeling random Lumbar area pain in specific locations, duration, and intensity as the nerves fight their eventual desensitizing of 12-18 pain free months! Danielle, Juliet, Romona, Jay, Kathy, Danny, and Dr. Miracle Worker (and anyone I missed) - MANY THANKS!!

I can not say enough good things about Dr Crooks and the Pinnacle Pain Staff/Team. I had back pain for nearly 3 years and Dr. Crooks has given me the ability to a full night sleep after my procedure. I was hesitant at first as I fear injections but the staff and Dr Crooks do such a great job at making me feel better. I greatly appreciate his time and consideration, he is a very caring person and a GREAT physician. I highly recommend PPSC- Thank you Dr Crooks!!!!

I came to Dr Crooks with a number of issues which prevented me from living a full and enjoyable life. In a few months Dr Crooks has me back on the golf course, bending over to wash my face and able to lift my leg enough to pull slacks on. I had almost given up thinking I’d ever be able to perform any of these simple tasks and can’t put into words how happy I am every day. Thanks Dr Crooks.

Dr. Crookes is amazing. He was able to get me back to a high level of functioning. After 3 injections I am able to work out like before and able to perform my job duties. I would refer anyone to Dr. Crookes as he is professional, competent, and helped me avoid surgery thus far.

Dr Crooks is wonderful!! I had been struggling with what I thought was shoulder/scapular pain for at least a year and a half. Went to the Chiropractor, had tissue work done, dry needling, you name it but was still in a great deal of discomfort. I saw Dr Crooks who immediately ordered an MRI and determined it was actually pain associated with my neck. The next week he did an injection in my cervical spine and within about 2 weeks I was pain free! I have told all my friends about him! The staff at Pinnacle Pain and Spine were great as well and made me feel very comfortable even though I was a bit nervous at first. :) Thank you everyone!

I was experiencing chronic pain in my Achilles tendons in both legs. My prior visits were to Orthopedists who either recommended physical therapy and anti inflammatories or surgery, neither being satisfactory alternatives or alleviation for my pain. I investigated PRP treatment as an alternative and Dr. Crooks at Pinnacle Pine and Spine, and I’m SO glad I did. PRP is not for everyone. PRP is not covered by insurance and should be evaluated based on your financial standing. But Dr. Crooks objectively assesses each case individually to make sure that the procedure is appropriate for the issues presented, and not all will be treated if he deems it the wrong treatment for the patient. However, he will advise alternatives that he believes would be appropriate. Dr. Crooks establishes wonderful doctor-patient relationships and will answer any questions or concerns. He stands apart from other doctors who simply provide the PRP treatment, using a two stage centrifuge to better separate the plasma for a more effective injectable. Also, he uses an ultrasound for more accurately guided injections. My experience with his staff also was exceptional, especially with Bethany who provided invaluable supplemental information on PRP treatments and their efficacy. At the time of this writing it has been 7 weeks since my last injection. I only had one injection in each leg. I have experienced 85% improvement in my pain and am still healing. I am exercising pain free for the first time in several years and am walking upright, not like a person in pain. I would HIGHLY recommend a visit with Dr. Crooks for pain which you have not been able to relieve with usual methods. He won’t treat you unnecessarily or make untenable promises. This expense was the best investment in my health I have made to date. THANK YOU DR. CROOKS AND THE WONDERFUL STAFF AT PINNACLE PAIN AND SPINE!
