MIPM Can Help With physical medicine and rehabilitation
“I got sick when I was fourteen, and am now twenty and currently on medical leave from nursing school. I have seen countless doctors and pain specialists, but Dr. Aurora and his team have been the best. No one has been more caring, kind and considerate than Dr. Aurora has and I recommend him to anyone with any condition. I truly believe he will treat you with the utmost respect and will work as hard as he possibly needs to in order to give you the best care possible. I am incredibly grateful for all he has done for me and continues to do. I know that every time I contact him or someone from his team, they will work with great urgency to find a solution to my problem. When your illness takes over your life like mine has, you need to find someone you trust to care for you, and Dr. Aurora is that person for me and my family.”
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Arora for a while now and have been impressed with his extensive expertise in pain management and conditions that cause chronic pain. He has a compassionate, caring and gentle ‘bedside manner’. He really does listen. I feel I am a part of my care as he seems to have a team approach. I have a couple of different issues going on and he is treating each of them. Prior to my first visit with him I was in unbearable pain, I felt like I just couldn’t take one more day of it. He did nerve ablations and steroid injections himself. I was really nervous and fearful about the nerve ablations but his calm & soft demeanor made me very comfortable. The combinations of nerve ablations, injections and medication have enabled me to participate in life more and I am so very grateful for that. He is continuing to treat chronic pain I have as a result of failed back surgery. He has referred me to Dr. Polly at the U of M for consultation (who is also wonderful to work with) & it looks like I will be having surgical repairs. The staff at MIPM are very professional and easy to work with as well. I really don’t know what I would do without Dr. Arora’s very competent treatment and care. I just cannot say enough about him and would recommend him to anyone for pain management.”
“Oh my God! Dr Arora after 3 days post injection in my left buttocks I thought I was doomed there was no change in my pain level, then all of a sudden the pain melted away it was like I was a new man. I was in pain constantly and the best part of my day was for about an hour when I first woke up, only to go downhill throughout the day.
At bedtime I was in so much pain I wanted to put a gun to my head. The Botox along with the steroid injections has given me a new lease on life. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou you are my hero, I am able to walk and sit and stand , play golf all pain free. the only limitations is the distance I can walk is still limited but at the moment it is without the severe pain I have come to bite the bullet. My wife thinks she has a new man living with her.
It has become a new way of life, I tell you that living from one dose of pain killers to the next dose all day every day I am now weaning myself from the constant dosage of pain meds with the goal of getting off the pain meds altogether that day is coming and it is thanks to you. If you ever need me to talk to your other patients just let me know, i would be happy to recommend you and your talents. Thanks again to you and your staff.”
“Dr. Arora is the only medical provider who has helped me manage my pain! After a severe car accident in 2012 I have been seeing a chiropractor regularly, and I have been to multiple specialists about the pain in my neck and shoulders. I have even gone through PT, but the pain was just getting worse instead of better! I started to think that I was crazy and the pain was all in my head. Dr. Arora was patient with me as I considered what types of pain treatment I wanted to explore and never pressured me to make any choice that I didn’t understand or wasn’t completely comfortable with. Not only is Dr. Arora a wonderful MD, but he expertly performed my recent nerve ablation surgery himself and it was very effective! I would highly recommend Dr. Arora and his staff to anyone who is struggling with chronic pain, or pain related to an accident. I feel secure and at ease knowing that he is my resource for pain management in the future!”
“I really enjoyed being taken care of here at MIPM I strongly believe that they take great care of their patients. They treat us like family and always are flexible with scheduling. Thank you for treating me.”
“Dr. Arora was very kind and patient. For the first time, in a long time I did not have to plead about how much pain a flare up cause my spine. He treated me like an adult and respected my choice(s). I was impressed that he recalled that in a few months, I will be traveling and will have a flare-up usually after the flights. He wanted to make sure I had pain control after those visits. He put in orders to start physical therapy and I agreed. I will post after that visit next week-but if the therapist are like him-I think that I have finally found a really nice doctor and staff who listen.”
“I have been coming to Minnesota Institute for Pain Management for 7 years. The staff have been great and very helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Arora and his team.”
