Dr Jessop is great. He is very knowledgeable and understands my problem.

September 30, 2013

I was extremely pleased with the care that I received. I would highly recommend the Pain Management Clinic to anyone in need.

July 22, 2013

Dr. Jessop and his staff are great!

May 28, 2013

I really like Dr. Jessop. He really made me understand that I needed to seek help for my depression/anxiety before my pain could be better managed. He showed a caring and compassion attitude. I do think I need more pain medication to assist with my level of comfort and he does not seem to want to help me with this.

felt very good about care provider & his concern about my questions

January 14, 2013

Dr. Jessop took a lot of quality time explaining and informing us on information at our visit. Very friendly and kind.

January 07, 2013

Dr. Jessop has a wonderful bedside manner. I feel like he has my best interests of total health and healing at heart, but is honest and realistic with expectations. Unfortunately, in my case there doesn't seem to be any easy answers for treatment. Although this is disheartening and at times even devastating I appreciate all the time and effort given to support me in healing.

December 22, 2012

I do not believe that we are working toward any sort of resolution.

December 19, 2012

uncomfortable I do not like being poked at or touched. The doctors talked to themselves as if I were a statue in the room not a person most of the time.

December 19, 2012

Its very difficult dealing with chronic pain on a daily basis, let alone moving and having to change docs. I can honestly say this time it has been a VERY easy transition to make. Unlike my previous experience. I feel like im being treated again as a whole, rather than just a pump refill.

November 26, 2012

All of the care providers were above the normal in caregiving and information.

October 15, 2012

I wish I was seeing Dr Jessop and his fellow under different circumstances. I'd love to have them over for a bbq. :) Really great people.

October 03, 2012

This was my initial examination, so findings and a plan for follow up was not discussed at this time.

September 25, 2012

The staff at the Pain Clinic has always been above and beyond what I expect. Their degree of professionalism is phenomenal, as well as the knowledge they have. They are excellent at including the patient in decisions regarding care. This service has to be the best, consistently, of any care I have received at the U of U.

September 10, 2012

I apprecciate the time taken to tell me about the procedures given.

September 03, 2012

I see Lynn with physical therapy, Dr Jessop and his Fellow. These people are AMAZING at what they do. Whenever I leave there I feel like I've spent time with a couple of friends. The genuine concern they have for me is apparent.

September 03, 2012

Team (doctor, therapist, psychologist) is very good, very caring. It is the setting and staff that need attention.
