too hard to get appointments to recommend

December 12, 2016

I did not feel like the doctor listened to me, and I did not feel like she had empathy or compassion for my problems. She did not treat my pain aggressively enough, and I had no improvement in my pain over the last 6 weeks.

November 24, 2016

We enjoyed that she sat down with us and was very attentative.

October 25, 2016

she is incredible I've never had a doctor more involved and understanding that listens and that's a big one that listens and fixes the problem the best she can she is a gift and the university is all the better because she's there

September 23, 2016

you could not improve on this experience ... again, world class!

August 21, 2016

She is the best

August 20, 2016

Dr. Allan did such a great job, the procedure was done and I didn't even know it.

August 16, 2016

We have been very discouraged until now. thankyou

August 13, 2016

very kind and knowledgeable

June 02, 2016

Very good experience, giving me good confidence in the doctor's skills and judgment.

May 27, 2016

The clinic experience was good overall, but zero improvement in my symptoms at this point.

May 13, 2016

was very disappointed!!!!!

May 06, 2016

Dr.'s Hagen and Allen were very professional and caring

April 06, 2016

felt rushed. like not all my questions were being answered.

March 14, 2016

I like the interdisciplinary approach of the pain management clinic.

February 26, 2016

I like that the doctor explains everything so that I understand what is needed and what the next step is to get me through this process

January 09, 2016

I was told in the beginning that I would have a team working on my case Doctor/Psychologist/Physical therapist . After many many visits I come a crossed a medicine that helped me tremendously and sent a My Chart message to my doctor updating her on what I had found. That is when I learned the doctors don't read the messages. I then began to feel like just a number , not a patient , I also felt like the Doctor just relied on the physical therapists . I did respect the fact that after I asked what the Doctors plans were for me she replied she didn't have any more ideas for me other than more physical therapy. I realized that they are to busy to really be a team discussing my case.

December 08, 2015

Dr. Hagn thoroughly explained my diagnosis in a manner that gave me hope.

November 20, 2015

on one really explained to me what my problem was with my knee when they spoke to one another they used words I didn't understand and when the doctor came in she never really explained to me what was going on maybe I should have asked questions but I was nervous I still really don't know what's wrong with my name but I know there is a problem

November 01, 2015

Dr. Hagn took criticism well and apologized for previous visits in which I felt she did not communicate in a proper manner

October 09, 2015

Dr. Hagn goes from being on guard to being caring. I do not like feeling like she is suspicious of me with regards to pain medication, but then will turn around and show some positive behaviors with regards to my recovery. I am sure she deals with people who aren't forthcoming with her but I too have dealt with many doctors who haven't been forthcoming or with me. She should remember she is not above patients and she is a person just like her patients.

September 15, 2015

Dr. Hagn was great. The team I worked with was great and had a very positive experience. It was unfortunate that my pain did not go away, but it was not because they did not try. They provided some tools, but it's something that I have to live with. I really wish we would have had better results, but I never felt like they were disinterested in my care. Quite the opposite, they put a lot of effort into treatment.

August 21, 2015

I loved listening to the "shop talk" and watching the procedure until my neck on the right side started to feel really thick and I couldn't look that way anymore. I think Dr. Hagn is a great doctor and instructor. Her explanation of what was happening and how to do it was amazing and I understood everything until I got too tired to hear her. I loved it though.

August 11, 2015

Dr. Hagen is extremely skilled and very personable.

August 05, 2015


August 04, 2015

Dr. Hagn is great, at first she has a hard exterior, but after she has seen you a couple of times you see a very caring person. She does not spend a lot of time with you, but the time spent is quality.

July 09, 2015

My care provider is Emily Hagen and she's been amazing to me through everything I've dealt with, spends as much time as I need to talk about things and never makes me feel like she's in a hurry to get out of there like most Dr.s. Really explains things perfect so I understand all aspects good and bad things about the treatment options and has shown so much concern for my problem. Feels like she's my best friend this whole time it helps 100% I just love her couldn't ask for a better care provider than her.

June 18, 2015

My care provider has been Emily Hagen and she is amazing. Very helpful,shows tremendous concern,and makes you feel like there's hope to beat anything. She is super smart and answers my questions way fast and gives me alternative options I never thought about. Again the comfort this facility puts out is fantastic.

June 12, 2015

I like Dr. Hagn very much, she takes the time to explain things throughly

April 18, 2015

My automatic assumption when Dr hagen came in the room and started talking to me was that she didn't like me. When she was done talking, I didn't know she was done, she just got up and walked away.

December 11, 2014

I would surely Recommend these Drs to help anyone that I was aware of that might be struggling with pain!

October 05, 2014

My experiences are limited to only two visits. My opinion is therefore is very superficial. However, I am impressed with my visits so far & feel hopeful

September 19, 2014

Tired of just getting pills shoved at me and sent on my way to see if they work or not. I am glad she referred me to Dr. Cunniff and to the Pain Clinic for long term pain management.

September 13, 2014

Dr. Hagen is great!

September 13, 2014

I was seen by the physical therapist and I believe a physician's assistant. Both her and him were knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. Still having lots of anxiety over my situation but hopefully through the treatment plan I will feel better about what is going to transpire. Dr Hagn was fine though didn't shake my hand (said it is flu season and she is pregnant so I understand). She was with me approximately 3 minutes or so leaving her associates to do the interviewing and exam for her which was quite all right as well. She has wonderful staff representing her and that I felt good about.

September 11, 2014

I know they take extra care to help me leave in the best of feeling, physically and emotionally. It is difficult to explain.

September 07, 2014

The fellow was very prompt and helpful. Dr Hagn was also very prompt and helpful. THis was the fastest and best appointment I have had. They both spent a lot of time explaining what I should do and listening to me.

August 27, 2014

Realizing that I am not an expert in medicine, only in my own pain and discomfort, I am relieved that I can understand the explanation of what the suggested treatment will be. They listen to my concerns and I never feel that I'm not being heard. They haven proven that.

August 03, 2014

This is the best pain management office I have been with. I like how they work with me towards my goals

July 24, 2014

Dr. Hagan continues to work with me to explore every way to help me have the best quality of life.

July 03, 2014

experience with all the Doctors when fine.

July 01, 2014

I have been with this caregiver for many years very happy with them always have been always will be and would recommend them

June 23, 2014

They really didn't spend much time with me. It seemed rather rushed and impersonal.

June 19, 2014

My initial visit at the Pain Clinic was terrible!!! Included in the very small exam room were the MD, the Resident, a PT and a Med Student whom they FAILED to introduce or ask my permission for her to be there. She just sat there and observed. All in All, It was a difficult experience for me. An initial conversation with all of them bombarding me with questions. The exam was terrible! Again 3 out of 4 people prodding and probing me. Not keeping me covered, pushing, shoving etc. I was embarrassed and frustrated!!! Neither the MD or Resident had looked at my records which were online at My Chart. When I inquired they were blank, then they looked at them, talked amongst themselves, excused themselves for about 30 minutes and came back in, a very brief conversation and then that was it. A week later when I returned the Resident came in, sat down and told me there was nothing they could do for me and that was that! He could not explain why not!! Then the MD came in and basically said the same, again with no explaining. Then sent me to Dr. Eteninger the next week. I enjoyed him and have seen him a few times. In our first visit I told him what I had been told. He was surprised since they had sent him a treatment plan. I've been back a few times and this week I saw another PT whom I really liked. Their treatment plan is for another issue I have that had nothing to do with the original reason I was sent. All in all I was Ok with the visit, but the first visit still hangs over my

May 04, 2014

Dr Hagan, and the entire staff, are endlessly diligent in working to find ways to alleviate my pain and improve my quality of life.Dr. Joule (I have probably misspelled his name) has been exceptionally kind as well.thank you

March 23, 2014

The procedure was very painful. It left a very large hematoma that was still present 7 days later. I did not realize how uncomfortable I would be the days following the procedure.

March 03, 2014

did not like her bedside manner or her opionion Dr. Hagn :/

February 22, 2014

Dr. Hagn is a wonderful doctor

February 03, 2014

The doctor herself seemed rushed. She would ask me a question and finish the answer for me. The PT was present at that point and seemed much more involved in my comments and what was going on.

January 31, 2014

Love Dr Hagn

January 18, 2014

From my first visit I have appreciated Dr. Hagn's concern and care, and each visit continues with this same attitude. She is a fine representative of the pain clinic. Poor quality of care, previous to my visits, brought me to your clinic.

January 15, 2014

Dr. Hagan has been involved in my treatment since I started coming to pain clinic. She is very sensitive to my needs and works with the rest of the staff to provide the best possible care.

December 20, 2013

Dr Hagn is the best!

December 04, 2013

Both Dr. Becker and Dr. Hagn took extra time to ensure I had all my questions addressed. Dr. Hare also poked his head in to check on me. The procedures were flawless and I have no constant migraine. Very grateful for the physicians. Just shows how much they really care about their patients and the progress they make toward healing.

November 26, 2013

Dr. Hagn, Becker and Hare all visited with me and informed my of changes and made sure all of my questions, and who I was suppose to follow up with.

November 22, 2013

This doctor is horrible. I would not recommend her.

November 22, 2013

Dr. Hagan's treatment hasn't always been easy, but my chronic condition has significantly improved under her care. I feel better then I ever have since my diagnosis 12 years ago. She has been encouraging and kind. When I exceed my goals she is proud, when I miss my goals she helps me find other solutions. I'm truely grateful for all her help.

November 20, 2013

Dr Hagn is the best.

November 09, 2013

Dr Hagn is absolutely awesome. THE BEST.

November 01, 2013

Dr. Hagn was assisting Dr. Junkins, since he is out, and she was very helpful. Took as much time as we needed and was very concerned. She was able to get me another appointment the next day for an infusion, which was needed very badly.

October 15, 2013

at last after seeing many doctors over the past 10 years i see a solution to my pain. they are addressing the cause, not masking it with meds. they are also helpin me to get off the oxycodone that other doctors have prescribed over these many years.

October 09, 2013

Dr Hagn is amazing

August 03, 2013

Dr Hagn is wonderful. Sometimes the clinic overall seems a bit rushed or frantic; the drs come and go out of the room instead of sitting down and finishing with me then going to someone else, sometimes it feels like they're inning between rules juggling lots of people

July 30, 2013

Dr. Hagn is informed, concerned and very good at her job. I feel very fortunate to be under her care.

May 14, 2013

All 3 providers were wonderful. They all have plans to get me healthier. Since I don't see anyone for another month, I decided to begin working on my own to get closer to the goals we discussed on my own. I feel more hopeful then I have in a long time. I seem to be on the same page with them so far, which was a relief. This will be a huge change in my life, and all three providers gave me hope.

April 08, 2013

I would recommend you and your staff to anyone. Keep up the great service.
