I am not sure what the previous reviewer is talking about. Did they even go to this pain clinic? I found Dr. Jayaram and his entire staff very sympathetic and empathetic.


I lost years to this clinic. I was diagnosed earlier with fibrimyalgia (dont we all hate that , it means nothing). I was referred to pain management clinic at St. Vincents. I was ...

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/16/2013

I have seen Dr. Kaur numerous times for injections, both into the spine and trigger point. She has always been kind, genuinely concerned about my wellfare, and always willing to do whatever it takes to alleviate my pain. I can't say enough kind things in support of her and her practice. I would recommend both her and her husband, Dr. Jayaram to anyone without hesitation. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/16/2013

I have seen Dr. Jayaram for trigger point injections (which I didn't even know existed before talking with him), and found great relief through his care. I found him to be funny, engaging and truly interested in my issue and in alleviating the pain that came from it. I would happily see him again and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. I'm not sure what the other posters are talking about, as I have never found Dr. Jayaram to be anything but helpful. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/5/2012

Both my son and I see Dr. Kaur and Pain management and we love it there. Everyone has always been extremely helpful and really nice. My son is only 17 and they don't normally treat people his age but she made and exception for him because I have been seeing her for so long and she has done wonders for me. He broke his back 3 years ago and we have not been able to find any pain clinic that would help give him any relief besides narcotics he didn't want to be on drugs, he failed a year of school because of it, he could concentrate, he ended up having to be home schooled the following year and this year, well it's his senior year and he really just wanted to be able to enjoy and go back to regular school and be there with his girlfriend and his other friends. With Dr. Kaur's help he is able to do that over the last 4 months she has gotten him to the point where he can stand, sit, walk, lay down and sleep without being in constant agononizing pain. As a mother it makes me cry to see him actually enjoying life again. \r For myself I have so many different things going on, and have seen so many doctors that no one would help me with my pain, they just wanted to keep giving me oxycodone every day 3-4 times a which just caused more and more migraines, I was miserable, I live with so much pain that on a pain scale I was at a 8-9 every single day with all over body pain, but every pain doctor that I went to said that I had to choose one place that hurt and then they could help me, they wouldn't treat all over body pain. Until I met Dr. Kaur, when I sat down with her and told her everything and she said I can help you, here is what we can do, and told me all my different options, i immediately broke down and started sobbing, she was the first person to tell me they could help me. And she has done just that. Don't get me wrong I still have pain but it is so much more manageable, I can live my life and enjoy my children and do things again, I live each day hovering most days around a 5 some days a 4 which to me is WONDERFUL!!!! I thank god everyday for brining Dr. Kaur into my life. I hope the people who did not have a good experience are able to find someone to help them they way Dr. Kaur helped my son and I. PS My mom is going to start seeing her next month, and my oldest son who just retired from the marines is going to see her next month for an injury he received while serving. Dr. Kaur really is an amazing doctor. more

I lost years to this clinic. I was 2/7/2012

I lost years to this clinic. I was diagnosed earlier with fibrimyalgia (dont we all hate that , it means nothing). I was referred to pain management clinic at St. Vincents. I was immediately put on a Fentanyl patch. Years later I managed to drag myself off of the couch and get a new doctor. He has slowly weaned me off of the patch (I had to go through horrible withdrawal) and did xrays and MRI's showing that I have been living with subluxations of the spine all along, with the pain masked by the patch. Years of being drugged, not really living. I have a lot of anger and grief because of losing myself in that Fentanyl fog for those years.\r Kim more

Terrible Experience 11/30/2011

My experience with PMC has been absolutely terrible. I came to the office with ten years of history of treatment from previous specialists, general practitioners, and pain-management folks. The first thing that PMC wanted to do was send me out for regular repeating appointments for efforts that have already repeatedly failed in the past. Dr. Jayaram also demanded that I submit to spinal injections from him, despite having had them on several occasions with no positive results. PMC also demands that all patients begin seeing one of their two psychologists for chronic pain. The psychologists also have fairly bad reviews and insurance coverage is spotty. Basically, just to get a monthly visit with these guys you will need to also be regularly paying for and attending physical therapy, occupational therapy, and psychology appointments. I don't know about everyone else, but I have a job and am not wealthy - the therapy appointments and psychologist will want to see you weekly, so you are looking at dumping a lot of time and money - and I'm very sure that PMC is getting kickbacks from these other groups. Most of these efforts are redundant and unneeded, but if you do not want to attend Dr. Jayaram will kick you out of treatment. The Nurse Practitioner (who almost always is the one to see you) is extremely rude, the treatments offered are typically a waste of time and money, and you will always be treated as a drug seeker. I recommend finding alternative care. more

Dr. Kaur-Jayaram (Dr. Jayaram's wife) is horrid. 5/26/2010

My husband and I were referred to Pain Management Consultants by our regular doctor after a car accident. The insurance company would not allow us to see the same doctor so I got Dr. Jayaram and my husband got Dr. Kaur. Dr. Kaur can't keep patients straight. On one recent appointment she spoke to him as if he was a new patient, and when we were confused and reminded her that he had been there before she told us in a very snotty tone that she was _sure_ that he was a new patient. She told us that her clinic does not treat ""acute"" pain instances so if something happened and the pain increased dramatically, she wanted him to see another doctor, take whatever was prescribed, then report it to her and make an appointment to see her. This was backed up when my husband's sciatica got so bad that he was bed ridden. I called and tried to make an appointment. The office staff told me that because it was an ""acute instance"" that my husband should see his regular doctor. His regular doctor doesn't like to do paperwork and apparently, when auto-insurance is paying the bills, there is a lot of paperwork so she had already transfered the entire case over to Pain Management and would not see him for anything resulting from the accident. I called Pain Management back and told them that his regular doctor wouldn't see him and the staff there told me to take my husband to the emergency room. We were, of course, treated like drug seekers despite very clearly stating that we were NOT looking for pain medication, but instead he needed something to relax the spasmed muscles enough to release the sciatic nerve. They gave him a very low dose of a muscle relaxer which lasted all of one week and did not help in the slightest. I called Pain Management again and was told, again, that it was still ""acute"" and they would not see him. So I found an osteopath who was taking new patients. That doctor prescribed Percocet for breakthrough pain to take the ""acute"" out of the situation so he could go back to the pain clinic. We hadn't gotten the prescription filled yet when my husband called to report the new medication to Pain Management and set up a follow appointment. When he told them that he'd been given a prescription for Percocet they _completely_ freaked out and when he went in today to pick up his normal prescription with them, they refused to give it to him unless he handed over the one he got from the other doctor. He did so and they were very rude. After all of this mess, I received a call from Dr. Kaur's assistant. She listened to me explain the ""acute"" business and how I'd called many times and what I'd been told. When I was done she told me that there were no records of those calls and did I have the names of the people I spoke with. Of course I'd been an idiot and not written the names down. Then she told me that no one in their office would ever have said the things I reported to her and that Dr. Kaur was passing the entire case back to our original doctor and refused to see my husband anymore because he'd gone and gotten a prescription from someone else, _exactly like she said he could as long as he reported it to her which he did_!!! I know this is long and involved but you need to understand, before you set foot in that snakes office, what you're in for. She doesn't give patients any respect and those of us to dare to do our own research and question her methods are treated even worse. She will treat you like a drug seeker then prescribe you large amounts of morphine. My husband went from nothing to 80mg of morphine twice a day! It made him so sick he could barely function! He's now down to 15mg 3x's a day and doing much better but we had to fight her tooth and nail to get her to reduce it because of course, she knew better. If you're looking for a compassionate and wise doctor who will listen to your concerns and give them thought, Dr. Navnit Kaur-Jayaram is NOT a doctor that you'll want. Cons: Doesn't listen, cold, rude, condescending, and more. more

Not compassionate. Big push to sell spinal cord stimulators. Found Nurse Practioner arrogant! 9/10/2007

When I raised a concern related to my treatment that I read (and presented) from the prestigious and respected publication, JAMA, the Nurse Practioner responded, ""Jama, shwama, bama. That's not how we see it in this clinic!"" more
