"Dr. Maxey is an amazing, patient, kind, and understanding doctor. Without his help, I wouldn’t be walking again. I came to Dr. Maxey after being told nothing else could be done for my Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (sometimes called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy). I had been in a wheelchair for 4 years and had no quality of life. Dr. Maxey gave me options and hope. He helped me with my medication and told me about new procedure called a Dorsal Root Ganglion Spinal Cord Stimulator. I had a trial for the normal spinal cord stimulator before but it didn’t turn out well. This new DRG Stimulator was completely different though! You can’t even feel the tingling from the stimulator. It helped not only my pain but my other symptoms too, such as the swelling, redness, and most importantly the sensitivity to touch. Because of the procedure, I was able to tolerate physical therapy and start going off my medication. Within months I was using a walker, then a cane, and now I can walk normally. The pain is still there and probably always will be there, but it’s manageable now. When Dr. Maxey helped me go off my medication, he was very patient and kind about it. We did it slowly and never made me feel pressured during the process. I always felt like we were a team and I felt that way about his staff as well. His entire staff are some of the nicest and smartest around. They always went the extra mile to be helpful and are always there to answer my questions. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Maxey especially if you have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome."
