    My pain management physician is Dr. Luis Pagani(Clifton)and have been his patient for the last 7 years. He is the best physician that I have ever had. Smart, great personality. He changed my life. I would cast my vote for him as the best pain management physician in the city.

    Dr Luis Pagani was my first pain management dr. I knew nothing of narcotics, didn’t know their names, what they should be prescribed for, how much, how often etc. I had a “failed” back surgery by Dr. C. T. Lee, part of Bethesda Group at the time as was Pagani. Dr. Lee referred me to Pagani a year after my “failed” back surgery despite my repeated complaints to him that something was wrong.

    After hours of waiting in a cramped, usually standing room only, depressing office space filled with miserable looking people and miserable ONE woman office staff I saw Pagani. First thing he asked was, “what would you like?” To my amazement I replied, “I have no idea! That’s why I’m seeing a physician.” That was the question each time I saw him, “what would you like”, or “what do you want” meaning drugs!

    I eventually developed a crushed sciatic nerve with drop foot. Despite my pleas and informing him I had to be ambulanced from my home at 4:00 am to the emergency room, he let it go for an additional week. Finally he ordered a late night MRI at his facility which I was to return the next day to get the results. After sitting 2 hours on my crushed nerve (which by now was dead, numb waist down & I was feeling no pain) he called me into the exam room and went to look at my MRI. Comes rushing in saying, “Marie lay down, lay down right now. You need emergency surgery, we’ve got to find a surgeon”. Calls his office girl tells her to start dialing for ANY available spine surgeon. Very reassuring feeling!

    He did get a surgeon. I was sent directly to his office. He looked at my situation and was just disgusted. Said I would be having emergency spine surgery first thing next morning. Couldn’t make any guarantees my foot wouldn’t be dropped for life, or that my leg would function. This surgery was simply to try to save the leg he explained. Three months later I would then need a 2 level fusion.

    After the emergency surgery I asked my new wonderful surgeon if he had seen anything that may have been causing me severe pain since my original surgery by Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee, who was over an hour late for his FIRST surgery of the day which was mine, had left a piece of disc matter floating in my spine. It had calcified, developed sharp edges on it and a mystery slime. My new surgeon said in all his years he had never seen anything like. I asked if it could have been causing my pain all this time, which was 5 years, he sadly shook his head yes.

    I sent for Dr. Lee’s office notes as I had demanded an MRI when I was still under his care after surgery. He had told me it showed nothing. However, I discovered the MRI tech reported seeing disc matter in the spine. Dr. Lee stated, “he disagreed”, then dumped me into Bethesda pain management with Dr. Pagani, who could himself read Dr. Lee’s notes on his computer. Both doctors knew, both doctors said nothing as I went from doctor to doctor including the Cleveland Clinic trying to find out what was wrong. I believe, Dr. Pagani, who eventually had me on morphine, fentynal patches and pills for “break through” pain c0ntrol, did so to help cover up a botched surgery by a fellow doctor at Bethesda.

    From my experience, Pagani shouldn’t be allowed to “practice” medicine. I wouldn’t refer my worst enemy to his “medical practice”. I was QUITE shocked to learn he was still practicing and it compelled to post this. Stay away, stay far away!
